There's some noise on Arthur Morris' blog about oil splatter on the 1DX Mk IIs.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Nothing new as far as I'm concerned. My 1DX does it and so does my new 1DX MKii. In fact the 1Dx MKii came back worse form CPS AFTER cleaning. Not that it's not a PITA but you lean to work with it and around it.

I like to have one that when I hold it the settings change from AI Servo to One Shot.

When you hit the One Shot button to get out of AI Servo, do you have to hold it until you make your shot to keep the camera from reverting back ?

No, Press it until you hear the beep, than take the picture.

Wow, that will be handy! I didn't know.. my recollection from the 5Diii is that you had to keep holding the button down or it'd revert. Glad to hear it's different on the 1Dxii :-)

so it basically operates as another AF-ON button but as One-Shot?

It's not, at least as far as I can tell. It just toggles between One Shot and Servo while you are holding it. Even if it did switch back and forth with each press it would still be redundant if you use BBF, and since you can customize both AF-On and * for BBF using different focus points/zones I find that to be far more useful.

I wish you could set M-Fn2 to switch between your custom shooting modes. It's an option for the M-Fn button next to the shutter release but I found that I inadvertently hit that button all the time when I have the camera hanging on a sling, every time I pick the camera up it's in a different mode because the button got bumped.

I don't know why you would want this if you are using BBF.

Why do you need single shot? Hit BBF in ai servo and then take your finger off. That is single shot focus. My * is set up to change focus points for BIF.

I prefer the beep to know I am in focus. Also every situation does not require Al Servo so it is nice to always have it handy with a press of a button encase some action happens in front of me. The point of my setup is you will always be prepared. Al Servo doesn't always work great with stationary subjects.
