There is just something about the files of the 1Dx2 that I prefer over the 5D4. This was exported out at a 5MB print at 287 PPI. The detail in the 16x24 is some of the best print work I have seen in all my years as a photographer. Really DONT know why everyone thinks we need 30mb, 40mg & 75 mb sensors. I printed these eagles on 20x30 fine art canvas from a company out of Canada. They print for museums. The detail in the prints was unbelievable. So this 1Dx2 is just perfect for anything. From weddings and Portraits to wildlife and sports, the IQ of the prints, the accuracy of the AF systems, the ability to customize and servo performance makes this camera the one to get if you are a canon shooter. Nothing comes close.I also sold a print to a client on a regular print on a 30x40.....OMG the detail in the eagle printed that big was unbelievable. Its hanging above his fireplace.

I have been researching Mirrorless bodies and playing around with the EOS R and a Sony A7iii. While I see some features that are nice with the new technology ( eye focus on the Sonys and no more lens calibration issues or micro adjust issues associated with a DSLR ) bottom line for me is that so far, after using different bodies and really digging into the benefits for conditions that I frequently shoot in......NOTHING...... on the market touches the 1Dx2 or Nikons D5 ( which i have used ).

For just fat out getting it done , for day to day work ,for a professional photographers needs, Im sticking with my 1Dx2. I rarely shoot at 25000 ISO. But I am at 6400-12800 ISO almost every wedding I capture and the files are remarkably clean and noise is negligible in darks and shadows. The AF performance for dark events like wedding receptions is exceptional. The mirrorless technology is just not on par yet. probably the exception would be Sonys A9 with Native glass

Keep using these 1Dx2 bodies. Nothing touches them yet. They are excellent

What a difference this camera makes. I was able to hit focus on almost everyone of over 500 shots of a large group going down the Payette River this summer. Not bad for a landscape guy and wouldn't have happened with my 1DsIII.

The Snohomish County Search and Rescue team recently did a demonstration of their capabilities at Skagit County Airport. It was in conjunction with a small airshow being presented by Heritage Flight Museum. The detail and precision with which the team worked was awesome. If I ever need a mountain rescue, I'd like these folks to come and get me!

The team arriving:

Most of the crew. The search and rescue team totals about 30 members. Only a couple of those members are paid positions. All the others are volunteers. The woman is the pilot.

The "victim" has been stabilized and is ready to be hoisted aboard.

The rescue is nearly complete.

Image editing ok; C&C always welcome.

Usual race set up - 70-200 2.8 mkII with the 1.4 mkIII ext

Before you all say WTF. . . . . this was a 1953 concept - Cadillac race car, built by hand (one off) from original drawings - guy raced it in a one hour race and believe me - he REALLY had to work it.
