ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME?!!!!

So I simply wanted to set the diopter before I mounted the eyepiece,. so I grabbed a small light fast lens so i could see,.
EF 50mm f/1.8 STM was right on the shelf so on it goes.

Duh, no manual focus!
So in goes my LP-E4n already charged,. , AF ON, .. and WTF!?

Now I never even thought to put the 50mm STM on the 1Dx2 in the brief time I had it, but it's been on my 7D2, 5D4, 1D4 and most recently the EOS R many times.


On the 1DXIII it is focusing at least twice as fast as I am used to!

Nothing that I understand about the Canon AF can explain that! ( unless I am just giddy drunk with this new 1D! )

Yeah, FedEx dropped some junque off at my place as well...

And, of course, the first task was to snap the old kit...

I am sad to report that my 1DX II Promedia gear bracket does not fit.
It's particularly tragic because the removable "l" part still line up perfectly,. it's just that Canon changed the shape of the bottom/base of the 1Dx, with a more drastic curve, and more flat area.

I might be able to tweek it with some careful sanding/grinding to get it to fit, but it doesn't look like an easy task.

The 1D just has the power, Canon do claim the 1D series has more power to drive AF than any other body, when I had my 50L and 85L it was the same, twice the speed of my 5D4 in regard to AF drive speed. I have a video somewhere of the EF 85L 1.2 racing against both bodies, the 1DX2 used to be twice as quick from end to end. On a side note I guess the better/more efficient the AF drive motor/system etc the less you may see an advantage, I've never tested any other lenses.

I've found this too, 1 series bodies drive the heavier lenses faster and more accurately. The 85mm f1.2 and the Sigma 105mm f1.4 work better on the 1DxIII than on the 5DmkIV. I'd gotten so fed up with AF hunting when using the 105mm on the 5DmkIV I had the lens permanently on MF.

So I doubt that the Kirk 'L' bracket I have somewhere from when I owned the original 1Dx will fit the 1DxIII. Shame, just have to buy a new one.

I have been thru this with the Pro Media Gear (PMG) base-plates before.
When the 1DX Mk II came out, PMG thought that their plates for the 1DX would fit, and that is what they sold and recommended.
Well, they did not fit and a less than perfect plate, especially one that is too narrow, will bulge-up the rubber on the camera base.
I showed this to them once, at a trade show.

I would like to offer the suggestion to NOT modify your existing plate and just wait for PMG to engineer-up a new plate.
My sense is that it will take them under 4 months.
I love their plates, with the tabs that prevent twisting on the camera body, and the fact that you can add their truly ingenious Boomerang flash bracket to them.
I have also found the PMG plates are an exact fit for RRS lever-clamp-equipped ARCA mounts.

I have and use a PMG 'generic' plate for this transitional time, or for cameras that I may have brief exposure to, or even to mount a flash to it and use in a tripod.
(PBX3 Universal Bracket Plate)

If you grind thru the anodizing on the PMG plate to widen it and make it fit your new camera, bare aluminum will make (most-likely) non-removable rub marks on the camera's floor plate.

Such awesome cameras deserve professionally-fitting plates. They will make them available!

Enjoy the new toy who already received it.

I’m still thinking whether to buy it next month or a few months later...

Not speaking for Jake but the RRS L Bracket does not fit either, the base of the camera is larger so I will assume not of the brackets will fit like they should. If the Arca Swiss plate does not wrap the base then it should fit.
