elrey2375, I am not really sure what you are looking for, there are plenty of really fantastic images out there, not just in this thread, and remember in this thread you are looking at images taken by in my case just an average photographer, I have not shot fast moving objects in a while, so you have to remember it can be the user not the camera.

I think this review shows some pretty impressive images.

I know one thing for sure anyone who had a Canon 1DX will not be disappointed as an overall body, if they they think it is worth to them it is another matter :(

As freewheeling as I can be with money, I still like to think I get good value out of a purchase. I guess I'm still debating the value of purchasing the X. I'm stuck on things that are hard to quanify, but beg for quantification. Do I see roughly $3K more performance than a MKIV? Very questionable. I understand that people in this thread won't badmouth their new purchase, if for no other reason than they don't want to admit their purchase was not all they dreamed it would be. And that's totally understandable, I would do the same thing. I guess I just don't see anything yet that illustrates $3K worth of value over a MKIV.

So, basically, it's a tease. You can now supposedly 'get' the shot easier, but the resulting shot won't be any different than before...

I would say that's a valid statement at the lower end of the Iso range

..... Help me understand; why do I want this shot then?

I guess you're the only person who knows whether your current equipment will perform in the conditions you need it to. I think that there are a few landscape togs who aren't thrilled at losing 4Mp and there are some birders (me included) who are a little disappointed at not being able to AF with a 500/4 or 600/4 and 2x combination.....not to mention any potential loss due to the "crop factor effect". Certainly I'll keep a 1DMkIV as it can do something that the 1Dx can't.

If you trawl back a few pages in this thread then you'll see that I aired an opinion that the 1DsMkIII had the edge in the Iso 100-400 range when comparing the basic output....it's an opinion and nothing more. All I can say is that I got a 1Dx, used it for a couple of weeks and then ordered a second one. Being realistic, I need to get rid of two of the older bodies. I want to retain a 1DMkIV for the crop factor and AF at f/8 and I want to keep the 1DsMkIII simply because I like its rendering at the lower end of the Iso range.

As for, me if I was not happy about something I would say, just because I bought a 1D X, I will not say it is flawless if it is not, it is very hard to ascertain how good an image is from a 1024 image, as you commented regarding my images being flat compared to other bodies, unless you actually shot both bodies in the same conditions it is very hard to compare, it was very cloudy and over cast at times, if it was sunny and bright they would pop a lot more same as any body.

I myself are not really into spending hours to make an image to a lot better, I am sure if someone played with my raw images they could make it a lot better than I have just tweaking the shadows.

My 100-400L is abused and I just whack it on the body no setting it up, again I am sure if it was properly set up for wide and tele micro AF as you can on this body it would make a slight difference. there are so many variables to make an image better for all bodies, me personally I am happy. heh, As i said the images taken are really only as good as the image taker and processor, I am no expert, put this body in an experts hands and and I know you would be happy too :).

This shot not that sharp and flat as well, hence Sky, and shot handheld with 100-400 at 1/40th.

Battery question.... i noticed that the 1ds3 and 1DX use the same style of battery but different outputs and model numbers. Is it safe to swap the batteries around or should I just buy more 1dx batteries?

You got a heck of a deal on the "never miss focus" Mk4 .... I'd stop checking this thread if I was you.

Many people feel 3k is justifiable to have a more consistent AF system. So the photos look the same, what's more valuable one looking the same that was in focus or one that isn't. Look at those who switched to Nikon over the 1diii fiasco, there wasn't a huge difference in image quality between the systems but there was a difference between the images being in focus or not when they needed it to be.

People always seem to want to pixel pinch and instead ignore the bigger picture behind that image.

Personally the AF and iso performance have made me a very happy boy adding in also the fact that now lenses like my fisheye are actually that on the FF sensor.

There genuinely seems to be alot of happy people with dx's nothing about buyers remorse or people trying to put words into their mouths because it challenges their own opinion.
