First day out with the new camera and I'm going to like this one! Sitting still couldn't ask for a sharper focus even with an old 100-400 and with some more practice I should be able to figure out the in flight options to make the most of what I think will be a great camera.

Well, no sports just now so need to keep the muscles in condition (ie I carry the 1DX2 with 100-400 up the hills to stay fit).

Much to my surprise I met this lovely couple and added them to the "People I Meet" project.

Great clarity on these shots, and in a gorgeous setting. Keep up the good work, and exercise regimen :)

I like the top picture with the three yachts. :-)

Was the naval ship involved?

No, the naval ship was not involved but was on exercises in the area.

I have the wireless transmitter it is awesome. It has lots of uses and features!

MatthewK wrote in post #18752029 (external link)
I’m weak...

With the evolution to mirrorless and the inevitable retirement of the DSLR, the smart move would be to pass on this 1DX2. But, with gear, I’ve always been someone who uses what’s there now, versus waiting for the next best thing. Someday, sure, I’ll go mirrorless, but in this moment I’m going to thoroughly enjoy this cream of the crop 1 series body, and keep shooting what I love.

My other hesitation is: what will the 1DX2 bring to the table that my 5D4 doesn’t provide? It delivers the shots I want, no complaints, this 1 may be overkill! Probably, but I have a suspicion that it’ll deliver that last bit of performance and feature set that I didn’t know I was missing.

One thing I’m going to have to get used to is that the 1DX2 is my only DSLR without a touchscreen or wireless. Already fingerprinted up the new screen with a failed swipe haha

Kim, the 5D4 is marvelous! It’s been a stout, dependable companion, and I’m definitely keeping it until it crumbles into magnesium and plastic dust.

Get the newest WFT - E8

apersson850 wrote in post #18752224 (external link)
Now you'll not misplace the battery grip any longer.

There's a touch screen on the 1DX Mark II, but Canon has, in their incomprehensible wisdom, crippled the functionality of it to mainly allow for handling focusing in live view and video modes.
You can add the WFT-E6x or WFT-E8x to the 1DX Mark II, in order to get WiFi. It already has Gigabit Ethernet via cable built in.
