...Still believing in forum-texting, gossip, word-of-mouth, lack of Test Protocol, etc., any results coming from a harder, more structured, numerical/repeatable approach will be very difficult to ingest.
These results (except for 1D4) echo very closely what FotoMagazin (in Germany) tested more than a YEAR ago, with 40D, 1D3, 1Ds3, D3 and many other cams... (but their test involved a vehicle running at constant speed, approaching the camera. It was highly numerical, easy to quantify, and very repeatable).
In FotoMagazin tests, the 40D fared better, though... and the 1D3 ruled supreme. (the D3 could not keep up with 1D-series, in terms of burst depth, speed and accuracy, after numerous attempts to configure / tune it).
Of course, the above test would need to be re-run with finely tuned configs., again, so we can all see what all these cams can truly deliver. That part is missing, and would need to be considered. For the moment, it is a good start but... a half-way done test.
Cheers, and thanks,
