I never shot with 1D series. I would really like to get my hands on some models (1Ds II, 1D II/N, 1D III) just for a few test shots to see the difference between crappy AF (5Dc/5DII) system and normal AF system.
I pretty much use 99.9 % user center spot on my 5D II & recompose ,and one shot AF.Rarely or almost never AI SERVO.
I don't use outer points or AI servo not because I shoot dead/static stuff,just because I can't nail the shots as I'd like to..
I'm curious as how AI servo works on 1DII/1Ds II/ 1D III, not just by reading forums & stuff because on the web everybody's opinion is based on their own feel/perception/judgement..
So what works for some may be useless for me.
I also believe that putting AF aside, the 1DX is a winner (IQ/speed/features etc).
Only concern is the AF which they will either NAIL it, or....hopefully not mess it up and put an AF inferior to the one in the other 1D series..
After all, judging by all the other specs, the 1DX should really have some serious AF because even though it's a 'one man show' /"do it all" camera, it's not a landscape/fashion/etc body (such as the 5D II),to be able to come with an excuse for a crappy AF system.
I mean, I dig it, the 5D are slow because they were never meant to be cameras that you can jump into action,bullets flying by & etc... but the 1DX should be able to cope with that (AF wise).
