Good find! Too bad about Silent-Continuous, or rather, the lack thereof.

Hrm. No f/8 AF.

"With lenses whose maximum aperture is smaller than f/5.6, AF is not possible during viewfinder shooting. Also, AF with f is not possible during Live View shooting and movie shooting."

Reduced support for interchangeable focussing screens. There's a new one because the AF area is different.

Page 327f:

- you can put the Ec-S in, but it won't meter correctly.
- the older screens, in particular the Ec-D and Ec-S, have not been updated with new versions suitable for the AF area. In case you thought the Ec-D was now redundant, there is a viewfinder grid but you have to dedicate a button to activating it and then hold the button down.

How hard could it be to supply Ec-D II and Ec-S II screens?

Hmmm, AF point display and VF display illumination options seems to be exactly the same as the 5D Mark III, see page 100+101. Can anybody confirm this?

Only new option is the AF Status in Viewfinder option that allows a more obtrusive notification when AF is achieved. This may help some with that have the complaints about the VF in the 5D3 but all the options about when and how the AF points display are the same. So no changes to pre flashing the AF point or to having the point show at all in AI Servo mode.

Thanks for checking. I have only used a pre-production EOS-1D X ever so briefly, so I'm looking forward to see whether this will be an issue for me. Maybe not, as I'm used to the 7D.

I was also used to the 7D since 2010 and never noticed a problem at all when I got the 5D3. Then of course I read about it on these forums from the people with big issues (pompo and Klassey) and looked into it more. For what I do, I don't have any issues and if you haven't had issues with the 7D then you won't all of a sudden have issues with the 1DX or 5D3. Actually there are more options on the 2 new bodies over the 7D so you can choose when the focus point lights up with higher precision. Still arguably not perfect and not as good as the 1D4 system but if 7D was okay then you won't have any issues.

Well, now we can probably rule out that the delay had any thing to do with reworking either the AF points display or autofocus with F/8. My hope is still a sensor void of pattern noise and banding in raised the shadows. A slim hope, but

Let's just get the Olympics over so use civilians can get a chance at a 1Dx.

That's exactly how the 1DX worked that I used in April.

They will not rework the whole viewfinder and AF point display system. But they might have figured how to momentarily light up the AF point in AI Servo, as is done on other Canon camera bodies (sans 5D3). Such a last minute change would not necessarily be reflected in the posted user manual.

The lack of momentary illumination in AI Servo is the issue that people complained about originally, but (as happens on the Interwebz), a few persistent people have elevated this to a crusade against the entire transflective LCD viewfinder design (originally introduced on the 7D).

This design seems integral to the whole "Zone AF" system, so there is little chance that Canon will change this, in my view.

Liking my 1D MkIV even more now. Definitely will take a wait and see approach on the 1DX.

I am taking and wait see for either the 1D X2 or praying they come to their senses (sensors) and keep APS-H alive, even in a non 1 series. 7D, 5D III and 1D IV will keep me happy for long time - well at least until 7D II is announced, hopefully with 5D III AF.

Is this conjecture or unofficial fact? (Not being disrespectful about your comment)
