Thank you Fred for sharing the site. This kind of review that make you decide to buy when you are hesitant, and from experience I find his reviews to be accurate and useful. still waiting for Peter's review since he doesnt seem impressed with the camera
Mohamed, please do not wait for my review because that will be a while.
I will say that 1DX has some good improvements over 1DMkIIN and 1DsMkII, the two cameras I am somewhat familiar with. Am I impressed with 1DX ? No, I am not $7k impressed.
However, I am not an impressionable type to start with.
I also think instead of getting 1DX, a typical photographer could invest $7k into things that would give a much higher return photographically, such as ,,,,,
* 500 f/4 MkI lens if you shoot wildlife.
* 400 f/2.8 IS MkI lens if you shoot sports or wildlife
* 5DMkIII + 300 f/2.8 IS MkI
However, if someone has it all already, then what the heck, might as well get the "latest and gratest" too. 1DX makes a good conversation piece and they all like to listen to 12 FPS rate clicking away.
Peter thanks for the quick review. I cant deny the gear addiction part, however things I miss moving from 1DIV to 5D3 is the huge buffer to play with, I missed some peak action in more than occasion. extra FPS would help too. Also what is encouraging too is many including this review mention that the AF speed is the best, some also mentioned improve speed with extension + a lens like 500f4 . that combo which I use the most.
and of course the most important thing is 12 FPS sound
btw I can't agree more that getting a lens is an investment, taking your advise to buy 500f4IS long time ago and now it increased in price significantly. cant say that about any camera.
