A little OT, but since we're all discussing 1DX firmware.... did anyone notice degradation of AI-Servo tracking consistency with the update to 1.06 from the previous version (1.02, I think)? I updated to it a few weeks ago and have had a notable number of sports action sequences where the AF totally lost the subject mid sequence, which was much less of an occurrence at pre-update events...
I seem to have noticed a bit of a performance drop on very fast targets.....just today my 1DX felt like 1DMkIIN....however, I made a mental note of it, but I haven't done enough shooting today to be able to form any more definitive conclusion. However, something does feel fishy.
More testing tomorrow.
That is a problem with updating a product on a piecemeal basis after the design had been done......a firmware update may fix one thing and inadvertently cause problems elsewhere.
Thanks Peter. I'll be interested in your thoughts on this, and maybe it will be worth starting a separate thread.
The only reason I updated was because I like the feature that remembers separate AF point selections for horizontal and vertical shots... but turning on this feature caused it to often forget MFA settings (though figured out if the camera was set to never sleep, it at least wouldn't lose the MFA during a session), which 1.06 fixed...
