1dx +manual focus ? seriously ? If I want manual focus, I would rather shoot rangefinder.
Know what you mean. That thought bugged me for a few days until I realized that the new AF was incredibly accurate letting me focus confirm focus even on BIF successfully. LW on BIF was no success
Furthermore I donīt _want_ manual focus, I want Zeiss IQ. As every lens I use except the 400TAT is MF, the accurate focus confirm is a huge step forward.
I would love RF for the size, but I suspect that the 1DX just might be slightly more durable than the Leica M9.
I shoot with 5dmkiii and Leica M6. Whenever I want to shoot manually, I go with rangefinder system because it is made for shooting manually.
I now have some Zeiss ZM glasses 21, 35, 50 and they are as good as ZE glasses I owned before. The Zeiss microcontrast signature is still there at much more manageable size. I had a huge ergonomic issue with shooting manually with Zeiss glasses on a big Canon DSLR before. It is just awkward to shoot on a fly and people are just appalled when you point the thing at them.
The whole thing is just huge and that is with 5dmk ii. I can't imagine how can I go on shooting street with the beastly 1dX and Zeiss 21 Distagon.
Honestly since 1Dx is not exactly a bargain camera here so finance is probably not a constraint to move to a M system. I bet some of you here will eventually realize that and make a move. 1DX is a great camera but it is not born for manual shooting.
