Yes the 1DX is a rather big camera. But using the 1DX for AF and a rangefinder for MF would make it even more heavy and big. And I don't like to move to a M system. Do you like to move to the 1DX ?
I started a thread about how the MF with the 1DX and Zeiss lenses has improved.
And every post you make is that we should stop using the 1DX camera because you like rangefinder cameras !!!!
Interesting. Actually, this is how I shoot now. 1DX with 70-200 and longer lenses for the benefit of AF/IS. M9 with 12-90mm lenses for benefit of outstanding w/a & normal performance in a very small package where MF is not a deficit compared to AF. In fact, until the 1DX's improved AF precision, I'd say my MF M9 results were more consistent than w/a AF. It's one reason I went with a rangefinder, because it's extremely easy to focus w/a lenses quickly and accurately by eye. I was considering adding a few ZE lenses to my kit, but the thought of the size and weight, in addition to my existing set of L primes and zooms, really turned me off. But this is me, which I accept is not what others will want. FWIW, I will often go out with both systems for the benefits each offers. The size/weight of the M9 & 3 or 4 lenses is less than bringing another 1D body and lens. To me at least, this combo makes a lot of sense.
