Great thread Lars!
I don't have the 1DX, but I've always used AF confirm on my TS-E and ZE lenses (I don't use chipped on Alt adapters) when not using LV. I have close to perfect success using the center AF point with 5D2, 1D3, and 1Ds3, MFA as needed with moderate apertures. I shoot a lot of stuff with TS-E hand held, and sometimes at night, where focus confirm is best/fastest way to go.
I use all normal screens and focus confirm off the 1/2 shutter button.
I'm sure you are touting using multiple AF points, but just wanted to support using AF confirm with appropriate manual lenses. Some manual focus users seem averse to using focus confirm -- I've never understood that. I would have loved that feature in old film camera.
To other poster: RF? Seriously? Ha-ha! How many camera systems do you carry around all day? As others have said, RF is completely inappropriate for TS-E and macro applications, two of my favorite types of lenses.
