Canon EOS 1D X

1dx-thmb
Review Date: Dec 29, 2012 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: build quality,lcd screen resolution,better to hold (grip) then earlier 1d mk3 which i was used too,a1 servo tracking outstanding,high iso low noise!!!! outstanding
Cons:
only one high price, but i guess you get what you pay for

Having come from a 1d mk3 & 5d mk2 which i still have. I find this camera outstanding to use all the shortfalls of the 1d mk3 have been fixed in this super camera, were do i start a1 servo and tracking moving subjects is in a different league,with the mk3 tracking was hit and miss but with this one about 99% plus are spot on. The screen resolution is even better then the 5d mk2 which makes it easy to review pics even in sunlight,focusing is so much faster i can,t believe it even in low light,high iso noise is so much better i have no problem using up to 8000 with perfect results

In summary buy it for just for perfect low noise performace and tracking subjects and last of all that beautiful 3.2 inch lcd screen wow

Pros: Image qualiity is the best i have ever seen,Super fast focus with my 1d mk3 Just love this lens !!! super sharp!!! super sharp!!!
Cons:
Heavy,Weight, Must use monopod to get best results

This is the lens i never thought i would own

I can use this lens at 2.8 all day sharpness is spot on

Recent trip to Japan in October 2011 picked up this secondhand one in perfect condition

Having read the reviews over ths last couple of years i now what this lens like
Portrait shooting is the best because you have a good distance from the subject get a more natural expressions
Bokeh is is excellent , I have 50mm 1.2 & 70-200 2.8IS it is on par wit these lens

using 1.4x focus is just as fast

using 2.0x you do notice slow down in focus but still very usable

build quality is solid as a rock

You need the IS if you want to hand hold it

If you get the chance to buy one do it!!!!!
