    I mean I get why someone might like the 100-500mm. But wow, $2800?!

    So I looked at the 100-400mm II, it's still $2400!

    Wow, I'm out of touch with what some of these cost. I remember when the...

    Comparing 25k ISO to 12k ISO of the R6. The R3 is holding it's own with it resolving the numbers even slightly better. Probably due to the extra resolution.

    It's even bigger than that, if you shoot live view. You can get 20fps mechanical. If you are shooting on a tripod or mono pod. This is quite doable. If hand held you can just use it hand held, which...

    Excellent post Busted Knuckles!

    I would add, that this is a relevant place for the 1Dx III to shine.

    Think about it, you get 20fps mechanical vs 12. Now is that unusable? No. But having used...

    I would think sports or action shooters are the primary ones who would have a legit use for that level of speed. And of course your shooting style.

    Not exactly. A golf swing is over a hundred miles per hour. Thats really fast! And this can many times be over a fairly broad area of the sensor. So you are really maximizing any rolling shutter...
