    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.

    This reminds me when I was much bigger into 3D imagery. This is a really amazing lens. Something to think about when switching to RF is incredibly unique lenses like these.

    For sure, that is one of the things that impressed me with the 1Dx III was it's already very good IQ.

    I fully expect the 3R to do better than the 1Dx III by a significant margin.

    Well, if you are used to a 400mm f/5.6. Even a 600mm f/6.3 from Sigma or Tamron is gonna make your 400 feel inadequate in comparison, especially with extenders. It's just a whole another league of...
