    Looks like an amazing camera.

    I already owned the 1DX III, bought it brand new for $6500 plus tax. But ended up returning it.

    Ultimately it was the most amazing camera I ever used. But with the...

    100%

    I do find it interesting the thought of a 1200mm f/8. Definitely would fit my style of shooting.

    Obviously I always dream of an opportunity to own even the old 1200mm f/5.6. It is a beyond...

    My main curiosity is when then they will release them.

    I have my doubts about the 1200mm f/8 if there is no patents. But I wouldn't nessarily be surprised if they did release a lens like that...
  4. Call me nostalgic, but I have always wanted to...

    Call me nostalgic, but I have always wanted to shoot the 600mm f/4 IS and own it for a little bit. It was one of those lenses I only dreamed of owning for well over a decade. And even shooting it on...

    Indeed, that pretty much was my opinion. That the 600 II and 1.4x is not bad. I think the 1200 and 1120 comparison is still not too bad. I'd give the nod to the 800 1.4 combo at that point but still...

    I'm referring to wide open IQ especially at the 1200mm'ish range. There the 600mm III has a definite disadvantage.

    As with Bryans awesome review, I rarely ever stop down with a super telephoto...

    For me, I think the IQ is not as good if you are comparing it to the 800mm, and the 800+1.4. Or even the II with extenders. It would nessarily be a deal breaker, but I feel like at $13,000 plus tax....

    On the subject of big white image quality, I am surprised on two counts. The 800mm f/5.6 holds its own compared to the 600mm f/4 II and the 600mm f/4 III. And the mark III's IQ is not really an...
  9. For sure, and while I would be totally stoked to...

    For sure, and while I would be totally stoked to use even the orginal 600mm f/4 IS my ultimate lens is still the 800. For me I have made good use of even 1200mm on a 1.6 crop body with my 600. So it...

    I still have my Minolta 600mm which I will probably never sell. I'll never stop birding, but I can't justify spending huge dollars unless I make money with it.

    That is not to say if/when I have a...

    Used it once and now I for sure want it. I am starting to shoot and make money on the side. So now whatever I make with photography I will reinvest into it again. Not like it was exactly cheap the...
  12. NOOOO!!!! The 200mm f/2.0 is discontinued!!!!!

    This is a sad day for me, as I have been saving up for this lens and now it is discontinued!!!! First Adorama had it out of stock and now B&H. I went to Canon USA and it said the 200mm f/2.0 is...

    I guess my bigger deal is not that DPAF didn't focus in ridiculously low light. Or if it is even ussuable for different applications. As a whole DPAF didn't live up to PDAF. And in my view with all...

    Indeed, and it is possible I did something wrong or there are some setting I could have done differently.

    But as you said these are incredibly extreme examples and hardly can be considered poor...

    I will be getting my hands on the 1DX III soon again along with the 50mm f/1.2, 24-105mm II, 5D IV and 600RT III flash.

    So I will be able to do a more in depth comparisons.

    I have not had an issue with focusing on the stars. I would assume because of the contrast. Even my 1D III or T2i can do that.

    I will post a pic of what I was having a hard time. But it was taking...

    Perhaps, but I tested this with the 50mm f/1.2 and the Canon 24-105mm f/4. In every lens the PDAF outperform the DPAF significantly in low light. In bright light it was fine, but even with indoor...

    Yes, my experience was with a rented 1DX III only and I didn't have the pleasure of comparing them side by side with the R5.

    DPAF was fine with good lighting but it never did live up to the PDAF...

    1DX III vs R5 AF

    This really could also be titled phase detect AF vs dual pixel AF.

    So one of the things that surprised the socks off of me was that normal AF was far superior to dual pixel in even moderate low...

    All good points, I don't think there is nessarily a wrong answer given so far. If they do make an RF replacement for the 1DX III very soon than I can see them not making a successor. But even then,...

    1DX III last of a dying breed?

    So I had the glorious opportunity to rent the 1DX III. But it got me thinking, do you guys think it will be the last of the 1-series? My hypothesis is it may get one more refresh before being...

    I'm sure in RAW, and a few tweaks with the HLS function, levels and curves on a individual color basis. You could bring out more of the blue that he was pointing out. What I am seeing is just the...

    Yeah, I realize that CR doesn't know anything really past what Canon is willing release either through an interview, press release ect.

    But one can hope.:D
