    Starting from the 7D (or so), Canon has gathered the button configurations into one menu page, to make things easier. No more weird combinations of setting functions to more than one button at the...

    The technical reason for the lenses being white is that the fluorite lenses inside are sensitive to heat. A bright color keeps the lens cooler.

    The higher end models have an LCD on top, which together with the viewfinder information provides much the same functionality.

    You know you must first put the extender on the lens, then the whole combination on the camera, to make it work correctly?

    A noise free camera will never happen. Stochastic processes will guarantee that.
    However, what many fail to realize is that noise-free human spectators already exist. Just give them an interesting...

    Well, let me spell this out for you, then:
    If the camera assumes you can take 12 photos, then it will show that. Then you take one photo. Based on how fast your memory card can store that photo,...

    Which is exactly what happens already, if you use P mode with locked exposure. So the functionality is almost there already in the camera, just not combined with a completely manual mode.

    If you shoot in artificial light, the flicker mode on the 1DX Mark II may be worth an upgrade from 1DX.
    Better viewfinder information and improved focus system in the 1DX Mark II is nice too.
    But...

    The number of shots you can take, that's shown in the viewfinder, is an estimation/approximation of what the camera expects to happen. It's not magic truth.

    I bought the new EF 24-105 mm f/4L IS II USM, but mainly because my ten year old EF 24-105 mm f/4L IS USM is broken. Now when there's a new model around, I thought I could just as well upgrade as...

    Several unclear items in this thread.
    It's not advisable to use the term "1Dx" as a referece to various 1D models, like the 1D, the 1D Mark IIn etc, since there's also a mode actually named 1DX....

    That may very well be countered by it being a special model on that market, where the WG version is the standard issue.

    When using Live view, the camera does use a first curtain electronic shutter, since the sensor is already exposed to light when you press the button to take the picture. But then the mechanical...

    The cases are just presets with the different parameters. Set the parameters the same, and you have two cases doing the same thing.

    Do yourself a favor and stay away from the EF 75-300 mm f/4-5.6 III. Of all lenses in Canon's current line-up, it competes well to win the title of the lemon of them all.
    To get something similar,...

    You have both on the same table, grab the camera and start mounting the lens. The 7D has a WFT-E5B mounted, so it's not too different in size, and mounting lenses is something I've done so many times...

    Don't try to mount EF-S lenses

    By a stupid mistake, I thought I was holding a 7D and attempted to put the EF-S 17-55 mm f/2.8 IS USM on the camera. But it was the 1DX I had in my hand. The EF-S lens doesn't fit, of course, but the...

    On the EF 16-35 mm f/2.8L II USM the closest distance is 0.28 m. If you want to compare.
    In case you really want to distort, then I recommend the EF 8-15 mm f/4L fisheye USM. The closest range is...

    No, it isn't. That's a legacy thing. When the first camera with custom modes was introduced (the 40D in 2007), there was no quick control screen. Thus there was no other way to select an exposure...

    The capbilities of the 1DX prohibits using a dial. Since you can reload a configuration from the memory card, it must be possible to change the mode without physically rotating a dial.

    Considering that both memory cards are attached to the same Digic processor, I'm not so sure that alternating between them will solve or even improve the situation.
    But I don't know.
