    I avoid shooting weddings, for the most part I find them depressing.

    However here are my thoughts:

    The minimum requirements to be a professional wedding photographer are as follows:

    What is possible, without a doubt and has been done before, is a high resolution sensor in a 1 body with the build quality and superior AF system to go along with it.

    Nope, it is not just you. It is many of us.
    I thought Digital Cameras would have gotten to the point that one body can do it all. The 1Ds IV never came and will we ever see a high MP sensor in a 1...

    My opinion as of right now is one of indifference, it really hasn't set the world on fire.
    Even worse my opinion of the body keeps falling.

    I puzzled on this a few years ago with a static tree.
    The only way I came up with where both the bird and the moon are sharp is to focus stack, overlay two separate images.
    Perhaps the best to hope...

    If you do what Joel suggested I would like to see the "after" results of the 1Dx III uncropped picture.
    Maybe it will give it more kick.

    I agree completely with your comments about DOF and the eye.

    For what is worth I would have done the same thing you did. Pixel peeped and tried to see if I could have cropped.

    Look at the talons and the branch it is sitting on. To Joel's comment front focus might be a little of it.

    The test would be the 500mm with an adapter on the R5 and the 1DX III without.
    You sure it isn't the difference in resolution that you are noticing?

    The spot AF seems like it will be a negative for me. It sounds like you are doing the same thing I am doing, trying to find the balance in the camera for the right settings. Last weekend was the...

    Bird takeoffs are tough. They explode so fast it is hard for the AF to kick in. If those shots were sequential in five frames a whole 1/3 of a second elapsed +/-. That's pretty demanding. Also here...

    The red sky is the big teller in 6. The sky alone sets it apart.
    I think it probably is closer to what you were seeing at that moment.

    So not a competition but as a blind taste test this is my preference:
    1A, 2 (No Preference not comparable), 3A, 4A, 5A, 6B and 7B.

    I assumed that in 1A those were birds and not dirt on your lens.

    I edited and I saved it at its largest file size on Flickr and posted to TDP. TDP downsized it but now it looks better on the TDP side to me.
