    Canon EOS-1 D X Mark III

    A brave evolution from Canon! If I would be in DSLR photography again, this camera would be it. Just a technical marvel!

    This video makes me really want to get one with some lenses and go back to Africa and Safari again.

    Enjoy

    Great looking camera that I canít help but thinking that it shouldíve been in RF mount. It would literally solve most of the shortcomings and still be compatible with EF through native adapters.

    I tend to agree, but for sports shooters, the form factor and lens mount is fine. I suppose there will be an RX with similar specs later.

    I really hope for this RX camera to materialise sooner than later, although it will be probably too expensive for me and the shootings I would use it for .

    I hear you but at some point they gotta cut the cord. Nothing wrong with the 1DxII IMO. If this were in RF mount it would justify the excellent lenses theyíve produced so far. I just donít think the existing bodies excite most people that were looking for Canon to make a big splash. It is probably the most disappointed Mirrorless FF body to me. Part of that is because I had higher hopes/expectations for what theyíd produce and the other part is because I find it to be the absolute least comfortable of all FF Mirrorless cameras to hold in the hand.

    Maybe the R is made for Asians. They have smaller hands. I know a couple of R users, both Asians, and they are very happy with the camera.

    I donít know about that... I think people just find different ergonomics acceptable. I know of many Americans that like the EOS R ergos... Iím just not one of them but itís 100% because of the grip for me. Itís straight walled without any indentation. Itís the reason I donít care for it.
