    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.

    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.

    Re: Canon EOS-1 D X Mark III

    Having owned the original 1Dx (which I sold to help fund MF gear) I found there was a lot to like about the 1 series. I didn't feel that the mk ii was enough of an improvement for me to justify the outlay when that was introduced so, for the past 3 years, I've used the 5Dmkiv. The mk iii however looks like its got a lot to offer especially in AF improvements. I was a bit put off by the high list price in the UK when it was formally announced but, when you take into account the two Sandisk 64GB CF express cards plus reader which are bundled with it (I'd otherwise have to buy those for around £425) plus £500 p/ex bonus from Canon, that brings the price down to a more reasonable level, actually around £500 more than what the mk ii was being advertised at until recently. So I've pre ordered one, should get it around mid February.
