Summary: I managed to find a low use used copy. It's not as flashy as the latest and greatest models, but it can help create first rate images. There is more to "megapixels" than a number. It is very easy to make 13" x 19" prints from this camera without additional processing. If the image is good in camera, it will be good in print. Files respond well to the free Canon DPP software.
Summary: I received this camera and a 24-70 mm/F2.8 II lens as birthday gifts a couple weeks ago. The camera looks cool and awesome. Since I had been taking photos with point-and-shoot cameras (my most recent one is Canon G12), this 1DX is a lot complicated for me to handle. I used it a few times on P-mode to take pictures of my dog in the dog park; the pictures look awesome. Nevertheless, I still need to finish reading the instruction manual to learn all the features.
Summary: There was a question about weather this camera is good for beginners or not. There was the comment I did not like. The comment was that you should buy a rable for beginner with automatic settings. I totally disagree. With an automatic camera you will never learn photography. The computer gets in the way of that. My suggestion if you are a beginner and have the money this is perfect for you.
Summary: I have gone from the Canon Rebel and as I've grown as a photographer not only bought newer models but more professional models. Now I shoot with the 1DX and 5DIII. The 1DX is the most fun, fastest and best photo tool that I've ever owned. The other reviews talk about different details, but everything about this camera is better than any other camera that I've ever owned. There are a few advantages to other cameras (the high megapixels of the D800, etc.
Summary: Ever since the introduction of the Canon EOS-1 series camera in 1989, I have made this body my main piece of equipment and have upgraded to almost every new model through the decades. I am not the type who craves the 'latest and greatest' gear but once in a while, a new camera introduction can fill a gap in my equipment lineup. So when the EOS-1D X was announced, it seems to be the camera I am looking for so I placed my order and anxiously waited for the delivery.
Summary: I've had this camera about a week, and so far its everything I expected and more!!. The camera also enhances the new series of Canon lenses like the 300mm f2.8II, the 24-70mm f2.8II, and the 70-200mm f2.8II. The only drawback, if there is one is that it's a full frame sensor, which can work against a sports photographer.
