The sensor was dirty when it arrived

Summary: The images were drop dead gorgeous the first few days after it arrived. However, in less than a month, I noticed ugly spots all over my images. I thought it might be the fault of the lens and spent a lot of time cleaning my lenses. Nevertheless, the spots would not go away.
Summary: I was so darn excited to get this camera! In fact, I still want to love it because it handles like no other on the market, but after about 3 months of using it, i ran into a very serious problem.
Summary: I also own a Nikon D3 for comparison. The Canon's auto-focus and low light performance are noticeably improved over the Nikon.
Pros: Fast, precise auto-focus, outstanding low light performance, solid construction, dual CF card slots, unique situational focus modes, dual processors with one processor dedicated to focusing. Canon has an $800.00 rebate good until 03JAN2015 on the US spec 1DX.
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.
Great camera. The only downside Is the shutter noise

Summary: Great camera. The only downside Is the shutter noise. Canon really need to fix this issue. My 5d mkIII a is not as loud as this monster. Don't get me wrong I love it. I just wish it was a bit on the quieter side.
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.
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.
