Pros: ISO, Speed, AF

Cons: Oil spatters on CMOS !!!!

Opinion: The 1DX MK II is a great upgrade to the old 1dx, the raws files are a lot cleaner, the AF-Trackingspeed form the AI-Servo III shows a great improvement to the older one...My only problem with this camera are the oil spatters on the sensor, it is not normal that the entirely sensor is dirty after only 1000 shots with a such type of camera, i hope Canon will fix this problem in the near future !

Pros: Image quality, autofocus, shutter speed, buffer, viewfinder, ergonomics, extensive customization possibilities

Cons: the Canon log is missing, there is no af-servo mode in live-view for photos, for videos in 4k only the option to record in mjpeg is available

Opinion: It is the model that replaced the 1dx and, although on paper some specifications are similar, the machine has been redesigned in its main components. On the autofocus side there has been an improvement in many respects: speed, focus point available (with certain combinations of optics and extenders it is possible to have all the af points active even if the maximum aperture is between f6.3 and f8), operation in low light conditions. In general, the autofocus is more responsive and reliable than that of the 1dx. In terms of image quality, between 18 and 20 megapixels does not change much, but they have greatly improved the dynamic range at iso-based sensitivity. At the higher ones, however, practically nothing changes compared to the old model, in terms of snr and dynamic range (at least if you shoot in raw, since in jpeg the noise reduction implemented by the camera counts a lot). There has been a considerable improvement in terms of buffer: even shooting in raw on both cards, you can exceed 100 shots (obviously depending on the iso sensitivity, scene photographed, shutter speed etc.) continuous. The shutter speed goes from 12 to 14fps, with active autofocus, and you reach 16fps in live view. Unfortunately, in the latter case the af-servo mode is missing, for photos, so the dual pixel cmos can only be used for static subjects. According to the designers, the choice is due to the fact that they had not judged the performance of the dual pixel cmos sufficient (it is a 2016 machine), for an eos 1, so they preferred not to implement this mode. A note: comparisons between the 1dx mark II and the r6 often appear on the forum, and some users claim that the latter exceeds the former "in all". This is absolutely not the case: focus speed with supertelephoto lenses and extenders, shutter speed with the mechanical shutter (and with flashes), shutter lag, configuration options, autonomy, viewfinder without response latencies and with a dynamic range much wider than an evf, are all aspects in which the 1dx mark II outclasses the r6 (not to mention ergonomics, of LCD screens and additional buttons etc.). On the video side, compared to the 1dx there has been an abysmal leap: first of all there is the dual pixel cmos, which allows you to have continuous focus, and also the machine can record video in 4k up to 60fps. There are, however, some limitations. In 4k the machine records only in mjpeg, with a high bitrate: this involves a considerable occupation of space: I suspect that the problem is hardware, in the sense that probably the digic processors would not have been able to handle the h264 compression, in 4k. In 4k, moreover, the machine does not record with the entire width of the sensor, but uses a 4k "portion" of the sensor: even here, I believe that it is a hardware limit, due to the processors and the reading speed of the sensor (which affects the rolling shutter). Finally, while on the 5d mark IV they added the ability to install (for a fee) the Canon log, nothing was done for the 1dx mark II. I had the opportunity to ask canon USA for clarification and, apparently, the problem is not hardware, but they simply have not received many requests for the addition of this function, on the 1dx mark II: unfortunately, Canon marketing still strikes ...

Pros: Autofocus speed, dynamic range, burst, screen

Cons: Weight, price

Opinion: I've owned it for three years now. Machine suitable for everything, autofocus speed at the top, a bit bulky and heavy but when you have in your hand a 300mm or a 500mm it's convenient to have a big body in your hand. The screen then in my opinion is a span above the 5D or 6D series. I find it useless, at least for me, the gps to which I would have clearly preferred wifi.

Pros: It's a 1D series. Everything has been designed and designed for absolute perfection!

Cons: I haven't found any yet.

Opinion: Having used the 1DX since 2013, today with the updated version, I am faced with a body that is completely familiar to me and fits perfectly with my type of work. Everything looks the same, but in reality the improvements are remarkable. I'm not going to sit here and list them all. I'm just saying that CANON technicians and engineers have done an outstanding job listening to hundreds of professionals around the world and adapting this efficiency monster to every single photographer who can take advantage of it. I read that someone complains about the weight or the video features; I don't agree with them at all. This is a machine designed for people who want it that way! Weight is a positive and essential feature because every milligram of this device has a very important purpose and mission. Anyone who uses it for the purpose it is intended for, would never work with something tiny and impalpable, much less complain about video features just below the best competition (as long as it is, I don't use it for videos). For the video industry, there are specially designed devices that fall into your hand better than a DSLR does. This tank packed with the best technology in existence was born and designed to be an immortal machine gun and that never jams! The rest are speeches from photo clubs frequented by kids all chatter and badge (cit.)

Pros: Series 1, reactivity AF, AF to f/8 on all points, RED AF POINT, IQ, high ISO hold, top tropicalization, commands, 4K to 60fps, FullHD at 120fps, GPS, size and weight, etc. etc.

Cons: I would have preferred a double Cfast 2.0 slot

Opinion: Of the series 1 I had the 1D Mark III and then the 1DX (both fabulous), and now waiting for the release of the 1DX Mark III, I wanted to take this 1DX II... Na beast! I had to think again that it was a slight upgrade of the 1DX, the changes are there, among many things it is much more responsive, the AF of the latest generation and finally the point of RED AF (configurable in two lighting intensity), in Under the 5D Mark III and 5D Mark IV, I was having to try to figure out where the AF's point was, no more. The files are much more workable, and allow greater recoveries of the shadow areas. The HIGH ISO estate is superior to the fantastic 5D Mark IV. The 20mp are for my needs more than enough, I do not make exaggerated crop, I always prefer to compose the frame well according to my needs, then if you need a few megapixels more use the 5D Mark IV. The only flaw in my opinion, is the use of two CF and Cfast 2.0 formats, I would have preferred to have both slots with Cfast 2.0 (-5) Conclusion, I was very pleased with this 1DX Mark II (9.5)
