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: Buy it only if you know what you want

Cons: It must be studied capita does not take beautiful photos if you do not know it

Opinion: And needless to say that nothing is perfect if you want a camera body that takes beautiful photos without doing anything you have wrong body not and for everyone but one of the few bodies that you can do everything who has understood it not the criticism who hated it I will understand and better ride a broccoli or be able to ride a Stallion with the due time complicated fascinating if you want to take beautiful photos without knowing what you do buy a iPhone new , I had the 1dx I made 400 thousand shots with the same shutter only flaw 3 pixels burned

Pros: Uncompromising quality, when you know what you have in your hand then you understand what you can pull out of this jewel.

Cons: Touch screen only for AF selection and not for menu navigation

Opinion: What is the Canon 1dx2? Take a house with decades of history of photography, with a cutting-edge technological baggage, skilled both in the pro world and in the amateur world, put together a team with a single purpose: to create an object of which every single gram has a specific function, an adaptation dictated by experience, all to achieve the most professional result possible in terms of photography, while you are there, put the video compartment next to it and just to put the icing on the cake uses the more than tested ergonomics. Here comes out a camera with a disproportionate photographic compartment, fast to say the least, and I'm not talking about fps or AF (we already know that they are an exceptional thing) but rather I talk about operating speed in all its forms, from when you turn it on to when you turn it off it NEVER has a hesitation, never a moment where you say "it could be better" In the sun, in the dark, rain and mud, with a wide angle or a 600mm, everyone is pushed to the highest levels, shots at 50 thousand iso and you can use the files without problems (personal experience, I can provide the shots taken at a third-class football match at night with lighting from the suburban field, on the 70-200 f2.8 and you fly); and let's face it, a body with bacteria grip and dual battery does NOT do the same things, a single processor body does NOT do the same things. Here IS THE SPEED. Point Of course, in today's world 20 megapixels are "few", the push of the media raises many doubts about what is the exact amount to have, and here people take a 7d2 from 24megapixel on apc-s, or 32 on the 90D (and now on the R7) and you fall back into the trap of marketing; here you have "only" 20, but when you print your beautiful exhibition billboard, and you have taken well, you will enjoy them all. Then there is the video part, and here from 120 fps with one of the best files ever seen on the market (try it to believe) with a naturalness on colors and transactions to border on magic, and then move on to 4K 60 fps in cinematic format (so not the classic 3840 x 2160 but rather the 4096 x 2160) with incredible detail. Enclose all this in a room that you take in hand and you understand that it will accompany you, willingly accepting the weight and bulk as good companions because you know that it is thanks to those that everything works perfectly. The biggest flaw I do to this camera, and here we are talking about only market choice and not technological limit, is that the touch screen you can use it ONLY to select the AF in live-view, and this thing freaks me out because it did not cost him anything to put it also as a menu navigation (which they did on the dx3, very comfortable) and if then they had put the screen at least reclining, if not even flippable, here they would no longer have sold the next ones and here you understand the marketing choices. They did the 2 already knowing how the 3 will be, this says a lot. That said, those who complain about the WEIGHT, those who complain about the COST, make it clear that they did NOT understand what they have on their hands (or what has NOT given many write / speak without knowing) I took a long time to discover the true nature of this room, that despite the new models and the consequent lowering of price I had to suffer a lot to bring it home, although I could take a good used R5 with the same money "because it is newer, has more megapixels, takes more shots and has eye tracking" but then, in the end, when I found myself with an R3 in my hand, you understand the differences. To you all other considerations, good light and sleep well at night, I recommend ?

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.
