Uh Oh. Major Flaw found in the 1DX ??
Oct 21, 2011

Looks like a few people have discovered no mention of F/8 sensors in the 1DX. meaning, if you use a 500 F/4 because you are a serious birder, and you add in a 2X teleconvertor, then it is full time manual focus for you.

Looks like Chuck has confirmed it as well with a minor mention in an interview with no follow up question.

I talked with Craig Blair on this yesterday on the show, and he mentions it today on his site. He is doing further investigation, but this seems to be a major omission in the 1DX design. I will wait to see how this shakes out before I mention it on my own site.

Could this possible be fixed in firmware? Or since the release is in March, is there time to add it into the design?
