Would you not rather buy the 1DX than the D4?
Jan 11, 2012

Below is a list of differences (on paper) between the D4 and the 1DX which a few members have contributed to. I find myself asking, if one is not invested in glass, would you not rather buy the 1DX based on these specs? I am a little disappointed.

1DX -- D4

  • resolution: 18.1 MP -- 16.2 MP

  • ISO: 100-51200 -- 100-12800

  • AF: 61 -- 51

  • FPS: 12 -- 10

  • LCD dots: 1,040,000 -- 921,000

  • Video: 1920 x 1080 (30, 25, 24 fps, 1280 x 720 (60, 50 fps), 640 x 480 (60, 50 fps) -- 1920 x 1080 (30, 25, 24 fps), 1280 x 720 (60, 50, 30, 25 fps), 640 x 424 (30, 25 fps)

  • Audio: Stereo -- Mono

  • Slots: 2 x CF -- 1 CF, 1 XQD

  • AF X-types: 41 -- 15

  • CPU: 3 -- 1

  • Shutter lag: 36ms -- 42ms

  • FPS no AE&AF : 14 -- 11

  • Timecode: yes -- no

  • Wind Filter: yes -- no

  • Compression Types: 2 -- 1

  • Sound Recording Steps: 64 -- 60

Then there is of course the battery issue with the D4. Anyone care to add anything to the list?
