Comparing 18mp vs 21mp (1Dx vs 1Ds3)
Jul 7, 2012

Unfortunately I have to bring back my beloved 1Ds3 (was a loaner). The new 1Dx is of course an option as a replacement. But, should I have to be worried about going back to "only" 18mp ? With the 1Ds3 I could make beautiful large prints (42" x 60").
Do you expect that the files of the 1Dx could help me out here ?

I know that the 5D3 is an option but I love the feel of the 1-serie bodies. I only will consider a 5-body if it's obvious that I am going to loose image quality.

In the next copple of weeks the comparison tests will appear. The sad thing is I have to make up my mind on a short term cause the 1Ds needs to go back to Canon.

Your thoughts are appreciated.
