1DX - "Oh the oil of it all"
6 months ago

So I'm on my 4th 1DX due to mirror box issues and I'm starting to learn this animal well.

Go through my last group of shots and I notice funky focus and exposure issues that are rearing their ugly heads again....

Sure enough... took a snap of blue sky and it's like Shell Oil has moved into my ridiculous 1DX.  Went through my blue sky pictures for water sports and..... It's a post nightmare

So now for the third time in 3 months I'm having my 1DX cleaned with about 7000 shots to its name.

"Oh the oil of it all"

I hope I don't have to get a 5th 1DX to get a working copy..... AGAIN!!!!!

Are you supposed to just keep cleaning the thing until it breaks each time?

Canon!!!  This is a nightmare!
