Transition from 1D Mk III to 1D X
10 months ago

I was hoping someone who has experience making this transition might be able to offer any lessons learned. I've just started to look into the features so I'm not really up-to-speed .

  • Any gotchas to look out for?
  • Best memory cards?
  • How fast does the write speed really need to be to keep the buffer from filling? Or is it not possible (I usually shoot RAW + M2 on my 1DIII)
  • What sort of file sizes should I expect?
  • I see most of the same buttons in the same places (with a few additional). Seemless transition in this regard?
  • I understand there is focus tracking modes as opposed to just AI Servo. If true, is it effective?
  • Any issues with EF lenses or Extenders?
  • Other considerations

Thanks ..
