Re: need opinion from anyone who switched from 1DS3 to 1DX

I used a 5D3 from Canon CPS for a couple weeks before I purchased the 1Dx.  I didn't do any specific tests between the two, but my opinion after brief use is the images are comparable between the two cameras.   Canon says the 1Dx is slightly better and perhaps it is.

I purchased the 1DX over the 5D3 mainly for speed and a few other features.  The one thing I may miss from the 5D3 is the in-camera HDR feature.  I thought it was more or less a gimmick, but I tried it and found it to be quite useful for landscape images.

I don't think you'd be unhappy with either camera if you are not shooting anything that demands a high frame rate.  But I could not live with 6 fps.  I mostly use the 1DX, and have a 1D4 and 7d as backup cameras.
