At iso100 -> 800, I don't think you'll notice any difference in IQ...

...but that's about the only area where these two are about equal.

EVERYTHING ELSE will be either a small noticeable improvement (such as the better screen, faster review/magnify, snappier shutter), while most things will be a HUGE improvement (high iso, AF accuracy/precision/consistency, buffer, video - if you want it, FPS, etc.)

Basically, you could sell the 1Ds3 & 1DIV, and get just the 1DX, and you'll still have the best of everything you currently do and more...

Except for battery life, which is about a hair worse than the 1DIV, and quite a bit worse than the 1Ds3.

Thanks XeroJay,

I need however two bodies for wedding so I will sell only my mark3.

Do you miss those 3 megapixel on the 1DX?
