7D to 1DX - Will the transition be easy?


I was going to go from the 7D to the 5DMII but I've been thinking of getting the 1DX.

Has anyone here made the same transition I'm thinking of?

If so, would you please let me know what your learning curve was like.  I so admire the camera, the focus sytem and the dynamic range.  I look at pictures and the IQ and can only dream of how much I would love the camera. I feel like I'm fighting with shadows, I know they are my own but the extra DR would be a joy!

So, thank you for taking the time to share.

I shoot sports and portraits 90% of the time and need to get another body in the next 2-4 weeks.

Best regards,


7D w/ 70-200 F/2.8 USM IS II -  1/2000 - F/4.5 - 100 ISO - Single Point Focus - Spot Metering - 100% crop
