That's it! I'm done waiting on Canon to come out with a Mirrorless FF replacement for my 1DXII so I'm making to move to SONY.

I'm tired of traveling with all the weight of the 1DXII and the idea of buying a 2 year old 5DIV, that is not really much smaller, just doesn't sit well with me.

I'm going to try the Metabones adapter with my Canon Lenses and see how that works out. Maybe in a few years Canon will catch up to Sony, but I just can't wait any longer. : (

As a sports photog who works in TOUGH conditions, I have to laugh. The toys that Sony make would crush the first sideline hit they took. My 1DXMKII and big whites have proven they can take hits and keep working. The sonys crumble like toys. Ive seen it first hand.

Very true.  I'm not sure what the OP is up to with this post.  The Sony he bought is not a replacement for a 1DX model at all.  But I guess his post will attract some Sony fanboys.  For me, until Sony can deal with their issues...the latest being those beautiful zebra stripes, I'd avoid it.  For now, Canon and Nikon produce the real pro tools.
