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. : (

I find this strange.

The 1DxII is a very different camera. It's a big pro camera that would survive being used as a weapon in a zombie apocalypse designed for use in any conditions plus.

I see them as very different cameras and not really a replacement.

I do see the comparison with the 5D4 but if weight is the main decider, it's not that big a difference.

Anyway.... to each their own. Good luck.
