Canon’s EOS 1Dx was purchased in November 2012.  Never thought I would leave Canon’s APS-H sensor (1.3x) for a full frame camera for wildlife photography.  The two main reasons for moving were the FPS (frames per second) and ISO performance.  The 1Dx's full frame sensor 18.1Mp CMOS (Dual DIGIC 5+ Image Processors) have beautiful color rendition. With 14-bit processing and new higher standard ISO performance, I have captured quality images up to 8000 ISO.  One of the prime reasons I moved from the Canon Mark IV to the 1Dx was for the advanced 61-Point High Density Reticular AF (autofocus) system and amazing 12 frames per second (RAW + JPEG).  The pros about this body are the lighting fast AF, ISO performance, build quality and weather sealing.  The major con about this body is the weight (Mark IV = 41.6oz; IDX=53.8oz).  The camera body weight is noticeable when doing hand-held shooting. This is certainly the best Canon camera I have photographed with since my last film camera (HS IV).
