1dxii WOW!! as a present owner to the 1dx I felt I had everything when shooting outside, and as always when we shoot inside there’s flaws to get over, no daylight and shooting sport horses under ambient light means you have to know your equipment, the improvements that canon have made to this camera are immense, the speed and accuracy of the AF system in low light, the dynamic range of the files, the selectable range of silent shutter gives greater flexibility, the Sharpness of the images, the extended IOS range, the flicker detection works well, the extended range of battery, the list goes on, Best in its Range by far!
