    Canon 1D X Mk II Owners Thread

    Thought the value of the 1DX MKII might of held up with the price of the 1DX MKIII being fairly high but £2400 valuation offer from WEX (Before the Virus was a problem) on a 42k click camera. Think its going to just hold the door open for a year!!!

    Many thanks for the list and will have a good read up on them. should probably of made it a bit clearer really that I have been trackside shooting motorsport the last ten years so am normally carrying two 1 series bodies with a 500 prime and 70-200 attached around a track for a day so anything...

    Many thanks for the replies f/2.8 and nandbytes. Am trying to negotiate a deal on all my Canon gear for something a little easier to carry and trying to work out my best option for a primes only setup although i will add a 70-200 at a later date.

    Just looking at getting an A7III again and wondered if anyone has any decent things to say about Sigma Art lenses on the Sony as looking at getting the 35mm 1.4, 85mm 1.4 and 135mm f1.8 then building up from there.

    I still have a Selphy,battery and mains adaptor but not used it in years. Has the cost of printing from it reduced now as it used to work out very expensive. Was looking through the thousands of images i have taken over the years at motorsport the other day and really need to do a few coffee...

    Anybody moved up from the original A9 to the A9II? Just looking at finally ditching Canon and moving over fully to Sony but wondered other than physical size and 10fps mechanical shutter if its worth the extra nearly 2k.

    Canon 1D X Mk II Owners Thread

    Had a similar fault on my first 1DX MKII that only happened with my then new 500 f4 MKII that turned out to be a main board breaking down under load.

    The Fabulous Fuji X owners thread

    Hi George and wondered why you prefer the X-T2 over the X-T3. Have only heard good things about the advance in A/F performance over the X-T2 along with the viewfinder lag that edged me back over to Canon for another season. Still not had hands on with an X-T3 but would love to hear your...

    Changing from Canon 5DIV to Fuji XT-3 or Sony A7III

    Still shooting on a 1DX MKII but have had both Fuji X-T2 and Sony A7III with the Sony being used on adapted glass mainly other than a couple of weekends hire of a 70-200. Hard to pick between the Fuji and Sony in all honesty although the biggest bit i would say is cost of Sony glass and size...

    Left-handed sports' photographers

    Never had a problem being left handed but do find its a pain being left eye dominant.Smeary nose print on LCD and in motorsport you totally loose any peripheral vision of bikes and cars flying off track.

    Donington no longer photographer friendly.

    Believe me its no different now media side at most tracks,most areas are now red zones for us all or you are only aloud to transit through them between sessions.

    Canon 1D X Mk II Owners Thread

    Never really had a problem that the blower wouldnt solve on my X-T2 or Sony A7III to be honest or at least not as much as i have had with oil spots from the mirror assembly lubricant on the 1DX MKII.
