No doubt. The 600mm is already on my "must buy" list and it'll be ahead of a 1D X.

I'm really curious to compare the 5D3 and 1D X AF head-to-head. I'm so pleased with the 5D3 in that regard, it's hard to imagine another step up, but we'll see. There's got to be a reason that they gave the AF system its own processor on the 1D-X.

Clearly, the 1D-X will trounce the 5D3 at ISO 16,000, but I'm very interested to compare at my "default" ISOs of 400, 800 and 1,600, to see if I can see a loss in detail. I don't know... who knows, with the 1D-X, ISO 16,000 could become my default and even my grand daughters could hand hold a 600mm lens!!!

I don't want to que until I have a target date, where I can spend a few days comparing.
