I know, everyone is going mirrorless and smaller, lighter. This camera still has a mirror and it’s HUGE!
Here’s the thing: I own a 1D X that died a salt water death when my underwater housing leaked. I tried to love my Sony A7 that died when it fell from the sky on a drone. I am trying to love my Nikon D850 that shoots AMAZING high-res images.
But none of them hold a candle to the 1D when it comes to shooting action. I am leaving for an off-road motorcycle rally in a week and I’m paying 💰💰💰 to rent a 1D X MK II for the trip. I shoot action of wildlife & sports and I sorta get by with the D850, but not really. It takes some luck and wincing over shots that would have been in focus.
An old school holdout am I?
