Quick samples from the Canon 1Dx and the 600mm f/4L IS II
I spent a weekend shooting with the Canon 1Dx and the new 600mm f/4L IS II, and will be posting a writeup of it soon. In the meantime, here are a few sample images taken with that combo.
For what it’s worth, my favorite combination until recently was to shoot with the 1D Mark IV and the old 600mm f/4L IS Mark I. I don’t think it’ll be giving much away to say that the 1DX and the new 600 are officially my new favorite combination for this type of photography.
This image is actually about a 2MP crop from the original 18MP image

Watch for our writeup of these new beasts from Canon later this week.
