Canon 1DX Mark II DxOMark Review – 88 Points Overall
DXOMark recently published a full review of the Canon 1DX Mark II – the flagship camera of the Japanese manufacturer. It did great overall, but it still has some points behind the Sony A7 II and it is right on par with the Nikon’s flagship – The Nikon D5 camera.
Here is the final conclusion of the review, which you can find in full here.
This is a well-deserved result for Canon, and this versatile sensor should prove attractive to a wide range of photographers, including those that work in multiple disciplines. The wide dynamic range at low ISOs should appeal to all photographers, but especially those using it for landscapes, and the low noise at high ISOs will also appeal to action and sports photographers. Although the new model is aimed primarily at that market, the increase in pixel count over its predecessor now matches that of the earlier EOS-1Ds Mk III, a model that’s still highly regarded for editorial and commercial work. It is not too much of a stretch to view the new EOS-1D X Mk II as the natural successor to that camera, and its wide range of capabilities, including DCI 4K video, make it look highly tempting. Sure, it would have been great to see a higher pixel count, but overall, the sensor performance offers photographers the versatility to tackle a wide range of assignments with just one camera.
