    Bird photography and those set of lenses? It has to be the 1Dx - no contest.

          I have a 1DX and 5D III with the same lenses you have (though I sold the 500 recently). I never use the 5D III for bird photography. The frame rate is too slow.

            I endorse the views of the guys above , I shoot 98% wildlife and always use the 1DX and more often than not a 500mm F4 occasionally with a 1.4x tc.

              One further thought which you are probably aware of is that it will be worthwhile micro-adjusting the lenses, especially the longer focal lengths, which have a shallow depth of field.
