Jim this is awesome news BRAVO Canon, also
According to Rob Galbraith, Chuck Westfall said "...an ISO 51,200 photo from the EOS-1D X shows roughly equivalent noise levels to an ISO 12,800 photo taken with the EOS-1D Mark IV."
and the Multiple Exposure is a real treat as well

Looks rather snazzy. A tremendous camera for the working pro.

Sports, wildlife, weddings, stock, studio, video, photojournalism. And with a motorized panoramic head and 12fps - even very high rez stiched landscape images.

Could anything be more versatile? Impressive indeed. Not of course that I would ever be the slightest bit tempted, but it sure is easy to admire.

I am going to buy this camera. It's too good to pass up. Of course, I wont be able to afford a used one until the 1d-XX comes out.

A great camera indeed. Feels a little bigger in dimension looking at the pictures.

My mark III has been my only camera for quite sometime now. And i am tempted to try the 1d X but only after the prices come down

It really is going to be interesting to see what happens to this camera in the market. The specs are great, but the price point is very high. Remember a major consumer of the 1d camera line is media shooters. Media companies (think newspapers) are really in a crunch. It will be interesting to see if the market will support the price points Canon has set for the 1dx and the new 300mm 2.8 and 400mm 2.8 lenses.

Actually the 1Dx price is quite reasonable considering the falling dollar (Like JohnG has mentioned, has anyone checked the prices of the 300/400/500L lately?).

This body will retail for less than an existing 1Ds MrkIII after inflation (and much less than a D3x)! I can see where this can be a great action camera, but isn't it a step down from a 1Ds series for people who don't shoot sport with it?
A 5D MrkII is still a better fit for this market over the 1Ds (and then there are still Nikon and Sony) with higher resolution camera's. This is especially valid for the studio where most 1Ds will be used. Folks there don't need 61 AF points (one would be plenty), 12FPS (the lights can't keep up), and the highest ISO ever needed is 400!
Video? Hahahahaha

-> IMO it's a non 1Ds MrkIII replacement, and I don't see any compelling reason for owners to upgrade if any... May be that's why it'll be priced less than the MrkIII
