It seems to me that Canon has abandoned us EOS1D users...such a pitty.You're so right. Yesterday, my 1D X was awesome...today it's suddenly a piece of crap.
As far as usability and iq goes, the low-res 1dx might do still do ok-ish :-) ...
... but alas, with about a third of the metapixie count if the new flagships, the glamour and prestigious ownership might take a hit for six. I imagine we'll see less "just get the best" 1dx people who don't make use of its capability as these customers will go 5ds now.
the funny thing about this is ----look at nikon --- they went with big mp first...but what did their flagship d4 and d4s get? 16.2MP --- 16 on the d4 which was pre sony chip era, and 16 on the d4s which was after the sony partnership.
maybe canon's market research showed that people who need extremely high quality large file images aren't shooting sports? LOL, how many studio strobes can fire at 14 fps? lol (and yeah, do you really need 14fps if you mounted to a tripod at iso 100, f16, and a 10 stop filter on your camera....lol....)
