It would piss me off more if all they did to the next 1Dx was to add a dual pixel sensor. I mean, you can send in your canon Video camera (C-100 I believe) to have it upgraded, they should offer that option to 1Dx owners as well.
That might not be that easy - the C100/300 use a 8MP sensor to record a 2MP image - without a Bayer-matrix you end up with 6MP aquiring the cleanest HD signal possible while 2MP do nothing. The latter could simply have gotten the half shaded microlenses everybody else in the industry is using.
You'd have to turn the 1Dx into a 4,5MP Foveon-alike, I don't see that much of an audience for that. Esp. considering the C100's price.
