Caught that on NR - sounds a bit of a fanboy mashup of the D3 & 1DX

Having actually done this test (7D v 5D2, 24" landscape prints) I can tell you that nobody can tell the difference or tell which print comes from which at low to mid ISO. Out of camera there are some small differences between the two at low ISO, but those differences do not survive post work or printing. I've even challenged people with 100% unlabeled crops, after post processing, only to have them completely fail to say which came from where.
Both make excellent 24" landscape prints, and very good 30" prints, and that's about the limit for critically reviewed landscape prints (i.e. close viewing; judging on fine detail). I highly doubt the 1Dx will change this for landscapes since the limiting factor here is the resolution of fine detail like distant foliage.
There are some CA, but nothing terrible. Do you think it is possible that Canon would make f/1.2 version instead of f/1.4 MkII? Any thoughts about 135mm f/1.8L ? (even Sony has one )
2008: 1000D, 50D, 5D2
2009: 500D, 7D, 1D4
I don't get why you would increase the filter size of the 35L to 77mm... All the shorter focal range primes are 72mm threads..
