If it can perform well at high iso then I agree with you completely, although havent there been rumours in the nikon world of its high iso performance being not so flash?While the specs are very likable (61-point AF/7.5 fps), with an AF system that is similar to what Nikon has to offer in their D700 or the upcoming D800, this is simply too close spec-wise to the 1D X. This is seriously going to threaten both the 1D X's position, as well as the 7D (including it's successor) as a sports oriented, fast machine. A 5 fps is more reasonable. For the megapixels 22 is pretty good, I like how Canon decides to stay around this limit, however, can it compete against Nikon's much confirmed 36MP D800? We have yet to see how they perform... And by the way, from the leaked images, to me that's much of what the Mark III will look like and I am very impressed by how they modifies it and applies a 7D layout to it. It just looks more ergonomic and well designed than the Mark II.
OTOH, 5fps with 22MP would get slammed by a 36MP 4fps FF and 16MP 6fps APS-C dual D800 with Nikon's best AF.
