Since it was possible to purchase the 1d Mark IV on several online shops, I expect the 1D X will end up there as well. The question is only when.
I expect prices will be more or less the same. Comparing previous 1-series and current 5-series pricing in shops I have seen there is much more variation in 5-series prices as Canon won't be controllng prices so much as with a 1-series body.
Well, the 1D Mark IV hardly, if anything, dropped in price whatsoever. You can still buy a new one for $5k. The 1Ds III only dropped $1200 new since 2007. I don't think you'll see any drop in price of the 1DX for at least 3 years.
