The 1DX is already he best of 7D and 5D... and then some.

Canon will only make a 5DX if they don't mind upsetting a large portion of their customer base. Oh, wait. They already did that. New pro body which lowers the resolution (a tick against the landscape folk), reduces the crop size (a tick against the sports and wildlife folk) AND doesn't autofocus with f8 (a major tick against people using f4 superteles with the tc 2x, or the 800 5.6 with the 1.4x Anyone else feel Arthur Morris' rage?).

YES! What is my upgrade path from the 7D? Kill off the 1D and eliminate f/8 focusing on it's FF "replacement." That's smart Canon. I love my white lenses but what will I use them on in the future? BTW, I shoot birds and wildlife.

My sentiments exactly...
What is truth?

Anyone else see those 4 little lights under the screen on the left?  Wonder what those are for...

the 5D2 has some sort of light there too and the holes are probably for the speaker or mic

The larger oval beneath the LCD screen is the ambient light sensor.  It tells the LCD screen how bright it should get.  The 3 smaller holes are most likely the speaker holes, as the mic holes have consistently been on the front.
