VERY interesting what she says in the first video beginning at the 4:10 mark. 

Essentially that "one of the biggest differences between the 5dmIII and the 1dX is that the shutter is rated at 400,000 cycles vs. 150,000 for the 5dmIII.

Really?  That's one of the biggest differences for a camera that costs over $3,000 more? 

hmm.

Shutters are really expensive. Hence the obsession with shutter actuation. ;-)

Yes, one of the biggest, not the only.

That video is long, but very informative! Thanks for posting!!!

One funny bit is the charts lists effective MP and then gives advantage hihglighted in red to 1DX even though it has more than one of the others on the list and less than the other hah, now that's just getting sneaky, come on haha.

5 stops better SNR than the 1Ds3 also seems a bit.... 'interesting'. Maybe someone at Canon will get the Nobel Prize in physics next year.  :D

Sure I agree it's a valid selling point, but for some reason it struck me as alarming that one of the 'major' differences between those two price points is the shutter durability.  I mean yeah, it's nice to have that extra sense of reliability, but I didn't hear anything that convinced me that there will be such a leap between the two cameras as to justify the more than twice the price.

Don't get me wrong - I'm sure it's gonna be a great camera but I don't know at this point if I would be more upset about the price of the 5dmIII (as everybody was complaining about already) or the extra cash I'd fork out for the 1dX for a few upgrades.  I hope I'm making some sense here.

I certainly hope the 1DX sensor delivers an improvement in IQ compared to the 5DmkII and 5DmkIII.  Now that would be a justification for the price difference, or at least a portion of it!

It's the 12fps, 60ms mirror blackout, better VF mag, better sealing, along with the longer shutter life. I'm sure 12fps mirror box has to cost more to make than a 6fps one.

So now that it is clear that f/8 auto focus is not possible, what have they been doing during these delays for the 1Dx?

The presentation video very informative... one thing i thought was odd... she said the 1dx supports AF expansion 4pts and 8pts and said the 7D doesn't have the 8pt expansion... the 7D has the 9pt "zone" cluster... so i wonder what the difference, if any that has to the single pt and 8pt expansion the 1dx/5d3 has..
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.

One of the major differences is the ability to track, which is one of the important things I care about, that and the shutter durabillity and build and usability. The camera needs to be on edge following my every move, the 5d2 starts to argue with me if I go faster than a snail. That is of MAJOR importance.

After watching both videos, and after all those months of waiting, and waiting, and reading all kind of "this and that" on forums, I'm pretty sure that 1Dx is going to be AWESOME camera.
When we lay our hands on our new toy, that will be the minute when we'll forget about all specs, and technobabble we shared so far.
Nothing else will matter, except new, powerfull, amazing piece of photo-art in our hands.

and than...

and than... "they will live happily ever after"  ;D
