I was kinda expecting more people to vote (at least from what I see in posts, looks like everyone has a 1DX on preorder).

I find it really interesting that discussions are popping up indicating that Canon is rethinking it's stance on "the big sensor" camera, due to the overwhelming interest in Nikon's D800. Am I to understand that Canon didn't realize most pro shooters were expecting the next flagship body to be a 35-40 mp sensor full frame? Am I to understand further that the minds at Canon have been awakened by the fact that their major competitor actually produced a 36.6 mp camera, and even more amazingly, is sending it to retail shelves for people to actually buy? If there's a shred of truth to any of that line of thinking, someone should line Canon upper mgmnt. up and tell them to "seek other opportunities". That doesn't even address the fact that Nikon did this all at a street price of $2995.00.

As a two decade Canon devotee, with enough invested in bodies and glass to choke a horse, I'm more than a little disillusioned by their current seeming lack of strategy.

Ahhh, so your need for high resolution must have driven you to abandon Canon long ago, in favor of medium format?  Right?!?

What makes you think Canon lacks strategy?  They dominate the dSLR market for a reason.  Objective reviewers who have compared the D800 and 5DIII have concluded that the 5DIII is a better all-around camera, although for landscapes the D800 is better. So, it sounds to me like Canon's strategy is right on track - and that strategy is, of course, to make the most profit possible.

I have north of 100K invested in Canon gear so I'm not abandoning the brand anytime soon. Canon has served me well. My aviation and architectural work really lend themselves to larger mp sensors, but it's not practical to invest 49K in one body, lens and back with Hasselblad. So, I've been biding my time hoping the rumors of a 35 to 40 mp Canon body would come to fruition.

I'm just saying that Canon appears a bit confused at this point. When a company with the history of Canon is relegated to talking about the release of the manual for their flagship camera, but can't get one to a retail shelf within 9 months of the announcement, it makes a loyal user like myself a little curious as to where it's all going.

If you don't know a single professional shooter that is jonesing for the next sensor mp bump, your circle of pro friends and acquaintances  must be a bit small. Once again they are just tools to do a job, and everyone's perspective, preference and budget, is different.

Same here, although I recall quite a few people saying they did so!

I thought about it, and still thinking about cancelling my  pre-order 1dx. After hearing the September rumors and knowing I preordered late March or so...I broke down and ordered a 5d mk iii figuring I would have time to make a decision on FF vs crop.
I am just a hobby nature tog, so $ could be used in wiser places. So, now I guess I get to review 7d vs 1d mk iv vs 5d mk iii vs 1dx.
I'll post on YouTube what I find if anyone cares.
7d, 5d mk iii, 1d4, 1dx, 35mm f1.4L, 70-200mm IS ii USM, 300mm f4 IS USM, 600mm f4l is USM, 400mm f2.8l is usm, 14mm tamron f2.8, 17-40mm f4L, 24-70 f2.8L USM, 85f1.2L USM, 100mm f2.8 macro

I actually cancelled the 1D X preorder in place of a 5D Mark III.  For my personal photography, there isn't anything the 1D X is going to be able to do that my 5D Mark III and 1D Mark IV can't do.  I'm just not seeing it.  Now, there are features of the 1D X that my two cameras don't have, that people DO need.  I just don't really need 12 fps in really low light.

Most of those who would order a 1D X are pros, and are busy earning a living.  I'm retired and can't afford one.  Unless there is a specific need for the features, or a person is able to afford it for a hobby, you can do very well with a 5D MK III series.
