DR is less than the D800/D800E. 
Half the MP's as the D800
It's too heavy
The AF system is too cumbersome and complicated
DxO rated it lower than the D800 (future complaint)

Don't turn the LCD light on when you are taking pictures of your lens cap then  ;D

I just read somewhere that there is an adapter to use your EF lenses on an iPhone. (strange what people think is useful)
So --- till the price for the 1DX is to high, lets all cancel our orders and use the Iphone instead!

What kind of magnification (crop factor) will we have then? 100X 1000X ?   ;D
In that case someone will probably be able to take interesting photos...  ::)

Normally there are 2 groups of people complaining:
1. people who can't afford the camera but want it
2. people who couldn't afford it yet somehow bought the camera and now are looking for any excuse to return it

Why are people comparing the 1DX to the D800? I'm a Canon fanboy and my stance is that the 5D Mark III is better because it has 4 megapixels more than the 1DX. On that note, I guess even the 5D Mark II is better too! But I suppose the D800 and D3200 are still better than any Canon body right? LOL ;)

Hmm good point, shouldn't we be comparing the 1DX to the D4 instead of the D800?

Nah. You can't compare anything to the D800. With that much DR and that many megapixels, anyone can shoot National Geographic covers with the D800 ;D

No!  NOOOOOOOOOO!  Don't you know that DxO compares EVERYTHING to the D800?
