ok....so i sent it back....after 2 days, they called and asked in what circumstances the err 80 came up, and they told me they had no idea what was wrong with it. they can see that i've experienced the err 80, but they can't replicate it.

so they told me to take it back and wait for a new firmware.

A member on the CDP Forums was told it was a PCB issue and had said board replaced by the Canon service center in Hollywood CA.
When his 1DX was returned to him the err80's came back after a few days.
I had a lot of err80's yesterday, trying to auto focus in low light. I cleared all custom settings and it's been fine ever since (Not ideal as I customize for a reason).
IMO it's just buggy firmware. I can't imagine Canon don't know about this issue. I know three other 1DX shooters (In NY) that have had err80's. Some had them more frequently than others and funny enough, the ones with greater customization had more err80's. Go figure.

sure shot

Maybe we should do a Poll. Granted it's a small sample on here, but it would be interesting to find out how many 1DX shooters have been getting err80's.

Yep it is about time that we start talking about a Poll. Let's start coming up with some sort of draft.

1) My 1DX works flawlessly with all lens, battery, and memory card combinations available to me
2) I have experienced Error 80 continuously since I first turned my camera on
3) I experience Error 80 with select lenses only
4) I experience Error 80 with select memory cards only
5) I have not experienced Error 80 but the memory card activity light stays on for prolonged periods of time but has caused no issues so far
6) I have not experienced Error 80 but the memory card activity light stays on for prolonged periods of time and has caused my camera to lock up
7) My camera has locked up from Error 80 as well as the memory card activity light bug (throws no error code)

8) I saw an Err 80 just once, after a few hundred shots. I've taken several thousand shots since then with no reoccurrence.

FWIW, I've used only SanDisk Extreme Pro 16 GB 60 Mb/s and 32 GB 90 Mb/s cards. No lockup, I've shot >5000 frames.  I've used 11 lenses with it, zooms, fast primes (the complete holy trinity), macro, TS-E.

IIRC, I got the error with the 24-105mm, I was mounting lenses in quick succession and likely mounted or removed a lens during powering off or on. I attribute it to a fluke.
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

Several thousand shots for me. Messing around with 24/105, 70/200, 100/400, 300 with 1.4x and 2x. all posible combinations. So far no problems at all. ;D ;D 8)
If you debate with a fool onlookers can find it VERY difficult to tell the difference.

For those with no errors, how much customization of the camera settings have you done?

Completely customized on every possible menu... so yes, highly altered camera settings.

I just read this whole thread, and while I may have missed it, one possible contributor to the problem seems to have dropped off the evaluation/poll discussion, that being whether people have the orientation linked AF point feature turned on or not.

Has anyone experienced the err80 issue with orientation linked AF points turned OFF?

I personally have not experienced this error (yet), but I also disabled the orientation linked AF point feature as soon as I read it was creating other problems. So far, I have only shot with the 24-70 f/2.8 L, 70-200 f2.8 L IS, and 70-200 f/2.8L IS with 1.4X Extender.

I've shot over 2,400+ photos with my 1DX. I've only used the 70-200 f/2.8 II (my favorite lens) and never ran into this problem. This past weekend, however, I did get the camera to lock-up.

As a note, I do have orientation specific AF points set -- as does the only other user I know of to see the 1DX lock-up.
