I would make it a 7D mk II.
What is truth?

I wish they would sell a version that is 5Dmk3 sized ie no built in grip
everything else the same as the bulky one. these days the bulk is not
as necessary.

But surely it shouldnt be that hard

As far as I'm concerned the 1DX is damn near perfect and worthy of the coveted DSLR Gold Standard status.
Just sort the red AF points out for us. The firmware fix sounds like a glass half empty.

Is this a wish list? OK, lose 20% bulk & weight. The 1DX is BIG!

more menu options on "my menu"

Perhaps then "my menu" looses it purpose if it becomes crowded. I think.

At the very least they could've implemented "changing af scenarios" as an option for My Menu.

Question; if I upgrade to the 1.1.1 and don't like it, can I set my camera to function EXACTLY like it is with the 1.0.6?

A lot of the wishlists are already taken care by Canon's latest firmware though my only wishlist isn't yet delivered.  My wishlist is to have a 1DX...  ::)  Actually it's a dream.  ;D

Yup.  :)  I might go for 5D3 instead.  1DX is so far from my budget.  Maybe if I earn a little bit from my hobby, I'll consider a 1DX.

If it is, I'd take it in a heartbeat even if I draw the ire of my wife.  Everything be damned but almost nothing can stop me from getting it.

Sensor pixel density identical to the 1D4. As such the 1DX does not have as much reach as the 1D4.
Visit my Flickr, Facebook & 500px and see my photos. :)

Yup you're correct but IQ is different.  DR is different.  AF is different.  Low-light performance is different.  UWA smallest focal length is different.  I guess it just depends on what type of photos you are shooting.  For most cases 1D4 is enough but 1DX opens a new door to versatility.  That said, for my shooting purposes, 5D3 is enough though I'd prefer a 1DX given an opportunity to grab one.
