The 1Dx camera body in general has less shutter lag, less shutter blackout, higher frame rate, more customizable AF, much better build quality, better AF system (more points, more cross points), better auto exposure system to name a few. In general, the body feels very responsive compared to a 5DIII with better AF and AE systems.
Actually they have the same amount of AF points and cross-type points, I do believe. One question though to anyone who can confirm: Do the AF points cover the exact same amount of the frame? I love the 1DX AF point layout. Is the 5DIII identical in this regard?
Yes and yes.
The only notable difference in AF between the two is that the 1DX has does face detection which feeds into the AF and metering system, the 5D3 does not. The AF unit itself between the two cameras is identical. I suspect there are some firmware differences to account for the higher speed of the 1DX.
