Well written, Robert. In the selection of our new equipment, I fully agree with you that we need to be governed by our own needs and preferences, and evaluate/test the equipment ourselves. Naturally, there are also budgetary as well as cost-benefit concerns, but that is obvious.
1DX is pretty good, but I wouldn't say it's all you need. 1DX would benefit from a few extra Mp, (-3) EV AF sensors, better active AF point display, lower weight etc. Thus, 1DX MkII might be the camera you've been waiting for.
