^^^ Canon seems to be giving people what they want...
seriously, this is no better than a D3S. ie: "better autofocus, better low light, etc, sensible mp"
what the hell does this mean;
"New 61-Point High Density Reticular AF
The EOS-1D X includes a brand new 61-Point High Density Reticular AF, the most sophisticated DSLR AF system Canon has ever released. The 21 focusing points in the central area are standard precision cross-type and effective with maximum apertures as small as f/5.6, depending on the lens in use. The center five points are also high-precision diagonal cross-type points for maximum apertures as small as f/2.8. All 61 points are sensitive to horizontal contrast with maximum apertures as small as f/5.6 and 20 of the outer focusing points function as cross-type points with maximum apertures as small as f/4.0. Other innovations of the new 61-point High Density Reticular AF include expanded AF coverage area, superior focusing precision and low light sensitivity, and greater low-contrast subject detection capability compared to earlier EOS AF systems.

i always assumed i was able to af at all apertures, on all focus points with my d700 and d300s. am i wrong? i have no idea what canon is on.
as for needing 36mp, well maybe not, but if it has iso as good as a d7000, and why shouldn't it as it will have exactly the same pixel density.
it will be nice to be able to print up to A0 without forking out for medium format and lenses. i will most likely buy when if it does turn out to be what has been rumored.
that doesn't even take into account the D4
