Default Canon Introduces New Flagship Professional DSLR, EOS-1D X

Looking for the 'ultimate' DSLR camera? It pains me to say this as a Nikonian, but it's Canon that has the right to that title, with its just-released EOS-1D X. Replacing both the 1Ds Mark III and 1D Mark IV, the EOS-1D X is designed to suit all sorts of professional shooters. It's faster, even more capable and brings a couple of new things to the table.

Read the rest of our post and then discuss it here!
Intel Core i7-3960X, GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2, Kingston 16GB DDR3-2133, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 2GB
Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD (OS, Apps), WD VR 1TB (Games), Corsair 1000HX, Corsair H70 Cooler
Corsair 800D, Dell 2408WFP 24", ASUS Xonar Essence STX, Gentoo (KDE 4.11. 3.12 Kernel)

>> The EOS-1D X is packed as it is, but taking things to another level, it includes a 1Gbit/s LAN port right on the body. This can be used to transfer photos at a rate much faster than USB 2.0, and also be used to daisy-chain multiple cameras together.

Now, I'm just picturing 6 cameras positioned around a fountain shooting at 12 FPS for a few seconds before switching to another exposure mode. Or 4 cameras recording a full panorama video. Everything computer controlled.

There's actually a bank close by that is poorly guarded... hmm...
