Am I the only one excited about the 1Dx sensor?

Right now as a 5d Mark II walk around shooter, having the sensor with the best low light performance of the Canon line up, I CONSTANTLY struggle with keeping noise in check.

Every second that I'm not shooting on a sunny brightly lit day I'm always trying to perform the careful balance of shutter speed, aperture and iso and it always feels like I'm just on the very edge of getting usable photos. I know this because I throw away a lot of photos because of sensor noise. My style of shooting lends itself to pushing fill light, contrast and sharpness pretty hard so this isn't a problem with jpg, but I'm just really excited at the 1Dx sensor. I feel like it might finally give me a camera that will let me be less anxious about reeling in noise and worry more about just getting the photo.

Is anyone else as excited as I am?
