You can imagine all the prototype mirror assemblies that self destructed at 11FPS before they got one that didn't at 12, and would keep it up for 200,000 frames. All that time and cost has to be amortised across not many bodies in a camera like the 1D X.

This was an eye opener. Thanks!

I was not aware of the inherent complexity of the FPS technology. That would certianly contribute to the cost as you pointed out. As it stands, FPS is of little interest to me. This will certainly impacs my planning going forward in a very positive way.
