I really hope this isn't true, the d800 has a dynamic range of over 14 stops and the 5dII and 5dII are under 12 stops. If the 1Dx is truly supposed to replace the 1Ds it really needs to have excellent ISO 100 performance as well. The D4 has 13 stops and Nikon had out the D3x for a long time that has 13.7 stops.

The 1dx has to at least get over 13 stops, or there is nowhere to go on the Canon platform if you need great ISO 100 performance.

I know people say it doesn't matter, but it really is a significant disadvantage when you are doing high contrast outdoors photography to have lower dynamic range.

I think the 1DX will sell mainly because of it's ultra pro-performance and low-light delivery. I don't expect its sensor to be new technology but just an improvement of the old sensors. Suffice to say, it won't break any record other than clean high-iso.
I sincerely hope to be 100% wrong though.

It would be very difficult to sell the 1D X unless it was a better camera.
