It is obvious that there are clueless non-professionals and clueless professionals in this forum. There are also knowledgeable folks, professionals and non, on both sides of this debate. Your comments show a disturbing level of ignorance for the intelligence of the audience you are attempting to address.

Bear in mind, the typical non-professional purchasing equipment at this level are professionals in other fields or successful enough to be able to purchase such equipment whose average income as a group far out-strip the average professional photographer's income as a group. These people are generally well educated and can read technical papers and learn proper technique and develop the necessary skills. IOW, you ain't pulling the wool over too many eyes.

Also, bear in mind that once the 1D X is released, you will be shooting with the amateur camera and some boorish pro will be hammering you. Remember, you are never at the top of the food chain in photography unless possibly you are shooting with the Hubble Telescope.
