Well, i don't know if my post will have any help or not, but honestly speaking, i don't shoot weddings or photojournalism, but i shoot sports and landscapes.

I have 1Ds3 and 1D3, those are my main cameras for shooting everything from sports to portraits to landscapes and macro, but then last year on November i bought 1DX, this camera became my main body for everything except landscapes/portraits and maybe macro too, i only care about MP when i shoot at ISO100-800, i have Hasselblad so i can't imagine i go less of MP even i have a rocket AF/fps speed, i still shoot landscapes with 1Ds3 and i never look back, the only camera will replace my 1Ds3 for landscapes will be 5D3 or D800, but for sports and pj and even weddings i can be fine with 1DX, i never tried filling the buffer with 1Ds3 to test but 1D3 is bad in that when i shoot sports, but that could be the issue of the CF card not the camera itself.

In all cases, i am not ready yet to give up my 1Ds3 yet, 1DX could be main camera for speed and a backup camera for quality, so 1Ds3 is main camera for quality and 1D3 is a back camera for speed.
