1DX - Portraits vs. Sports - The 1DX can do both - Next step Mamiya?

I was told by so many people when I bought the 1DX that is was not a good portrait camera and I should have bought a Nikon 800 or a 5DMIII.

Is it me? I think the 1DX is a wonderful camera for portraits. Am I missing something here? Why is there such snobbery with regards to MP's?

I know these can be improved upon but I'd rather have 18 good MP's with the DR I need to pull from the shadows.

I need another body and here I am loving portraits, do I wait for Canon's new 1DX to come out or take the MF plunge?

Does anyone else here use a 1DX and a Mamiya Leaf Credo 40MP Digital Back Kit with 645DF+ Medium Format DSLR and 80mm f/2.8 LS D Lens??  If so can you offer any advice?  Do you feel you made the right choice of the 1DX and Mamiya?
