1DX - anyone else wish it were a 1.3 crop?

Maybe I'm in an extreme minority, but I've been using the 1D, 1D Mark II, 1D Mark III, and 1D Mark IV for many years, and I really wish this new 1D X were a 1.3 crop. I'm just used to my lenses with the 1.3 crop. To me, for my uses, the 24-70mm f2.8 is much more useful on a 1.3 crop. I had a 5d Mark II for a little while, and the 24-70 was too wide on the long end. I also like how my 70-200mm f2.8 II and 70-300L work on the 1D with the 1.3 crop. They're long enough that I rarely use my 100-400 anymore, which I think produces less quality images than the other two.

Anyone else disappointed that Canon has abandoned the 1.3 crop?
