The only Canon camera that i feel sorry that it is discontinued is 1D Mark IV, i have 1Ds MarkIII so i am not a big fan about 5DII even it has better high ISO and video, now i have 1DX i really never care about 5DII not even 5DIII, but i really wish if i got 1D4 before 1DX, now waiting for new 1 series crop body fast, sometimes in sports and wildlife i need a crop factor too.

the 1.3 format is discontinued and I don't think Canon will bring it back in the 1D series again. The 1Dx is a money making machine for Canon. Many pros updated from the 1D4 and they had to buy new lenses as the 'classic 400/2.8L' is no longer long enough. Sales of the 500/600 have gove up probably.

It would be nice to have the 1.3 format in the 7D MKII though
