This sounds like a nightmare for action, wildlife, and PJ photographers, and a serious headache for wedding, fashion, and portrait photographers. One frame per second, maybe?

Of course. Do you really think Canon would release a 1DX killer?

I don't think you need to worry about that. The 1Dx is designed to maximize AF performance and firing rate. Anything with 75MP is not likely to match the 1Dx in the latter.

I agree entirely, which is why I was bemused by the suiggestiont that such a camera would be any use to an action photographer, PJ photographers, or wedding photographer.

This just in (fom Canon Rumors):

We have confirmed that a test camera with around 80mp is definitely in the wild. A few things to note about the camera. It’s apparently in an EOS-1 body and has a larger than 3.2″ LCD on the back. The camera also apparently shoots at a very high frame rate.

Ha... shows what we know
