If it can do reliable 9+ fps tracking with 90-20/2.8, it competes with $6,700 1Dx (+ $13K 200-400/4 1.4 Extender to replace that $6,000 90-250).

If it can only do 4 fps or not reliable, it competes with $1,500 6D or even cheaper 70D/D7100 (and loses to the latter for the sports, and there are other cameras like E-M5 which are perfectly good if you don't need sports).

In that case I'll just grab a Canon 1Dx

So for you personally that's what it means. The only time I use 10 FPS is on a perched or static bird (pre focused, etc), never on a BIF and never for sports, always a slow burst on those. A little different to what you thought huh

You need to stop second guessing if you don't know the subjects and what it takes. Macro would be single frame only and I'm fairly sure at a rough guess, it would handle macro just fine.

I wish some wouldn't guess what suits other people, we are all different in case you didn't know.

All the best.
