First I thought: don't feed the troll but at a second thought I'd say: it depends on your photographical preferencies. If you do loads of low light (I do) then why not? If your budget allows that, then why not? I am happy with my 5D3 so far and I just wish, next bodies will slightly improve in high ISO. Don't have the budget for an 1Dx, and for my purposes, as an amateur, the 5D3 is more camera than I will ever need... So go for it. Or join both camps and go D4s. Who cares? Gear just fits one's requirements. Not more, not less. I am looking forward to an overnext 5D body cycle doing decent 51k and very usable 102k.

Im not a troll, this is a genuine question. I want to buy such a camera, and dont upgrade for many years. I also read manuals front to back and again I know, the 5d MK3 is also a very serious DSLR.

I recently bought a 1Dx. Only one reason. I do a lot of action stuff. That's the ONLY reason to spend so much.

If you don't do action, you don't need to spend that much to get better results for less..

Sorry bro, sports shooting isn't the ONLY reason to buy a 1DX.  If you're going to shoot in dicey weather/environmental conditions and/or going to shoot with only one body - the 1DX is the only Canon choice.  I'm definitely an amateur, and when I can only take one body - it's the 1DX.
