Is the 1Dx Mark II a good stills photography camera?

How does the 1Dx Mark II compare for stills photography to the 5D mark 4 or the 5dsr?

The more I look in to the 1Dx Mark II, it seems more geared toward video then for stills, where as the 5d mk4 looks to be the best all-rounder, and the 5dsr the best portrait setup.

Now, you're probably going to ask what am I going to shoot:

-I have no interest in video

-I would like to shoot landscapes (day and night)


-Wildlife/ nature.

Also, I am aware that Canon may introduce a new 1D or 5D during the 2020 Olympics, so if someone could clue me in to more info on that, I could possibly w ait to upgrade to whatever Canon will release 2 years from now.

I just got in to photography and I love the artistic and technical aspect of it.
