I'm very curious about the 5DIII however, if it is faster with a better focus, and better pixel pitch, It would be very desirable.

Not sure any of the 1Dx attributes really appeal to me at this point other then high FPS bragging rights.

But I also don't have any super telephotos or teleconverters that I rely on.
I think that the 1D X is aimed at sports photogs that need high ISOs and high SS and have the lenses they need for reach. It'll be a basketball and hockey photographer's dream. It can be good as a wildlife shooter, but it'll need extra focal length to make up for its large pixel-pitch.
