Wooah, 32ms shutter lag? That's quick.

What I really want to know is if Canon would come out with a 1DX version that does not have any video capability would it bring the cost down a thousand or two dollars.

its actually very reliable... there are a few minor flaws once in a while, but the info is usualy all accurate.

Beautiful camera, horrible review. You shouldn't post a review until you make sure all the information you have is true and reliable like how you put the wrong info down for the focus points. You never have realistic reviews on your cameras either like when your reviews say the Nikon 5100 is better than the 7D cause the 7D has extremely good resolution at high ISO's. The 7D images blow the 5100 photos out of the water, it's on a whole new level and even beats the D300 and D90 which is said by Nikon fanatics on many review websites. This site is completely unreliable for accurate information.

You have wrong number of cross-type focus points in the spec.
