Engadget Summary

Big, heavy, and expensive, Canon's full-frame 1D x may be the ultimate professional digital SLR. It can capture 12 frames per second, shoot noise-free images at ISO 3200, and can get perfect sports and action shots with its fast auto-focus system. If you're a Canon pro, you've probably been saving for this one, so here's your chance to break out that cash and get the camera you really want.
