The assertion that the 1DX and 1DC are physically identical is rumor, though. It originated from a trade show discussion as I understand it; thus far no one has actually gotten a hold of a 1DC to do a teardown or even take detailed pictures of the internals. CanonRumors got a peek inside and said they were different. Same sensor, yes, but different in other respects visible to the unaided eye. For exactly what, I suppose we'll have to wait and see -- whether busing 4X the data off of the sensor onto storage requires a little reconfiguration or a lot is the issue, I guess. Canon's certainly not shy about putting out scads of different camera bodies, though; I'd be a little surprised if they exercised the restraint to not do so in this instance.
But that's all a tangent anyway....
