I am almost a bit embarrassed to mention a filmic look....it has taken a bit of work to adjust to this camera coming from MF but I am really liking the results. Thankfully, as it was a bit of a gamble and another change in 35 lenses etc. Almost all of these are with the Zeiss ZF2s modified by Duclos and a Novoflex adapter.
Here are a couple from a gorgeous morning in the yard.

Seriously thinking about purchasing this over the mark iii
Either way it is very good, IQ is similar despite a little less MP. Metering, I find it a little better than the 5D mark III, but perhaps the only thing it loses out on is the silent mode, if that matters to you. The 1Dx also focuses a little better in lower light conditions.
Only thing I will add is, if you are not looking for the extra weather sealing and fps and vertical built in grip, then you can save yourself some money in the bank or for lenses!
When I got the 5dIII I also handlede he 1dx.
WHile I loved the feel of the 1dx for me there are 2 advantages of the 5dIII for MY use.
1) price (obvious)
2) and even more important for me: it is less obstrusive. While the 5diii allready lokks like a serious camera the 1dx dras even more attention.
Since I use it for personal use I dont to look like a press-photographer all the time.
However I admit I am not sure if it is only my feeling or if the 1dx would draw more attention in reality.
I also like to bring the camera on hikes and spending time outside.so the weight/size makes a difference as well for me.
I admit though that the 1dx feels very good in the hands!
Having nearly as good AF in the 5dIII and the 5fms/sec were some of the factoes for me to get the 5diii over another Nikon.
If I was mainly sports shooter I would get a 1dx for sure.
Absolutely best spec'ed camera out there for 35mm DSLR work IMO. The D4 may give it a run, but the D4's goofy second card isn't something you can get just anywhere in an emergency.
It is expensive, but man I could see keeping this camera for a really long time. FF 18 meg is plenty of resolution for almost any application, and the Pro Canons are built to take a licking and keep on ticking.
If I wasn't vested in my Sony stuff, I'd get one of these in a New York heart-beat. Unfortunatly, Sony doesn't have anything even remotely close to this Canon
Canon knocked it out of the ball park with the 1DX ... and ripped the cover off the ball in the process
I have a 1DX,very good high iso,amazingly fast and accurate AF and better and cleaner shadows than a 1Ds mk3.. this shot (which was taken only for a lens comparison ) shows that 18mp is still a lot of Resolution in F.F (as Marc stated in the previous comment).. and canon glass is excellent
Oh yeah,and forgot to say it's built like a Sherman tank...
I am happy with my 1DX
