I'm curious. What does 12 fps get you that 10 doesn't? I mean, photographically. It's a shot every 83 msec instead of every 100msec. I have not been in a situation where I found myself thinking, "Dagnabbit, if I had 12 fps I would have gotten that shot."
In baseball, those 2 frames could mean a difference of capturing the ball being flattened against the bat, vs the ball just hovering off the bat making it indeterminate of whether it was hit or is about to be hit. It also means you have 20% higher chance of getting just that one perfect frame.
I found that 10fps was good for these shots and 12 wouldn't have helped any more, but there are other situations it would. If you know the event you are shooting, 10fps coupled with experience makes things a bit easier. If not, 12 or 14fps makes things easier. In the first shot of the caught pop fly, that ball will travel about 1-2 feet less per frame at 12fps vs 10.
With 4K video and the ability to pull a 4K frame out, we are getting to the point that you might want to record video clips of sports. It would be less than ideal though, but that possibility now exists.
