This will really blow your mind: I still use an all-manual film camera. OMFG!
Why would you do that if canon makes flashes which expose for you?
On top of that, I still use manual flash, when necessary. The end-result is not the only aspect of photography. I happen to enjoy the PROCESS of making a photograph. Add to that the limitations of 24 shots on a roll vs. a 32GB card and chimping. When shooting film, I am REQUIRED to think of everything BEFORE I press the shutter-button. Framing, focal length, lighting DOF, background - all of it. There is no spray-n-pray with a manual film camera. It takes me (and lots of others) back to the essentials of photography.
Yes. But you can think about the same things in digital. And you just shoot 24 frames as well - it doesn't matter if you have a big card.
I already own the best APS-c body, the best full-frame body and the best manual film body I can get, for me. Sure, there are bodies in each category with more bells & whistles than the ones I use. I chose the best products for me. I allow others to do the same. If you are using a 1Dx, and that works for you, I'm happy for you. I am equally happy for you if you are using an XS and the kit lens, or anything in between.
You don't seem to be very happy with the OP wanting reasons to get a new camera. Clearly he'd prefer the mkIII. I don't see the happiness, with all this talk of film and everything manual.
