I would add to the above comments that I truly love using the 10X liveview on the 1Dx. It is so much better for MF lenses than Nikon's LV implementation. Loving everything about my decision to switch brands.

Does Nikon not have 10x live view?

You can zoom in to the focus point if I remember correctly. It just wasn't as clear for critical focus like the 1Dx and 5D MarkIII.

Is it ridiculous for a amateur to buy a 1Dx?

Depends on how "amateur" we're talking. If this would be their first DSLR I'm not sure that would be the best use of their funds. Probably money better spent on learning the craft a little. However, I'm sure several have started with a pro body as their first DSLR. I didn't and looking back I'm glad because I wasn't ready for it. I'm self-taught and I think a big part of my understanding involved getting creative to get the shot I wanted; even when my camera was a little limited in functions the more expensive models had at the time.

Not in my opinion.

If you can afford it and it makes you happy you should buy what you want.

Would it be overkill for snapshots of little Sally's birthday parties? Probably, but so what? :D

And if you are an amateur with designs on building your skills or going pro then why not save the money on "starter" bodies and go straight for the top?

What Eric has said.

More than one or two contributing to this thread not earning from their photography (as far as I know) which would make them amateurs in my book. Certainly not ridiculous to want the best equipment in your chosen hobby

I also agreee that starting with any camera body including a pro one is not wrong idea, many many of people i met they all upgraded to pro sooner or later, just they didn't have money before to afford a pro body, so to me it is like, if you have enough money to get a pro body then why not? it is just a matter of time when you get used to that pro body then you will not be any longer an amateur.

Not at all! No more so than for someone who isn't a professional driver to buy a nice car!

Life is too short to spend it itching; sometimes you need a good scratch; it feel soooo good ;-)a

Your output has been anything but amateur though John.
