What I find amusing is that the 1Ds X are touted as studio AND landscape cameras

By whom ? Landscape photography hardly registers in the professional photography field, and its dedicated practitioners tend to use larger cameras than 35mm.

From the Canon white paper on the 1Ds III, Overview, page 4:

"The EOS-1Ds Mark III is intended, most obviously, for professional studio photographers and landscape photographers ..."

yet where's the mirror lock-up button

I understand that the one-touch "Live Preview" button locks up the mirror, as on the 1DIII

Personally never bothered me. We have some of the best tools ever.  Always a few quirks.

Best,
Michael

Yeah, I've been using stop-down / mirror lock-up until recently, but you need to nit-pick them to death otherwise they get way too complacent. Fortunately Nikon's doing that for us now ...
