The Canon EOS-1D X Mark II flagship full frame DSLR camera is confirmed to be released in April 2016. The previous rumored announcement is in January. But Nikon just announced its flagship Nikon D5 ($6,496.95 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama), so there’s no hope that Canon will announce EOS-1D X Mark II right away. However, the announcement in February/March makes sense, probably at CP+ Show in Japan in February.
And, the price info. The Canon EOS-1D X Mark II is scheduled to be priced at $5999, it may change slightly when it at the time of the announcement, but it will be cheaper than the Nikon D5 ($6,496).
Canon EOS-1D X Mark II Rumored Features:
- Meant to replace both the EOS-1D X and EOS-1D C
- Max video frame rate: 4K @ 60fps, 120fps @ 1080p
- Touch panel for AF point selection (We’re not sure if this means touchscreen or something else)
- Much talked about new sensor technology
- A “learning mode” for AI Servo (This wasn’t explained)
- Completely new autofocus system
- GPS built-in (no mention of Wifi)
- New LCD screen type/technology
