Canon EOS-1D X Mark II to be Announced in February/March, Shipping in April

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 AmazonB&HAdorama), 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
