Canon Japan EOS-1D X The Birth of Entirely new Flagship

The Canon EOS 1D X
The following video is from Canon Japan with english subtitles. It’s a technical marketing piece for the new EOS 1D X. More of what you probably already know, but explains the new technologies in the new flagship well.

All is not great?
There does seem to be some things left out of the EOS 1D X that photographers are worried about. The biggest one I have seen is the omission of f/8 AF sensors. This means that a 500 f/4L IS with a  2X teleconverter wouldn’t have AF at the center point, like the current 1D and 1Ds cameras. I am still waiting for official confirmation from Canon about this issue. Is it a hardware thing? or could it be addressed with software?

High ISO Samples
Unfortunately, they aren’t high resolution high ISO samples.
