No EOS-1D X Replacement in 2014 [CR2]

No EOS-1D X Replacement in 2014 [CR2]

There’s been some talk about an EOS-1D X replacement some time in 2014, and it has been discussed even more with the apparent price drop on the camera through grey market retailers.

I have it from a good source that the EOS-1D X won’t be replaced in 2014, but should see an update in 2015. This is a pretty safe bet, especially judging by the EOS 7D Mark II features. That brand new 65 point AF system should be making its way to the EOS 5D Mark IV and EOS-1D X Mark II within the next 12-18 months.

EOS-1D X & EOS 5D Mark III Replacements in 2015 [CR1]

EOS-1D X & EOS 5D Mark III Replacements in 2015 [CR1]

Northlight has posted a bit of a roadmap for the pro level cameras from Canon. They’ve been told that the EOS-1D X Mark II would come first, with a potential announcement coming in very late 2014. The EOS 5D Mark III would follow afterwards. Both cameras will most likely benefit from the new sensor technology we’ll see in the upcoming EOS 7D replacement.

CR’s Take
If the technology in the EOS 7D replacement is as great as people are claiming it to be (we don’t yet know what it is), then it would make sense to replace the other flagship models in the lineup fairly quickly. The EOS 5D Mark III was arrived in March of 2012, and the EOS-1D X soon after in June of 2012. A three year cycle for each seems doable, even if the EOS 7D will have taken nearly 5 years to replace.
