In everyone's opinion, what are the chances of a high end 1DX mark II or another top of the line DSLR being available next year? The reason why I ask is because I am close to spending $4,000 on the new 5K iMac if a new camera won't be available until 2016. However, if we are talking early to mid 2015, then I might hold off on a new computer so I can get the camera instead.
There's a 100% chance that the 1DX or 5D3 will be updated next year.
If Dilbert is wrong, he will refund in double the consulting fee you paid him.
1Dx is strongly positioned vs the D4s. Unless Canon wants to leap frog Nikon, I don't expect to see an update. If Nikon introduces a D5 then perhaps, though Canon seems to be slow to introduce new items recently. I think the got badly burnt when the rushed the 1D M3 to market with autofocus issues.
5DM3 is long in the tooth but sells well. They are milking it. Canon may layer new camera on top of 5D M3 (dare I call it a 3D or 4D) and collect $ from all of us.
Not sure if they will do any of this - I don't have a crystal ball (or at least one that works) and I am not a Canon insider.
Likely to see / hear about something next year but hard to tell what (or when).
