EOS-1 Announcement Q2 2014? [CR1]
« on: November 01, 2013, 08:06:04 AM »
A new pro body
Suggestions of a new EOS-1 body to be announced in Q2 of 2014 have surfaced. No detailed specs have been given for the camera, which shouldn’t be shocking this far out from an unveiling. Before the announcement, the EOS-1D X will receive a price drop and the new EOS-1 body would come at a $2000 premium. One would expect it to have a large megapixel sensor at least.

The camera wouldn’t ship until well into 2014. Apparently this information is being passed around to select “pro” dealers.

A Q2 announcement would fall in line with the World Cup in Brazil as a testing ground.

But do we need it.

Cuz despite owning a H4D50, 1DX and 5D3 I am seriously blown away by what's coming out of the X-Pro1 I just bought.

I might wait until a Pro bodied version of that comes out, with faster AF and better ergonomics (which it will, just when?)

I love the idea of the 1Dx's price dropping :) It's about time!

Could this be Canon's high MP offering?
Could this be Canon's D800 / A7R "competitor" in a $7.000 elephant body?

I bet it will be a very small tweak to the 1DX similar to what was done with t4i > t5i since there was some damage done to the 1DX name with the defect quite a few models shipped with.

Q2 of 2014?  Really?  Same time as the 7D MK2 is rmoured to be outed.  Yet no lens announcements  :(  Just in time for the FIFA World Cup in Brazil, so it might be worth keeing an eye out during the matches for any "new" lenses, like the 200-400 was trialled in anger at the Olympics last year....

Should hopefully bring down the 1DMK4 to a more affordable price, so that might be a viable alternative to the 7D2 if the 7D2 isn't in the shops by August 2014 so I can shoot lots of wildlife.  Fingers crossed  :)

I never realized that 1d series drops in price before a new model is announced. Now I know!

TBH, I actually don't care all that much now.

What we have is good enough for (most of) our needs.

The new EOS-1 body is amazing and a big step over the 1D X. I like it.

the buttons feel a bit strange thought. maybe because of the new weathersealing technology.

It seems that Canon is dropping their "better pixels" argument in favor of "more pixels" then?
