I think you're living in a fantasy land if you think there will be a 1DX replacement anytime in the next three years, if ever. I'm on record that it's the last top end, professional, conventional DSLR Canon will ever produce. To the extent it is upgraded, that will happen through code -- firmware.

The 1DX is so advanced at this point there is little they could realistically improve upon. What can they possibly offer that will induce high-end stills shooters to dump their $7K camera for a new $9K camera? Combine that with quickly changing technologies, and the industry is simply going in another direction altogether. Five years from now the 1DX will still be the top still camera with video capability.

The future will be video cameras with stills capability. A whole different world is emerging.

Speaking strictly as an enthusiast who does not earn a dime from my camera, the 1Dx will be the last FF camera I purchase (barring theft or some other catastrophic loss). 

For stills (subjects in motion, landscape, low light), I am so pleased with the range of pictures I can take.  I can't see myself ever needing a reason to upgrade to another DSLR, even if said camera is a mkII!

Bravo Canon!

Well they could start by giving it the MP of one of the cameras it is supposed to have replaced, or even, as has always been the case previously, give it a slight bump, 26mp sounds sweet to me. Then:-
  • Improve DR
  • Improve low iso performance
  • Add ever more to high iso performance, some will never have enough
  • Use dual pixel technology
  • Build in WiFi, who doesnt use it now in a pro environment?
  • Build in GPS, it is a $2 chip not a $400 addon
  • Build in RT Speedlite transmitter, it won't happen but boy it would be nice to shoot with a "clean" camera every now and again
  • The transmisive focus screen could give a lot more info
  • Make it lighter

To name just my most important top few.

You can go on record all you like, play King Kanute, the next 1D is comming and it is due to announce this year, the market that buys these cameras in bulk needs to buy new cameras, it is just a product cycle, they will be using them at the Olympics and World Cup, just like they always do. We will start to see blurred pictures of mystery bodies, I'd be taking pictures of the remote controlled cameras at the major venues to see what is comming later this year or at the latest early next year.
Too often we lose sight of the fact that photography is about capturing light, if we have the ability to take control of that light then we grow exponentially as photographers. More often than not the image is not about lens speed, sensor size, DR, MP's or AF, it is about the light.

+1 !!  I'll go on record right now and say that I plan to buy the replacement to the 1DX, even if it doesn't come out until white dwarf stars become black dwarf stars...quintillions of years from now!!  Things will be darker then, so the improved low light ability will be appreciated!

These are exciting times for photography. I think we'll see a new 1D body in the very near future but for right now I just weeks from getting that 1DX. Does anyone have the link to the mysterious taped up Canon body attached to a 400 2.8 glass in the winter games? I'd love to see it... just curious.  :) :D ;)
Cheers

Best camera I have ever used. I really wondered if having a 5Diii was going to set me up for a less excited feeling. Not the case. While both cameras seem to give me same photo quality, there is no doubt AI Servo is a MONSTER on the 1DX. 12 FPS where 10 out of 12 frames are sharp, wow!

Too many features to name but I wish my 5Diii could save settings to the card. Biggest complaint against the 5diii now. ;)

Hello Dude,
Wow you have both? Did you get a chance to put the DX through its paces in low light shooting yet?

Yes I do. Very fortunate. I have put it through a high school basketball game so I will allow that to qualify as poor light albeit not a dark setting.

Autofocus is amazing. Quality of images seen from my 5Diii and 1DX are very similar. A little less noise on the 1DX files but nothing I would classify as amazing.

Hi Dude,
Thank you for the input... I usually shoot concerts in small dark venues. My 5D Mark II hunts for a focal point and I end up missing the shot I want  >:(  I know I'm speaking to the choir. I wish you all the best with your cameras. :) :) :) :)

I recently rented a 1DX for an event (outdoor pond hockey tournament in single digit temperatures), as I've been dying to try it one.  It was even more impressive than I had expected.  I'm used to my 7d and 5d3, and this just completely blew them away.  At that price, I guess it should.  I'm looking forward to seeing what the 1DX replacement is, only because I want a discounted 1DX ;-)

1) the autofocus, once I figured it out, was spot on
2) controls were awesome, right where they should be and very intuitive
3) it felt "lighter" than my 7d with grip (was it?)
4) stunning image quality

It truly "hurt" when I had to send it back.

P.S. big shout out to the folks at lensrentals.com - it was my first rental from them - fantastic service and I'll definitely use them again

I played with a 1DX and it was impressive. It really is a good jump from the 5DIII in almost every way. Except for image quality at most ISO levels. Though, I could only justify one if most of my income came from photography. Not yet.   ;)
