I seems like great specs, but how is a bear or mountain lion going to operate this camera.  If you are making a camera for wildlife you've got to think ergonomics.

I have one of these but am not happy about the colour. In Africa on safari I kept losing it when I put it down!  :P
I suggest you get another one.... you could loose it in my yard....

I am holding out for the Mark 2 version which comes with scent spraying to attract animals. It also has the ability to "spray skunk"... a usefull feature when you are attacked by lions, tigers, polar bears, and irate soccer moms...

No 4k? It's useless.

fuckin this... but still camouflage is a great addition.
I already have mine in pre-order @ BH

Do you think I have to sell my 1D X now before it becomes obsolete?

Haha, very funny canon rumors.. I know i will never visit this site again. 90% of rumors here are off anyway and once you make me excited for a new 1D camera it's a joke..

Bye bye

I rang Canon at Lake Success and asked them "When the 1D W would be available".
The girl on the phone said she had never heard of it.
Then I said "Ha ha, April fools"
I cant believe they fell for it.

I expected a false 7D mkii rumor for April fools.  That would have really gotten a rise out of the community.
