Digic 4+ !?!?

 :-\ Can really anyone explain?

I think it is not even economically rational to produce a Processor Unit for IMO only this body... I know that different bodies have different numbers and yet the marketing shouldn't let something like that happen if it is really a new processor.

Maybe they had lots of Digic 4+ chips left over from cameras that weren't produced due to declining demand, and if it's sufficient to do the job, it's more economical to use the chips than to discard them...
EOS 1D X, EOS M2, lots of lenses
