Alongside the Canon EOS 6D Mark II and Canon EOS Rebel SL2/200D/X8, Canon will finally announce the follow-up to the PC-E1!

While we have no specifications, it’s safe to say that the PC-E2 will also omit 4K and dual SD card slots.

Full disclosure: I had no idea the PC-E1 existed.

...and who says Canon doesn't listen to their customers?!

Never knew about PC-E1 either.  This actually does look semi-useful, but (in typical Canon fashion) slightly overpriced.

From the picture, I could not identify what it is. But retailer had a photo. It's a compact battery pack for flash. Can't say I need one. The turbo battery packs work well.

Edit:  I stand corrected, it's a cloth wrap, not a battery pack. I still don't need one.

You're thinking of the CP-E1/2/3/4, this is the PC-E1/2.  For some reason, the order of the letters in the model identifier matter, just a bit.   ;)

  vs 

CP = Compact (battery) Pack, PC = Protecting Cloth.

But still...a MkII version?!?!?   ;D

No 4K? Canon is doomed.
But OTOH there's a 5D mkIV in it, so 4K included... ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Wonderful!  A diaper for my camera.  I suppose the MkII version also comes in white and silver? ;)

+1

Will the MkII version be big enough to protect my 1D X and 600/4?  If not, I'm switching to Nikon.

EDIT:  Damn, I just checked, and Nikon doesn't even offer a protective cloth.  Pathetic.  I guess I'll have to go with Sony...they're so innovative, I'm sure their protective cloths use Kevlar and have a 14-stop sun protection factor.

The real question is how Canon will  differentiate  artificially limit  nerf the PC-E2 to protect sales of their forthcoming PC-L1, the protective cloth specifically designed for bodies with L-series lenses attached.

They'll save the UV resistant material and extra grippy texture for the PC-D2, of course.
