Canon EOS-1D X “f/8″ to be Added? [CR1]

Canon EOS-1D X “f/8″ to be Added? [CR1]

Could it be?
I have received two random emails saying that “f/8″ autofocus in the 1D X will be added to the final firmware for the camera.

By f/8, I mean the ability to have autofocus when the widest aperture of a lens is f/8. i.e.  a 500 f/4L IS with a 2X teleconverter. Which is 1000mm f/8.

We had heard previously that the perceived shortcomings in the 1D X could be fixed in firmware.

Canon EOS-1D X Delayed?

Canon EOS-1D X Delayed?

April 2012 Release?
From Calumet in the UK, comes word that the Canon EOS-1D X may not be shipping until April. I had heard that previously, and it’s not overly shocking.

No word on why the camera may be delayed.

Canon EOS-1D X Battery Issues?

Canon EOS-1D X Battery Issues?

Why the delay?
It’s been noted that an official weight for the new Canon EOS-1D X has yet to be finalized, I’m told the battery is the reason for this. It was suggested they’re having “serious” issues with the new battery.

Firmware
Another person has come forward and said Canon is working feverishly on firmware feature changes and updates to the EOS-1D X. The good news is Canon will do whatever it takes to get the camera to market in March as previously announced.

Pricing Change?
I’m told the $6800 suggested price tag for the EOS-1D X isn’t written in stone.
