Overnight we have received both some information on the release of the 1DX Mark III, and a new interesting image. I apologize for the low quality of the image, I removed the photographer from the image to protect their identity, but what we are seeing in this camera, is certainly not any 1DX series camera I’ve seen (and it looks really cool I might add). Is this simply a prototype or is Canon thinking of doing something radical for the 1 series lineup and giving it different looks?
I looked at image given to CR by a source and didn’t think it was a Mark II. Apparently it was! I make mistakes at times.
Another source mentioned to us that the 1DX Mark III will be available for inspection at a major dealer in Australia in February, with a release in April. This would have Canon doing an official announcement sometime in February, before CP+. Considering this is the major tradeshow in Japan, and the Olympics are being held later on in 2020 in Japan, this seems like a very likely scenario.
