There’s not much being said about the EOS-1D X Mark II at the moment, the leaks at Canon are for the moment relatively well plugged (Though we’re trying to confirm a few things we’ve been told).
A very solid source let us know that the EOS-1D X Mark II will be in our hands no later than April 2016, but that Canon has yet to finalize an announcement date. So there’s no need to worry that this is going to be a Photokina 2016 product.
The million dollar question is how the EOS 5D Mark IV will play in all of this, could that be a Photokina product? Is it possible that Canon could wait another year to announce, what will surely be the most popular Canon photographic product since the EOS 5D Mark III was announced in 2012? There has been some insight on this, but very little can be confirmed at this time.
The only thing that is confirmed for the EOS-1D X Mark II is that it will shoot 4K video and that there will not be a direct follow-up to the EOS-1D C.
More to come…
