The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III will be announced on Monday, and we are just posting a summary of the known features and specifications for the new camera. There are still some questions to be answered, specifically what processors the camera is going to use. We suspect the camera will have at least dual DIGIC 9 processors. The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III is going to need a lot of processing power to match its RAW video and buffer specifications.
Will it have DPAF?
Yes, it will, with a caveat. You will get DPAF in 1080p and 4K at 23p/24p/30p. You will not get DPAF in 4K 50p/60p or RAW video shooting.

Hmmm.... I do not think Canon would dare to make such an mini-evolution of their flag-ship. Not in an Olymic year in Japan. Alkso keep in mind the 24MP of the A9....
Cannot believe this are the final specs.
Where do they have these specs? Maybe someone wrot older specs into "specs sheets" as an placeholder

First reaction: Oh, come on Canon! Why? What's up with the mediocre spec advancements for another $5,500?

10 minutes later after considering all options: Well, I can't switch systems and lenses after spending all that money, and Canon did give me a few more fps and more focal points in live-view than the previous model, so...


But then yet, the real specs haven't been released yet, so there is still hope!....maybe.
