Bryan at The-Digital-Picture has completed his review of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II, and came away impressed by the host of improvements over its predecessor.
My expectation that the 1D X II was going to be worth the upgrade from the 1D X was very high. That I sold my 1D X at 1D X II announcement time made clear my confidence that this would the best sports/action camera ever. I have no regrets – the 1D X II exceeded my expectations. To me, it was worth the upgrade.
The 1D X Mark II is directly targeted at professional use where speed, reliability and bringing home the best possible image are important. This use includes sports, wildlife, fast action, reportage, weddings, events, media and wire service use in the toughest environments. If getting the shot matters, this is the camera I want in my hands. That this camera is so fun to use makes getting that all-important shot a great all-around experience. Read the full review
I won’t be putting the camera through any serious work until next month in Africa, but I expect to experience the same great things that Bryan has using the camera.
The EOS-1D X Mark II has been somewhat hard to come by, but at the moment it appears that the Canon Store has stock of the premium kit.
