Canon ME20F-SH Ships In December In USA, Sells At $19,900 (will Be Available In Europe February 2016)

Thanks for the tip. I always wrote that the Canon ME20F-SH is selling for $30,000, but I was wrong. It’s on sale at $19,999 at B&H Photo.

A Canon Watch reader asked a German retailer about when the  Canon ME20F-SH will likely be available in Germany: around February 2016.

Canon EOS-1D X Mark II to be announced in 2016?

Canon EOS-1D X Mark II To Be Announced In 2016?

After a lot of rumors suggesting the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II would be announced before end of 2015, now an announcement in 2016 is murmured.

Latest EOS-1D X rumor has it that we will see the Canon EOS-1D X not before April 2016. Until now April 2016 has always been traded as the announcement date for the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV. Will the EOS 5D Mark IV announcement be postponed to Photokina 2016 (that’s in September 2016)? The EOS-1D X Mark II is still rumored to feature 4K video.

Take everything with a grain of salt, there are no really reliable Canon rumors around for the time being.
