By CanonUSA on YouTube. 8K is a technology Canon is investing a lot. I had a rumor from a very reliable source saying 8K will come on Canon EOS Cinema line in 2016, and on a Canon DSLR in 2017.
The announcement of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II is a matter of few months. Still there are very little reliable specs around. A sensor with 22MP is rumored, and it is likely that this rumor hits the mark.
Stay tuned for more information, in the meantime check earlier EOS-1D X Mark II rumors.[via Canon Rumors]

A long awaited super-zoom lens for the EOS M system with better optics might soon be reality. Canon filed a patent for a EF-M 55-300mm f/4.5-6.3 DO IS lens, featuring diffractive optics and image stabilisation. Canon already has a telephoto lens for the EOS M, the Canon EF-M 55-200mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM
Such a lens would be a welcome addition to the small lens line-up currently available for the EOS M system. Canon filed other patents for telephoto lenses for the EOS-M system. However, this patent might refer to a a product that could hit the market. If it does, then the price is the what I would like to know first. Optics with DO elements are usually not cheap.

Latest tidbits about the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II suggest the camera will be announced in February or March and start to go to sale in April 2016. Most likely the EOS-1D X Mark II will be announced for CP+ in February. The rumored price is $5,999.
Nikon just announced the D5, the direct competitor for the EOS-1D X Mark II, so it is likely Canon won’t waste much time before releasing the EOS-1D X Mark II. The Nikon D5 has 4K video, it’s now a safe bet to say that the EOS-1D X Mark II will also feature it.
