Not that we had any doubts left that Canon would announce new gear on February…
A new rumor suggests the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II has come out of pre-production. It’s said that the EOS-1D X Mark II is already actively used by photographers around the world, for the latest tests and to produce marketing material.
No specs have been leaked so far. A 24MP sensor is rumored, and a burst rate of 14 fps. Moreover, some bits emerged about a new AF system (every new camera is always rumored to have a new AF system) and some vague new viewfinder technology.
The Canon EOS-1D X Mark II is expected to be announced in 2015, the question is when. Stay tuned for more.
