Canon EOS-1D X Mark II rumor: more AF points and new viewfinder technology? [CW3]


A new Canon EOS-1D X Mark II rumor surfaced.

The rumor suggests the EOS-1D X Mark II will have “considerably more” AF points than the 61 points featured in the EOS-1D X. Most of these points are said to be cross type. There may be some new viewfinder technology coming with the 1D X Mark II, to “handle all the additional points”. The return of the red AF points in AI Servo mode is speculated.

Might the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II have a display with OLEDs? The rumor suggests such test units are out in the wild, still it is not sure if it will make it into a production model. Ergonomics shouldn’t change that much.

There is still no reliable announcement date to work on. However, it is common opinion that Canon will announce the EOS-1D X Mark II before the EOS 5D Mark IV (expected for Q1 2016), hence the 1DX2 could be announced in 2015.
