12fps: Tons of people are worrying about Dynamic Range, and high ISO image performance, since Canon makes very little mention of sensor advancements, but they at least put out enough to remind us, that Mk2 1DX will have excellent DR, and even their testers have all been impressed, especially remarks on their high ISO performance will be significant compared to last 2 generations, which is 1DX, 1D4. So, whats the worry, plus they stepped up the Autofocus, and even the buffer have improved, and they are now using CFAST, and they have incorporated 4K at an acceptable 60P. Basically, they loaded as much as they could on it. None of these are even possible in 1D3, and 1D4. The 1DX is qutie brilliant already, as for MK2, they didn't dissappoint.

OMG, you are still here... Whats your problem? Nikon has been ahead ever since the D3.... Its a fact. Canon starts closing the gap back when they introduce the 1D4. I own it, then they got mostly everything back on 1DX. 1DX basically matches Nikon in image quality all the way, until it gets very dark, D4 takes over at low light photography, but I don't usually shoot handheld that low, I use tripod, so who cares, still great improvements. There are reviews citing Nikon D4 is better from certain ISO range, but Canon are better on other areas, but video reviews done by true users, including real pros, basically give Nikon the edge especially at high ISO shooting, and when light start dropping off, Nikon takes over. I wish 1DX can outshine the D4 in low light, but reality is 1DX still a bit behind, so lets hope MK2 will put Canon back to the top of everything. I am trying to order one now... So Good Night..

What opinions do I really change.... Why do u have to argue like barking like a dog, as if you are so technically superior, maybe you should be working in Japan, inside their labs. Its actual usage experience, and majorrity of reviews basically backs it. Since I am not a tester, I read. I have 1DX, 1D4, and 5DS, also uses 1D3. I have played around D3, and D4s, but the Nikons weren't mine. Nikon is known for low light photography, they can lock on to subjects easier, plus the results on your screen blown up in full resolution clearly shown the end results are better products. Why do you have to argue, if you like Canon, stick with them, and if you like Nikon, stick with them. I am a EOS user, and I am more than happy with current 1DX, and couldn't wait to get my hands on the MK2.

@vscd Even if both of us have tested it, we may not get the same results.... I am a 1DX user, and the D4s was from another user who happens to have it with him on use, and we play around with it, that was a long time ago.

1DX has more noise for high ISO shooting, but image qualities pretty impressive but not night takes, have to hand the crown to Nikon, not only their focusing is good, the shots are pretty impressive, while mine have a lot more noise.

Which part is mistaken... Night time shooting in general, is not Canon big strength, they can do it, but autofocus may need to be adjusted, Nikon seems to lock on just fine. Now, although I have tried it, and hardly uses it, there are reviews online also stated that Nikon is quite good at this, even video reviews. I do remember some of those night shots, I was able to get with my 1DX shooting at hand held, the AF seems to miss quite a bit. The end results, based on shooting equivalent lens on both systems, the Nikon also seems to be a lot better in terms of end-products, both systems shooting wide open 2.8, at same shutter speeds. 1DX images very noisy, pretty much only usable on the web, the D4s, much more acceptable.

Low light is focusing, especially when the light start dropping, especially for evening shots. Lets say 8 PM, you subject is running but your are now dealing with night time shooting, Nikon can focus at very low light, with no issues, just as people usually shoot at daytime in handheld configuration. They will lock on the subject pretty good, thats going to be a bit of struggle on 1DX.

@VSCD R U the one who sends the DXO page, then u know Nikons have better DXO than 1DX right. Whats the issue.... I don't know what u r getting at? First, Canon press release on MK2 basically says excellent DR, and better ISO performance even at 8000, it will look better than 800, in 2 generations ago, I didn't come up with it.

Obvioiusly as a 1DX user, guys like me will want to be reassure that MK2 will be better, and Canon announcements have said that. Thats it.

This is not 5DS, and they have to say their DR, and ISO performance is equivalent to 5D2 or 7D, so its a relieve.

We all know Nikon flagships are tough to beat, but as 1DX users, at the minimum of what we are expecting did not dissappoint, that is nothing to prove that MK2 will be better than D5, but its better than 1DX

Also DXO already proves that the best Canon sensor happens to be 5DS, 1DX got 82, 5DS, a 87? That means Nikon is ahead in sensors, especially D800, and their flagships. Canon on the other hand, not grim, because if 5DS has a higher score, meaning 5DS indeed is using an improved sensor than a 1DX, they didn't use the 1DX sensor and cram pixels on it. So, the worst we can get on Mk2, is the same 5DS sensor, with details trim down to 20MP.. Even if that was what we are getting, I wouldn't be that pixx, but I think the 1DX2 is a better sensor than a 5DS, so I am pretty happy.

I don't quite get who tries to challenge my statements, actually on the mainstream, everyone have been bashing on Canon, after 1D Mark 3 fiasco, the 1D4, quite good, just wouldn't measure up to a D3s, but its APS-H, 1DX probably pretty awesome, and many knew Canon is back, with great feature sets too. I love it, until mine no longer can take my abuse at the end of last year, but in low light focusing, and image quality, it seems like Nikon still have an edge, DR, Nikon wins hands down, 1DX not bad at all, even I dial up the shadows using Aperture, quite good, but Nikon will smoke it. However, in general purpose up to low light, 1DX pretty much matches up in image quality.

There are many testers that I watch in video which clearly show D4 still has better low light than 1D, even the 1DX. The D3 started this, & Canon has been playing catch up, if u find somewhere that says no, it will be even better. I don't know any D4 shooters, but I knew 3 D3 guys, they are addicted to D3 and D3S, because its more than good enough.

As for low light, Nikon seems to have an edge especially on their D4 still, especially in extreme low light, they can focus better and take better pictures.

After seeing some of those people, who seem to be so dissappointed, I couldn't help myself by adding this to my 1D Dream List. I have a dream

250 MP - Full Frame
Capable of capturing a UFO flying at a distance of 18km
Video Footage - 30 times of resolution of 4K with extreme low light of illumination of 0.0005lux

Come on Canon, make it happen....

Shiranai: I don't know, currently I'm starting to get a little disappointed with Canon. Didn't they say they are about to announce something groundbreaking?
But now a top of the line camera which features 61 focus points all cluttered around in the middle, OPTIONAL Wi-Fi and just 20 MP? Thats a little ridiculous compared to their 5DS models. But then again it remains to be seen how it behaves in high ISO, cause the 5DSes were kinda bad compared to 5D3 and 6D.

So how about Nikon, are the D5 30 Megapixels?. Seems like you are very unhappy, then jump to other camps, & then you find out you may have your dream sensors, but can't snap like 1DX and D5, because they are mirrorless, or your lens selections are limited or worse, not quite as prime as you want. The 1DX II and D5 are about as much as you can get from a full framer point of view, or if you don't mind buying F1.X lens on a 5DS, only to avoid hitting ISO 3200 ceiling (it can go up to 6400, but I will have to c a eye doctor) if I really want to approve that take.

I fully understand after seeing they announce a 5DS, and Westfall seems to have his lip delibrately kept shut, but that was a 50 megadiculous camera. High ISO, and good DR, will be replaced by details.

I own a 5DS, and wouldn't leave home without an F1.x series lens thanks to megadiculous sensor, but MK2X announcement are much different, it will have no aftershock effects.

The D5 are in the same territory in resolutions, and in functionality, but besides the 61AF, which looks kind of questionble, but Canon added quite a bit of new stuffs to support this AF, so AF for sure have been improved, so thats ok.

As for the sensor, if you expect a D5 beater, its unlikely, but it looks like Canon improves the DR, and the assurance of high ISO performances from their testers have been more than sufficient to calm down even the most demanding users.

Relax, the 5DS aftershock is gone, the MK2X, seems to have address the most demanding users.

Lets be honest, in order to beat Nikon Flagships in stills, it will be mighty difficult especially in high ISO performances, what I expected to see is the gradual improvements in closing the gap. The same is the low light performance, Nikon D4 Series have been unbeatable, I don't think MK 2 will be able to change the game, but expect Canon will put whatever needed to make MK2 a more complete package.

Educate me a little please.. Why is this launch receive so much negative comments? Is it just because of the price, or its non 4K.. They are pitching this product into low light, which should be great... May be someone can figure out with their scientific formula, how acceptable will this product be if they up the pixels into 4K, will it be equivalent to its competitors in performance? I think that is most important..

Sad Joe: When using the EF-S / EF adaptor on the camera is there any additional crop factor ? Been told there isn't which would really suit me fine - anyone know for sure ?

Good question... But I don't think there will be any additional crop penalties.. Even if there are, it won't be too much. may be 1.7X. STM lens tends to focus on normal shots, not fast action stuff, so the arrangement is different, but if you have EF-S lens, no need to bother, unless noise bothers you.

Well it seems like, many people are demanding these mirrorless cam will have to do everything. I wouldn't disagree on that but even this newer M can do that, I simply wouldn't even look at it. Reason is simple, if you r a guy, we usually have larger hands, and the grips and the controls are key priorities. How r u going to shoot when you finger covers up 3 buttons. The M is nice, it's definitely more man but not man enough for me.

12fps: Well. Canon waits for their competitors to put out EVIL, instead of rushing out a new standard. The competitors all have their all mounting system. 4/3, APS C, Nikon V1.. At the end, the one that wins out is the best mount, with compatibility of today's legacy system... The larger sensor, of course the better, but the least sexiest. The smaller sensor allows zoom shooters to enjoy higher crop factor, while punishing the wide angle shooter with fewer alternatives. Since only Canon & Nikon are really great at sensitives at high ISO, I presume they will lead the mirror-less system as time goes, but Canon uses larger sensor, that will even give it more of a edge. For guys like me, I won't buy one, whatever mirror-less on the market are no comparison with today's APS-H, Full Frame, or offer the flexibility of pro-APS-C (e.g EOS 7D). So, it is exciting, but I think Canon G1X will satisfy this crowd for casual and wide-angle shooters. 1D/5D/D3 users no worries. EVIL not yet there yet.

Ageha.... It is funny.. Whenever you go to any shop, these 2 brands stand out by a significant margin, because they are too awesome... Of course 4/3 is nice, but far from awesome..
