The EOS-1D X Mark II is the latest flagship body from Canon, boasting a 20.2MP CMOS sensor, 14 fps continuous viewfinder shooting and a new 61-point autofocus system. Built like a tank, the 1DX II is as pro-level as pro-level bodies come.

To get some basic impressions of its AF performance and image quality we brought it out to Evergreen Motocross Park in Monroe, Washington to photograph an all-day practice. While this gallery represents only our initial samples with the camera, we will be adding to it frequently in the coming days and weeks. Also, check back later in the week for an in-depth article about the experience of shooting these samples alongside the Nikon D5.

Note: All of the images in the gallery were processed using Adobe Photoshop CC with adjustments made mainly to exposure parameters and saturation only.  All images were edited using the Camera Standard profile.
