    I’ll be waiting on the specs of the Mark II. I am happy with what the D5 is bringing. Viva la Nikon!

  • It’s coming for sure and I can confirm that it will have cfast. Not sure if it will be 1 and 1 or just go all out cfast though? I suspect it might be dual.

    Funny that it’s flagship “still” camera but everybody waits for its “video” specifications! Canon is in a tough position, they have to protect their cinema cameras, and at the same time, show the market its $6-7k camera is not inferior to Sony’s $3k bodies. Their 1DC is becoming Nikon’s Df (yea I feel the irony), iterating it is a problem, and discounting it is another problem. If I was their product manager I would convert the 1DC to a video centric mirrorless camera, ASAP.

      You mean like the C300? Evidently Canon is two generations ahead of you.

      • Eric Calabros

        I mean A7 style of mirrorless.

      Or they can advertise 4k without implementing it a usable way like Nikon did for the D5. Most people wants 4k to not use it anyway.

      Comparing a Sony body with a 1dx camera is like comparing a Ferrari to an Abrams tank.

      there is no point in comparing them 5d, d800 sure.
      Sony has nothing in the market segment the d5 and 1dx sit.

        It has a much faster framerate, amazing af, and is built like a tank. What else does it have over the Sony cameras? For a lot of ppl framerate and af speed aren’t the end all be all. But for a segment it truly is. Like sports.

        • Jeffry De Meyer

          You get those bodies when you need to get the shot and you don’t know in what conditions you will be shooting.

          if you don’t need those deep buffers blazing fast AF speeds batteries that can run a tesla and the tank like built you are better of spending less on something else

        Yeah, the Sony is Saddam’s Ferrari being run over by an Abrams after an engine fire.

  • Lubos

    would be interesting to know what storage cards is going to be?

      cf fast and cf.

    Sony vs Canon is like Smart vs AMG
