According to latest Canon Rumors, the flagship 1D X Mark II DSLR camera will feature a sensor having 15 stops of dynamic range.

Previously it was rumored to have around 14+ stops of dynamic range but now rumor mill claims 15+ stops of dynamic range for the new Canon 1D X Mark II with the new 22-megapixel image sensor.
