As you know Sony introduced the a9 II ($4,498 Pre-Order Now), which adds a host of features for the working professional, along with a refined design largely borrowed from the a7R IV. Here’s what’s new on Sony a9 II camera. On the other, Nikon D6 development has been announced in September and the D6 is scheduled for early 2020.
Now the third competitor, Canon is also rumored to be working on high-end DSLR before the Tokyo Olympics 2020. Here are the first specifications of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III. The current Canon EOS-1D X Mark II model is now $500 off at Adorama, Amazon and B&H.

- It’s likely the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III will shoot 6K video without a crop.
- Dual CFExpress cards are in the prototype models and will likely make it to the production version.
- There will be a “significant jump in resolution for an EOS-1 series camera”. The EOS-1D X was 18.1mp and the EOS-1D X Mark II came in at 20.2mp. So I guess anything over a 2mp bump could be considered “significant” to some.
- New DIGIC processor. Canon doesn’t usually introduce a new DIGIC processor in the EOS-1D series, but that will apparently change this time.
- IBIS is in prototype cameras (click here for more)
