Canon EOS-1D Camera Announcement Coming in 2014
Nikon already has the 36.3 mega pixel, D800 camera on the market for a while now. They plan to introduce the new mega pixel D4X, a successor the their top-of-the-line D4 camera next year, perhaps in time for the 2014 Winter Olympics.
Canon may be ready to react and finally release their own mega pixel camera. The Winter Olympics and World Cup are two big sporting events that will highlight Canon's technological prowess in state of the art photography and the EOS-1D Mega Pixel Camera will be the premier announcement event for them. This camera may be the replacement to the retired EOS-1Ds Mk III and could be released after the sporting events (expect to see prototypes at the games), perhaps around the Photokina Show in September 2014, with delivery commencing in late 2014 or early 2015. The new EOS-1 camera's announcement may be accompanied by one or two new 'L' lenses as well.
Canon is mindful of their misstep last time when they announced their EOS-1D X, only to be eclipsed by Nikon's D4 and D800 because they cannot get their shipments into stores until way after the Nikon cameras went on sale. Keep checking back for the latest information and updates.
