The Nikon D4s Mouse That Roared

Nikon announced at the CES 2014 the D4s camera is coming. This is probably the worst kept 'secret' in photography news but the 'announcement' has no specs with it, just hype to cash in on the world's media attention.

The Canon EOS-1D X Firmware 2.0.3 was released yesterday and available for immediate download. This is a major upgrade and will make the camera even better. My readers know I have picked the EOS-1D X as the best, full frame wildlife camera two years in a row. With this new Firmware upgrade, the camera will hold its own against the Nikon D4S upon its release later this year, until the Canon replacement comes out in 2015.

In addition, Canon plans to make a big splash this year, most probably around the World Cup, starting in June. This month long event will give Canon worldwide attention and they plan to announce one or two advanced DSLRs, including the replacement to the EOS-7D, some exciting EOS Cinema products and a few EF lenses. This summer should be very exciting and I am eager to place my pre-orders.
