I have just returned from my wildlife photo tour in Costa Rica. Trying to take care of the day to day business before having to leave for another tour in India next week. This will leave me little time to process the photos from Costa Rica or write my blog.
Just a quick note to let my readers know the demand for the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II is phenomenal. It is really not a surprise since the camera is a big improvement over the original EOS-1D X and sells for $900 less. Canon is filling the orders from their ambassadors and photographers who were involved in their pre-production test trials first. The demand for professional Canon cameras in Asia is also doing well. The camera shipping schedule may slip about one week in the United States due to the heavy demand but should commence around late April or very early May. Hope you have put in your pre-order in February?
Here are some full sized sample images from the EOS-1D X Mark II. After I take delivery of the camera in April/May, I will be embarking on a few wildlife photography shoots from the high Arctic to the southern tip of Africa and places in between. Very anxious to test the new camera under real world conditions and write a review on it. You can see my works on MichaelDanielHo.com
