Trick Or Treat - Canon EOS-1DX vs EOS-1DX2

The current EOS-1D X camera has been my pick as the best full frame DSLR camera for sports and wildlife photography three years in a row. According to the latest information I have received, the long awaited EOS-1D X Mark II model will most probably be equipped with 4K video. The expected delivery date will be end of Q1, 2016. Should one wait for the new model or buy the current camera? I expect the replacement model to be priced just below $7,000.

Of course, not everyone needs and wants the latest and greatest equipment. The current EOS-1D X is an excellent camera and during Halloween, the factory refurbished camera is selling for $3,603 at the Canon Store (save 15% by using coupon code JACKOLANTERN when checking out) and comes with one year warranty from Canon.

As my readers know, I do not accept any ads or commission from any company and I am NOT endorsing the Canon Store but before you recoil at buying refurbished equipment, read my earlier post on buying and selling used gear. This is more of a treat than a trick for those who want to trade up to the top-of-the-line full frame camera. You can see my equipment bag and works on
