Canon EOS-1D X Mark III camera to be announced in early February. A late Merry Christmas present to myself

Canon announced the development of the EOS-1D X Mark III camera on October 24, 2019. I expect the official announcement to come before the CP+ trade show in February, 2020 and delivery to commence by around early April. I am ready to place my order and expect an invitation to preview the camera some time in early 2020. It's like a late Christmas present to myself. Happy Holidays to all my readers and all the best for 2020.

 I have been an EOS-1 user since the line was introduced in 1989. The latest and possibly last EOS-1D X Mark III DSLR body may have the following specs :
