Arrgh, I am saving up for this... :cry:
Would the "1DX Mark III" be coming 1Q 2020 ?

Ah-keong...No one knows but Canon. They are very careful about leaking release dates of any new camera bodies. Your guess is as good as anyone's. I'd sure like to know when the 1DXiii will be released. Like you, I'm saving and waiting. I may even switch over to the Sony a9.

agree. I am chasing the clock to save up and get the mark II before it is superseded :cry:

Looking historically over the past few 1 series releases, Canon has aligned them with the Olympic Games. So it would follow that 2020 will see the next incarnation. Now as to what that will be we can only guess, but I am tipping given said 2020 Olympics are in Japan then Canon will want this release to be memorable (and for all the right reasons).


A coupla bodies and a few lenses

Why care if it's superseded?
I bought a 1D2n after the 1D3 was released. At the time the 1D3 was in limited supply.
The 1D2n which had been $5000 was offered with $750 cash back. The 1D3 was $5800 but would require going on a waiting list.
The 1D2n was proven. As it turned out, there were many unhappy early adopters of the 1D3.
Remove the AF problems of the 1D3 from the equation and I still had no regrets.
Years later I bought a used 1D4 knowing the 1DX would be available in a few months. No regrets with that either.

So I suppose I actually do care a lot if a body is or will be superseded soon as I get a well tested body, I don't get any nasty surprises that early adopters can experience and the price is significantly lower.

1D3 to 1D4 was one of the bigger leaps in performance and features in Canon 1 Series DSLR history. For the rest, a regular upgrade every 2nd model release is what many users choose over upgrading to every new model for not just economics but also an 'if it aint broke don't fix it' philosophy.

Opps, sorry for the misunderstanding.
By superseded, I actually meant "out of stock" or "sold out".

Well I'm back in the 1dx2 camp again having traded my 5D4 in over the weekend.
I'd forgotten what an astonishingly good camera it is.

Ump and I don't always agree about things but, in another thread he too concluded the 1dx2 is as close to a "One Camera Does All" solution as it gets.

I have really missed the insanely clean high iso abilities.

You should get plenty of warning. A replacement has to be announced, then actually released.

The 1DX came very close to the Olympic games in 2012. The 1DX Mark II had more margin. They probably had issues with the 1DX, which postponed it somewhat.

It'd have to be a super compelling upgraded set of features to get me to part with this 1DX2. I'm of the opinion that there isn't anything more that Canon can do with the DSLR, aside from some small bumps in resolution/DR/ISO noise control/AF precision, none of which will really improve my photography enough to warrant the upgrade. My next upgrade will be to a full-featured, refined mirrorless 5 or 1-series, and I don't see that happening for a few years. Until then, I'll continue to enjoy this outstanding 1DX2.

Would the "1DX Mark III" be coming 1Q 2020 ?

My opinion is that when the 1D X Mk III has been selling for a couple of months, the 1D X Mk II will be seriously reduced in price at authorized dealers, and that there will be many months supply of the newly-discontinued model.
I do not have an exact recall on the availability of the 1D X when the 1D X Mk II was out, but I feel that it was still available for sale as new-in-the-box, from B&H Photo for possibly a year.
I think that Canon builds lots of these to service professionals and agencies, and that they maintain deep inventory levels of the 1 Series cameras.

I also feel that there will be a significant price drop on 1D X Mk II's that are in-stock, when the Mk III is selling.

I bought a new 1D X from B&H in September of 2015, for $4,600 USD.
This was a $1,800 discount from the $6,400 price at its launch.
At that time, the Mk II was not even announced, but it was anticipated shortly.
The $4,600 was also "only" $1,100 more than what I paid for a 5D Mk III at its launch.
In my mind at the time, I saw this as a great value.

I think that first you will see more and more "bundles" of stuff included with whatever 1 Series body that is being phased out, then the bundles will get smaller, and the selling price drops even more.

I still have and used the 1D X and I also have a 1D X Mk II.
The 1D X is still a very capable camera and I have taken many decent images with it.
I assume that the same will be true when the Mk II is no longer the new kid on the block.

I would suggest Ah-keong, to not become overly concerned about the availability of the eventually discontinued 1D X Mk II's, and also to anticipate not needing to save as much as possibly planned.

When I broke my 1DX, in 2017, I couldn't find any to buy. Not even used at that particular time.
So I got myself a 1DX Mark II instead.

There's something wrong with your camera. Or it's two different cats. :-)
