I will be the first to tell you that the Canon 1D X Mark II is a great camera and a personal favorite, but at 3.5 years old, it's starting to show its age just a bit, and some eyes are starting to turn toward the forthcoming Mark III version. The good news is that it's coming next year, and with it will come some fantastic features.
