It's been more than three years since Canon first released their flagship camera the EOS-1D X Mark II. Since then, plenty of other cameras have been released, new flagship models from other manufacturers and even a whole new mount. Three years is a long tie in the world of technology so how does the current Canon flagship camera hold up to today's standards?
With a price tag of $5,499.00, this is not a cheap, budget camera. I mean the 1D X Mark II is more expensive than some medium format cameras. Even a quick search on eBay shows how this camera seems to hold its value quite well; so what is it about this aging flagship model that still appeals to people? In a recent video by Eric Floberg, he talks about why he bought the 1D X Mark II. Personally I still think it's a brilliant camera that holds up incredibly well against all of the current cameras on the market. It's still the only camera on the market that offers 4k 60p with a 1.3x crop factor below $10,000. That extra sensor real estate is actually very useful and it means you can make better use of your full-frame lenses. I find it quite interesting that even after three years the 1D X Mark II is still the only camera that offers this feature from any photography specific camera. Although this camera wouldn't suit my needs, I still think it's one of the best cameras currently on the market.
What are your thoughts on this camera, do you think it's still worth buying?
