Update: Since the Nikon D4 has been announced on 2012-01-06, I have also written a concise post about the Nikon D4 vs Canon 1D X.
Canon has thrown down the gauntlet with the announcement of its brand new flagship DSLR, the Canon EOS-1D X. This new camera is an extremely important new model for Canon, make no mistake about it.
The significant stuff, in table form:
|# AF points
||1005-pixel RGB||100,000-pixel RGB|
||3″, 921k dots||3.2″, 1040k dots|
|Price (body)||$5200||$6800 (est)|
|Announcement date||Oct 2009||Oct 2011|
