The new Canon EOS-1D X Mark II was unveiled last night and as with many pro digital SLRs aimed at sports photographers and photojournalists, the new camera has impressive speed. In particular, it can fire off bursts of images at 14 frames per second with auto exposure (AE) and predictive autofocus (AF) through the viewfinder, and 16fps with the mirror locked.
