Canon EOS 1DX Mark II Review: Still Relevant In 2019 For Photography?

Even if you’re not into photography, you’ve probably heard of the name Canon. Over the past couple of decades, Canon has been a driving force in photography, releasing great cameras such as the EOS 5D Mark II, one of the first few DSLRs that was capable of shooting video. But perhaps their most iconic DSLR ever?

That would be the Canon EOS 1DX Mark II.

But now that it’s 2019, the world is full of capable mirrorless cameras from the likes of Sony, Nikon and Canon themselves. So, is the 1DX Mark II still relevant in 2019? We took it out for a spin, along with the EF 70-200mm F/2.8 L IS III USM and the EF 50mm F/1.2 L USM, to see for ourselves!

  1. I thought the question was not why would anyone buy this in 2019 but what choices a professional photographer has. This is not a selfy camera. Total cost with lense and all gears could go well and truly over $10K.

  2. i think it still hold a strong place if not 1rst place for all people in 2019 ! the question is will it survive the 2020 !!! ??

  3. I got my 1DXii about a year ago and I couldn't be happier. I came from a 5Diii and will never look back. Sure it's bulky and heavy but who cares, it just works. Yeah it might not have the tricks and bells and whistles that newer 2018/19 cameras have like the XT3 or Sony this or whatever that but I love it for it's simplicity, fast AF, Duel Pixel Af and the images I get out of the camera both stills and in video to me make it worth it. With a flick of a switch I can be in 4k 60, then I can map a button to shoot 1080p at 120fps then switch back to photos literally in seconds. Sold the 50mm 1.2 as it was super sexy of a lens, just wasn't to excited about the focal length. I got the 35mm 1.4ii instead and I'm way happier. The 70-200 2.8ii IS also goes with me everywhere and it just such a sweet lens paired with the camera even for hand held video I can stabilize at 70-100mm it's that good.

    This camera will keep me content for at least another 4-5 maybe even 6 years as It has the features I use and need, regardless of the new systems that come out.

  4. I’m surprised it only has 20mp. I own the 5D IV and it has 30mp. I always thought the 1DX II would be better in every way.

  5. The question "Is XYZ camera still relevant in 20XX?" makes sense only when the camera being discussed has had at least 2-3 upgraded versions released… Canon 5D mkI or mkII, Nikon D7100 etc. come to mind.
    This still relevant video concept is starting to get overused. What's next, Sony A9 or Panasonic S1 being relevant in end-2019?

  6. Should i buy the 24-70 f4 for 400 euro instead of 700 for my 80d??
    Mainly use it for architecture photography, and dont go wider than 35mm

  7. Love the 1DXII, it's a camera that feels like it is always ready for the races. SO quick and responsive, and when the shutter is firing away rapidly it's a lot of fun!
