A devilish autofocus

No major changes in image quality compared to its predecessor, the EOS 1D-X Mk II, the sensor is still a CMOS of 20 million pixels, 20.1 to be precise. Connectivity is evolving with the native arrival of WiFi and Bluetooth. The gigabit Ethernet port is still present but the USB-3 gives way to a USB-C port.
