Description What's in the box?
 
Immense power. Phenomenal speed. A remarkable combination of innovation and refinement. The new EOS-1D X Mark II camera is nothing but legendary every step of the way. Building on a heritage of sophisticated innovation, the EOS-1D X Mark II is blazingly fast. Up to 14 fps* (up to 16 fps* in Live View mode) can be captured at a burst rate of up to 170 RAWs with a CFast™ card, and an improved 61-point AF system helps deliver clean, sharp images quickly, even in dim light. This remarkable speed means faster recording too: 4K video can be recorded at up to 60 fps with smooth AF and strikingly clear detail. Combined with superb low-light performance thanks to its powerful sensor and expandable ISO range, the EOS-1D X Mark II performs brilliantly, swiftly and stunningly no matter when or where the photographer is shooting. From the stadium, safari or studio to virtually everywhere in between, the EOS-1D X Mark II maintains and enhances all the hallmarks of what Canon has to offer, marking a new page in the legacy of the EOS series of cameras.

One of the most exciting new breakthrough features of the EOS-1D X Mark II is its ability to offer autofocus, through the viewfinder, at effective maximum apertures of f/8. For the first time ever, a Canon EOS SLR camera can autofocus — with select combinations of an EF telephoto or zoom lens and Version III Canon EF tele extender — at effective f/8 maximum apertures.

Many experienced Canon EOS shooters have long requested the ability to autofocus with lenses slower than the traditional f/5.6 limit — especially nature, wildlife and sports photographers. Any shooter who routinely relies on long telephoto lenses, and who wants to expand their reach with a Canon-brand tele extender, can find themselves wanting the same capability.

Typical real-world examples might be attaching a 2x extender to an f/4 lens, like an EF 500mm f/4L IS II. Or, attaching a 1.4x extender to an f/5.6 lens, such as an EF 400mm f/5.6L. Either way, the lens + extender’s widest effective aperture would equate to f/8.

Canon first answered these requests for f/8 AF compatibility with the EOS 3 (a 35mm film camera), introduced in 1998, which permitted AF with lenses from f/5.6~f/8 at the center AF point only. Subsequent efforts, until now, have likewise involved AF at f/8 only at the center AF point, or in some cases allowing four surrounding AF points to provide AF Point Expansion around that center AF point.
