We've received official word from Canon that April is now the month photo professionals will be able to get their hands on its latest flagship DSLR, the EOS-1D X. The company had originally aimed to have the full-frame 18.1-megapixel camera — complete with three processors and a 51,200 max native ISO — in shops by March, but Canon admitted to Amateur Photographer that "development delays" would push it to late April. We were mighty impressed with the EOS-1D X when we first held the camera back in October, and it's fair to say those with deep enough pockets for the $6,800 (body-only) asking price have an all-around powerhouse of a DSLR headed their way just a couple months from now. Need a refresher on the specifications for the EOS-1D X? Our database has you covered. We've also put together a comparison to show how Canon's latest fares against the D4 from chief rival Nikon.
