From now and onwards Sony will put it’s all concentration in worldwide fullframe mirrorless market, according to the Sony representatives ” Our goal this year is to become the leader in this market for the first time.” Sony leading the mirrorless section from past five years but they are now in fully prepared to beat down Canon and Nikon global DSLR sales record.
Take a look what Sony representatives said on last monday
Sony will concentrate on full-frame cameras in the future. In the short run, we will target existing full-frame camera users and then attract those who use entry and mid-class models to upgrade their cameras in the long run, raising the popularity of full-frame cameras. To do so, we plan to boost our presence in the professional market such as photo studios and wedding photography. Besides the stagnant growth of the camera market, the entry-class segment of the lens-interchangeable camera market is slowing down drastically.
We held a 59 percent share in the mirror-less camera market last year and have been the top seller of mirror-less cameras for the last five years, but we have never topped the gross lens-interchangeable camera market on a yearly basis. Our goal this year is to become the leader in this market for the first time.

We are not confirmed but thanks to Anonymous Remailer (austria) for informing us, According to a forum post published in dpreview forum the upcoming Canon 5DX and Canon 1DX Mark II camera will feature new DIGIC 7 image processor. Take a look at the glimpse of forum post below
The Digic 7 is going to be a quad core cpu which will allow 4x the processing power for high MP, high frame rate bodies. The 5DX will contain one Digic 7 and the 1DX Mark II will contain 2 Digic 7s and 1 Digic 6. The Digic 6 will be for metwring and other smaller tasks. The 1DX will have a different larger battery while thr 5DX will keep going with the same.
This next processor from Canon will be class leading and will be much faster than whats currently out. It will have multicores. The processing power will be equivalent to a laptop from years ago.
At the moment we are not confirmed that Canon upcoming 5D Mark II successor will know as Canon 5D Mark IV or 5DX, since Canon does have several protypes of current Canon 5D Mark IV and it may announce two different models by naming them Canon 5DX and Canon 5DXs, one model dedicated for sports and low light work and other model with high resolution sensor dedicated for videography (4K) and studio work.

We have published earlier that Canon upcoming flagship camera may feature high resolution sensor, the recent leaked info suggest is the upcoming camera may feature a newly developed 24MP Fullframe sensor.
Canon 1DX Mark II Major Specification (published earlier)
Higher Megapixel Sensor
Advance Autofocus System (compared to the current 61-Point High Density Reticular AF)
New Technology in Viewfinder
No information available type of image processor used.
The upcoming Canon 1DX Mark II is rumored to feature a 24 Megapixel Fullframe sensor and new image processor. With the help of new sensor and image processor the Camera will touch a new world record in shooting continuous full resolution shots with AF. The current Canon 1DX camera can shoot 14JPEG files with full AF support, No fullframe sensor based DSLR or Mirrorless camera able to touch Canon current flagship Canon 1DX 14fps speed with AF. So, Crossing the 14fps limit is not an easy task for Canon itself, to achieve 14fps+ frame rate by having 24 MP resolution (compared to 18 MP of Canon 1DX) the camera will need advance image processor possibly Dual DIGIC 6+.
