In this review, we will be comparing 1D X MII and D4s, two Pro DSLR cameras from Canon and Nikon. Canon 1D X II was introduced to market in February 2016 and Nikon D4s was launched in February 2014. There is 23 months difference between 1D X MII and D4s so we don't expect to see a huge technology difference between these two cameras but it would still give an advantage to younger 1D X MII, especially in sensor tech.
We can expect this to be a close match up because both models are ranked amongst the best in Pro DSLR cameras. Out of 36 cameras in this class, Canon 1D X II is ranked #4
with an overall score of 79 and Nikon D4s is ranked #6
with an overall score of 75.
