Want 14 frame per second pics? Canon 1Dx Mark II will do it for a mere $6300

Canon has announced its new flagship DSLR, the full-frame EOS-1D X Mark II. It features a new 20.2MP CMOS sensor with Dual Pixel AF, and uses a pair of Dual DIGIC 6+ processors to capture 4K video and shoot continuously at up to 16 fps. The camera has a native ISO of 100-51200, expandable to 409600.

The new 61-point autofocus system has 41 cross-type sensors and 24% larger frame coverage than its predecessor. Its center point is sensitive to -3EV in OneShot AF. In live view the camera uses the latest iteration of Canon's Dual Pixel AF technology for high-speed focusing in OneShot mode. The metering system has also been updated to use a 360k-pixel RGB+IR sensor, which the company says improves subject - including face - detection and tracking.

As with its predecessors, the 1D X is as rugged a camera as you'll find. It's magnesium alloy body is fully weather-sealed and has a shutter that will last for approximately 400,000 cycles. In addition to its large optical viewfinder (now with better, adjustable AF point illumination), the Mark II has a 3.2" Clear View II LCD with 1.62 million dots, up from 1.04 million dots. The screen is touch-enabled, but only for autofocus point selection in Live View. Another new addition is a built-in GPS (with an e-compass), which sits in a 'hump' on the top of the viewfinder. Otherwise, the design of the Mark II is very similar to that of its predecessor.

That should be a mere $6k. $6300 is Adorama's bundle price with a CFast card and reader. It'll do 14fps with CF but only 73 RAW instead of 170 before the buffer runs out.

Yes, you'll need the CF fast card (and reader later) to keep up with the 14fps rate.
