Canon 1D X Mark II to Feature 4K Video But No 4K on Canon 5D Mark IV?

Canon 1D X Mark II Mockup

New rumors from Canon Rumors point to an upcoming Canon 1D X replacement will feature 4K video capture. Unfortunately though, the same rumors say that the 1D X Mark II will be the only next-gen Canon DSLR to offer 4K video capture at launch.

We have to remember, of course, that these are rumors but I still want to bang my head on the desk at even the suggestion that the next generation of Canon DSLRs will continue to neuter their video capabilities.
