7D Mark II - Top APS-C

7D body
100% VF
10 FPS
Deep buffer
1 x CF + 1 x SD
3"2 fixed LCD 1040k
61 point AF
f/8


8D - Semi Pro APS-C

60D body
97% VF
6 FPS
1 x SD
3" swivel screen

Where is the new EX 440 RT flash? 100-400mm f/4-5.6L IS USM, the new (non L) standard zoom replacing the 28-135? I thought it would be the new kit lens for the 6D.

EOS Bodies / Re: My next Canon in my dreams
« on: September 17, 2012, 04:02:36 PM »
my dream Canon DSLR  must have the fallowing features:

- APS-H sensor with 20MP
- 8-10 fps
- at least 1Dmk4 AF
- weather sealed
- dual card slots ( CF and SD)
- Canon 1Dmk4 IQ and high ISO performance
- 7D size body/construction
- 5Dmk3 AFMA system
- Price: i will gladly pay $2500 for this camera

The other features like video, Wi-fi, GPS are just details that I'm not interested in

In one word this camera my be called Canon EOS 7Dmk2.

This is my dream sports/wild life camera. Please Canon make this happen!

Make sense, yes or no?

EOS 1D X - Flagship (moderate MP, high FPS, best build, AF and metering)

EOS 3D - Pro FF (high MP, low FPS)

EOS 5D Mark III - Pro FF (moderate MP, moderate FPS, Pro AF and build)

EOS 6D - Semi Pro FF (Smaller brother to 5D series)

EOS 7D Mark II - Pro APS-C (High FPS and large buffer, Pro AF and build)

EOS 8D - The new xxD line. Semi Pro APS-C (Smaller brother to 7D series)

I believe you meant 70D insted of 8D....

No. With the EOS xxD line running short of new numbers my guess is that this line will move up to the xD line in form of a 8D or 9D. The little brother to the EOS 7D line. Just as the 6D is the smaller brother to the EOS 5D line.

When it's time to replace the EOS 90D. I can only see it two ways:

1) The model after 90D will move up and be named 8D/9D.
2) The xxD line starts over again with 15D, 25D, 35D and so on.

So there is no pro FF?  The 5D Mark III is currently a pro camera, and it is FF.  Professionals aren't buying the 1DX to shoot weddings and senior pictures, I'll tell you that right now.  What does semi-pro mean anyways?

I do think someday there will be an 8D and certainly a 3D line.  Wouldn't things get interesting if there were a 4D?

I hear you.  :)

Updated my first post.

I think I'd buy either a 4D or 3D line, not because I need it, but simply because I could sell my 5D3 and use the 1DX's along with high MP's.  I can see that actually being a useful trade although I'm sure the economics aren't going to be there for me, especially now.

Do you think the 8D line will come before say, a 70D?  7D Mark II?  Since 6D is FF, do you think everything 7D and down will be APS-C?  Is APS-H gone?

The APS-H may reappear next year in the 7D2 with a 24MP sensor (would mean 4.7 micron pixels, still bigger than 4.3 on the 7D mark I) with a 45-point AF system from the 1D4, but it'll have dual-DIGIC5+ chips and shoot @ 12 fps in hi-speed mode....plus it'll have geotagging and Wi-Fi too and the wildlife/sports photographers can operate it from their smartphone or tablet device

I'd buy that for sure!

Canon, take notice.  ;)

I know "pro" photographers that use Rebels. The photographer is the "Pro" not the camera.

With "Pro/Semi Pro" I ment camera body style. I know that a Pro photographer can take pictures with any camera. ;)

Maybe they will launch both the 8D (or 70D) and 7D Mark II in next February?

My dream bird camera would be a 7D Mark II with APS-H and f/8, 10 FPS and 24,3 MP.  ;D That coupled with
a new EF 100-400 f/4-5.6 IS USM and the EF 1.4 III would be awesome.

Problem is: The xxD line is running out of numbers soon. 70D-80D-90D...

EOS Bodies / Re: When it could be presented the new Canon 70D?
« on: September 17, 2012, 08:17:33 AM »
My new guess is that the new 70D actually will be named 8D. A smaller brother to the 7D. Just like the 6D is the smaller brother to the 5D.
