I'm gonna stab a guess and say it's going to be $2799 MSRP
Followed by 8-10 threads of "7Dmk2 or 5Dmk3, help me decide!"
Fllowed by 8-10 threads "why is the 7D mk2 so expensive?"
If it doesn't street for close to $2000, I think it's a wounded duck for Canon sales. If Canon does try to pop early adopters over $2500, I dont think it lasts very long. They need to have this puppy moving by Black Friday. $1999 street prices.
The 5Dmk3 was PROOF they can do exactly that, providing the camera is THAT GOOD.
Don't get me wrong, I think $2800 is too high, I just won't be surprised to see it. Took me 2 years to pick up my 5dMk3, but that's because it was only worth $2500 to me.
If the 7Dmk2 is a lightning fast, crop version of the 5dMK3 as we're speculating, they can set any price below the cost of a new 5dmk3 and people will pay it up front.
If you can hold out 1-2 years (which, if price matters, it's not that hard), then we can snag it for a more reasonable price.
