A 7D successor is coming. I am convinced. Especially after seeing that Camerashops are offering the current 7D with a present (like a Wacom tablet) I do believe they do that to get rid of their stock samples.
I hope the 7D MKII will inherit the 61-AF
- 61-point AF with up to 41 cross-type AF points
- ISO up to 25600 and Less high ISO noise at 6400 (would be great if that would be even 12800)
- dual slots
I don't mind keeping 18 megapixels and same framerate as now.
I think that at the end , the 7D MKII willl be positioned where the 1D MKIV is now and replace this camera. So no more x1.3 but only x1.0 and x1.6 (as where the 7D MKII is the top of the APS-C line)
I can't make any sense of this whatsoever.
Neither can I, so help me here....
I think what you are saying is that just as people compare rough feature sets of the 7D and the MKIII, the 7DII will have a feature set that is close to the MkIV. Those two camera sets also seem to have similar price points to the comparable cameras. $1500 for the 7D and MKIII and the IV seems to be moving towards the probably intro price of a 7DII.
Forgive me if I have mistranslated, the I see the concept of a symmetry in Canon's movements, so I might not be correct.
Exaclty. Spot on.
btw I know that the AF-61 points of the FF can not be inherited 1:1 to APS-C. I hope for a more advanced AF in the 7D MKII than the 19 points. Though this one is already very nice.
