Nothing inherently wrong with the previous version. Canon will service it for about 1-2 decades more.

just curious what you guys think the next cameras will have in regards to their connection for tethered shooting? Will Canon put USB3 or Thunderbolt and if it's Thunderbolt could there be a new version of Thunderbolt that doesn't coincide with today's version?
I have not kept up on the computer news but I do remember when Apple dropped firewire 400 that a lot of cameras were using for tethered shooting
thanks for any insights
p.s any reason why they won't put SDI connections verses HDMI?
you've got to test a pro level camera in cold weatherand the Constance Bay Ice Fishing tournament. That makes four!As for major sporting events the next ones are the 2016 Sumner Games in Brazil, 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia and 2018 Winter Games in Korea.
I dont know of any major sporting event in 2015 so my bet is the new 1-Series body will be out sometime in 2016.
The Rugby World Cup is a truly massive sporting event, and will take place in 2015. It will take place in England. I can't wait, as am already looking forward to it!!!
World cup of Cricket also happens early 2015. Thats three major events in 2015!
LOL@ Constance Bay Ice Fishing tournament....times a billion!
If it does not work properly at -30C it is completely useless as a camera. Well known fact.
5mm narrowerDidnt bother waiting and got a 40/2,8
Wow....a completely different lens, even a 24-70L would have been a more versatile alternative
Or Ford's 700 pound reduction in weight going from steel to aluminum.Apple is notoriously known for being secretive about future products and services. It gives them an edge and helps in their PR.
Or how about the Toyota Hybrid System announcements, fuel cell vehicle announcements, or other maker's (including Tesla) battery electric vehicle announcements? Those are hardly "stagnant".
Laugh if you like, he is most likely correct. The 7D was the pinnacle of the APS-C segment, too. You do realize we're talking about cameras, not just sensors, right?+1
By far, the most important aspect of getting a good picture (after the photographer) is the AF system. As I am fond of saying, who cares what the DR is of a blurry picture The 7D was king of the APS-C cameras for 5 years with it's balance of features and even now, it is arguable if the 70D is better... (I think it is)
+1You have to look at these bodies from a product positioning point of view. And as far as Canon naming conventions goes single digit bodies tend to be the highest end of that product segment. The more digits in the name the lower end it is.
I would choose it again over any other APS-C camera. Nikon D7100? Hate the button layout. Pentax K-3? Bad autofocus and too few lenses. Canon 70D? Too small buffer, although, I might jump for that one instead. The 7D was not only, it is a great camera.
I'm wondering why fast primes like a 35/1.4 or a 85/1.2 don't come with IS. The fastest lens to feature IS is the 35mm (and the 200mm) f2. Why is that? People would love a 50mm f1.2 IS Is there some sort of technical problem? I can't imagine anything else, it would sell well, would set them apart, isn't too expensive... Can someone help me?I honestly wouldnt be surprised if the next L primes will have IS. It just that you have to wait for the timing and product cycle to play out for the current generation of primes.
In preparation for the introduction of the 7D Mark II I already have buyers for my 7D. Based on the technlogies in the 1D X, 5D3, 6D, 70D, 700D, 100D, 1200D and even M2 it will be flagship APS-C body with all the technological trimmings one could ever wish for. It will outdo anything Nikon or Sony has in the market.
Too lazy to argue my point further. So I will conceed that Rugby and Cricket are equal to the World Cup and Olympics. I do this because I am lazy.
The Cricket World Cup and Rugby World Cup, not just the sports in general. These are major global sporting events with viewers in the billions. Fact.
And I doubt you are lazy, it just adds nothing to your theory when you dismiss such important events out of hand.
Anyway, back to the 1D X ii and 5D iv.
I must say that I find it a little amusing that on a rumour site where you are giving your opinion of a theory with regards to the future 5D and 1D product line from Canon, that you ignore two of the world's largest sporting events.
Cricket World Cup:
and the Rugby World Cup:
They may not be sports that are popular in the Philippines, a country I love, but I can assure you they are right up there with FIFA World Cup and Olympics.
But we already discussed that earlier in the thread. It is always easy to theorise when you select which facts to omit, ignore or manipulate.
