Canon slotted the 60D perfectly in-between the Rebels and the 7D.
Yet, the 60D is perceived as a super-Rebel and Canon is forced to sell it at Rebel prices.
To change that, Canon will likely spec the 70D better ... which will make it very close (identical?) to the 7D.
The only way I could see Canon having both 70D and 7DII in their lineup is if they put a different sensor in the 7DII.
Some new 1.6x sensor, with better low-light abilities than the sensor(s) in the next-gen Rebels and the 70D.
It's quite unlikely, though, that Canon will make a special sensor just for the 7DII.
More likely the 7D line will just be discontinued.
I've heard rumor indicate Sony and Nikon had an agreement, Sony let Nikon use that 36MP cmos first, then Sony will put this cmos into their own FF body after one year, but the condition is Nikon have to use Sony's new XQD card at least in one of their bodies.
FF would completely ruin the 7D mk II. If you want FF with good AF, the 5D mk III is the camera for you. The biggest attraction of the 7D is it's high speed AF on a 1.6x crop body.The 7D successor will not be anything other than APS-C.I really hope not too! I have to say I don't understand this thinking that everything must be full frame and that it's the only way to go. I love my APS-C, even though it is a dodgy old 400D. The reach that the crop factor enables me is great, I just wouldn't be able to do that with FF.
I'm hoping they announce a 7D MkII soon, but looking back at the previous announcements, it could be a while. Being really geeky, there were 349 days between the 5D MkII being announced and the 7D. If you took their refresh cycles as identical, then the 7D will be announced on Thursday 14th February 2013. Or Valentines days. Hmm, I sure they could build an Ad campaign around that!
Way too many xxxDs out there. I want to see a xxDD 50DD
I have the money for the Canon 5D mark III but I am not sure if this is the best option for me. I do a bit of everything Studio work,event's , & soon some storm chasing weather sealing will be a must.
Right, so the 5D3 is being sold, at profit, for $3500. That's £2,225. VAT is currently 20%, so that's an additional £445. So bottom line is it should cost a maximum of £2,670. Rather than the current recommended retail of £2990.
I'm not sure how this works - surely international retailers are miffed that international chains can make much more profit?
Also worth noting: Ordering it internationally stands the chance of not getting charged duty. And even if you did, it works out £300 cheaper than buying it from a UK site. Just saying.
