EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 7Dmk2 any rumors??
« on: March 14, 2012, 05:45:20 PM »
ok , let's go back to the original topic.

5D3 solid and authentic rumors started to came out about 3-4 months before the actual release date. Not even a CR1 regarding 7D replacement.... so, judging by this pattern 7Dmk2 will be released no earlyer than Photokina or winter 2012/2013.

My guess regarding Canon on Photokina:


- 7Dmk2
- a megapixels monster DSLR
- a 4k DSLR

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!

the ''leaks'' regarding the new 5D3 have emerged out 3-4 month before the actual release. in case 7Dmk2 no rumors, nothing....

That let me to one conclusion:

No 7Dmk2 in the next 4 months. The nearest announce date possible (in my opinion) will be Photokina in September.

for 7D2 i will like to see:

- 1D4 AF
- APS-C sensor same resolution (18mp) or APS-H sensor with the magical number (22mp)
- same fps
- most important better noise performance.

EOS Bodies / Re: Is this a picture of the new 70D

that image is a FAKE, a 50D with flip screen and two hidious speakers . i don't thing Canon will drop the current 60D body design.

Way too many xxxDs out there. I want to see a xxDD :) 50DD

There are not too many xxxD's out there.... in my opinion 1100D (the cheapest one) have the best IQ from all the APS-C sesnor bodyes that Canon have today.

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.

If you are using the camera for stock photos... than grab the 5D3. If you are using the photos for prints no more than A3 paper format , grab a 7D and a extra good quality lens ( like 16-35mm f/2.8 L)

Any word regarding the 7D replacement??? there will be one??? If yes, when ...Photokina or 2013?

 i give an example in my country ( EU member state) a 5D2 is costing (converted in USD) $2400 and a 1D4 $ 4450 a 7D $1600...

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.

The $3500 price in US is including the American tax (vat) and profit. When the camera is shipped in UK the taxes and profit is not included ( witch the raw price is far less than $3500). in my opinion the companies that imports the camera is adding at least 100% profit.

that why the prices are so high compared with US.

Since this is a wishlist - built in battery grip would be great!

Built in? you mean a 1D form factor? What about the people who want a lighter body?

make it in two bodies type, one with integrated grip and one without. that feature will be a premier in DSLR market.

....and the price can be under $2400 ( say $2399 for the gripped one and $ 1799-1899 for the normal body). i personally believe that the gripped one will have more success.

Now that the high ISO samples are available do you think that the price is to high??? i personally don't think so.

WoW 145 votes.....looool that is all??? the pool is relevant when we will see... say.... 2344 against 2653.

You are right. It is moving the 7D in the position of the 1D MK IV
But, if they move the 70D up as well, the new price of the 7D MKII might be justified

to move the 7D2 in the 1D4 place ( a crop sensor nature and sports pro camera for those who don't afford a 1DX) they need to come out with a much more improved sensor.

I am sore the 7D line will move more and more towards sports and wildlife .

My wishlist:

- 22 Megapixels
- APS-C CMOS sensor with improved low and high ISO (clean ISO 3200)!!
- Dual Digic 5+
- 45-point TTL CMOS sensor (39 cross-type for F2.8 or faster lenses)
- 10 fps and carbon shutter (200.000 actuations)
- Four levels of High ISO NR
- 1.0x magnification and 100% coverage viewfinder
- 3.2-type, approx.1.04m dot (3:2 wide) Clear View LCD II
- iFCL metering with 63-zone dual-layer sensor
- Same build, slightly improved weather sealing
- Dual Card (SD and CF)
- USB 3

No flip-out screen!

(the 70D with 19 AF-points and Canon 1D Mark IV off the market)

Those specs rise the price around $3000 at least.... I'm sure canon wants to kep the price at $2000 or under.

i don't think the 7D is replaceable at the time being. its the cornerstone piece of canon marketing . the 1dx and 5dmk3 seem to fill in the space that the 7D created. I think the 7D is that camera that was meant for the high end enthusiast but not not pros. explains the price . anything below the 7D is for amateurs , anything above is for pros.

   First of all Canon is running a business and 7D was, is and will be one of the best selling body ( like 5D2 or even better).
   The key feature of the 7D series is his crop frame sensor ( EXTRA REACH) in a pro lvl body.

Today Canon don't have any more an APS-H sensor. In my opinion there are two possibilities:

1. push a little more up in class the 7D2, and fit it with a APS-H sensor;  and extra features  for the 70D to compensate today 7D

2. Keep the APS-C sensor in 7D2 , improve the noise and the others features.
