Maybe Canon has decided to finally make some pro-grade lenses to go with the 7D, and is waiting until they can launch both at once.
All the Pro grade lenses (the "L" lenses) will work on the 7D. Do you mean that they will make pro grade EF-S (crop sensor) lenses? To do that, they will need a pro grade body. A 1Dx with an APS-C sensor.
Of course that's what I mean. 15 years into the digital age, and Canon makes a superb APS format camera (the 7D), and yet no professional grade lenses designed specifically for the format. Meanwhile, M43 and Fuji are rounding out some really good lens lineups for their smaller cameras.
This whole "L lenses work on APS sensors" thing is beyond idiotic. You knew full well I meant designed for the format. Only Pentax has bothered to make the appropriate lenses for their APS format cameras. But Canon continues to add 18-xxx mm superzooms. They should have had a 58mm f/1.2 lens designed for portraiture a decade ago. A 50-135mm f/2.0 would be an amazing sports lens. And of course a 15-45mm f/2.0. And that's just for starters.
Nikon's been just as stupid, and for their most profitable cameras. There's no direct upgrade path for either camera company. Madness.
