Yes, I know that, of course.
And as I mentioned some threads in the past I am pretty much surprised, how well Canon is able to withhold information, to seal the leakages and to gag all the NDA partners (;
It's quite simple.... you talk and you don't get paid and you get sued and you never do business with Canon again.... It gives great incentive to keep quiet....
But in the past it was different. And this is what I am aware of.
But there are some other reasons, how rumors appear, e.g. Canon wants something to trickle through.
Or someone is sure enough, not to get caught.
And of course, the rumored 7D2 specs are not only from Craig’s fantasy.
The problem I have is that there are multiple rumour sites and they all claim to have inside information. The specs are not consistent across them. For example:
24Mpixel and 20Mpixel are both claimed
1DX build and 5D3 build are both claimed
Dual Digic 5 and dual Digic 6 are both claimed
Wifi is said to be there and is said to not be there
Touchscreen is said to be there and said not to be
Both 65 point and 45 point AF are said to be there
I interpret this as nobody knows...
