Wow! Zeiss did not waste any time! While the 55mm is nice, I would DEFINITELY want to rent the 85mm. That's gotta be a gorgeous lens to use.

Has there ever been a 7DII release-date related rumour at the CR2 level? (but as they say, sooner or later, it'll eventually be true lol)
I'm not sure if there has been, but note that this one is not. It's a CR2 rumor of a new dSLR, and "the assumption is" (presumably CRguy's assumption) that it will be the 7DII. Personally, I agree with the sentiments above that it will be a new Rebel/xxxD body (assuming one is announced at all).
If you go by the fact that the 7D is old, outdated, and the 70D gives you a better (arguably) camera for a lower price and is killing 7D sales, then the 7D2 would have to be the next update.... but you can't forget that the Rebels are the vast bulk of Canon DSLR sales and that an updated ( even very minor) Rebel will have far more impact on the bottom line than the 7D2 will have...
Despite my almost delusional desire for a 7D2, to me it makes sense that the next camera will be a new Rebel.... after all, the T5i is a year old and overdue for a replacement.....
More Dynamic Range IS at the top of my list.
So you bet I'm interested.
I'll be thrilled to buy a new 5Dm3 to get another stop.
If its 2 stops or more – I’ll be ecstatic !
The dismaying part is this means the 5Dm3 sensor already snags a significantly wider Dynamic Range but for some political/marketing/strategy reason Canon decided not to let us use it.
Reminds of how Intervalometer function could be added in a manner of hours (of development time) if Canon wanted to. Its just that Canon wants to sell you a separate device.
Now if they would only get rid of the pattern noise in shadows – I’d be a very content fellow.
