Looking at the Northlight website and going back quite a few months there seems to be a lot of "throw mud at the wall and see if it sticks" going on.Don't forget that northlight said that the release of the 7D2 was only a month or so away....... And announced that a year and a half ago..... With a spec list that was inferior to the 70D and no mention of DPAF. I don't believe anything they claim.
I'm sure replacements are in the works. When will we see them is the question...so in the meantime enjoy what you've got.
Exactly. I've spent the evening reading that site and I'm even more skeptical than I was before.
Their rumors with release dates and specs are frequently wrong, and Rumors like this one on the main page of CR are a combination of common knowledge (yes, Canon will eventually update their line of cameras) and guesses.
The saying "even a broken clock is right twice a day" relates to that site nicely. They make crap up most of the time, but occasionally announce something legitimate (usually nothing earth-shattering) and then claim to be a reliable source.
