A pro aimed EOS M would be nice.

A 7D2 is way overdue.

And the BIG MP camera will be here soon.

Let's see some innovation canon.


Any bets if it's gonna be same Sensor tech repackaged... or something new?


Well, there was a rumor about that:

http://www.canonrumors.com/2012/09/eos-7d-mark-ii-eos-70d-700d-in-2013-cr1/

"A new sensor line will appear in 2013 that will be seen across the entire APS-C lineup. Expect to see the first announcements in the first half of 2013.

The delays in developing the sensor was apparently a big reason for the big firmware update for the 7D. It’s also suggested that there may not be a 7D/60D amalgamation in the future. The 7D Mark II will not be an APS-H camera as some have wished/rumored."

I'd love it to be a fantastic new sensor with groundbreaking tech, but the pessimist in me says it'll just be a marginal increase on its predecessor. Having said that, the original 7D was pretty groundbreaking itself, so maybe they'll continue the trend. Good time to showcase some new tech and wouldn't be the first time it's happened in a less-than-1-series camera.

I just hope they keep it as the top of the range enthusiast APS-C it is now, rather than outprice the existing market.  If they release the new big MP camera as rumoured, then they'll have the pro segment covered with that and the 1DX anyway.

Exciting times, roll on more rumours and an announcement date!

After their serious loss of market shares to Nikon in 2012, I expect Canon to return with a vengeance next year for their camera releases. If they still do not fix their sensor problems by 2013, they can kiss their no. 1 market share status goodbye forever.

Canon could hold off nikon if they release a stunning lens line-up too irresistible making Nikon's sensors irrelevant. Afterall, Canon has always bragged about their superior lens line-up.

14-24L
35L II
50L II
85L III
135mm F/1.8L IS USM
100-400L II

If these lenses are released next year, I'll be very comfortable with canon.

I'd love to have some of these lenses too... but at what prices?

14-24L                                      $2699
35L II                                        $1600
50L II                                        $2400
85L III                                      $3150
135mm F/1.8L IS                     $2799
100-400L II                              $ 3200

 :P

Thanks.... but the T4i was also new sensor tech according to them right?

This is not what I meant.

EOS 7D Mark II

One of these announcement dates will also be for the EOS 7D replacement. No word on specs, but it’s suggested the camera/segment will get a new naming scheme.

Will this be the Canon EOS 2400 or 2500?

Only because it had PDAF pixels on the sensor, not because of new pixels or new readout technology.

I would buy the 135L 1.8L IS USM the moment it hits the shelves.

No way, no how, could the replacement 7D be a mirrorless camera.  That would kill it for 95% of the users.

Like it or not, mirrorless is the future. For one BIG reason, cost. An EVF cost less money for the camera companies to produce. Less cost = more profit, simple as that. BTW, this is also the reason why menues are replacing analog controls.

Hard to tell what a Canon or Nikon DSLR replacement will look like. My guess is Nikon will go for a Sony SLT style camera, (with an F-mount), and Canon will do something radical (and replace the EF-mount). Remomber that Canon replaced the FD-mount with the EF-mount, when they went to auto-focus (it could happen again).

The question is not if it will happen, but when it will happen.

As long as the big MP camera blows away the D800, I'm okay with it having the same sensor as the 1DX.  I would hope that a new sensor that would provide them 5 years or more of amazing cameras...

No, it doesn't.  EVFs of good quality are actually quite expensive.  RED sells their Bomb EVF for $3,200:

http://www.red.com/store/products/red-pro-evf

I've tested top-of-the-line consumer EVFs like those in the Sonys against the lowest-end OVFs from cameras like the Canon D1000 and the D1000 won easily in every way.  To get an EVF that's even close to the quality and performance of the 7D or 5D, you're looking at upwards of a thousand dollars in manufacturing cost for the optics and microdisplay, and that's to say nothing of the dramatically larger battery you'll need to feed that energy-hungry system, and the dual processing pipelines you'll need to prevent processing time from causing viewfinder blackout.

The big MP and the new 7D should prove to be groundbreaking.
If not, then I don't know what Canon is thinking.

I don't pay much attention to DxO score, but a lot of people do. Canon's DxO scores suck ... big time. Sucky score = sales loss. Consumer Reports and Motor Trend magazine were effecting sales for your grand parent generation, and it only gets worse with the 'net.

Looking forward to some big mature changes, stabilising the EOS-M range. big pixel and a 7D refresh. Could a EOS-M with a viewfinder and a 7D renaming scheme be one and the same thing?

No way, no how, could the replacement 7D be a mirrorless camera.  That would kill it for 95% of the users.

Totally agree! Mirrorless 7D would be the end of the 7D. I LIKE the DSLR design and OPTIVAL viewfinder...if anyone gets rid of those and goes purely mirrorless with an EVF, I'll NEVER buy one.
