Personally I'm hoping for an NTFS-like file system that supports files over 4 GB, and I expect more megapixels.

Didn't Canon license exFAT, which supports files larger than 4GB, and implement it in existing models, like the EOS 60D ?

As much as i feel like a 7dMII would be the perfect camera for me if it were FF it seems like the schedule would be completely wrong for Canon's MO. The 1Ds is four years old and they are going to update an 18 month old camera?

With reguards to the 7d mk 2's potential shooting speed one one thing to consider is that the ID may well be FF by the time it comes out so less of a direct competision.

Personally I wouldnt be shocked to see a 7D mk2 released next spring if only to allow it to preview the new processor on crop along with any improvements to the sensor. If the 650D and 70D(if the xxD line carrys on) preview the sensor first its surely going to impact 7D sales heavly.

So now that the 1D X is out, what to expect from the 7D II?
I say:
  • APS-C 18 MP
  • 45 AF points
  • 9 fps RAW, 10 fps JPG
  • ISO 100-12800, expandable to 51200
  • dual DIGIC 5 (not 5+ and no dedicated AE/AF processor)
  • 3.2-inch LCD 1040k, maybe articulated
  • multiple exposure modes
  • video recording with file splitting
  • wave motion cleaning
  • single CF slot
  • no built-in GPS or WiFi
1D IV, 5D III, 5D II, 16-35L II, 24-70L II, 24-105L, 70-200L IS II, 300L IS, Σ 50, Σ 85, 1.4x III, 580EX II, 600EX-RT

I have a 7D and an 1D Mk IV and I use the 7D more when I shoot sports just because the crop gets me in closer and I don't lose much for what I gain. Honestly, it's nearly perfect and the only things I really want are a little faster processing of RAW to keep it from bogging down (yes, I use a 600x card) and better ISO performance in the 800-3200 range. Everything else would just be cake.

Looking at the 7D release cycle (of which there isn't one, obviously  ;) ), I'm guessing if it's a single-digit (higher end) EOS, it'll be on a 3 year release cycle (similar to the 5D, and close to the 1D).


If that's the case, that would make it due for a refresh in September 2012.  However, that obviously sits just after the London Olympics and Euro 2012.  This makes me wonder whether Canon would consider a release prior to this in order to cash in on sales for those events.  Whilst I know it's not THE professional sports camera, as mentioned on here a lot, it is used by a lot of people for such things, with the APS-C giving the extra reach often preferred by sports shooters.  I know Canon have just announced the 1DX, however I think that will truly sit outside a lot of peoples budgets (other than the high end pro shooters).


Just my 2p!

I would think it just sits inside the budget of professional sports photographers who would shoot at the Olympics though. Just because of this I would actually think Canon will wait until after to get a couple of more sales from folks who would otherwise have gotten the 7D MarkII instead. (That is if the 7D will remain the fast APS-C camera of Canon. Who knows if the 1DX was the only curve ball Canon threw)

I don't think Mark II will have 45AF from (or improved) the previous 1D. More like a highly improved 19AF system, they still need to milk as much money as possible like all other companies.

18MP sounds reasonable, perhaps 21, definitely APS-C. I mean why would they switch the sensor already in the second version.

8 - 10fps is just amazing, I couldn't ask for more in this price range. Its ISO performance is fine at 3200, especially at concerts and sports, though sometimes it's a bit too noisy. One stop improvement would be really nice!

I don't think Canon will announce any speed monster before Olympics, 1DX should have its glory for a long time.

Photokina would be the best place to announce it, along with a 650D and 5D Mark II some time before that.

If it is capable of 12 fps then nobody will buy the 1D Mark IV anymore.
Personally I'm hoping for an NTFS-like file system that supports files over 4 GB, and I expect more megapixels.

NTFS will never come to cameras (licensing & too complex).

But there is exFAT for this purpose:

If it was my dream that came through.
My wishlist for a 7D or another camera would be this.
APS-C
25-30 MP ( I need something because i want to crop and get a great result for printing large pictures )
Great iso up to 51200.
Don`t need a camera with many pictures in a second
State of the art autofokus system
Weather proofed ( same body as the 1D )
Autofokus up to f.8
Electronic view finder. ( if this is the right name in English )
Built in Battery grip
Build in flash trigger
Build inn GPS

Here it is a picture that i have cropped and used Interpolation to get the best results that i can. But i also wanted it even closer. So you can see for yourself what i mean. Because this was cropped to 2,4 MP from 10,2 MP on 1D mk III. So if i had a bigger megapixel camera i could cropp more. And then i could have the picture big enough for me to have a 60x40 print

I think a 7D Mark II will be announced in fall 2012 and available in spring 2013

Probably some specs like:

  • APS-C 21 MP
  • 19 AF points (maybe more enhanced)
  • 9 fps RAW, 10 fps JPG
  • carbon fibre shutter
  • ISO 100-12800, expandable to 51200
  • dual DIGIC 5 (no dedicated AE/AF processor)
  • 3.0-inch LCD 1040K
  • wave motion cleaning
  • usb 3.0
  • double CF slot

Or it just may be wishful thinking. I am just curious who is able to make the closest prediction  8)

I still see the 5D coming out in November (3 year November cycle).  The 7D could either come out in the Spring or Fall; I think Photokina 2012.  Either one would be a nice addition.

5D key feature 25-30MP

7D key feature 8 FPS

I plan to get both of the models hopefully they will have some on CLP soon after launch.  I hope there is at least a year gap in between them so I can have time to save up.

I wouldnt be that supprized to see the 7D inherit the 1D mk4's AF system and generally shift up in the market a bit, seems like it could solve a few problems.

Offer an alternative to the 1DX for 1D users who can't afford it and/or want a crop factor.

Keep it above the 5D mk3/3D/6D in terms fo AF if any of them inherits its old AF system.

Open up more of a market for the 70D which could get its old  xxD build quality back if AF became a larger differentiator between it and the 7D.
