In another forum they suppose >2500$ for the MK 2.  :(   I hope they will be wrong with this rumor

I have a hard time believing that. The 7D was $1,700 when introduced. History of the XXD series was that the new models come out near the introductory price of the previous model. At $2,500, that would be too close to what the 5DIII will be at the same time. I can't imagine what whiz-bang features would prompt me to buy a crop camera that is roughly the same price as a 5DIII. If Canon wants to squeeze money out of a top-of-the-line APS-C camera, my uneducated guess is that it would come in slightly under $2k. I would put the Vegas over/under at $1,899.

No need to worry too much.
We do not know what Canon will announce in the next two months leave alone what if will announce in the entire year...!!!

I doubt Canon will let Nikon have a high megapixel camera and it not for over two years...!!

I hope you will be right.
But there several persons think that the fast AF and fst fps are more worth then 2000€

Guess I'll be spending most of my cash on trips around the globe using my "outdated" kit but still taking great shots... (that's the camera, not me  ;D)

It will be interesting if a 7D MK II has better sensor tech and how that will sit with the 5D / 1Dx - that's a balancing game for Canon. In that respect, I think Nikon have had an advantage being able to implement it across most of their range. Canon has a more tricky introduction. They could bring in something more expensive than a 1Dx (High MP) with better sensor tech without too many issues as it will not have the same high frame rate.

That gives them another challenge with the 7D II - if it matches the AF of the 5D III and has better sensor tech, then will they "hold back" to ensure it does not offer a compelling alternative to the 5D / 1Dx, or will they follow Nikon and accept cannibalism across their ranges? I guess they might, but balance it by pricing it above the 5D III and below the 1Dx with a higher MP body to redress the "balance" in the Pro range...

I'm guessing a 7D II in the autumn above the 5D III and a High MP announced at CP+ 2014
If life is all about what you do in the time that you have, then photography is about the pictures you take not the kit that took it. Still it's fun to talk about the kit, present or future :)

+1

I don't see how many people people will be queuing up for the 7DII if it were even close to the 5D3.

It will, I believe, be for less than the 6D.

Finally some CR2 level news! The 7D Mark II and the 100-400L would be an expected combination from Canon.
As for the rebels, is a new one really needed every year? It doesn't seem like they're upgrading them that much...

1200D, 18mp + Digic 5 = same image quality as 650D maybe wifi for a bit of bling would I think be rather good to great for the base level DSLR offering.
As for AF points who knows what is going through their heads with that one but I’d guess 11 with one cross type. It should be 11 cross but they have screwed up so much higher up the food chain there’s no chance of that.
Whilst they lag behind on sensors they should be really pushing those other differentiators in a system like ergonomics and AF performance and yet these are the things they cripple or are at best inconsistent with in the upgrade paths

With the APS-H seemingly being dead as far as rumors are concerned, there is a void for those who want excellent IQ and the range given by crop sensors. I am betting the 7D II will kick some serious ass, the price notwithstanding.

So glad to hear about this great new source!

I'm off to find some Japanese tourists with cameras! I'm guessing the ones carrying high end equipment have the best intel?

Will report back on my findings!

It will, I believe, be for less than the 6D.

Not necessarily, at least not the starting price. Canon's strategy is to use a ridiculously high release price, then wait until all early adopters suckers paid up, then lower the price, wait some again and repeat until the camera body is phased out. And there will be early 7d2 adopters because of the crop factor, €1000 more or less doesn't exactly matter for many people who are able to afford Canon tele primes.

It would be nice to have an update on the 50mm f/1.4 - at least I am curious about it.


What would be the improvement in a new 50 f/1.4 have over the old one?
As an amateur the current lens works pretty well for me. Took a picture just yesterday. Very low light. Only source was a flatscreen. No NR applied.

Cool shot, but what is that in the foreground! Looks like a cabbage!

Let's see... 100-400 f/4-5.6L IS II, 14-24 f/2.8L, and TSE-90 f/2.8L, and TSE-45 f/2.8L.

That's four, right? :P

Oh grow up!!!! ;D
