New thought: AF-point linked spot metering. I was just rereading TDP's 1dx review, because I like to taunt myself like that. And I realized that's listed under "1dx advantages over 5d3". Any chance of the 7d2 getting this?

I somehow doubt it because the reason why the 1dx has it and the 5d3 hasn't is the different metering system - so for the 7d2 with supposedly a more complex af system as the 7d Canon would also have to add another completely new metering system. Of course they could if they wanted to, but one the one hand it'd drive up the costs for sure.

Ah. Fair point. I assumed dedicated processor for AF, forgot the 1dx had one for AE. Too many letters...

oh well, I'll keep dreaming.

I know i am kinda late to the party but I keep trying to buy a 7D but keep stopping myself...The current 7D just doesn't out do my 1D Mark III so i guess i can't justify the regular 7D until I have gotten an upgrade. Why why why does this have to come out in the fall. I'd buy it right now like i bought the 5DM3 last March. Oh God I'd be so happy if they released it 2 weeks from now. Heres to unrealistic hope.

Great quote comes to mind: "The best time to buy a new digital camera is when it's NEW."

I wouldn't buy a 60D, T4i, or 7D today. They will all be replaced soon.
Wait or buy a 6D, 5DIII, 1Dx etc.

I would consider buying a 7D if the price on new units falls well below $1000.  It might, it might not.  I'll probably just buy a 6D by late summer, and keep my 50D (its noise isn't that much worse than the 7D, and the AF is way more usable than all the unfairly negative criticism would appear).  But I want the 6D/24-105 combo for the "nice price", which hasn't quite happened yet.  It's been close once, supposedly.  However, if I start seeing used 6D's going for $1150 and below, then I think I'll just spend more and get a new 5D3/24-105 instead.  The only used 6D's on amazon so far, are listed the same as the new price...or else within $100 of the new price (~1700-$1850).  Of course it's only been out three months.  I am more price conscious than many on here, mostly because I don't make $10k a week from doing photography.

That's all well and good, but just because the (e.g) 7D is old tech doesn't mean you can't still take great pictures with it. If the buying price was the same as when the product was new I would agree with you, but if the buying price of those bodies has dropped due to newer models being imminent, why pay full whack for the latest and greatest? There are some that need and are prepared to pay full price for the latest tech. Fair enough. But that isn't everybody.

If I was in the market to buy a 7D, I'd buy one used but in great condition. Why take the depreciation hit when it's so close to being replaced. Second hand units in the Uk are trading around the £850 mark. New copies are around the £1050 mark. When the 7DII comes out, both will be worth the same due to depreciation so get the S/H copy because that's already depreciated a chunk.
I'd be interested in how good the rumoured 7DII's high iso performance is when compared to the current 5DIII. The old 7D is pretty bad over iso 400 in RAW and is it's greatest deficiency. The camera needs to vastly improve in this area to be competative. It also needs a better AA filter, I found the 7D's to be overy strong. Which is good for video, but yeilded softer still images when compared to other Canon DSLR's. Other than that, it's a great camera and it still has some very compelling features. Unfortunatly it's sensor is it's weakest point.

+1 The 5D classic is even older but at the right price with extra money to burn I'd still buy it again today and leave it plugged in at the studio, even if it's old and used. Almost every camera has it's own distinct character in the images they take. The original 5D is legendary and I still prefer the look from it's images from lower ISOs, it also has better looking analog'esque grain than a lot of the new full frame bodies like the 5D mark III. It can't keep up for tech today, but I wouldn't consider it completely useless. I'd probably go as far as saying getting any camera is okay if you can still buy new batteries for it.

Key question - will the current crop of cameras work for you.  By this I mean will they have sufficient IQ, approriately weatherproof, highest enough light sensitivity, .. So you can get the picture you want.   After many people do great work with a phone camera.

Now if lust over the latest and greatest, perfectly okay to do so,the wait (and wait and wait) as something new is always rumored. ;D ;D

WOW! ... 22 pages of posts for a camera whose specs are not even out ... is that indication of the popularity of 7D? ... there has not been this much speculation for the replacement of D7000 (i.e. D7100) coz according to Ken Rockwell "D7000 is the best APS-C DSLR ever" (I know the name Ken Rockwell invites lots of hate around here. Anyway, the number of posts here on 7D replacement, for me, is an indication of how popular it really is.

Rockwell invites hate because he is a douche (you ever seen him in a video?), and because he calls just about every newest camera on the market the "Best whatever EVER!". I mean, how can you trust a guy who can't be truly objective, and just gravitates towards the newest thing and drools all over it whenever the newest thing hits the street?  :P (And that is nothing to say of the frequent rogue inaccuracies and blatant misrepresentations and incorrect statements he regularly makes, about ANY and ALL brands of camera.)

I don't think Rockwell gets so much hate as he does envy. Lots of folks here know more than he does, yet he's making a good living spouting off and pretending to be an "expert."

For me, I feel sorry for him. I can't imagine choosing such an undignified way to make a living (one level below "professional wrestling," I guess). And I won't get into pimping his family. Makes me shake my head and feel sad.

I also think he does a disservice to many people who don't know much about photography.

Doubt that they will be able to hit 24 MP and 10 FPS.

Maybe 18 MP and 10 FPS or 24 MP and 6-8 FPS.

I think people have made certain assumptions about the 1D X's dual DIGIC 5+ DSP's processing speed based on incorrect calculations. Most of the numbers I've seen seem to be based on a 12fps frame rate...but remember that the 1D X has a mirror-lockup 14fps rate as well. Additionally, most people forget that Canon RAW images include a bunch of masked off pixels around the border of the sensor. The actual pixel count is 19.3mp, rather than 18mp, when it comes to computing the data processing throughput rate. Given that:

The 1D X has at at least 33.8MB per RAW image assuming 19.3mp real pixel count. At 14 frames per second, the processing rate of each DIGIC chip would have to be at least 236MB/s (~473MB/s total, vs. the 144MB/s or 165MB/s per DIGIC I've seen calculated by others.) Accounting for some additional overhead, metadata included in the images, etc. I would say the processing rate of each DIGIC 5+ chip to be at least 250MB/s. That is 500MB/s total processing power.

If the 7D II has a 24.1mp sensor, its real pixel count is probably around 25.8mp. At 10fps, that is 225MB/s per DIGIC chip. That is actually LOWER than the data rate of the 1D X at its full 14fps speed. I see absolutely no problem for the 7D II, assuming it continues to use the same Dual-DIGIC approach as the 1D line, and the same generation and version of the DIGIC chips. Actually, a higher frame rate would probably be possible. Assuming an 11fps frame rate, the maximum throughput is still less than 500mb/s (although, with any additional overhead like metadata, dual DIGIC5+ might not actually be fast enough.)

I'll be rushing out immediately to pick up a new 7D MK II.  What all the hub-bub is about regarding the original 7D is that the complete lack of any high ISO usage, renders images useless and totally unusable for any purpose, as this sample taken at ISO 3200 on my original 7D, clearly shows...  7D MK II please get here soon!  :-X
