I'm off to shoot the sunrise with my 5 year old camera body, then blow my canon budget on a road bike. Have fun!

Buying a good road bike is possibly even more of a challenge than getting a good camera, there are just so many options!!  ;)

Are you going to get a CANONdale road bike?

lol omg, this killed me

While not appear mythical 7D Mark II, the cheaper 70D will steal sales from the old 7D. ::) If it is not announced until Photokina 2014, then we know that will never exist 7D mark ii. :-X

My "cristal ball" told me, that the first realistic announcement will be around the photokina-time.
There were (maybe still are) around 2 prototypes in the wild @ the olympics and there ist still no final  conclusion about which body will be final.

And the same person thinks that other brands like nikon will be faster than Canon @ replacing their crop highend slr.
Maybe Sony announces an fast SLR in 2014 too.

Maybe he read his tealeaves right.

Has there ever been a 7DII release-date related rumour at the CR2 level? (but as they say, sooner or later, it'll eventually be true lol)

Actually there was a CR3 from Canon themselves about the 7D2 release date.... but it has proved to be semi-wrong. (they said no 7D2 for late 2012 or early 2013, but yes for a 7D2 eventually with late 2013 expected)

The 7D2ii must be coming now.  The stars are aligning.

Isn't it amazing how they coordinate so well with each other, the 1Dx and D4, 5D III and D800 and now 7DII and D9300, all coming within weeks of each other

Will Canon and Nikon only pretend to compete, but actually make agreements to launch their equivalent models at the same time? ??? They act together to maintain the duopoly, as two teams take turns so that only they win the championship every year? ::) Conspiracy theory. :P

Jokes apart, there is much truth, imho, that until Nikon releases their D300s successor (whatever the number) or until Canon gets a solid lead that Nikon are about to do it, there's little incentive for Canon to release a 7D (whatever the name) successor. A Sony A77 successor might be a good reason but, given Sony's numbers in this segment, I'm not so sure it'd be enough.

I agree with many here that a new Rebel is more likely. I'd love to be surprised of course  :)

I would certainly hope that Canon would release a new sensor within the 7D mkII

Given the (albeit limited) history of the 7D line I think that is quite likely the delay for the 7DII. Canon have now manoeuvred the xxD line into a position to allow for a higher end aps-c model that will be twice as expensive as the xxD yet sit just under the cheapest of the FF models. So the delay indicates to me that we are waiting for the new sensor to go with it.

I wouldn't read too much into the replacement of the 300D. Nikon were never able to meet the 7D head on for what ever reason(s). However their continuation with the model has certainly given Canon more sea room for developing the 7DII - and the 7DII is definitely coming because otherwise Canon would not have given the recent models of the  xxD line castrated EOS controls.

You know what? Living in the US and dealing with both phone/internet/tv/cell carriers . . . I'm surprisingly okay if that's the case.  So long as there's no price-fixing involved, go for it  ;D

I'm getting tired of the 'free market' in the US that has equated for so long to the customer being shafted.

Canon is sensitive to what Nikon does. Otherwise we wouldn't have such things as 1D AF in the 5D series...

You also write "the 7DII is definitely coming"... I will believe it when it will be officially announced by Canon. I do hope it will come but so far I don't think that there's any solid evidence that this is the case

I believe next Slr will be a eos rebel/kiss/xxx series camera to replace the eos 700d.  7d replacement might come at photokina. also any word on when will canon replace ef 50mm macro? that is the oldest lens in canon line-up and needs to be replaced soon.

one of the oldest. :)
the 135mm f2.8 soft focus is from 1987 (october) if im not wrong.
and it´s still listed.

not that i need a refresh of that lens....

the 50mm f2.5 macro is from december 1987.

completely forgot about the 135mm soft-focus. although last time I talked with a canon dealer in India, I was told 135 soft focus is not available anymore in stock. probably that lens has been discontinued. even adorama doesnt have that lens listed on their site.

if you want it give me a call. it´s available here in germany. ;)

I dont want it, but a friend of mine was looking for one couple of months back. he bought a used one as new 135 soft focus were not available. In India people are dumping used cameras and lenses at crazy prices just two days back saw an advert for a used 5D mk3, seller was asking for just 95000INR(Divide by 60 for usd). even there is a used 7d with 400 f5.6l for 1,10,000 INR.

Don't trust these deals. Most of the are scams through and through with sellers located offshore. Personally. I buy used stuff only if I can personally meet the seller, inspect the gear & documents, pay cash and walk out with the gear.
Light is language!
