Canon U.S.A Redefines Ease of Use for Left-Handed Digital SLR Photographers with the EOS 7D L

Lake Success, N.Y., April 1, 2013 - Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging, today introduced a revolutionary new camera that finally addresses the needs of left-handed photographers worldwide: the Canon EOS 7D L Digital SLR camera. Based on the highly successful EOS 7D, the EOS 7D L features a reversed ergonomic design which left-handed photographers will fall in love with. Whether it’s shooting at eight frames per second (fps), focusing with Zone AF mode or recording 24p Full HD video, the EOS 7D L DSLR camera satisfies the most rigorous professional requirements with durability, flexibility, customizable controls and impressive image quality.

To support production of the EOS 7D L, state-of-the-art manufacturing lines developed for the classic EOS 7D were reproduced in mirrored orientation. “Canon has been a world leader in innovation for over 65 years – and the EOS 7D L is another innovative product that we are proud to have associated with that heritage,” says Yuchira Izukio, executive vice president, CMOS Imaging Development, Canon U.S.A.

It would probably sell ok if they actually made this. If that happened, it would be interesting to see sales numbers relative to right handed ones, as it may indicate if photographers fit the ratio of the general population or not. However it could be skewed if there aren't other models available so ending up drawing more than its share.

Really? We're all 12 years old now? *sigh*

Okay, just because it's a joke, doesn't mean we can slack off people:
I'm switching to Nikon.
Canon Rumors is presently creating photographer shortages in Middle Earth (all the trolls emigrated here)

Funny. All the lens controls would also have to be reversed.

And as expected, the same damned 18mpix sensor again.
Fed up with brandism.

What about the BG-E7L Battery Grip? 

7D + 7DL would be nice for a stereo 3D setup.
