No 7D Mark II in 2013? [CR2]
« on: May 06, 2013, 07:59:55 AM »

Only one more body in 2013?

From a good source, we’re told that an EOS 7D Mark II will not be released in 2013. We could get an announcement sometime in this calendar year, but availability will be next year.


The only DSLR still to come in 2013 from Canon is the EOS 70D. The same source does say “several lenses will be coming in 2013″.


2014 will be the year for high-end DSLR cameras from Canon, consider this a down year for bodies.

Heart breaking for me. I am so glad I bought a 1D mark IV. I will be babying it for sure now. Hummmmm.

oh that will make some people unhappy.....

but maybe all this points to a 180µm process in 2014...
the big MP camera and the 7D MK2 both with a new sensor design made with a new manufacturing process.

prototypes could be out... but for mass manufacturing canon needs to build new factorys or update existing ones. and that takes some time.

Disappointed but not 100% surprised

Reinforces my notion to buy what has been released vs waiting for vapor ware (or rumored future products)

I have to say that, if this rumor is true, I am just a little bit disappointed. It would be great to have a better 7D this year but I can still manage another year with my 7D.
Looking forward to what lenses will be released this year. An update of 135 f/2? Or perhaps 50 f/1.4?

I personally hope they wait to release it until after the D400 (or what ever it will be called) comes out so Canon can beat it on pretty much every level like the 7D did the D300s. 

I mean the 7D had been THE BEST cropped sensor camera for a long while and I really hope they make the MK II the best as well.

Now that I have a 5D MK III I don't know if I will get one as I still have my 7D as a backup, but you never know...

I am guessing that getting the new 18 micron process thang is not going as well as they would like... The 7D mk II will probably be the first to be released using the new process, somewhere around 24 MP with ISO up to 102,400... probably the new 3200 ISO will be as good as the old 400 ISO...
What is truth?

Sadly, that's exactly the timing I've been expecting for the 7D2. I was hoping to be proved wrong. Nevertheless, this timing strongly supports the hypothesis that the next APS-C flagship will have a new sensor and, hopefully (but that's me, I'm sure most CR members are going to disagree), no more than 16-18 MP.

I'm sure it's a little disappointing news to those who wants to buy a 7d replacement within the next few months. On the other hand, for those who doesn't plan to do that, it may actually be a good news, since by releasing 7d ii late Canon may use a more innovative sensor and other more advanced features.

Hopefully this doesn't mean that the 70D will be stuck with the 18mp sensor when it it released. I was thinking the 70D and the 7DMkII would share the same new sensor.  Also, surprised that Canon does not have a updated DSLR out as of yet competing with the Nikon D7100.

What in the holy hell is Canon doing?  To many stupid cinema cams and lenses and idiotic mirrorless bodies and lenses?

They're already way, way late to the party and they're delaying again?

We need some low read-noise sensors, some high-pixel-count sensors (cropping is a big deal for me), and some new bodies.  The 5DIII is a great camera, but has high read noise.  The 7D is old, has the old 18MP sensor (not bad, but not outstanding either) and the new AF systems are better.

I want a 7DII with near-zero read noise sensor and a 5DIIIn with nothing new but the low read-noise technology in the fall!

Oh, and while we're at it, VIDEO CROP MODE!!!!  And expanded version with infinite steps and smooth zooming in any resolution would be really, really helpful!
