interesting pricing dilemna for Canon marketeers.  How close to the full frame pricing model can a "professional" crop body skate?  Given that the 7D was introduced shy of $1800 and all Canon "new" products have been
substantially higher than the predecessor, you would predict a $2250-2500 announce price.  That would overshadow the 6D, but perhaps could be justified as a "mini" 5DMkII if it had similar or improved features.  There's a bottom set by the new 70D at $1300 and you could argue that a 7D could be slotted in between the
70D and the 6D at the $1600-$1800 price point.  Time will tell us just how "proud" Canon is with it's latest
offering.

If it has my predicted feature set of 24mp, 10fps, & 61 Pt AF. Easily 2,499$...

$1700-1800.

Don't expect the 7DII to be the successor of the 1DIV.
It will be the 7D successor and will be priced the same or slightly more than the 7D.

A little surprised so many think it is going to be so reasonably priced considering some of the "mini 1D X" posts we have had over the past few months.

Plus if this is going to be a "flagship" as in a APS-C flagship should that not (in part) make it more expensive than the 5D Mark III?

Expect 7D MII to be close to 2500 unless Canon goes the route of mini-1Dx. I think it will start high and then within 6 months drop.   Might as well extract as much money from all those who must have it right away

It will be $1799.00 US when released.... but keep in mind that I have a perfect record when predicting camera release prices.... wrong every time!

This may be bollocks logic but 1dx = 2 * 5dIII in price, so 7dII might be 2 * 70d in price ($2399), if we're going with the concept of parallel full frame and crop lineups (Rebel < 70d < 7dII ~~ 6d < 5dIII < 1dx).

I'm with you Don.  I think it will definitely come in within the $1500 - $1900 dollar range in the poll.  Toward the higher end as you  suggest.  That will put it several hundred over the original 7d release price but will keep it under the $2,000 range where it should be.  No need for Canon to abandon that range between the 70d and the 7d... it's a range that just makes good sense... At least my wallet thinks so!  Hope we're right! 

As a side note, I was off by $100 on the 70D, I was $100 too high... Anyway, at that range the new 7D Mk II will still hold the slot as the APS-C Flagship for Value added and price!

Here's to hoping!!   ;D

I see that as a good price with the 24-105mm Kit lens! ::)

This is actually a good point. Canon may actually think it's a $16-1700 camera, but they'll price it at $21-2200 in that case, because early adopters will pay it, and others will wait 6 months for it to be $1800.

Same thing happened with the 5DIII and 6D.

Kind of interesting that many think it will be $2000+.

It seems Canon has trained us to expect the price bumps and still buy despite the howls.

I'm hoping for this feature set too...I'd happily drop over $3k on a comprehensively specced 7D2.

Heh, I like that the first option starts at "$0". :D I wonder if a better range might have been $500-$1499 or something like that.

Anyway, I'm very curious to see how this one turns out. Its clear more people think Canon is either going to needlessly suck them dry with a higher price, or bump the model up to a higher tier worth of the price...but it will be interesting to see if it lands in the same spot as its predecessor (and whether it lands there with a significant upgrade in featuerset/capability or not.)
