An 'equivalent' huh?   ;)


hah, so maybe both rumors are true, no longer a 7DII in name even if an equivalent is now planned all the same

Ahh ha ha ha. It couldn't have been any other way.

Too bad about the 5D4 not having all the capabilities of a pro APS-C and mid range Full Frame all wrapped up in one.

You never know, maybe it'll still come true.

Bring it on. But how much would Canon ask?

If they don't use 7DmII, they can charge a lot more...

So. Year of the lens and year of the camera.

But will it also be year of the sensor?

Canon has not had one of those years since the 5D2. ::)

Indeed. What if it ends up being the same sensor (at least in generation/noise/ISO) as the 70D?
As much as I'd love for there to be a 7DII with a new sensor that leap frogs over the Sony/Nikon competition (heck or just equals it, like DR and read noise), I'm starting lean toward something not too different to the 70D, and people will still spend their money on Canon - the last stragglers yet to  give up on a 7DII and getting a 5D3 (where they can afford it).
I mean wouldn't any new sensor built on new manufacturing process be in an EOS-1 first?
Hurry up Canon and do something with your sensors! :P

A CR2 rumour from a CR3 source..... a 7D2 equivalent.... YES!!!!!!!!!

I don't really care what they call it, so long as it is what the rumoured replacement is....

Perhaps they will call it George.... and I will hug it and pet it and squeeze it and pat it.....

Wait, aside from people ranting about DR, what exactly is wrong with the 5Dmk3 that has everyone clamoring for a successor?

I'm clamoring for a successor to the 5D3 to be announced, so that the price of the 5D3 will drop. I'd like to pick up a 2nd 5D3 for around $2K, and retire my 5DC.

Check back around 2018. The 5DIII might drop to around $2K by then.

I'd love for them to bring APS-H back, in a smaller body with 10fps it could be like my old 1D mark III without a grip :D

Nahh, look at the price history of the 5D2. The 3 will be down to $2K in two years tops.

They probably don't have one ... That said and after some roller-coaster rumors
about this 7DII or whatever the name, I am pretty happy to see a cr2 for once.
