EOS 7D Mark II Coming in March? [CR1]
« on: February 21, 2014, 07:52:38 AM »

We’ve had a couple of communications saying that Canon will announce the replacement to the EOS 7D some time in late March. We’ve had nothing from the usual sources as of yet, and it’s tough to tell whether or not it’s reported rumors fuelling speculation, or the speculation fuelling the reported rumors. It’s the usual chicken and the egg thing.


There hasn’t been much information about specifications for such a camera, and I’m sure Canon will have a massive marketing campaign behind it. If we don’t hear something a bit more concrete soon, I wouldn’t put much stock in the March announcement speculation.


Yesterday we were shown that Canon plans to update the Pixma Pro printers in the near future, those generally get announced with a DSLR, so that’s a positive sign in the right direction.


More to come…

In the grand scheme of things I would rather the 7D-II to arrive perfect, rather than soon.

With that said, I've got travel plans this summer, I want the camera  :-)

Nessie was a hoax. It was not real.... Something mythical that people searched for year after year......

Completely unlike the 7D2 :)

With most buyers probably being in the northern hemisphere, Canon would be indeed well advised to release the 7d2 at least in limited availability before the end of summer - including a 30% premium for early adopters :-> ... my only fear is what most CR headlines will be about once it's actually released, maybe the rumored 5d4?

Lord Lucan has been spotted with a  prototype ;)

Seriously, I find it hard to imagine what the spec. could possibly be that will position it significantly better than a 70D without making it as expensive as a 5D4oops 3?

Maybe the main page headlines.  The forum topics will mostly be about how bad the IQ of the 7DII will be, due to poor DR at low ISO, FPN, etc...all before its even released.  Once it hits store shelves, Aglet will take one shot with the lens cap on, push the exposure four stops, and declare the 7DII to be DOA, which will lead to the inevitable proliferation of predictions of Canon's imminent demise.   

On a serious note, if the 7DII is Nessie, what does that make the 100-400 II?  A Sasquatch-Yeti-Martian hybrid living in Area 51?
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

Having been there and spoken to some brave scotsmen on the shores of the Loch, Nessie is somewhere between CR2 and CR3 for me  ;)

Now that I have a long lens, I need a new body for my quest to take a picture of Bigfoot. Since the naysayers will undoubtably pronounce the af and iq as garbage, this will be the perfect camera. After all, who wants a picture of Bigfoot that isn't out of focus?

If it was coming so soon, there would be leaks, specs and spy shots of it by now.
The 7DII will be here when it's good and proper ready!

Agreed. The 200-400 was being seen at trade shows and all sorts of stuff about half a year in advance. Even if we did have concrete reports it could still just be indicative of a fall release.
