Both 70d and esp. d7100 are very good crop cameras and the 7d2 will have to excel in multiple categories to be recognized (phase-af, video af, resolution, fps, durability, ...)

They way I look at it is, if Canon makes a 7D2 then they do, if they don't then no worries. Fortunately my 7D and 40D fit my shooting needs so I really don't need to upgrade anytime soon, unless I go full frame and then I'll get a 5D3.

The fact that Nikons flagship APS-C body is the D7100, Canon may just call it quits with the 7D line and go for a camera that is more video orientated instead. The 70D packs a lot of features and performance. The V2.0 firmware update gives further reason to believe that Canon may be looking at other options than a 7D replacement, which could also explain why there hasn't been any real information regarding one. With the other cameras, there has always been some information leading to an announcement within a reasonable amount of time afterward. We have been hearing rumors after rumors for over the past couple of years and nothing sounds really plausible.

Who knows. I am just glad Canon DOES make awesome camera gear I can use today. I'm gonna go shooting this weekend!

Canon 6D, 5D2, 7Dv2.03, 50D, 40D, T1i, XTi...XT (& lenses, flahses), various powershots... You get the idea... I have a problem. :)

Wife shoots Nikon, D7000, D7100, (lenses and flashes)... we constantly tease each other that our cameras are better than each others!

Conversation overheard in the men's room at the Canon marketing department meeting:

Marketing expert one:  "We can't let the 7D Mark 2 threaten our full frame sales, so let's make sure it still has a noisy sensor."

Marketing expert two:  "Dude!  I have a great idea, you know that warehouse full of leftover sensors from the T2i?"

A 7D-II will not particularly change the look and feel of your holiday photos. That can easily be served using any of Canon's current line up.
Hrm, color me skeptical that a Rebel can shoot with an aperture / ISO / shutter / AF combo capable of taking shots of a moving kid indoors.  Hell, the 7D can't, my 5D2 sure can't.  Maybe a 1DX but at rather more $ than a 7D2 would expect to command.

In March 2012 Canon had its first public launch of the Canon 5d MKIII at "Focus on Imaging" held at Birmingham NEC in the UK. That show has been replaced by The Photography Show and this will be its first year and Canon has been ramping up its publicity for it. So I would not be surprised to see a pro style camera shown their even if like the Canon 5dMKIII it goes on sale a bit later.
Canon 5DS, Canon 6D, Canon 6D MKII,16-35 f4L IS USM, 17-40 f4L USM, 28 f2.8, 24-70mm f4L IS USM, 24-105 f4L IS USM, 100mm f2.8L IS USM, 70-200 f2.8L IS USM II, 70-300 f4-5.6 IS USM, 50 f1.8 STM, 100-400mm f4.5-5.6L IS USM II, 1.4EX III, EOS 760D, EF-S 10-18mm f4.5-5.6 IS STM & others.

Self-criticism marketing expert one: If 7D Mark II has not much less noise than old 7D, D7100 will seriously threaten their sales. :o

Self-criticism marketing expert two: But T2i was one of the biggest hits of sale between DSLR cameras, and do not want produce expensive sensors Dual Pixel AF, if we can "rehashing" old 18 megapixel sensor with other budget systems focus for Live View. :P

I don't know how many people out there are waiting for this Camera. It's a very very long wait now. It is still really surprising still not to have a CR3 news on this.

I've really wanted a 7D2 to be released by canon ... Tired of waiting I got a 5d3 in October 2012. Now I'm not sure what the 7d2 will offer which will make me get one after having been spoilt by the 5d3.
I took a hiatus from CR for a year and a half. The discussions haven't changed much. Excellent information is still being shared while people bitching about Canon cameras are still bitching and haven't moved on to Sony

I also got the 5D MKIII in October 2012. I wasn't thinking of getting rid of my 7D before the release of a 7D MKII but I did. Now I am not waiting for 7D MKII because it will have less IQ than my 5D MKIII. I am looking for buying a 6D that equals the IQ of my 5D MK III and being an excellent travel/street/landscape/portrait backup camera.

No. I just know there is testing prototypes. We are not sure that there will be a 7D mark ii camera someday. :-\

Mark I just saw the bird photos at your site. Impressive! How did you persuade your bird models to pose?  ;D

They are quite complacent once the cat has finished with them. :)

Seriously, I am so pleased that you describe them as models posing, as that is part of my goal. To take portraits of birds as I would a person, trying to make them look more like individuals than a "type."

Anyway, several of the songbirds I got by attending bird banding sessions, where volunteers net and then band birds during the migration seasons. The banders were very nice and let me take close ups of the birds before they are released.

I'm another 5D3 convert who's slightly baffled by the appeal of the 7D2 and to some degree anything other than the EOS M, if anyone's going Crop!

Having said that, I've just bought myself a Grey 70D (for the record, £626 and some pennies from Panamoz!! Best I've found since ProCameraShop crawled up its ass and died)

The 70D in its solid, light-ish 7fps body is a high-res 1.6x extender for shooting birds, wildlife and Roller Derby alongside the 5D3, when the drop in IQ etc is workable and a reasonable compromise... outside of distant Wildlife, I enjoy working with people and going-ons.

The EOS M 22mm f/2 is a beautiful B&W shooter at High ISO for low light and in regards to street shooting it has to be a contender for the best deep-enough-with-shallow-pop camera (touch screen focussing "ftwffs!!1") ever, imho...

If someone tells me they've got the cash for a 7D/70D/60D/xxxD all I'm thinking is "dude, get a 5D1/6D/5D3, you're not interested in shooting birds, you twonk!“

The appeal of a >7fps tank for non extreme-distance shooting is beyond me...

Also, I might recommend a 100D/SL1 or 400D/XTi if someone's desperate for a viewfinder - couple it with the non-IS 35mm f/2, shoot B&W, magical! ;D

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

Completely unlike the 7D2 :)

Or the "EOS 3D" :)

"dude, get a 5D1/6D/5D3, you're not interested in shooting birds, you twonk!“

... or macro, I find my 60d works better then the 6d since it's got more working distance (100L) and you don't want thin dof anyway

... or non-raw video since the 70d has dual_pixel video af (but no Magic Lantern (yet), doh)

... or working at add odd angles or on tripod, the swivel screen of 60d/70d is invaluable near ground level

... or non-hss flash photography, 60d/70d/7d all have 1/250s x-sync, 6d only 1/180, and this is noticeable

Touché! I'll admit, after shooting the 60D for a year or two and "Going Full Frame" very soon after the 6D dropped, there's a very good chance I'd have gone for it over the 5D3 had it came with the flippy-floppy screen... and I can even be quoted as having said "the only reason I'd trade my 60D for the 7D would be to sell the 7D to fund another 60D with cash left over" ;)
Regarding all of the above, though... WiFi monitoring on the 6D for tough angles and "selfies"? Nice...
I've also recently purchased and am yet to try out wee adapters which allow me to plug my Android Phone into my 5D3, there's apparently an App which does monitoring, shutter release etc! I digressss... perpetually...
I don't know if I'll ever use video autofocus, despite it seemingly being THE selling point of the 70D, though touchscreen focusing is a fun/useful feature for stills on the EOS M!

This isn't what this thread's about at all, is it? Heh... I still personally don't really see the appeal of a 7D I, II ooor III ;)
