I have a big milestone birthday coming up on May 31 and my wife wants to buy me a special present.
Wonder what my chances are it will be a 7D MKII?

If you are lucky, it will be announced before May 31.... but there can be several months between announced and available, so the odds are very high that you are not getting a 7D2....

maybe an EOS 7D replacement coming in 2020 with an "all new" version of the 2009 sensor???

i´m personally sick and tired to wait for a new canon image-sensor generation, that isn´t a derivate of the 2009 sensor.

5 years. why not 10 years? the 7d does make "ok"-photos. and in 2009 it was a great camera. like others were in the 70s.

canon doesn´t want my money, as it seems. probably, they don´t get it in future times.

I was afraid that would be the case as well.
I bought a 7D the first week it came out in Oct. 2009 but I don't remember when it was announced.

special presents are either 3some and more with several girls or a 1DX, not a 7D Mark II.

True story:  I started saving for this camera 2.5 years ago.  I've not had my 5DMkIII for over a year.  I've started saving again and now have enough for it--want it for the 1.6X crop sensor and birding.

Are you sure you have enough for it?  I mean when Canon came out with the 600mm F4L IS II no one believed it would cost over $10K.  Highly likely Canon will milk our bank accounts once again with new release hype.

+1
I bet: 2500-3000... And if the MPs are lower than 24, the DR just average, the AF not better than the 70Ds - even enough consumers will buy it. Because its out of the 7D - family.
On the other hand, Canon knows that other brands are not sleeping and releasing one camera after another. The new rumored D9300 looks to be an game changer in its class - if you belive the Nikonians. Maybe this is enough pressure for Canon to release an worthy successor. But then they will milk us as much they can...

My 7D wish list
o better ISO performance ie less noise
o f/8 centre point AF
o second memory slot. eg SD

Don't change
o crop factor
o use of CF
o battery

Not interested
o Hinged screen
o Improved flash control

Fantasy section
o  Bluetootooth iPhone interface
    use camera functions, Liveview, tap focus , GPS tag, upload, edit and email photos
o left handed version


Sounds like I want 1D X

In less than 5 months, it'll be 5 years since the 7D was announced and nothing so far indicates that a 7D II will ever be released ... I've lost my interest in it and if it does get released, I most likely will not buy one.

On the other hand, if it never gets released, I most certainly will not buy one :)
