Not a surprise... Suddenly here in France its price has seen a 250€ drop off in FNAC store, just under 800€ !

Wow!  Still £950 in the UK (through official channels, though some import sites are listing it for a shade under £570).

Still looks like the 7D2 will be ariving too late for me to use on holiay though :-(

If you pre-order, and its announced in August, you should have one by December.

Unfortunately I need it for Seotember.  Hey ho

Buckwheat is dead.

Any news on Elvis, Janis Joplin, JFK, Lincoln, or Jesus?

Rumoring EOL for the 7D is akin to any of these... It has been in the ground for a while

I'm so sad to hear I only have mere days left with my 7Ds as their "end of life" approaches.  I guess the 2 bodies can make a nice pair of bookends and complement the door stop that I made from my 5D Mark II.  ;)

Interesting... don't they normally have an upgraded version in place well before the EOL for a particular product is announced?  Just an observation.. could this mean that there will be no direct replacement for the 7D?

Yeah surprising. Maybe a surprise announcement mid-June during World Cup (for more general exposure than a camera show gives these days?) for a July 1st in stores (7D2) (in time for many summer vacations and sports and all fall sports?)???

I seem to recall people were predicting it would appear at the Winter Olympics in various pre-production forms, but nothing came of it. I will believe this one when someone says they have seen it. Meanwhile, I'm saving for it and the Sigma 300-600 sport.

Not surprising..... Sales of the 7D have plummeted since the 70D came out and my guess is that they have jot made new ones for a while and internal stock is low. With the delays in the 7D2, there might even be a gap between when they run out of 7Ds and the mark 2 version is released...... That would certainly get the  comments flowing from forum members....

The 7D is so old that it's been end of life in the market place for a long time. It's been said before, it's not the camera which is dated, but the sensor inside it. It's seriously behind in iso ability and clarity at 100%. Sure the AF could do with a tweek, but I found the 7D's array to be very good.

IF this rumor is true, the 7DII unfortunately is too late for my next trip to Norway (starting in 10 days ;-) ). Got my battered 7D Mk I and 5D3 already packed.

Btw my 4 yrs old 7D really doesn't show any signs of coming to its life's end. It survived a really hard crash on a rock and still is going rrrrr... My wife's Nikon 300D, same age, same hard use in rugged environment, died past year. First it started to throw off pieces, then its mirror got stuck @ only 90.000 shutter actuations. Cost of repair would exceed the camera's value by far. I wasn't surprised to read at DPR that Nikon had to save about 18 Mio US-$ for D600 warranty repair/replacements. Looks really like Nikon has a serious quality issue. Sad to say as an old Nikon F-series fan - still love to use my FM-2, one of the best SLRs Nikon ever made.

Sigma 300-600? Did I miss something? I only know the 300-800 Sigmonster (+ Sigma's even more monstrous 200-500/2.8).

We shouldn't be surprised Canon is taking so long with the 7D2 -- after all, the original is nearly indestructible:
