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.
