The Ramp Up to August Announcements is Starting [CR2]
« on: June 05, 2014, 07:37:01 PM »

Northlight is reporting that Canon pro dealers in Germany are being invited to events in July to prepare for August announcements. This is pretty normal, certain dealers in most countries get advanced knowledge of the upcoming gear to prepare for dealer ordering and marketing.


If the pro dealers are involved, you can expect a prosumer DSLR at least. We also expect some higher end lenses to be added to the lineup.

Anyway, the arrival of 7D Mark ii. ::) Who waited a few years, you can wait a few more months until Photokina. ;)

I'm interested in what's coming, but not really wanting a 7D MK II.  APS-C sensors are limited in light response, so a small improvement night happen, but who knows, I certainly hope that something big happens.  At very least, the dual pixel sensor, and better / faster live AF.

Whether or not the 7DII is worth it all depends on whether or not they also put out a full frame camera with similar capabilities. Something full frame, with similar cropping ability (high pixel density) and decent AF would be the ultimate body for me.
(Of course, it would also cost twice as much, so the 7D could still win just on the value basis.)

for me 5Dmk3 AF as a minimum would be required, i don't see the point of a next gen 7D not having this AF system

I mainly do Portrait shooting

I have a 7D but I currently use my dad's 70D because its incredibly excellent DPAF with face detection. I never get out of focus no matter how large the aperture is despite len issue. I don't think anyone can do that with viewfinder despite speed unless you are some kind of professional photographer.

Of cause I am waiting for the 7D2. If I have to say any function that I want most with the 7D2, I would like to have a hybrid viewfinder which can lunch DPAF, with face detection of cause. Sometimes it is difficult to focus only using the display.And with a higher pixel cmos and Digic 6 is enough for me.

Dying to hear about the 7D replacement too, but what happened to the Powershot announcements like the SX60?

It will be another rebel/kiss/XXX D announcement. 750D will be what Canon will announce and probably still using the ancient 18MP sensor from 7D.  >:(

To me, the importance of the 7dii announcement is that the technology from that camera eventually ripples down to ##d and Rebels ###d series ... and may be not be all that long of an eventually.

7D M2 would be nice but I hope they offer something like 1Dx with crop sensor.  Same electronics / ergonomics as the 1Dx.  Now that would be VERY NICE.   ;D

I gave up waiting.  Saved for so long that I had enough for a 70D and a 6D with 24-105mm.  Love both cameras, no regrets.....

For me it would be 7D ergos (add a grip if you need), but same FPS, AF, and electronics as the 1Dx.

My 6D is my quality camera, the 7D2 would satisfy my need for speed!
