More EOS 7D Replacement Buzz Going Around [CR2]
« on: June 09, 2014, 09:35:43 AM »

We’re hearing from more dealers around the globe that the EOS 7D is either “out of stock” or has reached “end of life”. This is all pointing to the obvious conclusion that a replacement to the camera is on the horizon.


We haven’t been told of an exact announcement date, but do expect it in August. If we had to speculate, around August 18 would be our guess.


We have been told that a new STM kit lens is likely with the EOS 7D replacement, along with an L zoom.


No one at CineGear 2014 this past weekend had any insight about a 7D replacement, not even the usual facial expressions when you mention a new product. However, top Canon dealers should be hearing about it soon. We do expect spec relation information to be very tight until well into July.


More to come…

A new STM?  Hopefully, it'll start at 15mm.

Actually, a 15-60ish/2.8 to replace the 17-55/2.8 would be a smashing release along with a 7D replacement and a 100-400L replacement.

But, I suspect it'll be either another 18-55 type cheap kit lens, or a hyperzoom like the 18-135 or 18-200.

I find the naysayer's comments to be quite entertaining....

I expect it to be to the 70D, like the 7D was to the 60D. Better AF, better sealing, a bit faster, and about twice the price. Anything more will be a bonus.

Since my 60D is getting long in the tooth, for me the time is right for an upgrade.

I think you are right but the canon 18-200 desperately needs an update though,

I think this is not a relevant post. Why would CR post this? It is not saying anything new.

But I guess Canon is keeping its secrets very well guarded.

You read my mind. I would love an EF-S 15-60mm F2.8 STM below $ 1000. :-*

Skeptical about a new release, although i want to replace my age old 450D with a new camera by the end of this year.  ::)

I think if you keep your eyes peeled you might actually catch a glimpse of any new Canon stuff during the world cup.  I'm sure you will not be able to tell much by what the camera looks like but I suspect that the new 7D will be there along with a high mega-pixel pro body.

Nice to read, that there is more than speculation.

I'm still suprised, how well Canon is protecting any kind of specs from leaking.
Might be a hint to a really "big thing"... maybe new sensor tech...?

Might also be, that Canon is just playing hide and seek with the competition.
sometimes you have to close your eyes to see properly.

May be an 18-200, but not another 18-55 or 18-135.
They were both released recently in their STM forms within the last 2 years.

I think that the rumor blogs are an excellent way to keep G.A.S. going. It wouldn't surprise me if Canon delegated rumor spreaders to mumble something not very revealing every few months.

The 18-55 and 18-135 are both very good, I really don't think they need replacement. 

A new 17-55 STM would be interesting but I am wondering about the durability of the STM motors compared to USM.  If a lens that sells for $300 goes bad it is not too big a deal but most photographers who buy a $1K lens for a crop camera will have it as their one good lens and if that goes bad after a couple of years of use it would be disapointing especially since Canon only gives 1 year for its warranty.   

Just to throw this out there... If Dual pixel tech is ever going to hit full frame cameras like the 5d4 or 6d2 or 4d then FF will need a compatable STM lens too.

Stepper motors have been used for decades on devices like VCR and has great durability. I think the brake system of USM engines are more subject to wear due to heavy usage.
