EOS 7D Replacement & Telephoto Lens in September [CR3]
« on: July 01, 2014, 12:39:56 PM »

We’ve been told that NDA/embargo will expire in September for the Canon EOS 7D replacement as well as a new telephoto lens.


Photokina starts on September 16, 2014. So I suspect the embargo date will either be Tuesday, September 9, 2014 or Friday, September 12, 2014. The EOS 5D Mark III was announced on a Friday.


We weren’t given any specs at the time of writing this, or what the new telephoto lens would be. I think everyone is hoping for an EF 100-400 replacement.

It's a CR3 about the fact that the NDA/embargo will expire. That's really it. I wouldn't call this a CR3 about the 7D "replacement" (cleverly worded ;)) itself. Don't get your hopes up too much...all this is is reporting the fact that Canon will be lifting NDAs and allow people to speak freely about certain upcoming products starting in Sept., however we still don't know what those products are. Just that it's the 7D "replacement"...whatever that is...7D II? 3D? 4D? 2D? Something still APS-C? Something maybe APS-H? Something with 10fps? Something with more FPS? It's all still the same old questions...we still don't know anything. We just know now that we WILL know more clearly, but possibly still not for sure, in a few more months. :P

So we should then discount all the sets of rumors and sources that said that there would be no 7D after all, which includes a number of recent major rumors I believe. (unless it's a sneaky wording thing where the 7D replacement won't be called 7D2, then I guess it would they could all have truth)

Several more months of speculating on the specifications.....or if the replacement will end up being an 80D

Fair, but it does confirm that the 7D replacement is coming in September...something that had only been CR2 until this point. And as we've learned with CR2's in the past, that could mean something is years away.

At least now we know when the forums will be flooded with people complaining

Right.
 
To be a CR3, CR guy almost certainly  has some additional information that he can't reveal without the danger of compromising the leaker.  He may post more of it over the coming weeks or months if he finds that someone else has posted it as well.
I do not recall seeing a CR3 that did not happen.  Its very rare to see a solid leak this early for a new model.

Anyone know how NDAs generally work?

Do they usually expire or get lifted before the product is announced, or do companies purposely set the NDA expiration date after their projected announcement date and then lift it once the announcement is made?

I'm guessing the latter. It doesn't seem like they would lift an NDA until they release or announce the product.

So, if the NDAs expire in September, that would be the latest date for a release announcement?

I for one am disgusted that the new camera does not include an integrated popcorn maker and cheese grater.

The important thing is we have an actual timeline for events to happen, rather than the vague "new stuff to be announced" that never does.

Where's my SX60?

You pretty much want the NDA/Embargo to be lifted coincidentally with if not slightly before the actual announcement. Example: Canon wants to announce something on date X. The NDA/embargo would be lifted at the very latest just before the announcement, but likely a day or more before.

The reason for this is if you want the biggest impact for your announcement, you want everyone who was under the NDA/Embargo - photographers, columnists, reviewers, etc. - to be crowing about your product at the same time as your announcement.
