7D now marked as DISCONTINUED at Amazon
« on: July 25, 2014, 11:08:10 PM »
Amazon spilled the beans:
http://www.amazon.com/Canon-CMOS-Digital-Camera-DISCONTINUED/dp/B002NEGTTW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1406343927&sr=8-1&keywords=canon+7d

I bet they didn't ask Canon, so expect them to ... temporarily ... remove the DISCONTINUED wording ;).

Thanks for the heads up. Send that to the admin guy.

I think we'll see the new 7D within a few weeks then! Usually manufacturers notify the retailers a bit in advance so Amazon knows more than us.

Wow, and it doesn't seem like a mis-labeling error either - the bottom of the description pretty much states that it's discontinued so you should check out the 70D instead!

Then again when you hit the 28-135 button the bracketed (DISCONTINUED) vanishes.

We have previously seen reports of discontinued notices, so its not surprising that amazon is finally running out.

Canon has likely had their factory churning out the Mark II's for some time.  It takes a few months to build up a backlog big enough to send stock all around the world.

Canon must be pretty confident that sales will take off.  I plan to pass and wait for the next FF.  I expect a $1799 price, and that's too much for a crop body.  If it were under $1000, maybe.

It's a sure sign that the 7D will soon be replaced with a mirrorless APS-H 1D-style camera called the 3Dx.

I know of one major internet retailer in the Netherlands that hasn't been carrying the 7D for quit a while now. There are two others that still list the 7D and various kits thereof, though.

agreed on the first 2 points.  And like you I will be passing on this - but not due to price - I just rarely find the need for more fps than my 5d3 has (and I shoot on silent mode 95% of the time).  The reach would be nice for some scenarios, but, overall I just don't do the type of shooting the 7d series is geared towards.

I do have to disagree on price though - at least your statement about being interested if it were under $1000.  If it were under 1K it would not be a worthwhile release, no new nothing really, it would be a 70D with weather sealing.  I am hoping it is a 2k+ PRO crop body.  LOL, I will still pass on it because I don't shoot sports or wildlife, but, if it's a 2K body then it will display some of the new tech that will be in the new FF bodies, and that does excite me!

Does this mean a Mark II might be imminent?  Why did nobody tell us?

Canon Direct just lowered the price on 7D refurb bodies to $720.
With free shipping and a 1year warranty that's a pretty solid deal in my view.
