NDAs supposedly expire on Sept 5. Can't wait to find out what the actual specs are, though I doubt we will have any idea regarding sensor performance for a couple weeks after the announcement (at least). We need the standard suit of test scenes from various reviewers for that.

I would like to see an Exmor like sensor just to put an end to those threads  :P

But I'm very curious to see what the price is going to be. If it's in the stratosphere I'm not going to be interested in replacing my current 7D for sports. If it's priced similar to the original upon its release, then 65 point AF / 10 fps...if those are the specs...could certainly tempt me.

Announcements are made about 1-2 weeks before the week a event opens, Canon wants a day when other major camera makers are not announcing.  I suspect that someone coordinates dates.  Friday is not a common date for announcements, but other announcements have been made on Friday.

Didn't realize that, thanks.

I just want it over...seriously sick of hearing all the 7D fan boys.

Either way i am waiting on my purchase for fall, 70D will go on sale and the 7Dii will have reviews out by then.

Almost. I pushed the image 9,001 stops and there was shadow noise in the black lettering. He only gets second place because the image wasn't produced with Exmor  ;D

No, he just lacks a sense of humour :).

After years of hype and expectation, an earth shattering game changer was expected, but reality is probably going to be somewhat different  ;)

Expected by whom?  Expected based on what facts?  I expect a 7DII with a couple more MP, DPAF, substantially better better AF.  All of that is completely consistent with Maeda's statements (e.g. a semi-pro APS-C camera that has evolved into new territory).  If you want to treat rumor and misinterpretation (lots of people think Maeda said 'revolutionary, but he didn't) as fact, you have only yourself to blame if you're disappointed.

No, he just lacks a sense of humour :).

Not true.  I laugh at troll posts like yours, dilbert's, et al., quite often.
