7D Mark II for Photokina? [CR1]
« on: December 28, 2011, 06:14:12 PM »
7D Mark II I’m told along with others that a 7D Mark II will be one of the big items Canon shows at Photokina 2012 in Cologne, Germany.

I’m told the camera will be APS-C, even though there have been murmurs about it being APS-H.

B&H Deal on the 7D Speaking of the 7D, B&H has a deal on it kitted with the EF-S 18-135 IS for $1575 shipped (USA). (Buy)

Woohoo!  I bloody hope so! That would make my year :)  Finally I'm approaching the level of saving needed to buy something new :)

it makes sense that it would remain APS-C and the flagship crop body.

looks like it could be an expensive year for me with a new 5D and 7D model coming out
I hope they bundle it with the 17-55 f2.8 IS and not some other bizzar lens like they did with the 7D

I'm very interested to see where they go with this one since it's the only remaining zD with a crop sensor. If they did happen to go with an APS-H, do you think it would be a recycled 1D mkIV sensor or a new one? hmmm ??? I think they really need to separate this one from the zzD line.

2012 will be a good year for those looking for new body or bodies.

Just picked up a new 7D body for $1100.  I bet the new 7D M2 will be at least $1599 for body alone.

it makes sense that it would remain APS-C and the flagship crop body.

- Agreed.

I'd expect a relatively minor update, the other models are still catching up to the 7D features.  Probably nothing a current 7D owner would want to upgrade for.

New Battery, new video features, larger LCD, digic V, and a lower MP sensor.

I hope they leave the battery the same I want them to be interchangeable with the 5DII. the current battery is awesome anyway (not broke dont fix it)

As far as a Mark II 7D goes:

the only thing I would look to improve on my current 7D is the low light / high ISO performance, other than that I have no issues at all. very hard to fault the 7D and very hard to decide what to upgrade.. lower MP might be an idea? the 15mp on the 50D is really rather good...

Its been "top of the crops" for two years now, so until Nikon brings a D400 to the table, they sure don't need to rush out a 7D II.

If they use APS-H it needs more megapixel (18mp APS-C is about 27mp ASP-H), a descent crop mode for APS-C and the ability to use EF-S lenses. APS-H doesn’t seem likely, but not many people predicted an 18mp FF successor for both the 1D and 1Ds.
If they put a descent AF in with the ability to autofocus up to F8 it would be a great wildlife camera.

Wow I hadn't even considered canon doing something like that, While I think that would be absolute nirvana I cant see them doing it. I think even in Nikons line only the D3s and D3x do the automatic crop when using DX lenses, i'm not sure about the D700 as I havent used one.

Very unlikely, but man that would be sweet! 
1DX, 24mm f1.4L II, 35mm f1.4L, 50mm f1.2L, 85mm f1.2L II, 135mm f2L, 24-70mm f2.8L II, 70-200mm f2.8L IS II :  D800, D4, and a whole bunch of Nikon lenses

It appears Canon is really taking Nikon head-on: 5D2 vs D800, 7D2 vs D400. And Nikon is pitching their D4 against Canon's 1DX. Interesting times.

However, I'll like to see Canon's response to Nikon V1/J1 and Nikkor wide angle lenses (both primes and zooms).
