Canon EOS 7D Mark III Coming First Half of 2018 [CR2]
« on: July 07, 2017, 10:45:54 AM »
We’re told that Canon plans to announced the successor to the EOS 7D Mark II some time in the first half of 2018. The CP+ trade show in February is a logical possibility, although not guaranteed as I’d expect the EOS 90D to come for that show.

The EOS 7D Mark II was announced ahead of Photokina in 2014, which is where we expected a follow-up to be announced in 2018.

While we have no specifications, we are told that the EOS 7D Mark III will come with a few more video bells and whistles, like 4K recording, which at the time of writing this would be the first APS-C Canon camera to have this feature.

My gut says we’ll see an EOS 90D announced before the EOS 7D Mark III, so the “first half of 2018” could mean late Q2.

More to come…

7D Mark II in the first part of next year sets up the 120MP 5DsR Mark II for photokina ;)

Might time up well to replace my 40D, but really moved to using my EOS M most of the time now.

7D3 for 2018 makes sense. But 90D? I wouldn't expect that one before 2019 or late 2018 given the pretty stable three-year cycle that has been going on with the xxD bodies as of late. But maybe CRG knows something I don't...  ???

(Up until the 50D, the xxD release cycle was much faster. But the market was less mature back then.)

Hey CR guy (thread title)  and rrcphoto

7D Mark II in the first part of next year sets up the 120MP 5DsR Mark II for photokina ;)

please correct your obvious mistakes :)

P.S Unless 7D MkII is a camera from the future  ;D ;D ;D

P.S2 I too would like a 7D3 with less noise than 7D2 (everything else is pretty good)

Look at my old posts from last year. i talked about what the 7d3 will be. The SD card wifi is what Canon used to stall the release date back a quarter

Actually a pretty logic time.
Just before the Winter Olympics.

I could be wrong, but I don't recall a single instance where the first mention of a replacement was even close to correct.
Gear: 5D Mark IV, 5Ds, 135L, 85LII, 35LII, 100L, 70-200/2.8L IS II, 16-35/4L IS, Sigma 50mm Art, 24-105 IS STM, Canon 600 EX II-RT (x2), Yongnuo 600 EX RT-II (x3), ORLIT RoveLight 610 RT, and lots of modifiers

If true about the 7D2, this is a shocker, IMHO. 

Canon almost never follows up a product faster than its last refresh -- they've been adding so many new lines to the portfolio that it's virtually impossible to keep a consistent refresh schedule.  Even Rebels -- once an annually updated product line -- have done to a 2 year cycle in recent years.

Projected 7D3 and 90D dates are here, and neither were in 2018:

If true about the 7D2, one might guess the D500 is taking some business from Canon.

Again:  file under 'Shocking' if true.  Wow.

There is a CR3 that a new CR2 will appear for a 7D3 coming Second Half of 2018 only to be replaced by a CR3 about a 7D3 coming First or Second Half of 2019  ;D ;D ;D
