Maybe we will see a new 90D in February, a two year refresh cycle and a new 7D lll in September, a four year refresh cycle.

Something tells me that the leaks about a coming 7DMKIII thi spring could also be an intentional marketing tactic by Canon to try to block to many people from jumping ship at Christmas. Nikon had real heavy promotions for the D500 with a grip and extra battery for a very good price at Christmas.

On the other hand Nikon is probably in the works with a D500s, a smaller refining update, they seems to do that every two years or so after the release of a major new model (also D5s should be on the way as well)

It is a bit risky for Canon to delay this to long, most people would be very happy with a better version of a 80D sensor better AF and bigger buffer (some people seem to need non crop 4k as well, not that I'm personally interested)

Don't worry CR. Noki.....ta will leak specs and images between 7-14 days before release. Until them keep posting "rumors"  ;)

I took more than 500k shots with my 7D2. Blew up its motherboard twice in rigging up odd power alternatives. Loved that thing. But the 5D4 produced better action and wildlife shots - even with its nerfed frames per second.

One of the things people came to expect with Canon releases is that they sometimes blew up their product line heirarchy. The 7D2 came out not long after the 1DX, and had new tech in it that the 1 series lacked. It was plainly a better camera for action and wildlife than the 5D3 of the day. This upset the apple cart a little bit, with a crop body invading some of the market of the full frame cameras. The 6D blew away its superiors in terms of low light focusing. I think it is for this reason that the 6D2 got ambivalent reviews. The image quality is fine, but it not only didn't improve much, but it didn't come anywhere near resetting the 6 series in a place that approached the current 5 series. For the line, this was a step backward. I think people didn't express this well, but this was the motivating factor in people's dissatisfaction.

Back to the 7D3... The sensor improvements shown in the 80D are far from trivial. There will be easily more improvement in the sensor from the 7D2 to the new model than their was in the 5D3 versus the 5D4 (and there was a LOT of improvement there). But let's not get our hopes up too too far. Just because the last release increased the megapixels past the then-seemingly-permanent 18mp barrier doesn't mean the 7D3 will do the same, or that it will again double the 5 series' frames per second, or that it will again improve color noise, introduce a much more silent shutter mechanism, etc., etc. It may indeed not be quite as remarkable an improvement next time around, but the sensor is going to beat the pants off the 7D2, of that I'm certain.

Good or Bad, not sure, however, a delay in the 7D only means one thing, more capabilities of the camera. As presented a few days ago, Canon leaders seeks "innovation" and since "innovation" may probably be higher color depth, higher noise reduction, better AF system... that would benefit us, as users, in the end.

If not the 7DIII, then, I think, something else at the high end.  Canon will not want the year to go by with out a big camera release of some kind.

The defining upgrade of the 7D3 will be the flippy tilty screen. Everyone loves a tilty flippy screen.

It's possible, but Canon generally doesn't go faster than the prior lifecycle because (one presumes) they are taking on so many new product lines in recent years.

And the last two X0D cameras were on the market about 3 years each before they were updated.  So 2 years for a 90D would be rushing it by Canon's track record of late.

Any speculative chance the 7D iii will omit or cancel the anti-alias (low-pass) filter?  I am looking for resolution and considering moving to or adding a future 5DS R ii at some point.

I sold my 7DII, great camera that it was, after buying a 5DSR. The significantly better resolution and IQ and better AF of the 5DSR more than made up for the slower frame rate for my type of bird photography. Dropping the AA-filter is a must for me in a 7DIII.

I think they might just abort it in favor of a full swing to high end mirrorless.

A high-end mirrorless will be nice, but it won't be a replacement for a DSLR (7D in this case) until rolling shutter and blackout are "solved" (mitigated).

So if the 7D3 isn’t coming soon, why did Canadian dealers stop carrying the 7D2?

Where does that say they have stopped carrying the 7Dii?
I recall a few years ago one Australian outlet became well-known for prematurely announcing that Canon had stopped manufacture of various cameras.
