If this is credible, then Canon is on the right track.  The 7D SHOULD be an APS-C 1DX, there are probably thousands of customers that don't want or need FF but DO want or need high performance.  I would definitely upgrade my7D if the performance and sensor improvements are there.  I think a 5DIII/7DII Combo would be A damn near perfect combo.  Where do I sign? :D

After using 5D III, I properly will not go back to crop sensor anytime soon. ;)

I've used a 5D3, but would rather have an APS-C camera. Different strokes for different folks.

The big question is: are we going to see big improvement in low ISO dynamic range?

Without any improvement in this department, I have no interest in upgrading.

Reduce noise (not that it's bad right now) and improve DR and you have me sold unless it's over 2200USD. If these are the only changes I'll probably pick up the current 7D or wait for the 70D unless it comes in at a similar price to the current model. I don't need any more MP, an improved focusing system- YES, please; that and the poor ISO performance of my XTi are the only real complaints I have. I don't have a need for 10fps, though I wouldn't complain about it. if they can figure out an adequately rugged swivel screen assembly I might even go higher on my price.
Canon XTi, AE-1 Program, Rebel II, Tamron 17-50 VC, Zenitar-M 50/1.7 and a bunch of other cheap lenses (50/1.8FD, 18-55 EF-S Kit, 35-70 Kit, 80-200 4.5-5.6). S100 classic.

fingers crossed for 27mp aps-h with 18mp APS-C crop mode :P

and maybe 8fps in APS-H 10fps in APS-C

Wouldn't that be something!

woops calculation fail APS-H would be around 30mp with an APS-C 18mp using the current 18mp pixel density
then use gapless micro lens tech improve iso same body as 5Dmk3 same battery same AF its probably not going to hit the iso heights of the 5Dmk3 or the 1Dx but it should still be a nice performer :P

ah dreams...

Random Tidbits


A few randon things came in that go against some of things we’ve heard about the 7D replacement.
Two bits of info say an APS-C camera capable of 10fps is in testing, the same camera also has a variation of the 61pt AF system found in the 5D Mark III and 1D X. No mention of megapixels or any other features of the prototype.</p>

Is this really a CR2 tid-bit?  It says so, but the text sounds a bit more like CR1.

How much? I bet it will be $2500! Too expensive IMO vs. other alternatives out here!

Assuming you've already got a bagful of Canon L glass, what alternatives are you suggesting? If the spec list is as detailed, and the build quality is on a par with 5D3, I'd pay over $2k for it in a heartbeat.

Considering the price they will have to ask for such an animal as this proposed 7D2 it would have to have at least similar high ISO noise performance as a 5D2. I can't see the reason to upgrade to it unless it does. The 7D focus is already pretty good.

Why do you have a bag full of L glass ??? Why would anyone have a bag full of any kind of glass ??? If you don't use a lens (or anything else) at least once a week, you are better off renting it as needed.

If a lens doesn't regularly make me money, I see no need to own it. YMMV

The Big question is will the 7DII announcement and resulting camera cause the same level of dummy spitting, carry on and trolling that happened after the 5Dmk3 anouncement?  :-*

Errrgh, I hope not. But somehow I doubt it. There isn't as much at stake here. The 5DMk2 - 5DMk3 transition was a long and emotional ride for a lot of shooters. While the 7D2 release will be a huge interest generator, I doubt it will attract the same levels of indulgent, highly unattractive behaviour.

But just in case; moderators do you have a plan?

I have a bagfull of glass because I take lots of pictures in different scenarios. For example I have 4 lens that cover 200mm

70-200 f/2.8 II
70-300L
200 f/2.8
200 f/2

I also have 3 bodies - ff, 1.3 and 1.6, I usually take 2 bodies out with me, quite often with 2 of the above lens mounted. For street work I go for the Uncle Bob look with the 7D and black lens using the 50 f/1.4, 135 or 200 f/2.8

And they all get used regularly but renting is not an option as it is too expensive. I have had my 135 for 5 years now -  I bought it used to go on my film camera.

Keep the same 18MP, but make the DR better and improve both the low end noise as well as the high end noise.

For me personally a clean ISO 1600 would be perfect, comparable to the ISO 400 of the 40D.

The AF is working just fine for me! I recently picked up a 7D after coming from a 40D. The rumors that the 7D was not to be upgraded, and the price of the 5DIII, made me go for it. If a new 7D comes out, I will buy it in a heartbeat.
