The debate over whether we'll see a direct 7D (and D300s) replacement is getting even more interesting.  If the pictures of the D600 on NR are real, what does this imply for a D300s replacement? ...Could Nikon therefore market a 'D400' in the same position as the D300s (i.e. a high end "DX" camera in a D800 style body) alongside this D600 without sending out mixed messages, and if they did, what price point would it occupy? Perhaps the lack of a D400 with the D7000 generation indicates that the high-end 'DX' format camera is dead? Having made this suggestion, Nikon have done this before with the D100 and D70.

Could Nikon market both a D600 and a D400 at similar price points? Could Canon market both a 7DII and a Full-Frame Rebel at similar price points?

Why not?

APS-C and Full Frame are two very different formats with very different strengths and weaknesses. One is not better than the other, they are simply different. It is much easier to market two different products at similar price points than it is to market two nearly identical products at vastly different price points – but that will be the real challenge both Nikon and Canon will face if they release "entry-level" full frame cameras that compete with the 5DIII and the D800.

Almost every other industry gives people similar choices. Look at cars for example. Order the small coupe with all the options or for the same price, get the stripped down full-size sedan. One doesn't eat into the sales of the other because they are bought by two different customers. A much more difficult marketing challenge would be to sell the same full-size sedan at $25,000 and $60,000 with the same engine and nearly identical options.

I wonder if the D600 will be a loss leader, simply to win back market share from Canon.

The 1xxxD line of Canon cameras is not long for this world. That price point and market segment is going to be overtaken by mirrorless cameras (MILC/EVIL). I don't expect to ever see a successor to the 1100D.

If the 7D Mark II goes full-frame then I think it is obvious that it will be called "7DX", following the naming style change from 1D/1Ds to 1DX.

Although I would like to see this when the announcement comes
I don't think the 7dII will be FF
I think you will see a 4D to follow the 1 D 5D format for full frame and
the 7dII will be the 7D with the digic V processors and the new 2.0 firmware and the af of the 5D mkIII but still APS-C and 24MP plus sensor

I'm just hoping the 7DII just an updated version (APS-C) of the current 7D since that's what I'm holding out for.

Is it just me, or did Canon get smoked this year. Sure, I love the 5DIII, but at worst it should be the same price as the D800. There is no test or review that shows it as being better than the D800, while the D800 has been hailed as wunderkind by most reviews I have read.
Now, there are rumors of a High MP 1D series body. Sure this is nice for die hard Canon users. But what Nikon user, or undecided non partisan buyer would purchase a 1D series priced camera when the D800 is only 3000.
Now, Nikon is seeming to be getting ready to drop the D600 for lets say 2000 dollars(rumors say 1500.) Even at 2000 dollars, this is 1500 dollars, and If you look at the specs, it looks rather similar than the 5DIII.
Sure, the 5DIII might be better, but if you aren't a blind fanboy of Canon, why would you pay 1500 dollars or 2000 dollars more for something that is just a little bit better.
With this new round of updates, it seems pretty obvious that Canon's sensor technology is getting trounced by Sony/Nikon.
I would not be surprised at all if the D600 has the same or better DXO scores as the 5DIII.
For me it seems that the best way(possibly only way) for Canon to one up Nikon in this series of releases(where there sensor is obviously not nearly as improved as Nikon's) is to put that sensor in a FF mirrorless body, but I really doubt that would happen.
This is probably the only thing that would keep me from buying the D600 at this point.

BTW, I've been a Canon owner for a few years and have a 5DC, 24-105 and 50mm 1.4. If the 5DIII was 2500 dollars I would have pre ordered it, but at 3500 it was way out of my price range and didn't get good enough reviews for me to consider spending that kind of money. I wasn't even considering Nikon at all one year ago but have been very disappointed by the price points of the new lenses and cameras(when i bought in to the system i thought Nikon lenses and bodies were more expensive, now it's the opposite.)
I have never lusted after the 5DII as the AF of my T2i/5DC is the biggest drawback for me and the 5DII doesn't seem significantly better.
At this point, I think Canon has royally screwed up, and their pricing is just out of touch.

The 7D mk II HAS to be APS-C. If it is not, there will be blood, sweat, and tears!!!

On a serious note, neutering the 7D MK II would indeed be a marketing disaster. Will canon bloat the sensor to FF? I think not. The 5D MK III is nearly a FF 7d. Will Canon turn the 7D into the 70D? Only if they want Nikon to gobble that market.

Is it possible for Canon to do something mind-numbingly stupid? Yes. Anyone remember ET, the atari game?
What is truth?

Really, if you have a ff camera and need more reach you probably can afford one of the TCs.

Sure...if your variable-aperture or f/5.6 lens will AF with one...

Well, if you have a full frame camera and need more reach, you should just buy a 7D. That way your variable-aperture or f/5/6 lens will AF. (Credit Neuro with pointing this out many times on previous threads. The best available extender is an APS-C body.)

Two great points, but maybe the 1dx can be fooled and will AF @ f8 with a little tape.  Has this been tried with the 5d3 by any forum members?

I really hope is APS-H mostly because I really want to see your reaction :D

that and I love APS-H  ;)

but more seriously I think APS-H with an APS-C crop mode which gives a FPS boost would be really awesome
I also think they should use the 45 point AF and keep the f8 AF regardless
say maybe 6FPS in APS-H and 9 FPS in APS-C

FF in a 7D would just be retarded
APS-H Fanboy

It would be good if there was a 'super sports' body with either a 1.3 or 1.6 crop. 1.3 would be the best compromise because of the IQ benefits

Possible? Yes. Likely? No.

Don't despair. Canon is a shrewd, sophisticated company. They know their 7D customers and they know how to get us to upgrade to the II. We will see an APS-C 7DII and it will be spectacular. (And of course, they'll probably squeeze every cent out of us that they can. But we will go happily like lambs to the slaughter because we loves our 7Ds)

Have you not seen this:
http://nikonrumors.com/2012/06/14/first-leaked-nikon-d600-images.aspx/

Nikon will obviously have a FF camera at the $1800 price point, where the D300 and 7D used to live.
After Photokina, any crop camera at this price point will be doomed, as it just stands no chance when it comes to image quality.

So, if Canon doesn't want Nikon to gobble that market, the 7DII will have to be FF and priced competitively.

You realize that no crop camera stands a chance against the upcoming D600 in terms of image quality, right.

So, let's say Canon indeed makes an APS-C 7DII and prices it at $1699 (like the 7D).
The review sites will inevitably compare it to the similarly priced D600, with its 24mp latest generation Sony FF sensor (which will likely make the 5DIII sensor look bad).
How do you think these comparisons will turn out ???.

Journos are infatuated with ff - but the wildlife people will see through that ....

Isn't the 5D3 the FF 7D? What on Earth would a FF 7D2 be??

I don't care what they'll call the new cameras. I don't really care about the price either.

All I care about is that Canon gets their act together when it comes to sensor tech, especially low ISO read noise (dynamic range).

Nikon/Sony's sensor tech has a ridiculously big advantage right now, and makes the 5D3 sensor look like a toy.
