.

After giving this much thought, I'm sure Canon has a wholly different strategy in mind. The next 7D will be the 7DD, the 7DoubleD.

The 7DoubleD will have two sensors, one an H and one a C. It will have two lens mounts, one for each sensor and a selector switch for which sensor/lens you want to use. The photography world will go nuts for this, hailing it as the greatest advance in photography since the autowinder. After seeing it, Nikon will simply give up and go out of business.

And finally, all 7DoubleD purchasers will get 70 virgin like creatures at their disposal when they finally depart this realm.
You're offended? Oh, really! Life IS offense -- get used to it.

Canon can't change the image sensor format of a new 7D from APS-C to APS-H or FF and still maintain the product title "7D". If anything the 7D name would be eliminated and a new name will be used.

No, no, the poll is serious!  The recent APS-H sensor remarks are the joke, excuse us who make fun and then people can't tell what's serious and what isn't  8)

I believe the next 7D will be APS-C.  What I am more curious about is when it will be released.  Given that new firmware has just been announced for the current 7D, my guess is that we will not see a 7D mkii until sometime in 2013.

New sensor size = new series, 7DII will be APS-C.

Thank you.
What is truth?

I want to believe that will be APS-H... but i voted APS-C  :-\.

The new firmware was official announced ??

I think the firmware rumour has been morphed into a fact

What we dont know at this point is:

- will the current 7D have minor updates to become the 70D
- will there be a replacement for the 7D
- would Canon reposition the 7D replacement as an 'entry level pro' sports camera (putting the price to the 5DIII level)

There are so many options that at this point it is pure speculation

There are two possibilities:

1. If canon will release a entry level FF camera than 7D line will cease to exist. they will move 70D little bit up (no reason to have two APS-C high end cameras).
2. If there will be no entry level FF than 7D2 will be improved and released in winter 2012, early 2013.

There is a big possibility that Nikon D400 will not be released (for the same reason... D600)and they will move little bit up the D7000 replacement.
