I guess the 70d is close in time and it will be close to the 7d in features (I hope everything except build quality).

I wouldnt say "no" 7D2 but probabley not anytime soon, my guess is these updates are to try and keep the existing 7D competitive with a new 70D until the mk2 comes out next year.

If there is a Mk II...

That said, it was 2 years after the 5D Mark II's version 2.0.3 was announced before the 5D Mark III came into being.

While this sounds very swell, what does it do for a body that wont focus proper?

7d pain on this side. Sorry for the rantish post. But Cannon is f'ing with me right now...3 times back and no dice

while good news this is not good news for me.  I'm sitting on on my 50D waiting with money in the bank waiting for an upgrade to either the 60D or the 7D.  New firmware for the 7D means no replacement for the 7D.  So now I wait for a 60D replacement or perhaps a cheaper full frame.  I have money to burn here Canon, show me something I want

So, 7D owners get THIS and 60D owners get a serial number and spell check fix?

Seems fair  :o

sounds really nice, sure wish they would have added 5 or  7 AEB bracketing... seems simple.. but other than that its a nice little upgrade.

Same here, I have a 50D and am after a new 7D mkII or very similar. No way am I buying a 3 year old 7D

Over to you Canon.
