Canon EOS 7D Successors [CR1]
« on: June 28, 2012, 06:28:22 PM »
The prosumer market up next?
Now that Canon has addressed the “professional” space with the 5D Mark III, 1D X & 1D C (Yes, I know some want the big megapixel camera), it could be time to turn our attention to the “prosumer” space. We keep hearing bits of information about what’s planned for the segment in the coming months.

The 70D
The latest I have heard, and spoken about before, is that we’ll see the 70D move up the line. It’ll be specced close to the current 7D, however with a new higher megapixel APS-C sensor.

The 7D X
The rumor that won’t go away is that the APS-H sensor will return to the Canon lineup and fit between the 70D and 5D Mark III. Is it really possible? Maybe. I don’t think Canon needs more APS-C cameras beyond the Rebel, a 70D and possibly a mirrorless entry.

This points to the 7DII being APS-H. 8)

Snowcones and popsicles in hell sound good, too, and just about as likely...  :P

oooh I bet you are glad for having turned karma off now i can hear all the virtual smites falling from the wrath of the crop crowd :P

oh yeah i almost forgot

APS-H, APS-H, APS-H!!!!

and yeah calling it a 7DX gets around the naming issues with the sensor size change too... Nice

I'll happily wipe it off and purchase a 7DII, it that turns out to be the case. Hey, I said they'd never put 1-series AF in the 5DIII, and if I wasn't getting a 1D X I'd already have a 5DIII.  Wrong or right, there's no losing here...

I would have to stop and think carefully about my upgrade path. The dilema would be 1DX or 7DX as an upgrade for the 7D, but if a high end, high mps came out I might go for that as a 1DS3 replacement.

Time to sit on hands and wait to see how it pans out.

Careful. That kind of candor can get you deleted around here.

Entertaining, but not gonna happen. Congrats to CR guy though. Great way to boost readership and stir up interest during the summer, while we wait for the real announcements.

I keep saying APS-H is just too good to shelve.  It doesn't give up very much to the 5DIII sensor as it is.  I wouldn't hesitate to add a 1.3 7D to my stable.  :)

Could this be the 120mps monster they showed a couple of years ago - that would wipe the smirk of the D800 fanboys  8) 8) 8)
