Here we go again. APS-H will reappear when one of two things happens:

  • Nikon and Sony release an APS-H body, or
  • Someone captures a verifiable action shot with their 6D of Bigfoot riding a unicorn.

I think the Bigfoot/Unicorn shot has the better odds.

Indeed. Neither can I. A problem I foresee, however, is that the  7D MK II will likely not to be released before January...

Released or announced?

I have just bought a 7D and have been very disappointed with the IQ from it. Much worse than my old 10mp 40D. Amazing camera but whats the point when the IQ is rubbish. So noisy where it counts 100-400ISO, very disappointed.

The new one better be better, but the 5D MKIII bests it in every way apart from 2fps so thats where im headed instead.

If you ask me, both Canon and Nikon are working their way "down" the line in terms of new models:

Canon :
<$5000 range: EOS 1DX,
$3500 range: 5D Mark III
$2000 range: 6D,
$1000-$2000 range: Probably 7D
Less than $1000 range: Rebel T4i (slightly out of sequence)

Likewise, nikon did the D4, D800, D600 and now time is due for the D300s (7D competitor) replacement.

I think what's left is the high MP, high DR camera (1Ds3 true replacement) and the 7D Mark II.  If we had those two added, we'd pretty much have everything updated and a stellar camera line.  My fear is that with the release of the 6D AND the 5D Mark III, maybe Canon isn't going with a 7D true replacement.  It would be hard to understand having a 5D Mark III, 6D, and 7D Mark II all announced/released in a very short time, at least to me.  We seemed to have two replacements for the 5D Mark II, a high end and a low end.  Canon states that the 1DX replaces both the 1Ds3 and 1D4.  Well maybe the 5D3 actually sort of replaces the 5D2 and 7D.  I don't know, I just think we're running into too many newer models now if we add two more.  Do I think the 7D needs a true replacement?  Yeah I'd love to see a 7D Mark II.

Next year. Like Apple's strategy, they release each product with a little distance of time between them so they can keep the chatter, reviews and buzz going until it tapers off and then release another product keeping talk about Apple continuous. If i were Canon i'd want something for 2013 besides more lenses. The 7d was such and is such a kick A** camera, with the few fixable shortcomings like the 5d line addressing those few issues will make it an amazing leap in sports camera gear. I do not personally own a 7D but the 7D shooters that i hire to shoot sports have a very high hit rate and low miss rate. Colors look good too. Give it some high iso power and this camera really has everything you need for sports since spring and Sept have the dark start times at events shooting 6400 iso without worry would be awesome. I will have them shoot 3200 iso if ned be because a blurry exposed photo is of no use so if we can reach 1/400 sec or more we can usually do fine. As a rule i am always 1/500 or more but shooting F2.8 and 3200 iso to get it is a compromise since i also like F4 for most things and F7.1 for finish line work since multiple participants finish at the same time many times.

I hear you.  I did a high school football game Friday and the lighting was so bad I was at 1/500, f/2.8, and ISO 16,000.  It still worked because I was using a 1DX but a 7D, oh mercy me.

I think i have mentioned this in my post about the ultimate camera i want that isnt produced at this point and the feature i'd like to see is a 1d battery for the battery grip utilizing all the voltage for higher focus speed and tracking like the d series but allowing you to go w/o grip too if you need to go light. The voltage is what gives the Flagships their break neck speeds. Of course processing power is part of that equation but yea 8 fps would keep it down enough from the 1dx.
