CR’s Take
I have never discounted that there could be TWO new prosumer SLR’s coming down the pipe. A 7D only would make very little sense spec wise. There would be no fast canon SLR other than the 50D and 1D Mark III (or IV when it’s replaced). We have heard solid rumors in favor of both cameras existing.

These 60D specs are pretty wonky, a new sensor? I think Canon could improve the current 15.1mp sensor as they did with the XTI sensor to the 40D.

  1. John Swan, you’re the biggest whiner I’ve seen for a while. Have fun when you go to Nikon. A whole new bunch of stuff to whine about.

  2. Someone ban John Swan, he whines way too much and tries to get people banned/blocked for making comments he doesn’t like.

  3. Just another thread to today’s market position of Canon (haven’t seen it mentioned before), is the used market. Canon have to compete with second hand 5D’s for about 800 euro’s, 1DII’s for about 1500 euro for example. This are still very good camera’s that have proven themself already.

    For the xxxD line, the threat comes from 20D, 30D and 40D which are for sale for 200-450 euro.

  4. It’s not likely the 7D would be full-frame — unless Canon wants to disrupt the DSLR market, including their own segment. The 5D cut into sales of the 1Ds; why take a chance with an even-cheaper full-frame camera?

    It’s obvious the 7D will be a mid-priced APS-sensored camera with video recording.

  5. I don’t know who created this site, but I hope whoever did will learn how to write.
