There's not a lot being said about the upcoming DSLR from Canon. We're getting little bits of information, and what we're getting is going to be true. However, Canon Japan has been very proactive in stopping leaks within the various subsidiaries of Canon Inc. We, and others have been told that some past reviewers and journalists have been left out of the loop this go around. Canon seems to be taking leaks a lot more seriously than Sony and Nikon, who in my opinion, leak stuff themselves.
This is a small rundown of what we know and can publish about the EOS 7D Mark II (If that's what it's called).
- Full metal body (EOS-1 build quality)
- EOS-1 style top plate
- New sensor technology (multi layer)
- No Wifi built-in
- Not touch screen, super durable LCD cover
- 12fps shooting (or faster)
- Dual Pixel AF
- New AF system
This will probably turn out to be Canon's best specced camera ever. We're also told, that just like the EOS 5D Mark III launch. This camera should be available pretty soon after the announcement.
Another major US retailer confirmed to us that the EOS 7D is discontinued. They have been told to remove their display models of the camera and that no more would be available to order. This follows Amazon listing the camera as discontinued.
If you have any more information about the camera, or any of Canon's other coming products. You can mail us anonymously here.
