We're told that the EOS 7D Mark II will be getting some attention for Photokina this September with some kit and accessory announcements.
- A firmware announcement sometime in August, no word on whether it's just a bug fix update or not. Don't get your hopes up for a crazy new features! We'll let you know if we hear any more about it.
- The EOS 7D Mark II will come with a new lens kit, likely the new nano-usm EF-S 18-135 f/3.5-5.6 IS USM.
- A new “affordable” wifi adaptor for the EOS 7D Mark II.
We're not sure what the new wifi adaptor looks like or what type of throughput it will offer, but if they could release a flash shoe wifi adaptor for around $100 USD, I think they'd get a lot of takers. I don't think they sold a lot of the $769 Canon WFT-E7A that is currently available.
We also don't know if this new wifi adaptor will be specifically for the EOS 7D Mark II.
More to come…
