We’re hearing from more dealers around the globe that the EOS 7D is either “out of stock” or has reached “end of life”. This is all pointing to the obvious conclusion that a replacement to the camera is on the horizon.
We haven’t been told of an exact announcement date, but do expect it in August. If we had to speculate, around August 18 would be our guess.
We have been told that a new STM kit lens is likely with the EOS 7D replacement, along with an L zoom.
No one at CineGear 2014 this past weekend had any insight about a 7D replacement, not even the usual facial expressions when you mention a new product. However, top Canon dealers should be hearing about it soon. We do expect spec relation information to be very tight until well into July.
More to come…
