While Photokina came and went without the oft-rumored Canon 7D Mark II or 70D making an appearance, rumors are still kicking around about what the inevitable camera may actually become and when it will arrive.
The latest words suggests the Canon 7D Mark II will remain as the flagship APS-C camera in the EOS lineup, which seems even more likely after the introduction of the new full frame Canon 6D. Likewise, the 7D Mark II should be accompanied by the lower-end 70D and Rebel T5i/700D, replacing the 60D and Rebel T4i, respectively.
Rumors further suggest that the 7D Mark II will sport a higher-resolution APS-C format sensor – with no further word on other specifications for the camera. However, I would expect a sports/wildlife-oriented camera (as is the case with the current 7D) and a continued push into a dual-purpose role as a video camera.
What are you looking for in the 7D Mark II, 70D or Rebel T5i?
