Canon 7D Mark II Rumors

Canon Rumors picked up on a juicy tip from a “very reliable source” with regard to Canon’s roadmap for 2013.

The key points?

3 New DSLRs: Two are entry-level and one is mid-level. The likely suspects are a Canon Rebel T5i and 70D filling the entry-level roles and a 7D Mark II (the original 7D is pushing 4 years old now) taking on the mid-level announcement. Some of the more recent rumors have put the 7D Mark II with a 24MP sensor and a February announcement date.

New EOS-M Mirrorless Camera: This has been rumored for quite some time and would almost certainly be an easy guess with a rumor/leak. The question is whether Canon has learned from the mistakes on the current EOS-M model and will deliver a successor that’s worth the effort.

4 New EF Lenses: Unknown which exact ones will debut this year, but the EF 100-400L IS lens is begging for a replacement.

Hi there well I don’t agree Why Canon call 7D MarkII wich is not a full frame THE name MarkII is only for Full FRAME Cameras from the begining ,iF a new one is comming in that level the right name it can be 7Ds,8D,or even 7Dx and not at all 7D MarkII PEOPLE it gonna think is a full frame wrong some times Cias MAKE WRONG same like the series 20D 30D until 60D and the new one which is comming soon 70D FALLOW THE SAME DESIGNATION

Sorry. You are incorrect in saying that the MARK ll or such applies to full frame cameras. The 1.3 crop cameras used for years in sporting high speed cameras use the Mark ll,lll, and Mark llll cameras

All I want is a DSLR with the Mpix of the Nikon D800, the WiFi of the 6D, and the build quality of the 5D III.

Whatever Canon comes up with it will be to little and way to late for me. The lack of commitment to advanced features like dynamic range and more pixels for landscape photographers has driven me to Nikon, I wont be back.

If you happily moved on to Nikon, you wouldn’t be here crying about Canon. Tisk-tisk.

Actually I use Canon cameras, however if Canon cannot produce a worthy competitor for the Nikon D800E then they obviously do not care to support the large format landscape portion of the photography market. The problem with Canon camera is dynamic range and color noise in shadow areas, both of which are solved by the D800E!
