Canon 7D Mark II Rumors

Recent rumors suggest that the Canon 7D replacement, tentatively called the 7D Mark II, will be getting more of a pro look and feel for its control systems. Specifically, the rumors assert that the 7D Mark II will feature an EOS-1 style top plate. As a result, there will be no mode dial and it will function more like a pro-level camera in terms of the external controls.

However, the camera is rumored to still include a pop-up flash. Even though this is almost universally recognized as a consumer-ish feature, the pop-up flash is very useful for pros controlling off-camera Speedlites without the need to mount a master flash or remote on the hotshoe.

Finally, the rumors add that WiFi and GPS features will be built-in to the camera.

    If the new Canon 7D does not have 4k, how does it propose to compete with Panasonic or for that matter Sony at a $2000 plus price point?
    With a new sensor that also outputs 4k Canon could become again the hottest selling camera in the world!
    Can they get that?
