Muller Photo, a French electronics seller, has posted product pages for the Sony A900 and Canon EOS 7D. While neither page divulges anything regarding the cameras’ specifications, Muller Photo lists prices for both cameras.

According to Kamera & Bild, who claims to have notice of the press conference, Canon will be dropping the bombshell on August 26th. The only question is whether the new EOS will be the Canon 3D, 5D Mark II, 6D, 7D or some other model (or two).
Photography Bay will stay on top of the news and rumors to the bitter end and beyond. Stay tuned.
