there's no telling what canon will do...the 70D had wifi before the 7DIII came out...

That's a good point (assuming you meant to say 7DII not III). It's all marketing and "product positioning." If the 7Diii is going to be aimed at the high end, i.e. pros, Canon might make the determination that wireless connectivity is more of an "amateur" feature. They could decide that pros tend to want to review and post-process their images before presenting them, so such connectivity isn't needed. Amateurs (Rebel customers), the thinking might go, are more inclined to take a snapshot and want to post it to social media immediately. For studio setups, they would have the USB connectivity they've had for years (hopefully bumped up to USB 3 or C?).

Not saying I agree, just that they could very likely decide not to include it. Personally, in the 3 years I've had my 70D, I think I've turned on the WiFi twice. It always seemed like too much of a pain to get it connected. A card reader attached to my computer is much faster and easier. I'd rather have the built-in GPS tagging of the 7Dii.

WiFi is not an amateur thing. Just because you don't use it much doesn't mean it isn't extremely useful in the pro space. Since the 5D4 has it, and the 7D3 would be the APS-C equivalent, I am quite sure it will have it. Also to lend credibility to that statement, Canon actually created a niche market product to provide WiFi easily and cheaply to the 7D2 and 5DS series specifically. Why go through the R&D, marketing and manufacturing of such a device to provide WiFi to 3 models unless there was a need established for those models?

WiFi will undoubtedly be a part of every camera Canon produces from this point forward, especially given the world we are in.

What Canon needs to be working on would be a whole new host of features and functions, whether copied from competition or innovative within the walls at Canon, and decide which models will get which features/functions/har​dware, instead of just juggling the existing ones they have had for years on different models. There are only so many combinations of AF system/Wifi/GPS/Flip LCD/Touch Screen/Max Shutter that you can do across 7+ model lines, not to mention those are "old" features at this point and do nothing during new camera introductions.

Of course rumours are rumours. 1DX II focusing? That would be something if true. I think Canon may have to d this to compete with the D500.

And the Sony A7III. Sure it's a FF camera but it's hitting the same price point.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

I wonder if I'll ever be among the first users of a new camera body... no matter the brand. I wasn't happy to have my 7D2 start acting up. It was early enough in the production run that Canon had no idea how to fix things. They ended up replacing it. By that time, I was on to the 1D IV and sold the new 7D2 before trying it.

If I end up being interested in the 7D3, I'll definitely wait until things have settled out before I buy one.

I said I would not be a first adopter again. I waited a while with for my 5D4 but I never had any issues with the 3 predecessors so I was confident. It was more of which direction to take. If it truly is offered with 1DX II focusing, not a hybrid then I don't know. Restraint may be difficult. Maybe a few weeks :-)
