Plausible. At this point in time (it is the year 2014 AD), nothing short of 24MP with 1-2 stops of better ISO performance than the original 7D will be "good enough".


Why does it need to be 24 MP? Canon's best camera uses 18.1 MP, and it's a full frame sensor.

I'd love to see a 14 MP 7D II with even faster FPS, increased buffer, and improved dynamic range and noise at low ISO's.

You must mean increased performance at HIGH ISO.

Maybe that way I'd be able to get clean shots of my nephew playing basketball. *smh :(

Nope, I mean low ISO. The 7D has terrible blue channel noise at ISO 100. A crop camera is never going to be a truly good high ISO camera. That's the realm of full frame. But a crop *should* have a great low ISO.

I was appalled when I first shot the 7D on one of my favorite Rocky Mountain streams at ISO 100. The noise on the water's surface, in the shoreline shadows, and in the blue sky was like that of a consumer super zoom circa 2002.

I'd never seen anything like it from a DSLR.

This is the year 2014 AD, yes, it must be 24MP (or at least 20 MP). Practically, we want more resolution. There is no snowball's chance in hell that the successor (if any) will have less resolution than its predecessor. Canon might as well quit the business if they bring out a 14MP successor.

Of course, that is not to say MP is everything -- it is not. But 14MP will not happen, mark my words.

I don't think it will happen, either. Many people still seem to think that more megapixels=better. The 1DX is not aimed at those people.

If Canon releases their version of a Pentax K-3 I would stock up on some Canon telephotos. I don't want to buy Pentax glass. ;)

It has been over three years since someone has come up to me and asked how many megapixels my camera has. People don't care about megapixels like they use to since they are happy with their iPhone images. From my experience, the people who asked me about megapixels were those who did not own a DSLR, but were people who's camera phone resolution was a joke if taken outside of their phone's screen resolution. Now that the camera phone image quality, at least on a computer screen, is comparable to that of a DSLR, I haven't seen those questions anymore.

When the 7D came out it was really revolutionary. It sparked interest in a "sports" crop camera. The 7D has been used by pro's, as backups, many many many photo studios use them. It's features was none seen thus far and MANY of it's technologies rolled right into the 5D3 & 1DX.

It took features from the 1D series, built on it, and at the time gave a great sensor. Everyone... EVERYONE says if the 7D had a better sensor they wouldn't have a reason to get rid of it at all.

Now the speculations are the 7D2 has moved up in it's "classification" as a PRO crop camera and no longer a prosumer. I think Canon will AGAIN release a game changing camera. It's the 7D legacy :) It will be rich in features, a new never seen before sensor all new technology. This will be the camera that all future cameras will absorb it's features from including future 1D's.

Try out the latest and greatest on it's top of the line Cropper, get feedback and then perfect the next PRO cameras to include it's features.

I know this is wishful thinking but there has to be a reason things have evolved to where we are at know. The 70D has an awesome set of features and it's only 1200. I think the 7D2 will be a 2400 dollar camera and be the camera of choice for 5D3 owners. Duplicate body, features, faster FPS, better crop sensor than anything we have seen.

...oh and be video oriented lol :p

I know you said you were wishful thinking. However, my hope is that you are right. The 7D was a standard setter when it came out, so I hope the 7D2 will be also.

I never want to be without a 7D (or possibly 7D2) even if I upgrade to 5DIII. The 7D has been a terrific camera. I have over 50,000 pics on mine, and it has been great.

I agree - a 14MP sensor, that is properly clean, with good high ISO and stellar low ISO performance, with class leading bit depth/dynamic range would keep me in the Canon camp.

Otherwise, Fuji and M4:3 are both calling quite loud. Shame Fuji has no 1:1 100mm Macro lens...
