It does but the new sensor does not address the few areas where Canon has fallen behind. If your a video shooter, it's handy but for others, not so much. The IQ of the 70D is near identical to the 7D across the board while the IQ of competitors keeps getting better.

Now you are taking my comment way too seriously.

Maybe it is my perception and it is wrong but it seems like a few posters in these threads are hoping that a 7D II is not ever produced or hope that it is not advanced over the 7D model enough so that it will fail.

I can't say I ever took that people want the 7D2 to flop. I wanted to upgrade two years ago but there was nothing out there for me. I didn't want the 5D3 because I like the 'reach' of my 7D, and the 6D didn't interest me at all.
The 7D2 has been such a long time coming it has to push the envelope. A lot of the features being touted, are features which are already out there on other bodies. Nothing evolutionary there, the sensor is the only thing which will make or break a 7D2 if it ever gets made (I don't think it will appear personally)
I have an X Pro1 as a side step, I wanted a lightweight carry everywhere camera. The IQ is up there but the AF is a sticking point for me now. When it nails focus it's great but I'm struggling a bit to be honest. Canon should be looking at breaking into the mirrorless segment with a serious contender, I think that's the way forward............

Everyone would be ecstatic if an excellent 7D2 was actually launched. Even the naysayers. Maybe especially them.

As I remember, there were about 5 years between the 5D and the 5dII. So this has happened before.

5D was end of 2005. 5D2 was end of 2008. 5D3 was start of 2012.

Does it mean 5D mk4 will be released at the beginning or end of 2015? :)

7D was a special model to compete with Nikon D300. I think maybe Canon and Nikon mutually decided to abandon that segment because neither has been updated since 2009 and they both launched FF cameras at about that pricepoint.

Seems like it, and somehow there seems to be a large market demand for a crop body with advanced focus and high FPS - at price point below the 1D line.

Perhaps both companies feel the D7000/7100 and 70D are sufficient.

Is this the lull before the storm, or is Canon going out with a whimper this time?
.

The rumors haven't died, the info is in and are posted at CR and probably CanonWatch.

I'm not convinced of that "large demand". There is a very vocal and enthusiastic bird photographers segment, but what percentage do they really represent compared to the larger community? I don't know. To do successful bird photography, that's not only in your garden, you need a lot of money, so you can as well buy the top of the line?

Pro level are also limited in numbers, but the products are more expensive and certainly have a larger margin, and I suppose they are also more important for Canon's commercial image.

The reason that my own (and I suspect at CR too - see their recent comments) rumour posts for the 7D successor have died is that I have a set of specs that I'm happy to put [Some] money on.

CR also gets my best overall reliability for this one, too many others seem more content to publish press releases and 'deals' ;-)a

Nothing I've received has convincingly contradicted it (I get some people saying 24MP, but I still go with a new version of the 70D's 20.2MP)

So 20.2MP, 10 fps, new 65pt AF, 100% VF with LCD, GPS, non tilt and non touch screen, built-in flash, 60fps video, an 'anti-flicker' setting for video.

... 10+ years of rumours, obviously mostly wrong ;-)a

Of course, as people always say, until it appears we won't know for sure ...


bye for now

The 7D was and is a very capable sports camera and perhaps more have been sold for sports than for bird photography. The crop sensor allows for the use of less expensive lenses, good AF and high FPS at below $2k makes it ideal for people shooting non pro sports and still want to get good results.

A good upgrade will definitely benefit consumers in this market segment, and I venture to say this segment is much larger than the high end pro bodies that typically gets paired with the very large and pricey lenses.

I don't think the 70D was ever intended to be a replacement for the 7D. For stills shooters, it is a downgrade in most respects. At the risk of sounding like Ken Rockwell, pros don't want fast live view AF at the expense of phase AF accuracy, reduced build quality, and only a marginally better sensor.

I think the rumours have stopped as there is nothing new to report.

The fella has said

'If what we posted turns out not to be true, it will be the greatest hoax of specs that I have seen in the 6 years we’ve been around. I will release what we have in our possession after the announcement if it turns out we were wrong.'

I am a sport shooter in pretty dark UK sports grounds, so unless it is REALLY good at ISO6400 then it is a no go for me.

Great focus speed, 10fps and great ISO at 6400 and it's a goer at around £1200.

However I think in the UK it is going to be nearer to £1499 at release with the specs mentioned.

It is a bit scary that the suspected NDA date has come and gone with no rumors at all. It's making me drop my 100% lock that a new 7d will come out to 99.9%


---------------Camera, Lens, Flash stuff.. but still wanting more
