Okay, well CanonWatch says:
- The EOS 7D Mark II sports a 20.2 MP sensor but it is not the same sensor as featured on the EOS 70D
- The AF has 65 points but only 32 are cross-type. Center point is dual cross. f/8 on center point
- The EOS 7D Mark II has a “pro build quality” (whatever this means in detail)
- Price in EU will be €1800 (that could mean $1,990 in the US)
The 70D Has a 20.2 sensor... lol... pro build quality
means it iwll be exactly like the current 7D (MKi)
Canon is running out of ideas... sad......http://www.canonwatch.com/
I'm not sure what's wrong with a 20.2 MP sensor. On a crop camera, that's sufficiently dense for me. A new sensor is a new sensor and there are many, including myself, who would just be happy with their current (not currant lol) 7D if it just had a significantly better sensor. So until we see samples, we won't know what that's going to be.
But also mentioned are some interesting new things like f8 AF in the center, many more AF points, dual card slots, electronic MF, and hints at a new AF system that tracks on the sensor after the first shot when shooting high speed servo. All this is cool and new. So I don't see anything sad about it. What will be sad is if after it comes out, we look at the sensor and go "meh".
I am serious....and don't call me Shirley.
Canon 7D and a bunch of other stuff
