Hopefully it will be a proper 7dMKII replacement.If it's a 80d-ish upgrade I'm going full Nikon.I'd bet money it will have AA filter because of video.No AA filter is a must for me.
With those specs, no, it won't be a great upgrade over the 7D2. What has happened is since 2009, the DLSR marketed has imploded enough that Canon went from splitting the APS C line into the 7D and XXD to now merging them back together 10 years later. This is the last prosumer APS-C DSLR you will see from Canon for multiple reasons, meaning it is an upgrade for the 80D and perhaps a lateral move for the 7D2.
- Not much DSLR market left
- Canon is merging the two lines back into one
- There cannot be a 100D because there was already one.
- Canon is putting their resources more into the EOS R line up, including lenses, and the M series
We now just received an SL3, and perhaps one other super-rebel I feel, and that will be the end of the APS-C DSLR rebel line as well. I know Mike (umphotography) predicted the end of all Canon DSLRs sometime in 2018, but as we stated then and it is coming to fruition, there are more DSLRs coming out, probably about 1 per major line before they are done.
