Confirmed FACTS:

Canon 7D is not FF.
Also it will have something called the 'magic 144' which is not seen even in the 1D series.

Again, this is confirmed.

OK so a Friend of mine is a Canon Sponsored Tog and he has his hands on it. He wont say much but after a few beers I managed to get a few things out of him.

First he gave me a riddle: said "144 million reasons a sec to buy a new camera"

Then in conversation during the night I managed to get the following info, not confirmed.
Name is 7D
Its a new niche
14MP Cropped
10FPS
Video and Pics at same time
dual cards

He said the launch in SA is the 10th of Sept. I have pre ordered.


Canon 1DSMk11, Canon 1DMk111, Canon 20D. Canon 50mm F1,4 Canon 24-70 F2.8L Canon 70-200 F2.8L Saving for a few more.

I love the 35mm sensor format too much to give it up for more FPS. Now, faster FPS + 51 point AF with > 19 cross-type...then we'll talk.

Sounds to me like Canon's taking on the Nikon D300 with this offering. Just as long as the AF isn't crippled, they'll have a winner. Because what's the point of 10 FPS if all of them are out of focus?

Judging from your gear list I think you might actually benefit more from some fast L primes....then again, who wouldn't benefit.... :D

I thought the point of 10 fps is to get at least one in focus. :p

I totally agree that the 7D is a D300 "killer". The AF has to be good enough though.

IF IT EXISTS! That is. ;)

Is it even possible to pre-order a camera that doesn't officially exist?

Where would you do it? through canon? they'd deny it existed until announced.
through a local store? "hey friendly local camera store dude, here's $100 down to put my name on the list for a camera that hasn't been announed yet, but when it is, my name's first on the list!"???

I don't doubt there are some cameras to be announced soon, but that last "I have pre ordered" comment undermines the rest of what was listed as specs.


Bodies: 5D mk III
Lenses: 50 f/1.2L | 85 f/1.2L II | 100 f/2.8L IS Macro | 17-40 f/4.0L | 24-70 f/2.8L II | 70-200 f/2.8L IS II

i thought i would throw this out there because i havent seen it stated yet. for those thinking the image of the camera top cant possibly be full frame.........i started thinking. i have an eos 30 (elan 7) 35mm film camera and the top of the camera is very much like a crop dslr; small with a pop up flash. here are some web shots for comparison...

it appears that this design in a full frame dslr would be possible. my .02
