I concur...the biggest features I'm looking forward to are improved ISO performance (as always), higher FPS and GPS. I'm not a huge fan of the swivel screen on the 60D but I won't hate on it too hard because it CAN be useful, namely with video.

What I would miss is the adjustable LCD screen I have on my 60D. It sure is nice to have at times for overhead or low shots and also for viewing to be able to adjust it to reduce sun glare. To me it is a valuable feature that should be on the upper range cameras.

I agree. I've never understood the peeps who "poo-poo" that feature.

That is the one feature I wish my 5D3 had the most. Some of the environments I shoot in, it just isn't possible to lay down on the ground to look through the viewfinder or to view the lcd screen when composing low shots.

Now that pictures of the top plate and back are up (and if true), there isn't one single difference in buttons, dials, markings, displays, etc. from the 5D3. If you had both, one would be forgiven if they accidentally picked up the wrong camera. Other than the 7 has a built-in flash and has a 7D on the front where the other has a 5, the new MkII is amazingly similar on the outside.

EDIT: Found two tiny differences so far. Small hump by the hot shoe (GPS receiver?) and the speaker holes bottom left of the viewfinder.

For shooters with both bodies, that will be a great thing, I'd bet.

Canon has two options. They can introduce a new killer sensor. The one we have been waiting for and they can charge whatever they want.

Or they can re-hash the 70D sensor, which wasn't any better with IQ then the 60D sensor. But, if they want to succeed with this, they will have to keep the price low. The 7D was $1699 at launch, right? I think they will have to be there or cheaper. If this camera is in the $1500 range, I'd even consider it as the rumors describe it.

agreed with footbag. they really need to roll out a killer sensor. rehashing the 70D in 10fps with a new image processor isnt going to make people jump over eachother for a new semi-pro body rather than grabbing a APS-C pro quality body

The lack of wifi is gonna be a deal breaker for me... wifi is immensely useful when you have a phone/tablet that you can use for live view shooting, especially if you need to put the camera in an awkward position to get the shot. It seems bizarre that they would leave it off a brand new camera. And yes, I'm aware that you can build a solution to this, but it's 2014 and every other device I own has wifi built in without having to use additional equipment.

The lack of WiFi and touch screen is making me wonder if they were trying to hit a price point.

It's one of those decisions that sounds good in a boardroom.

I wish you'd all stop making such assumptions and at least give them the benefit of the doubt. We still have no info on whether or not the sensor is new or not. 5 years if waiting... I am leaning more towards this being a new sensor altogether.

Do they now, or would they make it so you could get wifi in the aftermarket grip. I"m asking since I don't know if they already do that or not. It would seem it an easy way of doing it.

i bought the 7D when it first came out as a pro quality camera with a APS-C sensor and it was and performed amazingly. With the incredible improvements we have made over the past 5 years since the first 7D the new one kinda does need to live up to game changer status that was rolled out in the original 7D. not to mention following the model numbers single digit cameras fall under the pro category despite sensor size, double number digits are considered by most to be enthusiast/semi-pro, triple number/rebel are entry level. if the 7DmkII doesnt have that pro performance and they basically roll out a 70D with 10fps a lot of people will be upset with canon.

assumption and speculation arent the same fyi

It really is looking exactly like the 5D3. The pop up flash means the housing ion top sticks out a lot more on the 7D2, but yeah. Identical controls.

The problem with this is that historically, Canon will say "it's all new" and then really it's not. The 18MP 7D sensor has been put in about 8 cameras, and half the time the press tries to tell us it's actually all new. It never was. Slight changes maybe, but not new, and not improved.

Funny thing is that many people actually will defend Canon's claim to death.

So stop crying and buy a 5D III and stop posting in the 7D rumors site. I'm just getting super fed up with assumptions and "speculation". No one has a clue what is coming. We haven't seen any reviews so it's impossible to assume anything yet there are so many people already **** and crying that they're not impressed. If you don't like the rumored specs, don't but it!

It's not that simple.

Many of us are frustrated with Canon because they're so slow to innovate. If the 7D2 has an antiquated sensor like the 70D, why should we have any hope that the 5D4 will be given a better treatment?

Canon isn't going to change unless the market forces them to, and they are already so far behind that they may never fully catch up. That's why we're so negative right now.
