Will the 7D have capabilities to shoot with Canon 1.4 & 2x multipliers in auto focus with prime lens?

I don't usually like to comment on things like this until I've had a chance to see for myself, but the thing is, up until now if one felt they needed or wanted MANY of the best Canon features, the ONLY option was the 1 series.

Yes during the last few years hte better stuff has been dripping down into the more affordable bodies, but just a trickle. This meant for many, to get what we wanted the 1D was the only option.

This is all changed now.
Now one can have 1D features in a much more "sensible" body, and price point for the non dedicated professional.

IMHO this is actually an advantage to Canon as well.
Fewer people buying the top of the line 1 series may hit the wallet a little, but getting to offer this option to many, and keeping the 1 series support for the working pros could be less of a headache to Canon.

Anyway, to me the 7D is on paper a VERY viable option vs. the 1D bodies.

If the 7D gets rated with IQ equaling the 1D at ISOs higher than 1600 then we may have a winner for me. I love my 1Dm3 but at the 7D's price point and updated technology I could see myself saying adios to my 1Dm3...

I've been saving for a 1d III for a little while now and was going to pull the trigger it next month or two but this 7D does make me think. I think my biggest worry (like most) is the high ISO images of 18mega pixels. In the end it is still a waiting game until the 1st ones hit the shelves and we get real world examples, but it is fun to talk about :)

Let's put it into perspective. Maybe around $1500-1600 for the 7D or $2000-2200 for a MKIII? Would you shell out $500 more to get a good used MKIII or not?

I HOPE the mkiii goes down in price and people jump on the 7D.
I too have been saving for a mkiii for a while. I really want the 10 fps with a larger RAW buffer than what my 30D currently has.

15 RAWs vs 30 RAWs is quite a difference!

They are currently at $2350-2500, probably about 3 - 4 at this price in the last couple of weeks on FM. You will see a few folks dump their MKIII for around $2K to $2.2K for the 7D, but that window of opportunity will be short. People will have to be quick on the draw. The price will go back and stabilize back at $2300-2400, until about Feb.

Just my take after watching each round of releases and what happened to the body being replaced as well as the peripheral models.

No way I would sell my 1D Mark III for a 7D. There is a reason the 1D Mark III costs $3000 more than the 7D. 300,000 shutter clicks vs 150,000. 10 fps vs 8. Waterproof vs. weather sealed. 1.3 vs 1.6 sensor. Built like a tank vs. Drop and it breaks. AF finally works vs. who knows? I love my 1D, going with a 7D takes me back to the days of shooting a 20D and once you own a 1D series, I can't imagine going back down in quality.

Waterproof vs. weather sealed.

From the Canon au site on the 1DMIII:

Professional Features: Magnesium Alloy Body with over 70 dust and
moisture resistant seals ... that's not waterproof
