Canon EOS 7D Mark II: 24 MP CMOS Digital SLR. Rumor ⭐⭐⭐⭐

February 19, 2013

Introduction and Perspective:

Rumors. What do they mean. To some, rumors are authentic wispers of truth from people that are in the know. To others rumors are complete fiction and the food for fools. And of course there is everything inbetween. For us these creations are an interesting combination of “ambitious wish lists of enthusiasts” married with “the words of amateur marketing executives,” in effort to determine the Next Iteration of an existing product, or more agressively, a New Product. With the litigiousness of our society these days, the Non Disclosure Agreements entered into by employees and engineers.vI maintain in sobriety, “The people that know, dont talk; the people that don’t, talk.” We will pass it along to you. You decide.


We received the 1st spec list for the Rumored Canon EOS 7D Mark II from "a known source" in a while. Most people are now saying that this camera may be announced at the end of summer, 2013, with availability soon thereafter, like that of the EOS 5D Mark III. Also mentioned, their could be as many as 3 prototype configurations of the 7D2 camera being beta-tested, and this one of the prototypes. Specifications:

  • 24.1mp APS-C Sensor
  • Dual DIGIC V
  • 10fps
  • Dual Memory SD Card Slots
  • 61 AF Points (with red focus points in AIS?)
  • 3.2″ LCD
  • Build quality, similar to the 5D3
  • GPS & Wifi, similar to existing 6D
  • MSRP: $2199 ($500 more than the 7D when it launched?)
  • ISO Performance, close to that of the 5D3
  • Lots of new Hi Def video features.

As we’ve heard before, the Canonm 7D2 camera may basically be a "mini-EOS-1D X" and with that, comes a price increase. It was also stressed that about the only spec that may change is the sensor, as they have a few APS-C sensors available. Little doubt a 24mp should be a real winner, as it is with the current Rebel.


Rumor ID: Canon EOS 7D Mark II.
