Rumors: the Canon EOS 7D Mark II camera to be announced at the CP+ show in Japan

Canon EOS 7D Mark II camera rumors
Another Canon EOS 7D Mark II rumor: the camera will be announced at the CP+ show in Japan (February 13 - 16, 2014). Just like the Nikon D400, a 7D replacement has been rumored for years, but there has not been anything reliable so far to convince me that this camera is really coming. A new version of the Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L IS lens could also be announced soon.

    Does that mean the D400 will be announced soon as well?

      nikon is a canon copy cat, so you can expect a d400 when and if the 7D comes out, i bet it will be called d9000 though. it would make more sense to rearrange the names to xxxx= APS and xxx= full frame. the d600 ain’t a pro camera. So the names are already fucked up

        haha someone sounds bitter.
        You mean Nikon are more strategic and smart about their launches and waits for either big events such as world cups and olympics, or small events such as canon announcements which Nikon then supersede.

        pwnd!

          im actually a nikon user, and prefer nikon over canon.
          I just think Canon is being more aggressive in their market strategy(giving stuff like good liveview af and wifi and touchscreens). Nikon is being over convervative

    I hope this gets Nikon off their behind on the D300s upgrade. If not, it may very well be Canon + Fujifilm for my system from this point forward. Fujifilm because Nikon (and Canon) are not providing the full range of lenses for a fully capable, compact and lightweight APS-C system (meaning with a 24mm f/1.4, for one example, designed for APS-C rather than full frame). For the wide to short tele range it looks like mirrorless, particularly Fujifilm given the new lens roadmap, is going to be the way to go. For birds, my specification is a rugged, weatherproof, 1000-shot battery, 100 shot RAW buffer, focus tracking 8 fps 20-24mp APS-C camera with a 400mm f/5.6 lens, which I don’t expect from mirrorless for at least a couple more years, so a DSLR upgrade is what I seek for that.

      Your specs are spot-on. Come on Nikon….

      It will be interesting if Fuji fulfills the specs of that with a new weather proof X line.
      Nikon may finally build the D400 which would be great, but will they build the DX line more completely without having to buy third party. I have been doing some back country and the Fuji is hardly noticed. The full frame and Fuji together makes for a lot more weight. I sure hope Canon and Nikon explorer the APS-C more completely.

    400/5.6L IS? Why not make it 100-400/5.6L IS? Nikon’s 2nd generation 80-400 VR is quite impressive. (not the price)
