A quick update on the latest 2014 Photokina Canon rumors:

  • Development announcement for a Canon EF 800 f/5.6L IS II lens (may not happened at Photokina)
  • New 24mm pancake lens (probably f/2.8)
  • New PowerShot compact camera with 1″ sensor
  • Canon EOS 7D Mark II DSLR camera, here are the rumored specifications:

    • Kit lenses: 18-135 IS STM and 15-85 IS STM (This would be a new lens)
    • CF, UDMA mode 7 + SD, UHS-I
    • No GPS or WiFi
    • Fixed LCD, with no touch function.
    • 20.2MP “Fine Detail” CMOS  Sensor (I want more information on this)
    • Dual Pixel CMOS AF
    • Dual DIGIC 6 Processors
    • 65 AF points “All Cross-type”. Dual cross on the center point.
    • 10fps
    • ISO 100-12800, ISO Boost mode 25600 and 51200
    • 1080p/720p both get 60fps
    • Servo AF for video shooting.
    • Anti-flicker mode, eliminates flickers under flickering lights (e.g. fluorescent lamps).
    • Spot metering size 1.8%
    • Built-in flash with radio trigger function.
    • Mic and headphones connectors
    • Can sync time between 7D II cameras.
    • Lens electronic MF
    • About 100% coverage OVF
    • We’re not 100% sure about GPS, we think the camera may actually have it.
    • We mentioned radio triggering with the popup flash, but that may have been a mistake.
    • “Fine Detail CMOS Sensor” is standard Canon language for Canon sensors.
    • The camera has iTR (metering sensor-assisted servo tracking) just like the EOS-1D X
    • The camera should be compatible with f/8 lenses at the center, and maybe more points.
