    Okay, so I'm not usually one to jump at these teasing rumours, but...

    7D Teaser: Canon EOS-1D / 1Ds / 5D Forum: Digital Photography Review

    that, as well as a few other sites, have revealed a startling image of... a 7D.

    It's a bit fast, after the 5D MK II.

    Still, Canon can improve it a lot, so why not? Only problem I can see is... why 7D? Could be not a successor to the 5D range but a different range altogether.

    I'm hoping Canon improves fps and more importantly, the AF. :blushing:

    Until it is on the shelf and selling, rumors are a complete waste of time. ;)

    from what i was reading elsewhere, canon is replacing the XXD (40D, 50D, etc) naming convention and using the 7D as the successor to the line. the 1d and 5d will remain, and will only increase in mk. numbers.

    there is a rumor flying round that the new crop sensor camera (60D, 7D whatever canon call it) will have less than 15MP - a rumor given more fuel after the release of the G11 which now has a lower MP count than the G10. It could be that canon have realised that MP war is over and the ISO one has started!

    A for names I have heard that canon want to move away from the 50D, 60D names since they are so easily mistaken with Nikon names (D60). Its not good marketing if your customers mixup your products and the competitions.

    I have even heard some who think that we will get a 1.3 crop camera as opposed to 1.6 crop.

    the 7d, again from what i've heard from others, is going to be a 12mp FULL frame body priced to compete with the nikon d300s.

    If it is a full frame, its not going to compete with the D300, as that is a cropped sensor. The D700, at 12.4MP and a FF sensor would be the more logical choice, if the new Canon is also a FF.

    Right, but the "60D" will.

    Rumor has it that Canon will release both a 7D AND a 60D (14.7MP crop sensor, video, improved AF-system).

    I'd be down with a high-ISO, 1.3 crop sensor 12MP camera :D

    yea, i know the d300 is a cropped sensor. i think canon just wants to 1-up nikon with a full frame body at the d300's price point. but yea...if canon does do both a 60D and a 7D, its more logical to think the 60D will be the d300's competition, and the 7D is going after the d700.

    one can only hope... :) ...and no, i dont see a point in speculating either, but just wanted to relay some stuff i heard. im not holding my breath any more than you are. :)

    The rumors on the 7D are gaining in validity because of several things happening that have accurately predicted the release of Canon bodies in the past. One of them is a SKU number appearing in a major online retailers database. Of course this doesn't tell us what the specs will be.

    Past sources which are credited as being reliable do say that it's going to be a full frame sensor targeted at the D300 market (price point). Full frame or crop, it doesn't matter, I've held for sometime as the cost of full frame sensors drops more and more bodies will be equipped with them. The only reason the 1.6 sensor even came into being is because of cost.

    Lots of Kwanonians are saying Canon won't do it because of their dedicated lens market for the 1.6. It isn't out of the realm of possibilities that Canon will move to do away with EF-S lenses... they've done crazier things before.

    If Canon does go FF on the 7D, it will catapult them well past Nikon until Nikons next release in that price point.
