Another update on the oft-rumored Canon 7D Mark II points to a release date sometime in the first half of 2014. Previous rumors pointed to a second quarter announcement for the camera, so this latest update remains consistent.
A couple of key new pieces of info point to a price point around $2000 and its positioning as a pro APS-C camera. Additionally, the 7D Mark II is rumored to feature a variation of a new AF system from an unannounced EOS 1 Series camera.
See the below list of previously rumored specs.
Canon 7D Mark II Rumored Specs
- 24.1mp APS-C Sensor
- Dual DIGIC V
- Dual Memory Card Slots (Unknown configuration)
- 61 AF Points
- 3.2? LCD
- Build quality like 5D3
- GPS & Wifi
- $2199 ($500 more than the 7D at launch)
- ISO Performance to get close to the 5D3
- “Lots of video features”
This older spec list still meshes with the new tidbits about the camera that came in the latest rumors today.
If the camera is coming during the second quarter of 2014, as the previous rumors indicated, I still expect to see it just prior to NAB 2014, which kicks off April 5, 2014.
