Amazon has listed the Canon 7D as “discontinued” on its product page. However, the camera is still available via third party sellers on Amazon.com. We have been expecting to hear more on a replacement for the camera, possibly called a 7D Mark II, and we continue to see steep discounts on the Canon 7D.
The new camera is rumored to appear just prior to Photokina in September.
