7DmkII rumors (serious attempt)
May 15, 2012

Since this is a gear forum and since I am a big fan of the 7D, I thought it would be nice to discuss the latest bit of rumor info.

"Two bits of info say an APS-C camera capable of 10fps is in testing, the same camera also has a variation of the 61pt AF system found in the 5D Mark III and 1D X. No mention of megapixels or any other features of the prototype."

That came from Canonrumors, and I know not to take the rumors to seriously. But considering the 1DX, 5DmkIII and what the 7D represented, I actually would expect a 7DmkII to be exactly this.

This has me hoping that Canon will solidify its 7D line, because if Canon drops that line I will have to cough up the cash for the 5DmkIII and wayyyy too expensive tele lenses.

What do serious 7D users think? A glimmer of hope?
