1.5 crop DX with 1.3 crop option for an an effective 2.0 crop (1.5 x 1.3) (this is very cool for sports and wild life photographers, makes a 400 f/4 a 800mm f/4, no loss of light)

6 FPS (7FPS at 2.0 crop)

AF at f/8

100% VF

Shutter speed 1/8000

Flash sync 1/250 (also 1/320 for you flash junkies)

For you video supporters:

1080 / 60i (finally)

$1200 US

Available end of March 2013.

So what will Canon bring...but the 7D is already at $1200, maybe Canon has already answered.

I would expect Canon to compete with a 70D, especially (hopefully!) if the rumors of a price and feature increase of the 7DmkII are true. I think it makes sense to get the xxD line back to the quality of the 40D/50D and push the 7D line up a notch. The 7D has been good, but can use an overall upgrade to a slightly higher segment. Nikon might do well to release a D400 (which they should have done years ago) and have a similar line-up.

Clearly the Nikon is aimed at the 60D/70D price point range. Only now after many years is the current 7D at around $1200 so any new 7D will be at least $500 MORE. So of course it should be better equipped.
