7D - 70D - 7D2
9 months ago

Prior to the release of the EOS 70D, many would have thought that the specs of that camera, which were posted on some online rumour sites, could well have belonged to be that of the 7D2,  especially taking into account the similarities in sensor performance of the 5D3 compared to its predecessor.  Canon's 'incremental update' policy probably also gave credence to beliefs those rumoured specs indeed belonged to the 7D2.

In hindsight, those rumours were slightly off the mark,  although the other ramblings of a 24MP APS-C camera being tested in the field could well be the sensor used in the upcoming 7D2. The 70D, seems to have been fitted with some interesting performance features, such as the 7D AF module, customisation and 7FPS. Its quite a comprehensive feature list for a xxD body, and areasonable improvement from a camera to whom its closely related (7D) but not meant to replace.

Which brings us back to the question, are any inovative features going to be incorporated into the 7D2 that we dont know of, apart from the suspected WIFI, GPS, perhaps dual-pixel focus etc?  The release of the 70D may be a sign that Canon has heard past complaints from its customers  and will release a sucessor to the 7D with a substantial feature list Improvement

We wont have to wait too long!
