Disappointing 7D Mark II Rumor
Aug 3, 2013

CR's latest take on the 7D Mark II.

http://www.canonrumors.com/2013/08/eos-7d-mark-ii-information-cr2/

Of course it's just a rumor, but the suggestion that the 7DII may have the same sensor as the 70D is very disheartening to me.  My understanding is that although the 70D's sensor is much improved from a live view/video AF standpoint, from a stills photo IQ standpoint, it isn't really any better than the 60D's sensor, which is about on a par with the current 7D.  So if this rumor turns out to be true, from a stills photo standpoint, the 7DII won't be much better IQ wise than the current 7D--despite the almost five-year gap between the two.
