Dear Canon, please say something!
7 months ago

Let me say, I know there are a few people here on this and other forums who won't tolerate any criticism of Canon, that I am not an "eager upgrader" at all. In fact, both my DSLRs are obsolete models (5D II and 50D), and they are both still capable tools.

However, I have been waiting for the successor to the 7D for some time now. A better sensor (higher pixel density, better high ISO performance) and probably better AF will make it a dream machine for bird and wildlife photographers.

I find Canon's silence regarding the development (or lack there of) of this model deafening. I mean, if Canon is to discontinue this line, then say that. If they have a plan for it to come out, then tell us. Why this long, frustrating silence?
