New 7DMk2 rumour - when?
Dec 12, 2013

Does anyone know when the next 7dMK2 rumour will be available. I've searched here and on Google, and I can only find information about existing and old rumours.

I do seem to remember someone saying that they thought there might be a new rumour this month. Can anyone confirm?

There was a rumour that the next rumour would be bollox, but until the rumour of the rumour arrives we can only speculate on the content.

Anyone can start a rumour. Maybe you could start a new 7DII rumor that says Canon has decided to drop development on it in favour of a black and silver 7Fd which has a unique set of features designed to reinvigorate the photographer with a good dose of nostalgia and inspire them to take photos that look like they came from a 1970's film camera complete with micro scratches on the emulsion unique to every individual sensor on each camera.

Seriously, if Canon doesn't come out with a replacement next year, it'll be time to reevaluate and go elsewhere.

Until the rumour is released, it will all be speculation. None of us here actually know when the updated rumours will be released.

There is a rumor that a new rumor with start tomorrow and then possibly a completely different rumor next week.  The rumor is only rumored so it's uncertain how certain any given rumored rumor will be at this point.  The certainty of the uncertainty can only be speculated on at this point as the rumored rumor is still only a rumor.

Her answer was that she knows for sure the new release will be on Feb. 29, 2014.

She never mistakes.

Seriously,

I think you're posting on the wrong thread. There's a rumour going around that some dpr threads about rumours aren't supposed to be taken seriously.

if Canon doesn't come out with a replacement next year, it'll be time to reevaluate and go elsewhere.

She's a fake.  The 7dm1 will be released on March 15th.

I have a good source from Japan (sorry, I can't reveal it) that there will be a new rumor released

in the first quarter of 2014. Very exciting!

"Confirm" a rumour?
In reply to nick101, Dec 12, 2013

Sseriously, if it can be confirmed, it is not a rumor.

I am in no hurry to replace my working pair of 7D cameras just yet. Life is really quite good right now.

I wear a badge and pistol, and, primarily with 7D cameras, with 10-22mm and 100mm Macro L lenses, shoot evidentiary images at night, which incorporates elements of portrait, macro, still life, landscape, architecture, PJ, and occasional action. During personal time, I enjoy using both Canons and Nikons.

As the owner of 5D3 we non 5d3 owners feel you have the best thing going. Sorry, I mean where are we going, constantly on the edge fearing a new camera on the horizon that makes your current model feel redundant?

I need to confirm that it's a rumour. I have a 7D which takes perfectly good pictures and works extremely well in every respect. However, I read somewhere that it'll stop working when the next rumour of a 7D2 appears.

Also, until the rumour is confirmed, I can't post my next question which will be about whether to replace my perfectly satisfactory 7D with the rumoured 7D2 or wait for the not-yet-rumoured 7D3.

It's all so frustrating
