Re: Debating whether to get a 7d now or to wait for mk2

For anyone who has a camera to use, I would advise them to wait, as I believe (I hope) the release of the successor to the 7D should not be very far off.

But for your situation, as you don't have anything to use and your trip is imminent, I would suggest that you go ahead and make the purchase. You will need some time to learn the camera so you can take full advantage of it during your trip. It is nearly certain that even if Canon releases something, it won't be available for sale in the time frame you are looking at.
