What its this, a day for moaning? Back in the old film days the Canon EOS5/A2/A2e lasted over 6 years before it was replaced.

...back when I went to school, we had to walk up hill, both ways!

Don't get me started!

I had to get up in the morning at ten o'clock at night half an hour before I went to bed, drink a cup of sulphuric acid, work twenty-nine hours a day down mill, and pay mill owner for permission to come to work, and when we got home, our Dad and our mother would kill us and dance about on our graves singing Hallelujah.

I reckon there will be a new 7D but am more than happy with the current model. I think in the current fast consumer must have the latest smart phone race people have begun to expect too much of companies that make products such as cameras that really do not need updating that often. We have also gone through a global recession and Japan have had a rough time since the earthquake/tsunami so maybe that has added delays.
