DSLR sales weak

You could still be waiting for the mkiii in a years time. Buy a good used mkii and enjoy it now. You will probably get most of your money back in a year.

Correct, wouldn't hold my breath waiting.

Both Canon and Nikon recently reported their final 2018 results, and the situation is pretty bleak re DSLR sales. Their accounting/finance folks are probably questioning the financial returns on any new DSLR bodies, especially crop-sensor models ... they all seem to be focusing their R&D investments into higher-profit full-frame mirrorless right now.


Personally, a 7D Mk III would be too late for me for 2019, since the birding nesting season is already underway (our local Great Horned Owls just laid two eggs), so I'll still be using my 7D Mk II and D500 for birding this nesting season.
