Re: 90D. Well that’s disappointing for us 7D2 users

I have another guess.....there will be no 7DIII.

I can understand how those who are vested and love their 7Ds can hope for an upgrade.  I am not vested and with more objectivity I doubt there will be one.

Higher models are obviously going to migrate towards mirrorless.  That makes even more sense for those who want high shutter rates.  The whole camera market is seriously contracting.  R&D and the number of camera options also needs to contract.  Cameras are getting smaller and lighter.   The 7D series cameras were built like bricks and weighed almost as much.  The manufacturers see the future of high end cameras in the FF options.

So the final concerns might be what is missing on the 90D that could be reasonably provided with a 7DIII?  The water and dust proof are supposed to have been upgraded from the 80D.  The sensor is improved in addition to the increase in pixels.  The concern for birders seems to be focusing.  The assumption seems to be that 45 focus points means there was no improvement.  That remains to be seen.  It is possible that the 90D focusing has been greatly improved.  To my way of thinking focusing is all about the camera software.  45 points is not the issue.
