The glorious Canon EOS 7D
I got some new EOS 7D Mark II specifications (thanks) that contradict the specs I got previously.
These specs are largely identical with the spec list posted by CR, with a few differences. The source told me that:
- The EOS 7D Mark II sports a 20.2 MP sensor but it is not the same sensor as featured on the EOS 70D
- The AF has 65 points but only 32 are cross-type. Center point is dual cross. f/8 on center point
- The EOS 7D Mark II has a “pro build quality” (whatever this means in detail)
- Price in EU will be €1800 (that could mean something around $1,990 in the US)
Moreover, the source told me that the EOS 7D Mark II has already been presented to resellers.
This is the spec list posted at CR:
- Kit lenses: 18-135 IS STM and 15-85 IS (no STM)
- CF, UDMA mode 7 + SD, UHS-I

- f/8 on center point at least, could be on more points.
