Noticeably cleaner files or why bother with it?

Same fps

Better ISO performance by 2 stops
Same focus as 5diii
Dual CF slots - hate those SD's
Leave the buttons where they are - I hate the magnification button on my 5diii - hard to find in the dark
GPS ability
No flip screen - its a wildlife/action camera

And it would conquere the earth (or Nikon anyway).

+1 on the 12MP.

This is the only way to really improve high ISO, low light noise, other than small increments.
5D3 noise performance would require a drop to 8.5MP.

I know it will never happen so I would prefer they stay at 18MP so that sensor improvements would improve the quality. In other words, don't eat up sensor gains with more and therefore smaller(more) pixels.

7D II must have cleaner files noise wise
otherwise it is not worth it to me.

I get clean images out of the 5D III in the same circumstances the 7D was noisy
the 400mm F5.6 is shorter on the 5D III, only 400mm field of view (no cropping as 7D does)
however, even with 1.4X TC the 5D III files are cleaner, especially in higher ISO shooting

the more pixels on the bird would be desirable in 7D II if the files are cleaner

With the 1.4 tc on a 5d3 you've got about twice the surface area of sensor over the 7d...

Not with a 1.4 telecovertor. That almost evens things out.

not if you already needed the TC with the 7D

which actually seems to be almost always for me at least (even 2x)

I want Canon to use the 7DII to debut the future of its sensor technology based on...

1) analog-digital converter integrated directly into the sensor chip, along with noise reduction circuitry (same as Sony Exmor)

2) 3D-Color Matrix Metering with RGB sensor (again like Nikon)

Yeah, that would be great. And although they have to introduce a new generation of sensors sometime, it would incense 5D Mk3 owners no end.

Which brings us back to pixel density/reach. And to the fact that sensors are pretty much fixed at a certain efficiency no matter how many pixels we chop them up into.

I most sincerely hope my 5D3 is my 7D2!

Just for a fun discussion, so please don't take it too seriously.

I have heard rumors about the specifications, but nothing is solid at this point. This year seems like the year that Canon should release at least one new APS-C DSLR to replace 7D, 60D or both.

If one is indeed released, what specs would you like to see the most? I currently own a 5D3 and a 6D, but I also keep a 7D for telephoto shootings. I'd be interested in the new 7D Mark II if it gets the following updates:

1. Improved sensor performance -- Obviously, better noise
...Show more

The only things that would make me upgrade from my 7D would be:

1) More DR on the sensor
2) Less noise on the sensor
3) Better AF

I have listed DR and noise separately as I think they are both important and they are both currently lacking on the 7D.

First of all, I know it's CanonRumors and it's a "rumors" site. They're rumors, but they've had things right many times.

They just come up with this update:

http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=12537.0

Two interesting remarks:

Its said to be an incremental upgrade from the 60D. Although, weve heard that wifi and gps will be added to the xxD line with the 70D.

The image sensor may remain at 18mp as Canon separates the 7D Mark II with a new, higher performing APS-C sensor. This makes a lot of sense as I think the APS-C segment needs a jolt and not more of the same.

It sounds to me like Canon wants to keep both lines going. So, they'll once again cripple the specs of xxD to separate it from the new 7D Mark II. Kinda what I expected.

I seriously doubt that Canon will use the 7D2 as the body to introduce it's latest sensor technology. That will probably come on the FF high MP body.

So far Canon has introduced new sensor tech (almost) simultaneously on 1.3x and 1.6x sensors:
1DII + 20D, 1DIII + 40D, 1DIV + 7D.

With the 1.3x format gone, Canon will most likely introduce the next generation tech (almost) simultaneously on the high-MP body + 7DII.

.


Hardly going to be a jolt if it's the same ol' 18MP sensor and just adds wifi and gps. Already talk evaporated of it getting the 7D AF. That should be a given, as Canon's current AF offerings on anything below the 7D is crap. In fact even the rebels should get the current 7D AF.

No AA filter for max sharpness
New sensor tech foveon alike and 15 stops DR
RAW HDR with 9 shots and panorama stitching in camera
Sealed mount mechanism so no dust can get in
110%EVF with 1.2 magnification and 10 MP
5" touch screen with +1080p resolution for onsite editing
Wifi and 4G connection to self update
GPS
Integrated flash with wireless trigger
Crop modes 2x and 4x with 20 and 10 MP for long distance wild life shooting
5dIII AF like plus hybrid contrast AF
2xCF cards
SSD inbody
Compatible with wireless charging and bluetooth 3.0
16 cores digic processor
8K video 60FPS- 4k video at 120 FPS and 1080p video at 240FPS...etc
HDR video with continuous selective AF
Half the size

My pictures will keep being crap
