Canon 7D replacement camera [7d Mark II] announcement is rumored to be at Photokina event this September. According to recent rumors Canon will test prototypes of the upcoming Canon EOS 7D replacement during the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brasil.
Previously Canon EOS 7D Mark II announcement was postponed for manufacturing reasons to Q3, 2014. Canon is planning to use a more advanced Dual Pixel version of the 70D sensor in the upcoming EOS-7D Mk II.
It is still not clear if the EOS 7D replacement will be called “EOS 7D Mark II“. The name will probably be different. The EOS 7D has been announced in september 2009. After 5 long years, Canon will announce a pro-grade APS-C camera, and it will be the flagship APS-C sensored DSLR.
