The Canon 7D is starting to show its age and is now long overdue for a makeover, which is why Canon is well ahead of refreshing the DSLR. We cannot think of the 7D MK II as a complete redesign, but rather a refresh of some of its key features, and maybe a minor design change.
We have known that Canon plans to release the EOS MK II for some time now, but as yet we do not have details on its unveil, although its potential release date is March 2014.. However, we do have a few details on its specs, some fresh details seems to corroborate with several rumors we have already seen.
Review of the Canon 7D MK II specs — We know for certain that Canon is to upgrade the sensor in the 7D refresh, this could be 20-megapixel or 24-megapixel, which will also sport Dual Pixel CMOS AF. It has also been suggested that the Auto Focus system could be the same used in the 5D Mark III.
Other rumored EOS 7D Mark II upgrades could include 10-12 fps, WiFi & GPS, improved ISO performance and Dual Digic V+ processor. However, the feature that stands out will be weatherproof, which means you will be able to use the 7D MK II in many weather conditions.
As for the Canon EOS 7D MK II price, the latest rumor suggests a cost of around $2,000.
