I have really enjoyed my Canon 7D. Even though they don’t use the name on first generation products technically I have the Mark I. Now I hear a Mark II version may be out by the summer of 2011. Some of the specs include:
- 26MP APS-C CMOS sensor
- 12 fps continuous shooting
- 3.2 inch OLED screen
- Wireless flash control E-TTL III
- Environmental sealing
- 19-point AF system (all cross-type)
I would love to pickup a second body and I have really wanted to get a full frame body. If this new 7D really has these specs I would have tough decision to make.

In addition to the 7D II the Canon 5D III was just released. This look like a very promising camera body. It has a better auto focusing system vs the current 7D. The only drawback is it’s full-frame so you lose some “reach” for sports and the price. I will wait to see what Canon has to say about the 7D II before I decided what to buy.
