Canon’s 7D Successor to Contain ‘a Lot of 1D X’ in it, Coming Early September


As the rumor mills continue to churn out their dose of information, more and more information on Canon’s successor to the 7D is coming to light. Earlier rumors have pointed to a brand new, “revolutionary” sensor being in this impending beast, but new rumors have pointed out even more exciting use for those holding out, specifically, that the 7D replacement is going to have “a lot of 1D X” in it.

What does “a lot of 1D X” mean? That’s still up for debate, but the reports here seem to be fairly solid. The announcement is said to be made on September 4th or 5th, pending your location in the world.

Alongside the new camera body, Canon is expected to unveil a number of lenses, varying across various budget ranges. Arguably the most anticipated and noted lens is the 100–400mm replacement, which has been much the talk of town, recently.

While they might have been silent recently, Canon seems anxious to make 2014 their year. Photokina will certainly be exciting for all, but Canon users in particular should probably keep their wallets full.
