* * * Canon EOS-70D Announcement On July 2, 2013. Read latest post here. * * *
Now that Canon has finally released the long awaited EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM Extender 1.4 lens, the attention has again turned to the upcoming APS-C cameras. The 70D is currently expected to be announced (see earlier post) some time in June or early July, 2013 followed by the 7D Mk II camera coming before the end of the year, although some rumors suggest it may be pushed back into early 2014. Read the earlier post here.
The EOS-7D Mk II camera has been spotted in test trials and the current model is over three years old. I have picked this camera to be the best value in DSLR photography three years in a row. You can read my review here. Some say Canon may be planning on a 'surprise' announcement in July. Since the EOS-70D is expected the be the next DSLR to be announced, any surprise should mean the EOS-7D Mk II. I cannot wait to try out the Mk II body with the new EF 200-400mm lens. Keep checking back for the latest information.
