The ever popular 7D Mark II rumors have cropped back up due to a supposed leak of an image of the camera along with its supposed specs, claiming its announcement will come at next week’s photokina show.
According to the leak, the 7D Mark II will feature a dust proof body made of magnesium alloy. The biggest upgrade over the original 7D seems to be its 20.2-megapixel CMOS sensor, 65 point auto focus system, and an ISO of 16,000. Canon Rumors also mentions an internal intervalometer, allowing for timelapse shots without the need for an external device. Here’s their full list of projected specs:

The differences between this model and the original 7D, don’t seem to be as big as the jump in quality the 5D saw with its series’ upgrades. Though the new auto focus (reminiscent of the wonderful 70D) is nice, as is the whopping 16,000 ISO, something Canon Rumors themselves thought was just a typo at first. They also suggest an availability of October or November 2014.
However all of this has yet to be confirmed by Canon, so we’ll have to wait and see if they do in fact announce it at or prior to photokina.
Be sure to stay tuned for more, as IBC and photokina unfold in the coming days.
