After five years since the original came out, Canon is all set to launch the successor to the EOS 7D – the new EOS 7D Mark II. But although the camera is not yet official, someone managed to leak the details ahead of the official announcement at Photokina this year.
So this is what the new Canon 7D Mark II will look like. At least from the front, it looks pretty much the same (and like most other Canon bodies). But inside where you’ll find most of the changes. The new 7D Mark II uses the new 20.2 megapixel sensor from the 70D with the Dual Pixel CMOS AF, but augments it with a stunning 65-point AF system and a new DIGIC 6 processor.
Here is the complete list of leaked features and specifications:
- Rugged magnesium alloy body
- Dust proof
- 20.2 MP CMOS sensor
- Dual-pixel CMOS AF
- New 65-point AF, all points cross-type
- ITR EOS AF
- Continuous shooting: 10 frames per second
- Dual DIGIC6
- Max ISO: 16,000.
- RGB+IR new 150,000-pixel metering sensor
- Video full HD 60 p
- Built-in GPS
- Interval timer

Photokina starts on September 16, so we’ll get more details about the new camera, including the pricing, then.
