Canon EOS-7D hard specs, prices leak

Canon logoMore definitive specs and pricing have surfaced for Canon's EOS-7D DSLR for the upper mid-range. A combination of a seemingly authentic product poster as well as sources for Canon Rumors points to the camera actually being a crop-frame (APS-C) unit rather than the full frame of the 5D Mark II but getting high-end features. It would have an 18-megapixel sensor (versus the 5D's 21) but, with dual processors, would support shooting at up to 8 frames per second.

It would also fix other problems common to all but Canon's highest-end cameras, such as increasing the number of autofocus points to 19, 63 metering zones and a viewfinder with 100 percent coverage. While 1080p video should be carried over from the 5D, the 7D should be the first Canon DSLR to have a digital level to help orient shots. A wireless flash master may also find its way into the camera.

While it's now nearly assumed that the 7D will be unveiled on September 1st, new pricing suggests Canon is pitching it as a rival to the Nikon D300s with a $1,699 US price for a body-only version. Three lenses are also believed to be accompanying the camera and would include an extra wide-angle EF-S 15-85mm lens as well as a walkabout-oriented 18-135mm counterpart; a third lens has fewer details but should be an L series macro unit using the new hybrid IS system to further reduce blurring.
