Finally: The Canon EOS-7D Mark II

The Canon EOS-7D Mark II

I know that many of you who use a Canon 1.6 crop factor camera have been waiting too long for the rumored replacement for the EOS-7D. The Canon EOS 7D Mark II DSLR camera (body only) is now available for pre-order. If you are good to go, please use our B&H affiliate logo-link above to place your order. The sooner you order the sooner you will have your new camera in your hands. Right now I believe that they are looking at some time in November 2014. When this body hits the stores it is likely that it will be one of the hottest tickets ever; remember that some folks waited as long as six months to get their hands on a Series II super-telephoto lens or a 1D X…. If you order now and shoot me your B&H receipt via e-mail I will do my very best to have your order expedited.

There will be lots more on the new 7D Mark II and on the new Canon EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II USM Lens as well on the blog in the very near future.

Most will surely want to add the new Canon EOS 7D Mark II DSLR Camera (Body Only). To order yours simply continue shopping after ordering your 7D Mark II and do a search for “Canon BG-E16 Battery Grip for the EOS 7D Mark II.” It will pop right up.

Big Time Thanks/Only Two?

Big time thanks to Doug Schurman and Scott Mobley who each ordered two Canon EOS 7D Mark II bodies within minutes of seeing this blog notice. Each sent me their B&H receipts via e-mail; I will do my best to have their orders expedited when the shipments start arriving but as they will be on the top of the list they will likely now need my help. Scott also ordered two of the new battery grips and four of the new batteries, the Canon LP-E6N Lithium-Ion Battery Packs for EOS 7D Mark II.

Much appreciated guys!

  • Artie, I emailed you my order, 1 camera body, a vertical/battery grip, and an extra battery. I would appreciate you expediting my order as well. Thank You.

    • Arthur Morris/BIRDS AS ART

      Many thanks. I am saving all of the orders in a single e-mail folder and will follow up as the deliveries begin. artie

    Thanks Geoff,

    I copied the following from the link you provided. It is awesome that it can autofocus at f/8 using the center point. To me, the 7DII is a mini 1DX.

    AF System/ Points 65 cross-type AF points (Centre point is an extra sensitive dual-cross-type point at f/2.8, cross-type at f/8 and sensitive to -3EV)ยน

  • Max Warner

    I had hoped this 7D Mk II would autofocus at f 8 instead of only f 5.6, but I don’t see that in the data sheet.

    Blog paragraph 3 about batteries is understandable but appears somewhat garbled, or are my old eyes garbled?

    The new camera takes a different battery from the original 7D :). artie

    Thanks for the 7DII heads-up, I’ve clicked BH link from your site and sent you a separate email with a copy of my receipt!

  • Geoff

    Very interested in both the 7d ii and the 400 do ii as I need to lighten my traveling loads. Will you have reviews on both shortly?


    • Arthur Morris/BIRDS AS ART

      At present I can only comment on the available information; see Tuesday’s blog post for more on the 7D II. I will be commenting on the 400 DO II soon. It is not likely that the powers that be at Canon are smart enough to get either one or both in my hands soon…. artie The best way to ensure getting product in a timely fashion is to pre-order them asap.

  • Nick Sharp

    Can you confirm if the 7D2 can autofocus at f/8? Thanks.

  • David Policansky

    Hi, Artie. I clicked the B&H link on your site before this blog and pre-ordered the 7D2, so I’m assuming that will work as well. Last I saw it was November 28. We’ll see.
