The Canon 7D MkII, successor to the Canon 7D EOS, is slated for a mid-September release, with Canon announcing the new camera sometime in the first week of September during the Photokina in Cologne, Germany.
During the recently concluded World Cup, there were rumors that a prototype of the 7D MkII made its debut in the sidelines. The World Cup was rumored to have been used as a testing ground for Canon's newest addition to the professional APS-C DLSR camera line.
