Canon 7D discontinued – Great times to buy a Canon 7D

Canon 7D

 

It seems more and more likely that the rumours regarding a Canon 7D replacement are going to be proven right. A friend of mine mentioned an announcement on September 5. However, he doesn’t want to risk the wrath of the embargo gods so I got no more details from him.

Photokina in Cologne, Germany, starts on September 10, so it would fit with a pre show announcement.

Also, it seems that Amazon.com had marked the current 7D as Discontinued. I certainly did not see this on the UK site and a quick look on Amazon US shows it marked as Discontinued on the search page, but not on the product page.

Great time to buy a 7D

Of course, it all depends on your intended use for a 7D – and note that it has not been publicly announced any specs for the replacement (the so called 7D Mark II) – but heading up to an expected announcement or just after it is usually the time  retailers want to get rid of old stock, which in turn means lower prices.

I’ve shot with a 7D and it is an absolutely great camera and will fit most needs if you prefer a cropped sensor.

So, if you are in the market for a main camera, I would say wait for the 7D replacement announcement. If you want a backup, keep your eyes open for the deals ahead and if it sounds good, go for it.
