Photokina Highlights Brand New Canon 7D Mark II

Photo by Canon USA

Every two years Canon’s Photokina, the world’s leading imaging fair, brings together camera enthusiasts from around the world to showcase all the latest in photo and video goods for the industry to see. This year, they highlighted their brand new and highly anticipated EOS 7D Mark II, their newest crop-sensor digital SLR, and a big improvement from the now 5-year-old 7D.

The new Mark II is based around a ton of new features including a 20.2-megapixel sensor, films in 1080p 60p, and has a new 65-point autofocus system. It also inherits some of the more sophisticated features from its full-frame siblings like the EOS-1D X and 5D Mark III. The only feature that seems to be missing in this camera is built-in wifi. Although this isn’t necessarily needed for professional shoots, most new cameras always seem to have this new aged feature, but let us know what you think.

The Canon EOS 7D Mark II will arrive in stores in November for $1,800 (body only) or bundled with the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens for $2,150. You can already pre-order the body only or kit at B&H Photo. You’ll find some photos below, but you can also check out a more in-depth overview, and video examples of the new camera here.
