As Canon has merged 1D and 1Ds series into 1D X, it is rumored that the current 60D and 7D will be merged into 70D, becoming the top model of Canon’s APS-C line-up. It will be equipped with pro features, increased performance, and have better construction.
It is getting hotter when 7D will be upgraded with full-frame sensor and is said to be Canon’s rumoured entry-level full-frame camera. What’s the series’ name? It can be 7D Mark II or 7D2. Both 70D and 7D Mark II/7D2 are expected to come in September 2012 at Photokina.
Nikon is also rumored to release an entry-level full-frame camera, D600. According to latest rumors, D600 will have built-in AF motor and such features as 24.7MP full-frame sensor with 39 AF points, ISO up to 25600, and Full-HD recording. It is expected to be launched in June or July 2012.
