Canon 7D Mark II Release Moved Up To October 30th

By Anthony Thurston on October 17th 2014

When Canon’s 7D Mark II was announced back at Photokina the company said to expect the new high end APS-C body sometime in November. It seems that the body will come sooner, as is now listing the expected ship date as October 30th (in the US at least).


It is always hard waiting for a body from announcement to release. So, it is always welcome news when a camera or lens comes sooner than expected. I am particularly happy because that means I may be able to get my hands on the 7D II for our coverage of PhotoPlus at the end of the month, which would be incredibly awesome.

If you haven’t already pre-ordered your 7D Mark II, you can get your name on the list and hopefully get one of the first available copies come October 30th by pre-ordering the body ($1799) or kit ($2149) today.

    Does this mean the 24mm Pancake might release earlier too?

    B&H probably has a better price than Amazon. The B&H package for the 5D Mk III was $500 less than Amazon.

    The price looks big, at last for me. Luckily, the price for the 7D Mk I has dropped in the stores. So, a professional photographer can make a mindful decision based also on his wallet.

    Haha not that it matters too much, this camera is going to be backordered for a little bit anyway since so many people supposedly are wanting this thing…

    This is fantastic news! Very excited to see what this camera is capable of in real world shooting scenarios.
