Take everything you have heard about the Canon 7D Replacement specs and throw them out the window. According to a new rumor report from Canon Rumors, the author is 90% sure that he has the real Canon 7D replacement specs and they are quite different from what has previously been reported.

As you can see, these are pretty different from what we were hearing before (which, let’s be honest, was rather unbelievable). The author of the post over at CR says he is 90% sure of these new specs, and if I am honest, these seem much more realistic to me than the previously reported specs.

20MP sensor is great, 60FPS at 1080 is awesome, 10fps is wonderful, 65 cross type AF points is insane. If these turn out to be legit, this will most likely be my next DSLR purchase. I have been living in no man’s land lately between review gear for stills and using my EOS-M cameras for video. These specs make my mouth water…
