Canon have today issued a statement stating that EOS 7D Mk II is about to arrive in stores next week.

And also some lens offers when purchased alongside.

What is interesting is that it is the biggest ‘pre order’ camera so far in the EOS digital lines history (UK).

And why manufacturers are expecting lower unit sales this year, it proves there is still life in the SLR yet.

Still the best camera type for most who want more than snaps.

Here are the official details:
