Today Canon has announced the second generation in the EOS 7D DSLR camera line. With 10 frames per second burst mode and a new 65 point all cross-type AF system with EV -3 sensitivity at the center point (and center point also works with f/8 lenses), it sounds like a very capable action-camera. Expected availability and list prices of Canon EOS 7D mark II are November 2014 and $1800 / £1600 / €2000 body only.
