Canon’s new crop-sensor flagship improves on almost all of the original EOS 7D’s specifications. The EOS 7D Mark II boasts a 20.2 megapixel sensor, up from 18 megapixels, can shoot at up to 10 frames per second, up from 8, and has an ISO range from 100-16,000, up from 100-6400.

In addition, the EOS 7D Mark II is said to provide improved autofocus functionality, and smoother tracking when using the DSLR’s video mode.

While Canon has yet to announce an Australian pricing, it is expected to be in stores in mid-November and in line with the US pricing of USD$1,799 (AUD$2189, including GST) for camera body.

In addition, Canon introduced three new lenses, the EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM pancake lens, the EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5/6 IS STM zoom lens, and the EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II USM super-telephoto lens.
