The Canon EOS 7D Mark II has been rumored for some time, but Canon has finally made its announcement about its latest DSLR camera.

The new camera features a 3-inch Clear View II LCD screen, a departure from the touch screen of Canon cameras that came before it, with a Full HD screen resolution that’ll make images sharper and crisper than before. The new Canon EOS 7D Mark II also features a metal alloy body that is both water and dust-resistant, ensuring that your new Canon camera will brace the elements.

We’d heard earlier that the new EOS 7D Mark II camera would possibly have a 24MP camera, but it looks as if Canon decided to remain conservative on its camera with a 20.2MP camera that’s a bump up from the former 18MP, but isn’t quite the camera bump we were expecting. The ISO 100-16000 range should provide an improved noise reduction so that your photos are more appealing than they’ve ever been.

Six dual DIGIC 6 image processors, a 65-point, cross-type autofocus, Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus, a built-in GPS receiver, 100% field of view Intelligent Viewfinder II, 10fps continuous shooting, and an EOS Scene Detection System with improved pixel precision should enhance your already-excellent images.

The Canon EOS 7D Mark II DSLR camera is now available for pre-order and costs $1,799 and can be pre-ordered from B&H Photo, Adorama, Amazon, and Camera Canada. Camera Canada will allow you to lease the new EOS 7D Mark II camera for $65.70 monthly, and Amazon says that Canon’s latest will be released on November 28. You may want to wait until then and pick it up for a Christmas gift, but early adopters can go ahead and pick one up.
