    ....so....who's thinking about the 7DII?

    Old news by now and I'm sure everyone knows.

    I was just about to buy a refurbished 7D (original) on Canon's site for just a little over $700 when the announcement was made.

    Any comments by anyone who has a 7D or 70D?


    To me, the 7DII looks to be a knock-out.

    Ok, I guess I'll answer my own question... I'm considering the 7DII. The specs look great. Was hoping to hear from people who are currently using the 70D for their feedback.

    I'm still shooting with the 50D. To me, the 7DII will be a huge improvement over the 50D. I rarely use auto-focus so I would like to take a break

    And cleaner high ISO would be icing on the cake for me. A win-win for me. What do people with newer Canon dSLRs think?

    Why thinking of 7DII when using 5DIII?

    Re: ....so....who's thinking about the 7DII?

    Super old thread, but I'll answer. I've owned a 7DI, I've owned a 10D, 350D, 30D, 5D, 1DsIII, 1DIII. I am not at all considering a 7DII. I think in general Canon has fallen behind. They've either been super conservative or really just couldn't keep up. The newer Sony sensors display incredibly high dynamic range, with low noise, Nikon uses Sony sensors too. Fuji is producing some incredible compact bodies with incredible sensors too. My original 7D was a noise machine, you had to be very careful to expose properly to avoid under exposing the shadows. It was very fast, and the AF was excellent, but the ISO performance disappointed me. On top of this, I believe Canon has been to conservative, resting on it's laurels and has been falling on innovation, whereas I hate to say it, Sony has been pushing the envelope in a lot of ways.

    I guess I'd say if you don't care about AF and are looking for high ISO performance, the 7DII is probably not your camera. The 7D's forte has always been it's AF system and speed, and if that's not important to you, then the advantages of a 7D wouldn't benefit you. You'd be better off with a 6D.

    For me, I just recently decided to take the plunge on a Sony A7r. It's an incredibly compact full frame body with more than decent high ISO performance, in a 36mp sensor. AF isn't super important to me either, but compact, lightweight, detail, and decent high ISO are. The new innovative Sony provides me with a body that is easily carried, and with an adapter allows me to still use my excellent Canon lenses. The Sony will adapt to just about any system and will accept legacy Canon FD glass that will make for some bargains down the line if I don't mind going full manual with my lenses. I've just started to experiment with the Sony but so far it's seems to be a well built, high performing body for landscape work. I'm enjoying the weight savings.

    As a 7D owner I can say it's been a fantastic camera so far, haven't seen many with the 70D yet but it's reviewed well from what I've researched on other popular sites.

    little description from me....

    In the five years since its launch, the Canon EOS 7D has gone from being a cutting-edge piece of technology to an apparent remnant of a bygone age. Not simply in the sense that its technology has been superseded, but also in that the idea of a pro-grade APS-C DSLR seemed to one whose time had passed.

    Canon clearly doesn't think this is the case and, just as it did with the original 7D, has applied truly pro-grade autofocus to one of its best-built bodies. While Nikon appears to be encouraging its high-end users across to full frame, Canon's range continues to offer a range of options. The long-awaited EOS 7D Mark II takes the strengths of its predecessor - highly capable autofocus and video - and builds on every aspect of them.

    Canon EOS 7D Mark II key specifications:

    20MP Dual-Pixel AF CMOS Sensor
    10 fps continuous shooting with autofocus
    65 all cross-type autofocus sensor
    150,000 RGB + IR pixel metering sensor
    Dual Digic 6 processors
    Enhanced environmental sealing
    Compact Flash (UDMA) and SD (UHS-I) slots
    USB 3.0
    Built-in GPS
    Larger-capacity LP-E6N battery
    Shutter speeds up to 1/8000th seconds
    Shutter rated to 200,000 cycles (vs 150,000 on 7D)

    When compared to its predecessor, the 7D Mark II shows improvements in many areas
