I had a 7D, it got stolen and have bought a 5D purely for the low iso and full frame depth of view. I think it's great but I really miss the autofocus of the 7D.
What the 7D Mark II should have:
- Bigger sharper LCD
- Superfast liveview autofocus
- Auto ISO to work in the ISO bracket you specify, also enable setting of minimum shutter speed
- In camera HDR
- All buttons are customisable and have a mini lcd text/icon that shows what the function is.
- slightly smaller size
- Clean ISO
- Spirit Level always visible on top lcd and screen.
- In-camera stabilisation (to be used for non-is lenses, you can turn it off when you want proper in-lens stabilisation)
- ultrahigh megapixel count to allow digital zoom
- ability to fit 3d lens and create 3d pictures (that show in 3d on the lcd)

I can dream....

^ I like that list.

My only reason for not buying one right now is it's 18mp on full cropper.

No thanks. High ISO suffers.

Either reduce it to 14mp, or develop some totally new tech that can allow one to shoot at 1600 with the same noise profile as the Mk IV.

- True weather sealing would be nice.
- My only real issue with it is the way the fps slows down in some lighting conditions.

this and I would be a happy camper. a bit cleaner ISOs obviously, and the rest but really, nothing too significant.

high isos are really clean comparatively on the 7d! I compared the 7d with noise reduction off compared to a friends d300 and the 7d was clearly better. About 2/3 of a stop. sometimes 1 stop! Now Im sure the new d7000 is a little better but the tests you see online of the d7000 at high isos are usually with it set at high Noise reduction.

How about multiple exposures on one image, I know the nikon d3 has this function, would be usefulish for sports etc.

Save on Photoshop time.

Focus accuracy and consistency on the 7D isn't good enough, even with L lenses. That's why I moved to Nikon.

C'mon...if it's a FF it's not a 7D that's like 5D III to me. The only improvement I'd like to see is the low ISO noise.

How about a fullframe sensor that used the inner portion when EF-S lenses are attached?


Nikon/Fuji.

I would like two things, and one of them may be possible with custom buttons but I haven't taken the time to figure it out:

1. Dual card slots (this isn't the "one thing")
2. I would like a button that I can press to take a quick shot of something. Let me explain. I like using a tripod and taking landscape shots. I always use a two second delay to avoid camera shake. Sometimes I'm walking from one spot to another and I see a bird or a deer. I try to take a quick shot but the two second delay screws me. It would be nice to be able to hit a button that quickly changes to one shot or high speed and also opens the aperture up to get a faster shutter speed.

I suppose I could set one of the C1-C3 modes for this but switching the knob requires me to actually take my eye of the bird to see the position of the knob.

I would LOVE one CF slot and one SD slot. There's no chance of only SD cards and one of each would make the transition from my 60D if I were to make it easier. But I'll just keep on wishing...:p

It didn't need more pixels--just better pixels--and an AF system that works every time.

I've felt for a long time that my DSLRs need a dual shutter button feature, with each button assigned to a different mode. In some cases, I'd want one button for movies and the other for stills; in some cases flash vs non-flash; in others, low ISO with Av-pri on one, and Manual with auto-ISO on the other. Changing these things in-camera is a ridiculous waste of time, and source of premature dial/switch wear. Turning an external Speedlight on and off is the worst, when using a long, heavy lens. You don't even know what tree your subject was in, after the distracting change.

Heck, make it three shutter buttons if there's enough room. One could be controlled by the dials, and the other two on the LCD.

7D needs
1. More accurate and more consistent AF ability on Primes
2. More accurate exposure... it's at least 1/3 to 1/2 stop under most of the time... tho EV can correct it.
3. 100% VF as cliamed..
4. Dual card slots
5. Inbody IS for all the non IS primes...
6. In body HDR processing
7. Give me the rule of third grid

I want my cell phone on it, metall sensor, survival kit, android software, wlan and a 3D graphic card to play video games.
