Then they wouldn't be EF-S lens, would they? :rolleyes:

EF-S lens for crop models but still fit Full frame - like Sigma, Tamron, Nikon, etc.

"Dual Memory Card Slots (Unknown configuration)"

Nikon D7000 uses SD memory cards, single slot
Nikon D7100 and D600 use SD memory cards, dual slots.
Canon 60D and 6D use SD memory cards, single slots.
Canon 5D3 has dual slots, 1SD, 1CF.

I see a trend....

If the 7D2 has dual SD slots, does this degrade its position as a "pro level" APS-C body?


Nope . everything seems headed for SD, SD is now cheaper, and even the 5D3 has an SD slot to help those buying it transition for the next generation.

Accept it people, SD will become the standard. As something else will in perhaps 10 or 15 years from now.

On another note... Please Canon, please target the sensor for stills, not video... Drop in AA filters would be an innovative feature that would make everyone happy...

Edit - fixed typo

Freudian slip? ;)

More of a typo (using a Nexus 7 whilst on holiday in the Philippines).

I doubt it; SD just isn't fast enough compared to CF on higher-end bodies.

If the industry moves toward SD, then we will most likely see SD-Array setups, rather than relying on single/dual card slots, to keep the speeds up.

However, CF isn't going away anytime soon due to how much it is used in industrial settings where SD is not rated, nor do engineers want to attempt to rate it, for use. CF is more durable, reliable, and can be far more effective for many applications than SD can ever hope.

If anything replaces current CF it will be a similar package with an updated connection interface, not SD.

Don't know about your point 1, since Canon didn't even fit the 5DIII with the fastest SD interface that is already out there. Besides, SD is already faster than the fastest CF cards of just a couple of years ago, and the CF interface is nearing its own performance limit.

Whether or not CF goes away in total is not the point (ref: industrial applications, which will be low volume anyway), but whether it remains in DSLRs, where industrial "ratings" (of which there are many to choose from, BTW) are of no consequence.

As to your last point, there are already two candidates out there to replace the CF interface (CFast and XQD), and neither is catching on very quickly, although the Nikon D4 supports XQD.

I have accepted the SD standard, even my cell phone accepts it

Some1 with large hands fiddling with small SD cards on an important assignment, or dropping them in woodland would be harder to find than the larger, faster CF cards. I prefer CF.

Odd, I have no issue handling micro SD cards, and even if you are 7ft tall, I suspect when adjusted to scale, a standard SD card would still be larger for such a person. How big can your hands possibly be that you can't handle an SD card? Sounds like an excuse. Speed is the only thing that I concede is still superior with CF, but I am not sure how long that advantage will hold.

Are any camera bodies actually capable of writing, at full speed, to the fastest CF cards? I am curious, I seem to remember the answer being no a few years back...

I would think a 1DX would come pretty close; 14 fps is a lot of data...

Kinda my point, how many of us are hauling around a 1DX?

I don't see much need for CF in the lower end bodies(this includes the 5D3).
