Hoping we hear something solid from Canon soon, regarding specs/price/release date - going to need a 2nd body soon for sports, and if I don't wait for this I might grab a 70D.

Wouldn't surprise me if they put the 7DII on the back burner whilst they develop some new sensor tech... then release the 7DII and 5DIV at about the same time, with said new super sensor tech...

Z..

Just buy the 70D now (the next time the price dips I mean, it's in between rebates ATM) and flip it when the 7D II comes out.

I don't care what they put in it, I just want them to make me want it.

I'll believe it when I see it.

They better have a serious sensor upgrade in it.

well i was going to get the 70d with tax return since it is down to about $900 with rebates...
but now I am really considering the 7d mii to replace my t2i.

I do occasional kids video and the t2i is just a PITA without auto focus as I dont have the ability to manually focus during video...

Anyone see any of the supposed enhanced video parts to this camera? so Tax Return soon, bonus in March... Think I can see one of these around my neck before summer (but wife turns 40 so bday party and our 20th wedding anniversary....UGHHHHH​HHHHH)


anyway..

All speculation until we see actual announcement. I've yet to see any believable specs being released/mentioned.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

The 7DII will have 5 axis IS built in to the body.

I may as well get in on this guessing action too!

I think my guess is more credible...

^^^
and if it is facing north - this 5 axis IS will allow it to levitate...
then we will see hundreds of problems with run away cameras,
if "north" means magnetic north
what would happen in the Southern vs Northern hemisphere
and a slew of wireless triggers..... :)

Gimbal mounted on a tripod, while shooting wildlife. Shutter speed 1/1600 or faster. 600mm lens, shooting open at f/4. Done while shooting wildlife.

Besides, any camera that can't consistently focus on a rock in broad daylight has issues, regardless of the other parameters. In servo mode, the 7D fails at this (it locks on perfectly in single-shot mode, though).

And shutter speed, handheld vs tripod and apertura have nothing to do with AF accuracy. They may give you motion blur, but that makes everything blurry, rather than giving you a plane of sharp focus just in front of, or just behind, the target.


The 7D has been a nightmare for me. Totally unpredictable focus with telephotos. Just got it back from Canon for the third time.

Regardless of how he shot it, plenty of people (to include myself) consistently get OOF shots from static objects with very high shutter speeds, subject filling the full center AF point, and plenty of contrast on the subject. It just happens with the 7D, for whatever reason(s).

Whether people who have used this camera and not experienced it, or those who haven't used this camera, believe it is user error as compared to camera error is the only thing debated. Having owned the camera for many years and consistently shooting in many different settings and sports with only my 70-200 2.8 IS II attached, I can be pretty certain it's not user error, at least not with my body.

I even went so far as to send it in to Canon twice last year with the 70-200 for them to re-adjust it both times (initially was sent it because AF was incredibly erratic and almost unusable). The last time it came back was the most tolerable (first time it came back it was even worse with inconsistent AF), so I kept it. So either the service center doesn't have calibration down to a science or the camera has erratic enough AF that they can't account for it all through calibration (or maybe both).


Is it just with telephotos for yours? That's how mine is. Just got it back from Canon. Afraid to use it. It's even worse when pointing up, which makes it useless for birds and animals in the mountains.

Toss in the low ISO noise, waxy AA filter, and decreased handholding ability, and the images are not pleasant unless all the planets align (when shooting wildlife and nature). Works fine for pets and portraits.
