I was thinking the same thing. It makes me skeptical of the "6D Low Light performance" claim. That will remain to be seen. However I own a G16 and I have to say some of my best photos have come from that little camera I believe because of the better DIGIC6 processor - also used by the 7DII so perhaps we will see some VERY nice Image Quality.

I wait to hear from actual users what the low-light performance really is. Looking forward to an actual 6D/7DII comparison on that topic.

I don't think anyone claimed "6D low light performance". They referred to 6D low light sensitivity as for the -3 EV AF.

Shutter speed and automatic ISO speed control in P and Av modes: The minimum shutter speed can be set so that a slower shutter speed is not set automatically while AUTO ISO is set.
Auto setting: Slower/Faster settable to one of seven settings
Manual setting: Set the shutter speed: 1/8000, 1/4000, 1/2000, 1/1000, 1/500, 1/250, 1/125, 1/60, 1/30, 1/15, 1/8, 1/4, 0.5", 1"


YES!!!!.... min shutter in auto iso selectable up to 1/8000!!!!!!

Good catch. Finally!


Think new Canon lenses are overpriced? Lots (and lots) of data will set you free!

More info here - LINK (external link).

Is not the same sensor as the 70D. The micro-lenses have been redesigned to grab more light.

Great specs and just what Canon's crop segment needed. But how about a badly needed upgrade to the 6D?

Nope... entry FF camera. It is perfect for it's intended purpose!

Heya,

Fantastic camera for wildlife and sports. Fast. Really robust autofocus with -3EV low light piercing and great ISO performance? I bet it produces CLEAN files at ISO 1600 and ISO 3200, which is exactly what we need, which means with good processing we can make acceptable ISO 6400 and possibly even manage decent ISO 12800 files with good exposure and good processing. Dual DIGIC 6 is awesome. And 10 FPS? It's starting to sound like a 1D series camera in a 5D class body. But at the prosumer price point of $1700.

I want.

Very best,

Yeah. I see a useful budget wildlife combo. 7dii + tamron/sigma 150-600mm + 1.4x shooting at f8 ISO 6400 in low light BIF. If it can do this and under 3000 dollars ( for the combo), I getting one.

This camera may not have certain "attention grabbing" features that some people were wanting (like 4K video), but it does have a lot of features that are great news to most photographers who needed these "tweaks" such as the expansion of the minimum shutter speed option, EV compensation in M mode (I don't think anyone has mentioned that yet), great AF, uncompressed HDMI out, etc.
Hopefully the IQ will be good too. They're claiming it's not the same sensor as the one in the 70D.
If it turns out to be good, I'll be in trouble... I like my 70D, and love the articulated touchscreen for videos and certain still shooting scenarios. The 7DMII doesn't have those, so it's going to be a tough decision.

wifi is about a lot more than transferring files.

It amazes me how people just don't get that...

I wish I had EV comp in M mode for my 5diii. I'm glad the 7dii has this great feature.

bannedPermanent ban

so far rather lackluster.... will wait for sensor "review" before giving out final judgement.

no 4k
ok burst rate, while others have 11, 12, 15fps, sony had 12 in 2011....
ok mp, nikon and sony pushing out 24mp, samsung got 28... while MP is not the most important thing, sony manages to have higher MP, better dr and better color while also having low noise....

come on dxo post some info!!!

It would be helpful if you explain how you use wifi on your dslr. Many of us use iPads and smart phones so we will understand.

I don't see anything about video auto focusing like the 70D

Heya,

I was actually thinking more along the lines of the Canon 400 F5.6L prime or 300 F4L prime, with 1.4x TC or 2.0x TC and what kind of performance they would have from this camera's AF system with the ISO performance increase to handle the TC light loss factor. That way you have a lens that can actually move and focus as fast as the camera can tell it too (USM). The Tamron is not very fast to focus by comparison to the white primes. And those two are the two I think about, as they're affordable. Ideally I'd rather have the Sigma 120-300 F2.8, but then you're getting into the $4k+ cost range.

Very best,
