Just read that Samsung also released a new crop camera, the NX1. Based on the specs alone, it makes the new 7D Mark II seems outdated.

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.

for one you can use remote control to change settings and activate the shutter remotely.

works great on my E-M1.

While not exactly earth shattering, I have to say I can't complain too much about the overall specs as a complete package. Nice improvements being center point focusing at f/8, spot metering which can be tied to the AF point, ramp focus in video mode along uncompressed hdmi out and the addition of headphone out for audio monitoring. And all this along with the 10 fps and 65 cross type af points which is much improved over the 7D. For the price that it will settle out to in a couple of months its not a bad camera for what it is at all unless all you care about is dynamic range. ;)

Remote camera control. Besides, I use the DSLRController wireless setup with my 5D2 and I don't find it to be an issue, and the files are larger (marginally) than what is going to be coming out this camera. I'd love to have WiFi built into the camera and not need a secondary device for it.

It's probably cheaper to get a third party Bluetooth remote than for canon to add the wifi into the 7d. $1700 price point. I use a third party Bluetooth to connect my smartphone to my 5diii. Cost me only 40 bucks. I also have an eyefi card to tether to my iPad. For wifi, even with large JPEG it's too slow to keep up with my style of shooting.

Well, it might just be the camera all Nikon D300 shooters have been waiting for :) But does low noise at high ISO mean low detail? I will wait until someone else has tested it :) but 10fps and decent AF sounds like a winner... not sure how the small battery will last though...

Now to all the Wifi wanters, is it more to do with the magnesium housing than the cost? Or is it that Canon wants 850$ for their wifi unit?

I say good on Canon. Looks like they made a camera for photographers, not just a paper spec'd princess. Looks awesome.

Wow, never thought about all the options for the wi-fi. It is a shame they didn't throw it in.Wonder if someone will see the weakness or markets need and throw it in to the battery grip. If that is even possible. I also think the articulating screen like on the 60d would have been nice. I want to see an independent review, but I think it looks good, for what I would use it for(hobby).

Great specs. But what lens are available shooting at 15 fps?

Putting the sensor issue to one side, I'm not sure there's much more you could ask to be shoved in the body. You can discuss the merits or otherwise of wifi/touchscreen/flips​creen, but every other aspect it appears to be to notch. I can see the 7D2 making an excellent backup body to a 1DX for professionals, something you couldn't say about the 7D for a while.

Great on paper with an Achilles heel:

"Samsung NX Lens Mount"

oops!

I have plenty of Samsung products, including the Note 3. Great initial horsepower, terrible software implementation, lacking quality of materials. Decent products, I definitely would not jump over the fence for them.


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

Even though more MP could be good, if the high ISO quality is good, and AF is as good as it should be, I'm sold.

The 5D Mark III wasn't cutting it for me for wildlife when I rented it, and is too expensive/over priced.
6D really isn't a sports/wildlife camera to me either.

1D Mark IV could be good, but is huge and getting outdated. 1DX way too expensive. 70D might be good though.

Otherwise I'd have to switch to Sony or Nikon. Probably to a D810 if anything else. Which then requires more HDDs and maybe a new PC to store/ process 36mp images.
