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.

If it weren't for the competition, the 7dii probably would have been priced over $2000. Thank you competition.

I love the people who said they are glad it doesn't have WiFi... If you don't like it, turn it off! I'd rather have WiFi than GPS personally.


With WiFi you can transfer images to your PC, or to your phone for remote uploading, editing, viewing, deleting, etc.

See what your sensor sees, allows for odd mounting of your camera when you can't see the viewfinder.

Remotely adjust camera settings.

Use it as a remote to activate the shutter.

true but its a proof that tech is there and can be used. its just Canon decided not to use it or is not capable to make it....

That's the point... thank you. We have accustomed to have the big two, Canon and Nikon to be on the cutting edge when it comes to camera feature and performance... something evolutionary. However, 5 years wait and still behind industry standard is really alarming. I mean, without 4K video, it's not even future proof.

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.

Yup, appears to be an evolutionary upgrade to the 70D's sensor. Same number of pixels, but a few enhancements elsewhere.

For high angle, low angle, type work either articulating screen or wifi is a huge help. Interesting that neither were given as an option here.

Kelby said "High ISO performance it's the best I've ever seen from a crop sensor."

Interesting bold statement there, but I take the message meaning it's not near the same level as a FF sensor.

That would take a revolutionary advancement, not just evolutionary, to get the same ISO noise level as pixels 2.5 times bigger.

The dual cards will be great when I add this as a third body for weddings alongside my 5d3's.

Is it just me or does it seem rather small in size compared to the Original 7D? Looks more like the 70D, 6D Style body.

Edit: Also looks like the Battery grip sticks out on the left side. I find that so annoying and one of the most distracting things on my 70D.

Don't care personally, Magic Lantern will be on this really quick and judging by the specs, Will have 1080p RAW which i prefer over 8 bit h264 4k.

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

That will be a while; it just came out last year.

A new one according to the Canon web page.

Really? I'll be surprised if it even beats the $600 Sony A6000.

if it truly holds up low light performance similar to the 6D and has more reliable AF than the original 7D then i will buy one instead of grabbing a used 1DmkIV. for sports i would love to see a keeper rate on shots in focus that beats my 1DmkII which smokes my 7D in everything except low light
