If raw files are over 20 mp each, how useful would wifi be? Maybe it's useful for JPEG only shooting. Owning an eyefi card that I don't use, I won't miss built in wifi.

Also, this is a wildlife/sports lens. I know that when I am shooting wildlife I don't normally have wifi connections.

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 Based on the specs alone, it makes the new 7D Mark II seems outdated.

I'd really like to see what the NX-1's high ISO noise looks like. With 28MPx in a crop, it's likely to be rather noisy.

Anyone been able to find out what grip it takes?

Canon BG-E16 Battery Grip

Given the new batteries are backwardly compatible, it'd be nice if it was still compatible with the BG-E7 but I won't hold my breath.

Yup. I'll take GPS over WiFi. And yes, I know it wouldn't be difficult to have both, but that adds more complexity and weight even if I leave it turned off all the time.

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.

the old one is smaller and thinner

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

I certainly wouldn't waste any sleep over something that can be cured with about $40 and 1 hour of time. It would be nice to have, but the issue is easily remedied with little expense or time. Knowing that I would have to add my camdapter unit to this 7D2 is a minor hindrance, but I know too that I will have much longer battery life with that setup.

Difficult to trust a website when they don't even have the specifications straight.

I think the official announcement said there was a new new grip, but that the batteries AND grip were backwards compatible. I take that to mean you can use the new batteries in the old grip in the new camera.

But I could be wrong.

The 7DII is £1599 in the uk, body only, which is a bit less than I was expecting...



7D, 450D | 17-55, 10-22, 55-250, 50 1.8, 580EXII | YN568II | YN622 x3 | Magic Lantern | (Still) Jonesing for a 70-200 2.8...
Turns out a gripped 7D + 622 + 580exII + 70-200 2.8 IS MK2 is BLOODY HEAVY! Who knew?!!

Oh wow! The AF is looking better and better. Not only is Spot AF and 4-point Expansion AF (both dropped for the 70D) but there's 8-Point Expansion AF!

I think I'll rent one when it hits the streets. Canon's claim of high ISO performance compels me.

I honestly think canon held back 4k video capabilities for future upgrades in a later 7dmk3. Shockingly odd that such a feature filled camera would not have this newly accepted standard. Regardless I think Canon has just built an indi videographer's video machine.

For the wildlife/sports photog this camera seems like a new fast machine. For the soccer mom/dad's this seems like an amazing video/stills camera.

hmmmm this will be something to rigorously test !! :) looking forward in playing with this camera.
