Yikes on the MSRP. I'm spoiled on what I paid for my used original 7D.

Can't wait to see some of the reviews.

I can't wait to read some reviews. Dual Digic 6 processors, 10 fps continuous shooting.... that thing sounds like a beast.

I think the starting price is great for the features the Mark II has! Also, once we get past the initial release period (or sometimes when a retailer is looking to make a splash), we'll see deals for a few hundred less.

A couple hundred more than a 70D for a pro body and way better performance? the price is not surprisingly at all. Even at 2K it would be worth it.

Anyone know off the top of their head who this camera is tailored for?

With the 65 cross-type AF and the 10 fps, it looks like on paper it could be a good sports shooter as a 1.6x crop and a super telephoto.

At the MSRP price of the $1199 for the 70D, it's worth it to pay a but more but with the sales at Adorama, $799 for a 70D and Canon printer, that's very hard to beat.

I'm curious as to how the sensor differs from the 70D? I've watched the B&H video add, and the narrator states it is not the same, but doesn't elaborate. Both are 20.2 megapixels, both are CMOS, both are APS-C.

While there's big improvements for speed, such as Dual Digic 6 processors, dual card slots, and more AF points, I'd like to know how or what sensor is being used that differs from the 70D. Also it takes dual processors just to bump the burst 3fps? Granted the buffer is much larger, which has to be due to the dual processors.

I may pick one up later on, but not enough to push me to replace my 70D. I do like trying to shoot motion, BIF and such, but still 3fps is not that much more, for me anyhow.

The only thing most people care about is the sensor.

If this is using the same sensor tech as all the other recent Canon Ef-S models this will be an enormous fail. The fact that the press releases don't specifically mention low light capability probably means this sensor is more of the same. :(

Coming from a mirrorless camera, I'll take all the auto focus features I can get. That slow hunting focus will drive you insane after a few dozen missed shots, even in good light with a static subject.

FWIW, Canon Rumors posted a link on their site to this guy's high ISO samples. Not the best examples, IMO, but it's at least something if you're looking for something --

Without doing any side-by-side comparison, the shots look pretty good to me up to ISO 12800.

I think this can be a great pretty good sports body.
