I've been waiting for a long time for Canon to release the official specs on the 7D Mark II. Rumors are one thing, but actual features are another. I've been wanting to upgrade from the 7D to a full-frame. Not sure if I should upgrade to the 6D or to the 7DII.

Ken Rockwell:

The Canon 7D Mk II is Canon's most advanced APS-C DSLR ever, and the world's best APS-C camera for sports.

For sports, especially with the world's first system that can "shoot around" flickering stadium lighting, the Canon 7D Mark II is arguably the world's best indoor sports camera, exceeding the Canon 1D X and Nikon D4S which still require you use an arena strobe system indoors.

The 7D Mk II is a spectacular camera for general use. If you think you want one for general photography or action, get one!

For nature and landscapes to be exhibited mural sized I'd go the extra cost for the 5D Mark III in a heartbeat due to its larger sensor, but for sports and action in any light, the 7D Mk II can be beat only in some ways by the $6,800 Canon 1D X and Nikon D4S — and the 7D Mk II lets us auto focus on more of the frame than either of those pro beasts. Is Canon kidding? The 1D X only has AF sensors in the middle of its frame!

I have pre-ordered the camera and thought I'd get a spare battery at the same time. $100.00 pre-order on amazon. I will eventually get a spare battery but will wait till after I get the camera.

I am happy not to pay for a feature I won't use.

Regardless of the extremely tiny cost here... if it's a feature that raises sales then it could lower the product's price or in some cases the product must have a certain feature to even justify itself in the market.

No 4K video means the 7D MkII is already a dinosaur before hitting the store shelves. So mirrorless should continue to make market share gains on the antiquated technology of Canikon.

I'm not that shocked that Canon failed to join other industry leaders, like Panasonic, in providing 4K in the 7D II, but I hope they don't screw up the 5D IV with that omission.

Like Canon's other more pro-oriented cameras, it will use a separate WFT module that gives about 10X the range and better performance than built-in WiFi.

Camera also would need to be more plasticky to accommodate built-in WiFi. Canon mentions that built-in WiFi doesn't work well with metal clad bodies, such as 7D, 5D and 1D series.

4K on the 7DII would kill 1DC sales, so I doubt canon will start implementing them in their DSLRs until the 1DC becomes irrelevant (which is happening very quickly)

The occasional negativity on here makes me chuckle. Let's see: a top of the line AF system, 10 FPS, GPS, and so much more built into an intermediate priced body...what more could you possibly expect given the price? (Which is awesome BTW.)

This camera will be the perfect compliment to my Canon 5D Mark III and will be an outstanding asset for my sports, bird, and wildlife photography.

What will it take to please you people? This has better AF system than a 1DX and 10fps, dual cards, best video than other SLR, dual Digic 6 processors, etc. This is a beast of a camera who cares what sensor it is as long as it take perfect pictures.. stop bashing canon and order your 7d2!!!

What you forget, is that all of us wanted a sensor that is equal in performance to the dynamic range of Sony and Nikon sensors in shadow recovery at ISO 100 without pattern noise.

No pattern noise when boosting shadows at ISO 100 is what I needed to upgrade.

Thats exactly what I was thinking. This is the first time you have a FF and a crop that share damn near identical bodies with exact button layout.

There are probably lots of shooters (myself included) who use video very rarely if at all.
