B&H has posted a video, in which they go out of their way to say that this is not the same sensor as in the 70D. Any chance they know more than we do? :)

I was hoping they would eliminate the optical low pass filter for higher detail/sharpness :(

Ditto, but I don't think that this was the sensor improvement that would allow to the removal the the AA filter.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

there are tons of little leagues out there year round

This 7D Mark II is not geared towards the Mom & Pop non-serious photographer that want to take casual pictures of their kids playing sports. (Sure, some will but it, but most won't know how to use it.)

burnett, for a long time now, you've always made posts suggesting that high-end gear is the only thing responsible for making great photographs. This is far from the truth. It's the photographer and his/her knowledge that makes great photographs. This camera alone will not enable Mom & Pops to make better photographs than you.

7d may have been the best selling canon ever

1. better focus to me means mom and dad can hit a moving object now
2. better low light to me means they can shoot little league at night better

for me this isnt an upgrade worth getting one over my 70d

besides you better have the glass

mom and dad probably have a 70-300 4-5.6 lens
this new 7d2 should help them

no me I dont feel until I can get a pro body I prob wont upgrade

I think this camera is geared for massive sales to families who wanna take sports pics of their kids
there are tons of little leagues out there year round

this and a dollar will buy u a coke

No, $1700 for just the body is way too much for that crowd. They're 70D and T4i buyers. 7DII is for higher-end sports shooters, and wildlife and bird photographers. The extra low-light focusing capability just made me decide that I'm not getting a 6D after all.

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.

Hardly. This isn't a camera where video is a major part of its market.

Can I be the first to say fail! Crop sensor in a 5D3 body and 2k. Can't see this selling well unless it doesn't get a refresh for over 5 years.

I've got a 7d and a 6d, this is the obvious upgrade for me, I want the crop sensor for better reach when shooting sports. Cant wait!

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

While it's utterly irrelevant to me...

I am so pleased that it doesn't have WiFI. I am also pleased that it does have USB3 :) If I get one, I can't see me using the GPS unless I get lost, so it would remain switched off. That seems to be the only features I didn't want on the 7DII. So the specs I have seen are better than I hoped for and as long as the new Sensor is a decant step up from my current 7D (in the noise area) I will be placing an order in the near future :) Perhaps I am exactly the average person Canon was thinking of?


Call me Amanda please :)

Can't find any information as to whether the 7DII comes with "Silent" shutter option. On BH site, it states "Electronic and Mechanical Type" in describing the shutter. For 5DIII, which comes with the silent shutter option, it states, "Mechanical Type." So what's the difference between these two?
