Yes.

And all AF points are cross type, according to the Canon press release.

I'm hours behind. Just noticed it on the USA Canon sites.

And the B&H Preorder screen for $1799.

I could think of a few nick nacks they could have done differently but overall, this looks like a killer upgrade where it counts! AF, Video AF, ISO, various Video features; and some niceties like dual cards, GPS, an extra 2 fps, extra weatherproofing, 200,000 shutter life, etc.

I'll wait for $1499, figure 1 year, but my 7D is going on the block in anticipation. The 5Dii will have to suffice in the meantime.

This feel like an upgrade even to my 1D3. In my experience, I very much have to with large size all the time and with that the buffer fill up faster. With this I could maybe shoot w/ mRAW and still have plenty of buffer. Which bring me to another down side of 1D3, which is the speed it write to the flash card, both CF and SD are relatively slow and not to mention the SD reader on the 1D3 in antiquated, I think it pretty much accept upto 16GB. There are some hack I could do like put it in the SD-CF adapter and format in the CF then move over to SD, but it's a pain and not reliable so in the end I don't even try to use it that way. The AF is another big improvement. I think I'll preorder this one and read the review between now and before it ship if there is any major downside.

Honestly thus far everything, including the price, sound really good for the 7DMII (even factoring in price depreciation).

If Canon can really clean up the ISOs some so that we can use more of its range with more quality and also have a boost to dynamic range that would be fantastic as well (and likely would tip a lot over the buy button).


Tools of the trade: Canon 400D, Canon 7D, Canon 70-200mm f2.8 IS L M2, Sigma 120-300mm f2.8 OS, Canon MPE 65mm f2.8 macro, Sigma 150mm f2.8 macro, Tamron 24-70mm f2.4, Sigma 70mm f2.8 macro, Sigma 8-16mm f4.5-5.6, Raynox DCR 250, loads of teleconverters and a flashy thingy too

When will we see these parameters tested?

Doubt the DR will be much different. The improvements they're stating seem to be around the microlenses rather than the surrounding electronics. Maybe a tad less ISO grain if they are managing to collect more of the light that falls on the sensor so the ISO gain can be reduced slightly.

I assume that the twin Digic 6 processors should help with jpg recording (compression algorithms et al), but can they show any improvement to RAW recording? Presumably speed of shifting the data will be improved, but is there any other improvement a 'super' processor can give to a RAW file. I always thought that a RAW file was pretty much everything the sensor can give you, but these things get cleverer every day :)

I feel that I should add that I am referring to the recording of the still images (you have to dot the i's and cross the t's on here I've found)


Call me Amanda please :)

There is no such thing as pure RAW in the Canon anyway, at least now. From what I understand even shooting in RAW, there are still a bit of processing applied. Nothing that you can change though, it's all in the firmware. Well maybe except using ML.

I took a look at it.. at first I was a bit "meh" at the announcement, but then I started to come back around on it, This camera does seem to be the ultimate Wildlife/Sports camera without breaking the bank or your back.. the D7100 doesnt even come close.. it seems Nikon is putting the D750 against the 7DII, and thats fine, but it also has less pixel density as it is a full frame body, meaning a loss in cropability... That AF system however.. ;D

That said, I still want to see samples.. I DO want a good IQ increase over my 7D after all.. the speed and AF system look nifty sure, but not sure they're worth $1800...

Man I' feel like I havnt talked about this stuff in a long time

The microlenses have been redesigned to grab more light than the 70D sensor - LINK (external link)

yep so you can see a 1% decrease in noise, whoopdedo.

I remember when the 40D came out and they said the same thing.

I'd be happy with the same features of the 7d but with improved low iso and high iso performance. Should be at least 2-3 stops better.

That... and better IQ of the 7d ...which shouldn't be hard.

Ah, I missed that, only looked at DPR, but other wise that is a burst of 3 sec or 3 burst of 1 sec.

While one burst of 3 seconds and three bursts of 1 second each might be the same number of images, it isn't the same in this regard - as soon as your 1-second burst ends, the camera will quickly recover buffer space. So one three-second burst might be five one-second bursts. Or might even be an infinite number of one-second bursts if the camera has enough time to completely recover.
