Just curious to know who's going to be getting one now that the price is out.

Still need real world review.

It needs to be compared to the current 7D, the 70D, and the 1D3 and 1D4.

Very best,

I'll wait until I see some real world results from normal users. If it had a swivel screen I might have been more inclined to jump without thought, but the spec isn't quite convincing enough to make the switch to the Mark 2 a no brainer

Waiting for test results. However if AF is as good as it should be and noise levels similar or better than 70D I am probably gonna get it.

Swivel screen is ok, but to me not that much of a deal breaker. Both my camera bodies, T4i and 70D have it and I find myself not really using it much, other than it's nice that the screen is not exposed while storing.

That should be the real basis for aiding in making a decision.

They say it is not the same sensor as the 70D, however I haven't found anything other than that statement, to prove that it is not.

3fps faster burst isn't enough to justify replacing my 70D. I may eventually pick one up, but I doubt I'll be pre-ordering one.

I'll almost certainly buy one, but not this year. I'll be waiting until all the 'must-have-new-toy-NOW!' suckers have paid the instant-gratification tax that we have in the UK. By next spring the price will have dropped from the current £1600 to around £1200 - then us sensible people can get one.

^good advice, that's my plan or by then someone will have decided they want a 5diii and sell their 7d2 after absorbing the 'tax' for me.

well I have put my name of a pre order wait list but I wont buy ( or pay up ) until I see some iso comparisons between the new and old 7 d and the 70 d and I suspect there may not be that much difference ( at the moment all the hype is via cannons marketing people and I suspect that may be pretty sus ) but I will be delighted if there is a useful improvement in iso and noise improvement and cough up the necessary no problem for a new toy
cheers rob

Well its not small change, so yes I'll be waiting for reviews, real world opinions and in general an understanding of how the image quality (esp ISO and dynamic range,) stand up against the 7D and other competing cameras in the market.

Other features already have me sold, so its a case of hoping that the image quality has taken a step up as well.


That said if I had that kind of money I'd be tempted to get other things first - its a good chunk of cash that I could spend on other items I want/need/lust/desire - like a Stopshot or Stackshot or tripod head or or or or ..(lots of stuff).


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

Sold my 6d and lens back in early January, hoping Canon would announce this camera at CES.
Enjoyed using film for the interim and last nights announcement has sparked my interest in purchasing this dslr. Only problem is which prime to get.


Sold my first DSLR & lens = 6D (24-105L) & (40)
Now what prime should i get with the 7d mark ii?...

Not the same exact sensor as the 70d...

At the heart of the camera is a newly designed 20.2-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor. While that may sound familiar, given the 70D's identical resolution, according to Canon, the 7D Mark II's sensor is in fact an all-new design, with improved clarity over the 70D's sensor. However, like the Canon 70D, the new 7D Mark II brings over Canon's Dual Pixel CMOS AF live view focusing system, with some notable improvements with speed and sensitivity adjustments.

Or you can hear this from a canon representative yourself at the 2 minute mark
