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.

Its not the same sensor the 70d has the digic 5, its good in low light, however the new 7d Mark ii will have the dual digic 6 processor. I have the 6d and love the low light, but 4.5 fps is kinda slow for the sports I shoot, so I am going to pick up the 7d Mark ii for the extra reach and 10 fps speed for action. I will still do my portraits with the 6d.

That has nothing to do with the sensor but the AF system and digic processors. ;)

As a hobbyist, I cannot justify an upgrade at this time. Unless something really revolutionary comes along, my upgrade timing will be based more on need (a problem with my current gear) than on features. If my current equipment were to go south, I'd have a tough decision between the 5DIII and the 7DII; I can afford either, I love the 5DIII, but that would be a painful purchase.

If the 7d2 proves to be very good in iso and DR, over past crops, the 5d3 may actually drop in value, many people moved to the 5d3 for what is could do over the 7d and even over the 1d4, but I could see a segment of users switching to the 7d2 potentially. It depends on real world comparative results though.

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

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

After hearing the Canon rep for myself, I am more suspicious than ever that it's mostly the same sensor: that any image quality improvement will be minimal. Hope I'm wrong. :)

Regardless, still looks like a great new camera for wildlife photography.

Don't see enough of a change from my 7d to justify a $1,000 hit for what I use my crop camera for. Sticking with 7d and focusing on glass.

That's the big one for me. I would love to see a comparison of the 7D and 7DII IQ-wise. All the bells and whistles clearly go to the 7DII but if it's doesn't smoke the 7D IQ wise, I can live with the crippled feature set of the 7D.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

No. Happy with my 70D and even if I wasn't, the 7D mk 2 is too expensive.

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.

I'm hoping that there's an offer at the Photography 2015 show to make a nice drop in the price :-)

Sony is skipping Photokina and rumor has it that they have some new 45mp FF sensor in the works.

Sounds suspiciously like the same ol' 45MP sensor in the a7R. Oh wait, that is a bit different...I was just assuming that all camera manufacturers sat on the same ol' sensor and made teeny tiny subtle minute minuscule incremental improvements. :p

BTW, I had to vote "no" on the poll, even though the 7D II is on my wishlist. A 100-400L II could have pushed me over the edge, but for now the 7D II doesn't factor in my plans.

I am not in a hurry to buy one anytime soon, either. My 7D does not get used nearly as much as my 5D3, so I can afford to wait until the price drops, the body becomes available via Canon refurb, or via the Canon Loyalty program.

Still need real world review.

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

Very best,

this is what im waiting for because if the 7DmkII doesnt impress then ill be buying a 1DmkIV instead. while thats a huge price jump the 7D2 should impress at least a little compared to the 1D3 and 1D4 considering the age of those two cameras even though they are still today amazing workhorse cameras. shooting under less than ideal light for night time college soccer id love to see some nice low light at iso 6400 or even 12,800 if possible. and by high iso tests i mean using high iso under bad light not under good light like the high iso tests on canonrumors that are complete garbage

I won't be getting one, however, I'll watch the reviews and comparisons closely.

I'd like to see comparative tests with 1DmkIV.
