Likely too expensive for moms/dads. Most (not all, of course) of them will stick with the 70D or TXi series.

Upper middle class moms and dads with kids in sports were all over the original 7D, actually. It launched at a similar price to this 7D2.

because it was the most expensive camera at best buy...i still don't think canon is gearing this camera toward mom and dads looking for their first DSLR...maybe mom and dads that have already been shooting with a DSLR though

It is an enthusiasts camera, a step up up camera, a cross over for pros who like to bird or shoot sports or something that needs more reach. A backup for everyone with a 5Dmkiii that likes the idea of 10 FPS and the different look of a crop for a lot lower price than a second 5Dmkiii. A new piece of gear for everyone with a 7D.

With all the speculation on this camera and all the threads dedicated to it, how can this be pigeonholed as a luxury good sold at BB for the upper middle class. I don't think the moms and pops were the vast majority of the thread posters or lurkers.

The big selling point for a beginner DSLR shooter is the sound that the 7Dii can make. clickla-cla-cla-cla-cla in Jpeg mode. woooah I want...

Yup... it got me as a beginner 6fps is plenty. It's taught me to be predictive, patient and has made me learn where to be.

less pray and spray = good.

I might have considered the 7Dii to replace one or both of my 7D cameras if:

1. It had A/F capability at f/8 to allow me to use my 400mm f/5.6L lens with a 1.4x TC and retain auto focus...

2. It had audio record capability to add verbal information to images...

4. It had radio controlled flash capability to interface with the 600EX-rt "type" flashes. The optical trigger capability leaves me flat and is certainly not ground shaking...

5. If it had ISO 25 capability for long exposure work without needing a ND filter...

6. If it had dual memory card capability...

While I know that video and super magnum ISO sell cameras, I don't shoot video with my DSLR cameras and don't usually go much above ISO 400 in normal shooting so much of the hoopla about the 7Dii doesn't interest me one whit...

The A/F (if it works as touted might peak my interest a bit)...

BTW: I would also wait until these cameras were available on the refurbished market. That is the ONLY way I will purchase a camera and have bought my last four cameras as refurbs. I paid a bit over $850 USD for one of my 7D bodies and a bit over $900 for the other.

i was thinking about that 10 fps...and thinking how great that would be...then i realize that i pretty rarely machine gun my camera...i mean there are instances where you need to...but i think more often than not 10fps would lead to a lot of similar looking shots

reminds me of a time i went to the zoo...the guy next to me was firing off probably 10-15 shots at a time...i kept thinking of the hell that must be when you get home

Yup... I rarely go into high speed mode.

ONLY time.... ONLY TIME... that 10+fps is good is ball/bat hitting times or golf club swings and such. tennis serves etc.

beyond that running, football etc... you can get by with less. 6fps is adequate.

Yeah 6ps is awesome, but these days, they may feel a lessor man if it's slower than 10fps.

In BIF and sports photography, the difference between 6 fps and 10 fps is HUGE. Shooting continuous fps at a dozing bear at a zoo is something else. ;)

I hear it all the time when I go with the camera club shooting at architecture. I guess some need to show off their rooster tail.

I think the 10fps is over kill thats 1/10 sec per frame
I would like greater IQ Id trade that for -5fps

observation

1. I think most of us are in the dark here on low light iq noise grain ect
2. everyone has speculated on the physical features of the 7d2
3. no one knows iq which I think is most important Ist that why we shoot?
4. commercials say nothing about low light iq

fire away
