What happened to the no nonsense 7D community?
'7D2 owners unite!' :rolleyes: The 7D thread is simply called '7D Post Pictures Here'.

good question... I found that thread about as warm and inviting as a morgue in November... What about continuity? :eek:

So this was disappointing to read about the 7D II on the DPReview article on the pre-production 7D II they were given to evaluate:

"On the stills side of things, Canon has made remarkably few advances in sensor technology since the launch of the original 7D, and variants of its sensor still underpin much of the company's lineup."

Yea, but it's sort of summing up where I'm headed. The more I look into this camera, I'm just not walking away with the "WOW!! I got to get me one" feeling. My 7D is getting quite old and will need replacing at some point. I'm tempted to just pick up another low shutter count 7D and save my $$ until Canon does come up with something worth upgrading to.


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

willing to wait for real world reviews on this camera rather than listen to all the techies whinge and cry about video on a stills camera or how much better Sony or who ever else is than canon, if you don't like go elsewhere, its a choice, no-one is forcing you to buy a canon camera. I'm hoping the image quality on 7DII will be close to that of 1DIV and I would be happy, all the specs look great and this could be a great companion to my 5DIII, guess its just a waiting game and in the mean time so much hyperbole will be written about a camera yet to be seen, really quite funny

Yeah, I'm not sure yet either - my 7D still does what I need it to do. But...it's tempting, regardless.

Canon will sell plenty of the 7D-2's to existing 7D owners. On the other end, it'll be a nice opportunity for some xxxd or old xxd owners to pick up a nice used 7D-1 for less than the seller would really like to get! It's still a very good machine.

I've seen some very good high ISO photos using the 70D on the high ISO thread. If the 7D2 high ISO performance is anything like the 70D (or better), I'm in. In the Oregon gloom, I want to be able to put the camera at 12,800, crank up the shutter speed and not think twice about it. The 7D is challenged in this scenario. I want to be able to do this at whim, just like with my 6D, where I don't think twice about cranking up the ISO if needed.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

What are the chances of Canon releasing next rebel with this new sensor?.

No other camera can do what it can though... 65 AF points and 10 frames per second with the reach of a crop? This is the camera for every sports photographer who can't afford a 1DX and a 400mm 2.8. It will also be the choice of all wildlife and bird where the reach is a real advantage because optical cropping beats digital cropping.

^ I think the Sony A6000 has those stats equaled or beat....sadly it doesn't have the long(er) lenses needed but in 2015 supposedly Sony will bring those on-line.

But the extra reach is nothing, I never understood the hype of Crop Vs Full Frame Reach. I went from a 70D to a 6D and i will gladly say the reach difference is like half a inch on the image

I went from a 70D to a 6D and i will gladly say the reach difference is like half a inch on the image, I even put a 1.4x Extender on the 70D and the difference is again, hardly anything and for what it cost ($500), it's a waste of money.

Ummm basically if I have to lightly crop my 7D when photographing distant wildlife, the same shot with my 5DIII will need even more serious cropping. my experience is then a very physically small image that loses quality in print, I also enter photo comps and my files are then too small so I cant enter or have to uprez the image causing even more degradation so if you need reach and with birding you nearly always do, you are better off with a cropper unless you can get really close or can afford longer focal length lenses. As I am an L lens person only (in general) Id rather spend $2000 on a crop camera and use my 400m L lens than buy a cheap lesser quality 600 to 800mm lens or spend over $7000 for an L lens for my 5DIII. Top all this off with the fact that the 5DIII is not fast enough in many situations let alone the 6D!

If the last five years with the 18 Mp sensor that we've seen is any indication, I'd say the chances are quite high. In this vain I would guess that more than likely there will be a T6i or something along those lines with the 70D sensor springtime next year with one or two things gimped like a missing mode for the DPAF and only the 9 pt AF module. But I would say by that time one could save up enough money to splurge all the way for a 70D or 7d2. :)

It'll make a good backup/companion for my 6D...I think I'll pre-order...

Been planning on the 7D Classic for a few year(s) but decided to just wait for the Mark II... The Mark II can't possibly be a downgrade right? :P

For some, not enough of a sensor upgrade = downgrade. :rolleyes:
