Other than the better AF, whats the great difference between this and the 70D? I'm sure the build quality is better, but If those are the major differences, isn't that a bit underwhelming ?

The AF is the main selling point, but better build, faster (and selectable) FPS, better ISO noise, faster processor (dual digic 6 vs digic 5), dual memory cards, much larger maximum burst size, are all enhancements.

Well I havent been on the forums in quite some time. Thought I would drop by and check out the buzz on the 7DII announcement. Looks like a lot of pissed off people already and a production model isnt even in a consumers hands yet.
Thanks

Actually, compared to most other Canon camera releases, the general opinion on the forums is pretty high for the 7D2.

The awesome capabilities of the 7D2, both known and not-yet-known, will make it difficult for people to come up with excuses for their poor photography. I'm sure I'll come up with something...

But seriously, I think technology has come so far, even when you consider that Canon's sensors are behind in the race, that a camera's features really differentiate one brand from another. Each manufacturer has something special to offer and, if we took the best technologies from each, we'd have a near-perfect camera. Let's call it a Canikonysonic.

I haven't pre-ordered (yet ;)), but I think the spec sheet looks great for my needs. My interests are birds, wildlife, and airshows - and I prefer to operate with two bodies. For several years, I've been using a pair of 40Ds, and patiently waited for this 7D2 camera body to be released. The improved AF, ISO sensitivity, and shutter frame rate are what appeal most to me.

So while betting that the rumors were true, a few weeks ago, I picked up a 7D classic from B&H - which included a spare battery and a 16GB Sandisk CF card - all for $999. I've already noticed a big step up from the 40D to the 7D, so my plan is to now pick up a 7D2 and use it as my primary, with the 7D as backup. I realize the 40Ds probably aren't worth much, but I may try to sell them to help fund everything. I'm very happy with the 7D2 announcement.

Convert one of the 40D's for full-spectrum astrophotography.

That's a great idea. Got any handy links or advice on how to do that?

Can the same be done to a 50D? Now I'm interested too!

With the 7D Mark II and the 6D being relatively in the same price range, which one is "better," or the better buy?

Depends on what your shooting, in a BIG Way.

Very much interested in knowing also. Care to elaborate?

That's like asking who is a better fighter. GSP or Bigfoot? They're in a league of their own. You really can't compare the two at all. I am seriously considering selling my 7D classic and 50D and buying a 6D to compliment the 7D II that I pre-ordered yesterday. Different tools for different jobs.

They really are polar opposites the 6D is FF and has a crappy AF system.

The 7D II is a crop sensor camera that has an AF system much like the $6000 1DX.

Anywho...

6D for low light, landscape, slower subjects...anything that will benefit from a full frame sensor, but you're sacrificing speed.

7D Mark II for sports, wildlife, general relatively decent light shooting...anything that will benefit from speed, extra reach and more pixels-on-target at the telephoto end of things, but you're sacrificing extreme low light/high ISO capability.

The wanting never ends. The budget ends, oh yes, but not the wanting.

I've mentioned in another thread if your shooting style is wildlife or sports get the 7DII.

If your needs are for everything else get the 6D or 5DIII.

Another assumption as we still do not know what the 7D II's sensor is really capable of yet.
