If I had to pick one area, I would say that I enjoy shooting portraits more than anything else.

Yes, it's an assumption, but it's still APS-C vs. FF. Unless Canon has really and truly reinvented the wheel, this sensor will not have the same low light capability of their FF sensors. If it did, there would be absolutely no reason to purchase a 1DX. The 7DII is going to be an amazing camera, don't get me wrong...but don't get your hopes up thinking it will be able to keep up with a FF sensor when it comes to noise at high ISO.

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

Well said. Canon made very little mention of its sensor capabilities in its media release which speaks volumes.

Once people realise it won't perform well in low light / high ISO complaints will roll in.

Hey, it's always a tradeoff! There are reasons why many of us hold on to both crop and ff bodies!

Get the 6D. It's sensor is better for the lighting conditions.

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.


So Bigfoot=6D, GSP=7Dmk2. 5Dmk3 is who? Cain? :D

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

actually we do know what its capable of. it will be capable of converting lighting into digital signals that make up what we call a photograph :rolleyes:

if by portraits you mean people running around kicking or passing ball shaped objects in things some call organized sports then the 7D, 7DmkII, any older 1D camera, or the new 1DX will work.

otherwise if youre talking about normal portraits then a 6D will be a standout camera for the price

Other than the better AF, whats the great difference between this and the 70D? I

Yup. Apart from the vastly better AF, the better build quality, the much better ergonomics, the faster frame rate, the larger buffer, the dual cards, the better weather sealing, the better low-light performance, the AE linked to AF point, the 61 AF points, the roads, sewerage, law and order, etc...

What has the 7DII ever done for us?

Tease? Hah. It stole from mine. :p

That's ok. I bought it locally from a rental shop and they threw in a $100 rental voucher. On top of that, it was cheaper for me to buy locally than to order from BH. A lot cheaper. And to put the cherry on the cake, I bought the combo with the 24-70 f/4 IS for only $399 canadian which I fully intend on flipping. So that's a profit of $700 (give or take), meaning I really DIDN'T spend that much on my 7D II ;)

Hmm, that's actually not too shabby considering everything you're getting together. :) Just don't fall in love with that 24-70 for too long! ;)

Ha, right !

I feel I'm sick and tired of this camera and I probably won't even have mine for at least a couple of months! :)
