Did anyone preorder this from Camera Canada? Did you get an email from them today asking for Canadian address info?

From CanonPriceWatch.....

UPDATE October 1st: The powers that be at Canon Canada have now required everyone who is taking part in this offer to fill out a paper form with a Canadian address. Canon only recently added this requirement, probably because of non-Canadians flocking to do the deal… Sorry about this. Please note, stores will ship the purchase to the address of your choice. So all you need the Canadian address for is the form.

Thanks. I've seen these (and more from the same source) two weeks ago at least.

Man, what a deal (steal). Too bad I don't have a Canadian address to use. How much do you think you can get for the 24-70 f4?

That is because there is no raw convertor for the camera available yet released to process or view those files. THAT is the reason everything you see right now is JPEG.

Scott Kelby took a couple of them for a spin shooting football and has a great shooting impressions video and JPEG samples including one at ISO 16000. Find it on his blog.

DPP handles 7D2 raw, so there is a converter that can handle those raw. It has been out since 9/29.

While the SW handles the RAWS, it is not officially supported and will likely undergo final tweaks as the production version of the camera's firmware NR Processing is finalized. No Journalist is going to publish results as fact until the convertor is released. The production version of the body is not even yet available, only pre-production prototypes have had preliminary hands on reviews. This has been pretty much the normal mode for previous Canon releases as well. You should expect to see real raws from the production version around mid Nov latest.

If a Journalist came out and put up RAW samples of a pre production version of the camera processed with SW that does not officially support that camera, they would never get another camera to test from that maker in their lifetime.

Actually no, Canon released the new version of DPP specifically for the 7D Mark II on 9/29. You must have missed the announcements that went around. The raw format has long since been determined, and it is highly unlikely they are still development and tweaking firmware for a camera that has to be in full production long before November to meet demand. Saying a finished camera is a pre-production model is just another marketing ploy to not scare folks off. If Canon stated that everything we have seen is as it will be in Nov, there would probably be alot of preorders that get canceled. Could there be a new version of DPP before Nov? Perhaps, but I personally wouldn't expect it. Firmware will have to be locked in within 2 weeks or so at the latest on the camera too. Once production starts, and cameras are in boxes ready to be shipped, there won't be any pulling boxes off and opening them up for firmware updates.

Canon's release notes:

Canon DPP 3.14.41

Supports images taken with EOS 7D Mark II, PowerShot SX60 HS, PowerShot G7 X.
Mac OS X 10.7 is no longer supported.
A function to delete the shooting data when executing [Convert and save] has been added.
For EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM, EF-M22mm f/2 STM, EF-M18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM, the latest lens data can be used, of which Digital Lens Optimizer’s performance has been improved.
Fixed a phenomenon that a file may not be converted and saved if specific character is used in the file name’s first character.

I haven't followed Scott much at all but he made a somewhat of a big deal about him switching from Nikon to Canon in the video.

Assuming Canon isn't sponsoring Scott in any way, he seems very excited about the 7d2:

You are right, I did miss that and stand corrected. It makes me wonder now why Kelby did not put up any RAW images with his testing.
