What is the basic differences between the 7D Mark II and the EOS 7D? You don't need to go in to a lot of detail just what a person just starting out. I take pictures of Birds and Wildlife.

What's the best deals you have seen on these two cameras?

The Mark II is the successor to the original 7D. The primary updates are a faster burst rate(10 vs. 8 FPS), an updated auto focus system more similar to the system from the 5DIII and 1DX, updated weather sealing which was already very good on the original 7D, GPS, and an SD card slot, and slightly better high ISO image quality. Either camera will be great for wildlife and birds, if money is no object then grab a 7DII but if you want to save some green scoop up an original 7D they can be had for $600 - $800 nowadays.

In one line the 7D2 is better in very way then the 7D, some things a small bump and some a huge jump. Yes I used the 7D for 4 years. The 70D is a much better general purpose body then then 7D, with 2 less focus modes, smaller buffer and 1fps slower.

CPW assisted me with my 1DX Acquisition.
Perfect transaction and I will use CPW again.

$1,599.00 with free next day air shipping from Adorama on Nov. 20th. It was an unadvertised special.

I just went to Adorama and looked at their 7DII prices. Basically a body only is $1799. Just like everywhere else. They do have a $1699 "Special Promotional Bundle" but they arrive at that final price by figuring in a $350 Canon rebate that is only good on the 7DII if you also buy a PIXMA PRO printer and specific Photo Paper packages.

I find DPR's side by side comparison tool to be a useful way to get a rundown of the basic differences between multiple bodies:

SD slot and GPS and weather sealing.

And a sensor with extremely low thermal noise and no perceptible banding. Roger Clark says the sensor is superior to the 6D for astrophotography:

You skipped the much more advanced focusing system.
