I challenge any one to make a fair, fairer chart than what I made that has common sense incorporated in first place, then personal like or dislike.
BTW I am not representative of any company so can claim to have included what is the essence and necessities rather that nonsense data. Again if you can make a better chart, that can truly yield a different result, I am interested to look at otherwise passing baseless, light comments is not hard by any means.
The Rebel is certainly a lot of camera for the money but your chart is not based on common sense but rather YOUR personal like or dislike. I will not try to guess your intent, but I can say that your chart DOES NOT include the 7DII's:
- Two card slots that allow real time back-ups of digital files or extended card capacity or any number of other very practical uses.
- Highly configurable AF cases to fine tune AF for specific uses.
- 3 customizable shooting modes.
- Many user configurable buttons that allow changing the camera's controls to suit personal needs.
- Allowing different AF set-up in vertical and horizontal modes making switching between AF arrays very easy.
Your list does include 3 entries about the flippy screen which means very little to me (although I have been assured it is well constructed and might find it useful if I had it), and seems to emphasize video/LV uses. I primarily use the VF, reserving LV for some static subjects and use video as an adjunct to my still work. If I wanted a video camera, I would buy one.
So some of what you view as "common sense" I view nice to have but not critical. Not everyone's work or working methods are the same - which is why Canon makes different models and why the ideal choice for you is not ideal for me and may not be for the OP - who, by the way, did not include the Rebel in his choices.
One size just does not fit all.
