I had a top wheel on this camera and a back wheel on my original 7DII. If I had all the warranty money I’ve spent in the past I could buy a 1DxII right now. Lol
There is no winning Mike.
Imagine a camera really made for wildlife built tough and water tight. It would never be black... I mean even my underwear is camo lol. It needs the extra pixels so we can crop the hell out of the images because their not going to give us the 300-600mm anytime soon. It needs to Af like the 1DxII because Sony will very soon. It needs to use two card that are the same SD cards of the future and stop worrying about yesterday.
Just my two cents of course.
Jeff, I think you honestly hit the nail on the head with your above comments. I agree with you completely. I anxiously await the announcement of 7D III. I know it won't have everything we want, but I hope it's auto-focus is improved (like the 1DX II), less noise at higher ISO's, and built to last (like a brick outhouse). Many of the features in that camera are already good, and I want to keep them.
I would really love to see Canon come out with a mirror-less camera like Sony's a9 (it's gotta be able to use the Canon lenses). Then I'd be able to keep all my Canon stuff, and just buy one camera. I don't see that happening any time soon.
