Yup. I'll take GPS over WiFi. And yes, I know it wouldn't be difficult to have both, but that adds more complexity and weight even if I leave it turned off all the time.


what weight? ever seen mini-pcie wifi cards? they can stick wifi chips into sd cards today, and antennas could be build around the frame of body, you wouldn't even notice that its there.

if someone would handle you a laptop with wifi and one without, just by holding it wouldn't be able to tell which one has it and which one doesn't

but its a Canon, it it it has to be the best ;)

Maybe I'm reading that chart wrong but if you look at the guys black shirt the upper right appears to be quite a bit worse. Isn't that one the a600?

I thought the new battery was also higher capacity. Am I wrong?
Can I buy a couple for my 7D?

The Park Cameras video review says that the new batteries (and the old batteries) will work in 7D MkII and all the others that use the old battery.

Has anybody heard of the release date yet? An actual date?

B&H only mentions November.

Seriously, I wish Canon would have announced a new 100-400L II alongside the 7D II. Would have made a good day even better. :)

FIFY - Would have made an less expensive day more expensive.

A lot of ways to interpret this. It appears to me that the redesign of the microlens was the major focus, although what that means in terms of other necessary changes to the sensor is unknown. I certainly will withhold judgment until there are actual tests of the camera. Canon is explicitly claiming improved low-light/high ISO performance, and Kelby claims that it is the best crop camera in that regard that he has seen. Some whine that the "crop" modifier suggests that this means little. To someone who is going to use a crop camera in any case, I look forward to the possibility that this body is better than any other in its class.

The issue with a microlens redesign, IMO, is that we have seen this in the past. I think it was the 50D, in which case, the jump from 10mpx to 15mpx produced about the same amount of noise as the 40D, so the microlenses redesign helped a little to mitigate the resolution jump.

It will be interesting to see how much really is pulled out of the 70D sensor with a microlens redesign. I don't expect that to be really all that large of a hardware improvement, but time will tell. Perhaps good for 1/3 to 1/2 stop over the 70D, but still doesn't do anything for DR/shadow noise, really, as the noise floor is still going to problematic for underexposed or pushed sections of photos.

Can't wait to see this in the hands of those that really know how to do comparisons! :) I won't be able to be a first round adopter like I was with the 7D, there are much larger items vying their way for my bank account this season.

I agree, we have to see some independant testing and reviews and Scott is no longer in that category as he is a paid Canon fanboy. But this release just so smells like the iPhone6 release. "Look Apple fans, we now give you what everyone else has had for 3 years" sort of thing.

The 7D II looks impressive. I wish the kit lens was a 100-400L II though. ;)

Seriously, I wish Canon would have announced a new 100-400L II alongside the 7D II. Would have made a good day even better. :)

And put a sony sensor in there ;)

New focus system might have helped to get this pic right? Not sure why they did -1EV compensation. There are couple of nice pics from EF-S 10-18mm lens.

I'd love to see your example of a similar shot taken with a phone.
