Lenses / Re: How much will EF 600mm f/4 IS ii hold it's value?

typically 70-90% of the current purchase price of new unit, I think. but it also depends on the condition of your lens and any warranty left over.

super telephoto lens can be harder to sell due to smaller pool of users. may takes weeks or months to find a buyer who will not depress your asking price.

well, if its main competitor/s can continue to provide a good crop sensor with market demand and profitability, likely canon will follow suit.

Low noise at high iso is not a question for nikon, canon had allways some problems wit that.

low noise at high iso has been an issue with nikon many years back (early 2000s) and nikon users at that time wish they can look into cmos (which canon employed) for improvement. it was only recent years (after 2006, i think) that nikon sensor started to improve and eventually overtake (or levelled with) canon in this aspect.

If there is an expected price hike, then the optimist in me says this is good news. Why? The 7DII may well shift up a whole level and become the 1D4 replacement in terms of FPS, AF performance, iso performance, buffer depth etc.

While I wouldn't hold my breath for 1-Series level ergonomics, durability and weather sealing, I would expect a camera that will go a long way towards satisfying the day to day high performance needs of photographers who currently depend on 1D4 APS-H bodies. A high performance APS-C 7DII has the potential to save me the cost of a 1DX and a 400 f/2.8isII. Why? Because on APS-C vs FF my 300 f/2.8is will deliver the reach I need for my current clients needs, currently met with 1D4 bodies.

Still, no matter how strong the 7DII feature set ends up revealing itself as, one can't deny that the 1DX and 400 f/2.8isII combo will remain the gold standard for sports/action work.


while i certainly welcome 7d2 with or exceeding 1d4 in feature & performance, the pricing must be competitive, we must not allow them to chop us like carrot effortlessly ;D high iso remains an issue for crop sensor if it can exceed d7000 performance that will draw alot of interest

I was told that there will be an superior AF system inside. Like the porfessional cameras use. And with an very fast picture tranfer rate. And that has it´s price.

The Canon product expert was very self confident that Canon will stay the best Camaera producer in the world. He said, that millions of sold cameras show that they meet the needs of the customers. And if I am dissatisfied, I can make a switch to another firm. That would no matter....

well said, canon product expert? ::)  i remembered many years back nikon told their users, nikon gave enough pixel for their work & hobby so dont ask for more despite there was a wide spread discontent among the users on mp & poorer iso their ccd gave compares to canon cmos. fast forward to now, nikon has the highest mp dslr, switch to cmos & the old management which said they gave enough, gave way to new.
