Put another way, if Canon gave the world's 7D1 owners a choice of what do with the 7D2 of:+1
Get one more stop of cleaner high ISO (i.e. a 7D2 shot at 3200 would resemble a 7D1 shot at 1600) and everything else is the same,
Get +2 fps, a bigger buffer, DPAF, and a 1DX-like AF system
I'm guessing those folks would choose the latter. That's why I think the 7D2 is going to be quite successful despite what testers and enthusiasts are heckling the sensor for.
AF performance indeed.
Recently I was invited to a birthday party, that was in fact a surprise wedding party.
Had 60D + Sigma 18-35 1.8 and while I was worried about ISO performance, it was AF in low light that let me down in about 90% of shots When looking at 7D2 specs and tracking, I suspect the score would be other way around.
