Until now they coexisted...]

They still do.  However you now benefit from the mobile Lightroom apps if you subscribe
I don't really, because I don't own any Apples, other than the ones you eat ;).

What I'm not getting from this story is if the 9.99 subscription replaces the standalone version of Lightroom as well? Until now they coexisted...

EOS Bodies / Re: A Few EOS 7D Mark II Specs [CR1]

Personally, I'm kind of excited for it the step up to a pro body...although I am finding all of the "Waaaaaa, it won't look like my pre existing APS-C body!"  comments highly amusing! Particularly the ones that say it will be a deal breaker, no matter how good it is, if it doesn't have the body format they expect and want.   8)

I think Canon wants to differentiate this from the existing APS-C bodies in a variety of ways, given that it is going to be more expensive in than any other APS-C body ever.  I suspect it will be a different kind of animal than we've ever seen from any APS-C camera, in terms of AF, Speed and buffer (although I suspect it will only be a moderate improvement in IQ over the 70D, but time will tell).  I think Canon is seeing if they can redefine what an APS-C camera CAN be--and I'm very excited to see how that pans out!

That's my thoughts anyway.  :D
This might surprise you, but things like camerasize and ergonomics are part of what makes a camera good, for a lot of people. Image quality and fancy features are just part of the experience.

I love the buttons instead of Mode Dial, that means I can simply remove all the Modes I don't use , I have only Av and M selected, and it also mean you can add just a C# for for example video or bracketing etc.Also, I have knocked the mode dial clean off a 5dc one, with buttons nothing is left to chance.

If you need another mode very quickly, simply assign a button to a that mode.
See, I did not know you could do that, that makes a lot more sense now, thx.

Can somebody explain to me HOW lack of a mode dial is a good thing? I've never really understood the button system on the 1D line. To me it seems to be a lot slower to switch modes like this.

Its a way to improve moisture resistance, and much faster to use, at least it was on my 1 series cameras.  Having to hold down a button while you rotate a dial is cumbersome, you have to look at it to set it in the right position, and the plate on the dial is not reliable either.
 
A Pop up flash seems to retain a moisture leak issue, so that is strange.
This type of arrangement is obviously not for those that want all the built-in modes of a digital rebel, its not aimed at Rebel Users.
You really don't have to look at it to use it, that's one of the nice things. It clicks, so you can just count / feel the amount of clicks to know which mode you're in.

Both options are workable, I'd just prefer the mode dial.

Us pros typically shoot in one of three modes.  Manual, TV, or AV.  We don't change these often, and many of us, me included, never change our mode.  I always use manual.  No point having a giant dial on the camera when most of your users will barely ever, or ever, use it.  Much easier to implement a button system at that point.  It's all about the economics of scale.
I'd agree with you, if it weren't for the gigantic extra grip under the camera. The tiny mode dial is the least of your worries :P. That the buttons are easier to weatherseal, that makes sense, maybe.

That's the point. You don't want the mode changing accidentally and more to the point, the mode doesn't change that often - less often than you change lens/camera.
That's why all the newer ones have the mode dial lock? ???

Hope it's not a big body like 1DX, but will stay similar sized to 7D or 5D cameras. It would be a little strange to me to change the body size. Target audience will be a little bit different then, maybe. I wouldn't buy it, if this would happen, anyway :P

I want something bigger then 70D (I don't like the controls on that one, I want the joystick and the thumbwheel), but smaller than a pro body. Well, the size can be like the 70D, as long as it will have the 7D controls. If they move to pro body size, I hope the 80D will get the better 7D controls.

Seems I will be keeping the 7D a lot longer, if this turns out to be true. Or I might even switch to a 5D3 later on.

SOME EF-S lenses can be used on FF bodies, such as the Sigma 10-20 on a 5D2. It's not an impossible thing, but I doubt Canon is ready for FF compact cameras yet.
As far as I know, Sigma doesn't make EF-S lenses, only canon does. Sure, you'd have problem with heavy vignetting etc on 3rd party lenses made specifically for crop lenses, but they can all be physically used on full frame cameras.

Do you guys know if there are any reviews out there yet? Seems the lens is shipping already, but for the life of me, I can't find ANY info on it, other than the sigma announcement / website.

EOS Bodies / Re: 7D firmware update - wow, could it be?

No doubt, it isn't as simple as my previous post. But particularly unnuanced and poorly argumented remarks like "we don't need stupid upgrades, we need new bodies!", just call for unnuanced replies ;). He didn't give one clue as to why "we" should need new bodies.

I know countless people who are a little bit addicted to gear, and spend not nearly enough time improving their skills. No matter what gear you have, it's still you that has to take the pictures. Newer / better gear can make things easier, of course.

I myself upgraded from a 450D to a 7D because of the ergonomics and things like the jog dial and wheel to make things a little easier. Does the 7D make me take instantly better pictures? Not that much. I've a long way to go until I reach the limits of my gear. Will I upgrade to another camera before that happens? Probably. Do I need to? Probably not.  ;)

I would be WOWing if they actually released a real 7D MKII instead of stupid upgrades! We need better bodies!
We need better photographers!

What is wrong with the 7D? And what is so stupid about upgraded firmware? I, and I think countless others with me, would very much welcome some new features. Could give the 7D some extended life for some users.

Always have the strange feeling that the people who are whining about wanting new camera bodies spend more time complaining than they are actually in the field taking photographs...

I would love to have that 70-300mm lens - especially after seeing the Kenya safari photos posted on Canon Rumors.  But after looking over some of the awesome entries, I think my chances of winning the lottery are better than my chances of winning a prize here.  However, it has been great fun.  Good luck to all who participated!
What he/she said. Awesome pictures everywhere. Congrats to whomever wins!
