I can't say I'm surprised at all.  Canon has done this before by building something up that turned out to be nothing really. 

Anyways, while not surprised, I'm still disappointed.  I keep hoping they will finally take their top part out of the back of their middle part but it looks like it will be a while longer.

Wow!!!! I'm using a small, uncalibrated monitor at work, yet I can see a difference (small) even compared to the 70D at high ISO. Is it just me or do you also notice an improvement?

I can definitely see an improvement over the original 7D, but I really can't see any improvement over the 70D.

EDIT: Well, I double checked the ISO 25600 and in some parts of the sample I can see the 7D II being better (say the bottle of wine vinegar), in some areas it is the same (say the bottle of pepper oil), and in some areas, the 70D giving a nicer look (shadow noise between the pepper oil and the colouring box).  I think I need to see how the samples will look like on dpreview to get a better idea.

I wish it was a out right rebate instead of a mail-in-rebate :'( ... jealous of you Americans.

Yeah... if it were instant, like they have been before, I'd have ordered and shipped to Canada.

Too bad about the mail in rebates.  Makes it harder to order from Canada  :(

Hope Canon's next round of rebates are the instant type again.

Hmm... I prefer the Canon one over the Magic Lantern one.

I personally hope they wait to release it until after the D400 (or what ever it will be called) comes out so Canon can beat it on pretty much every level like the 7D did the D300s. 

I mean the 7D had been THE BEST cropped sensor camera for a long while and I really hope they make the MK II the best as well.

Now that I have a 5D MK III I don't know if I will get one as I still have my 7D as a backup, but you never know...

Comparing the 7100 specs against the rumoured specs of the 7DMKII, Nikon will have to release something a little bit higher because as it stands, the 7DMKII will beat it on all specs.

Since the price difference is estimated to be $1,000, and looking at the specs, the 7100 has got to be just competition for the 70D.

But since Nikon showed their cards first, I bet they wont show the D400 until after the 7DMKII is out so they can try and trump Canon.

I've had to deal with this so this is good news!

I just bought a 5D MKIII w 24-105 lit from B&H for $3750.  I was thinking before that maybe I should have waited.  I'm glad I didn't.

I just ordered the 5DMKIII w 24-105 kit from the States.  After taxes and shipping, I'm saving $750 over buying it in Canada so in this instance, it was worth it.  Generally I find I save more money buying from B&H at least half the time but we do get some really great sales in Canada which makes it more advantageous to buy locally.  It pays to do a little research (photoprice, redflagdeals) before buying big ticket items and even small items for that matter... I can't buy anything without researching it to death and while it may be overkill, once I do decide to buy I rarely regret it afterwards.

This has also been discussed on fredmiranda forums as well and B&H has posted to contact them directly for help:

EOS Bodies / Re: Should I get 7D now or wait for MKII?

I'm happy with my 7D.  I had bought the 5DMKII and returned it (wasn't for me).  I still plan on upgrading to full frame eventually, but in the interim my kit keeps me going.

For traveling, I get by with the 7D, 24-105 and the 10-22.  I can fit them all in a relatively small bag.  The 24-105 is used most often (say 80%) and the 10-22 the rest of the time.

I have a 70-200 2.8 (non IS) for the telephoto stuff.  I don't do too much of that since the lens is really big and heavy and I don't much care for lugging it around with everything else when you are out on your feet for 8-10 hours. 

I have a 50 1.4 (never use it but it is a staple) and just bought the 40mm which I still haven't tried yet.

The one nice advantage though of say, getting a 5DMKII is getting it with the 24-105 and, at least for me, that would do me for 90% of the type of shots I would take and would save having to carry around an additional lens.
