EOS Bodies / Re: Are you planning to purchase a 7D2
« on: August 27, 2014, 02:00:27 PM »
i'm really happy with my 70D, however i am planning on buying the 7D2 eventually, if it handles noise in High ISO from 2/3 - 1 stop better over the 70D. i shoot sports indoors from October-April, but also football all year around, so i also need reach and FF is not an option.

i'm pretty confident the 7D successor will deliver in AF and sport department, i just really hope it will also deliver some improvements in ISO department. Digic6 should bring something to the table, hoping for 2/3 - 1 stop ISO improvement over 70D.

The Nikon D7100 or Pentax K-3 wouldn't even come close!
Nikon D7100 isnt meant to compete against 7DII. It is meant to be compared against 70D. According to the rumours, Nikon has a 7DII competitor called D9300.

still a rumor, people. don't take it as if Canon itself listed these specs.
so many people spewing their venom over something that is:

1 - NOT official announced
2 - a RUMOUR (this one is important)
3 - NOT tested and reviewed

people always commented "i want less MP for better ISO capabitilies" and blahblah, now that this rumor surprised everyone with "only" 20MP and not 24MP, it's not good. again.

the fact of the matter is, that newer CPU's always make some leap forward in regard of noise in High ISO shots. Digic6 should be no exception. what this rumour also reports, is:

- 10 FPS (same as 1D4)
- 65 AF point (BETTER than 1D4)
- Dual Digic6 (BETTER than 1D4)
- more MP (BETTER than 1D4)

but who cares about that. all you people see is that it supposedly has 20MP.

however, i would never pay more than $2000 for this.

if 95MB/s is more than enough for 7FPS 60+ photos, then 280MB/s is more than enough for 12fps.

and I actually hope 7D successor will have 1xCF 1xSD. i just love the no need for external adapters. i just flick the SD into my MBPr and be done with it.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Switch from Ds3 to 7d Mk2

What would be the results if I were to use that lens on a new 7D Mk2?
I don't know, how many MP does 7DII have again? I forgot, since it's been out for so long.

haven't read the whole topic, just few first pages, but are you people really believing this rumour? its a rumour, yet you are treating it as a fact.

EOS Bodies / Re: 7D Mark-II as an action oriented DSLR

If I recall correctly, the Digic 6 processors were designed for point&shoot cameras to allow for better noise reduction for jpg processing.
Yes and no. 7D has Dual Digic 4 (not +) also. Dual Digic 6 are possible? But who would know.

the only thing I would bet on is a new more MP sensor and 10FPS. with that, they could use slightly higher than 7FPS burst rate and same sensor in forthcoming 80D, which is probably due in 2016, and still wouldn't endanger the 7D2.

Lenses / Re: World Cup started - no sign of 100-400L Mk2

how the HELL would YOU even NOTICE a freaking specific lens from 400 photographers stacked up around the field on a TV? do you have a special program on your TV where a camera swoops across every photographer there and showing their gear?

stop whining about I HAVENT SEEN a 7D2 or insert random lens here.

for f*** sake people.

Lenses / Re: Canon 10-22 vs 10-18

there might never be another EF-S lens released with USM and full time manual focusing again now that they've gotten stepper motors cheap enough to stuff into these things. Think on that for a minute. The pretty darn good (but $$$) 17-55mm 2.8, the solid 15-85mm and the cool 10-22mm could all lose their excellent USM when they get refreshed, regardless of better optics.
i'm pretty sure the most expensive EF-S lenses will retain USM motors.

So I'm using a Canon 500D with it's 9 point AF system and what I'm wondering is, just what does the theorized ....  7D2 ...... mean for my photography?
one with the "7D2" (which we dont know jack sh*t about it yet, like FPS etc) will have not only twice, but up to 3x more photos and probably caught a better moment, with a lot more probability that they will tack sharp and more of them in focus, with (slighty) better IQ in all regards. and probably get the job done and get paid.

it will also cause jizz in your pants when hearing machine gun sound like shutter.
