Near $3000 for an APS-C haha. People with such nonlogical thinking should get off their unicorns.

will the IQ be much/any better than the 70D
Much? No. Any? Possibly somewhat at higher ISO.

i wonder how much that body will cost in the € zone... 1500 € ?
Hahaha! That's a good one. Usually it's converted $=€, and if its $1800 in the US, its gonna be at least €1800, which is approx. $2330. It always was and it always will be like that.

bring on the "OH NOES, 70D SENSOR!" flamers.

I think it's been proven, that the 70D's AF is an improvement over the 7D's, when it comes to focus lock and focus tracking. So why would 70D be the problem, if 7D isn't?

Sorry for bumping an old thread, but I am kinda interested in 300mm f4 IS USM, while owning a 70-200L f2.8 IS USM Mark II.

Personally, I'd choose the 70-200 II + 1.4xIII for the better IS and AF with similar IQ.
I tried the 1.4xII (yes, version 2) with my 70D and 70-200L f2.8 and while I was satisfied with the IQ, i was not nearly satisfied with the AF. On a super bright sunny day, photographing football, first division. To my knowledge, Mark III extenders don't offer any improvement to AF over Mark II extenders on nonsupertele lenses.

If 300mm f4 has "worse" AF than 70-200L f2.8 with 1.4xII, then the AF of 300mm f4 really has to be sluggish. Are you telling me that from your own experience or you just so happen to read it somewhere?

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.

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

http://www.sandisk.com/about-sandisk/press-room/press-releases/2014/sandisk-announces-world%E2%80%99s-fastest-sd-card/

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.
