+1000My thoughts as well so add my +1 to that pile lol
If the 7DII sensor is a tweaked/re-purposed 70D sensor, I'd be very disappointed.
There's no point in a 7DII, IMO, if image quality is only marginally improved vs the 7D - and that's exactly the case with the 70D sensor.
Is this really the best that Canon will have in the next 3-5 years for APS-C image quality ??
Well, I have a 70D already, so I guess I'm all set then.
I do like the IQ improvements from the 60D/7D to the EOS-M/70D age (yep used them all), but they were only really minor sharpness tweaks probably due to them doing a bit better on the AA filter front. I really do like my 70D but I'm not blind that it lacks on the DR front vs the competition (luckily I can make do). Like many others I was waiting for this to their comeback to at least match them in the sensor game, but if that "20.2MP" indicates what we're thinking ... then heck I'd rather keep my 70D with the flippy screen (great for low angle) and WiFi.
Then again I'm obviously a stupid n00b shooter because I prefer a feature not put onto "Pro" bodies
Who knows, maybe they have improved things like the read noise significantly again to give a similar result to higher DR (a bit like how neater ISO grain not necessarily less still makes it a little more usable)
