yeah I am not at all interested. for what the samyang plastic lens will cost you can find a good FL or FS 55mm f1.2

I find it hard to believe that everyone there is a professional. No hobbyist shooters, schmucks with iPhones, Canon SX50's? Who was the guy that took the shot at the last Olympics of all the photographers pointed toward the sports action? We need a shot from "THAT GUY"!
With all the long lens cameras covering the World Cup, I find it hard to believe there isn't even an incidental shot of the 7D Mk.II - that is if it's even there?
HEY.. its june 12th tomorrow.. first official day of WORLD CUP... do you think we are going to see any pictures or mini reviews/ first impressions this week of the 7d2?
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.
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.
It is a deal breaker, because when I am slogging through the bush with a camera strapped to my back, having a massive body is a decided detriment. Big bodies are for studio use primarily, where size doesn't matter. And if you are in a studio you don't need a crop sensor. If you are out and about, where mobility is important, a large camera body is a problem.
I'm not trying to troll... but have you tried to slog through the bush before with a 1D style body? That extra inch or inch and a half sticking off the camera, in my opinion, don't make a big difference.
Also I don't think an integrated vertical grip is just for studio. It's such a great feature when mounted to a lens with a lens collar that attaches straight to a gimbal or ballhead. It make rotating to portrait very quick and easy to take a photo.
Interestsing article using nomal people speak. Useful, as I'm toying with getting either a 7D or a 70D as my crop camera for a forthcoming safari and the 7D2 won't be out by then.
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.
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
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.
For me button system works fine. I also believe it makes it better weather proofed.
I would be delighted if it were the big body with the assumption that big bodies give the camera all the power and IQ it needs.
...better noise control, maybe more dr?...
Better than in 6D? Wishful thinking I guess
If this is in a 1D body with built in battery grip, I can see a lot of enthusiasts disappointed. When the 80D or 90D comes out, they'll say that is what the 7D2 should have been.
(Another reason why the 1DX overlap is smaller than you think: 1DX users aren't looking for 90-95% as good as something -- they want the best money can buy in that format. That separates the users pretty clearly for me.)
I find the naysayer's comments to be quite entertaining....
I expect it to be to the 70D, like the 7D was to the 60D. Better AF, better sealing, a bit faster, and about twice the price. Anything more will be a bonus.
Since my 60D is getting long in the tooth, for me the time is right for an upgrade.
+1But, I suspect it'll be either another 18-55 type cheap kit lens, or a hyperzoom like the 18-135 or 18-200.
May be an 18-200, but not another 18-55 or 18-135.
They were both released recently in their STM forms within the last 2 years.
