Put another way, if Canon gave the world's 7D1 owners a choice of what do with the 7D2 of:

Get one more stop of cleaner high ISO (i.e. a 7D2 shot at 3200 would resemble a 7D1 shot at 1600) and everything else is the same,

OR

Get +2 fps, a bigger buffer, DPAF, and a 1DX-like AF system

I'm guessing those folks would choose the latter.  That's why I think the 7D2 is going to be quite successful despite what testers and enthusiasts are heckling the sensor for.

- A
+1
AF performance indeed.
Recently I was invited to a birthday party, that was in fact a surprise wedding party.
Had 60D + Sigma 18-35 1.8 and while I was worried about ISO performance, it was AF in low light that let me down in about 90% of shots :) When looking at 7D2 specs and tracking, I suspect the score would be other way around. :)

Site Information / Re: Advertising choice brilliant

How is the choice to decide which ad to display made?

Dynamically based on your own internet search history.  Given your posting history, I have no doubt the ads are appropriate.  ::)

And you know this because...?
Because cookies, tags, analytics, ect.
Ads do not target sites, but users - that's what makes them "brilliant".
They don't say about site, but about you. Busted. ;)

I'll have one in my hands tomorrow at the PhotoPlus Expo in NYC at the Canon Exhibit, it may not be mine but just to hold one which I'm sure will not be much different than my 7D but I can run it thru it's paces with an expert from Canon to show me the in's and out's of it. Almost like getting a crash course on it before getting my own. Enjoy your cameras guys.

I messed around with one at the expo for about twenty minutes, I like it but now I'm undecided after also playing with the Canon 5D Mark III. I'm getting ready to transition to karate/taekwondo tournaments indoors and the Canon rep said the 5D Mark III would be a better fit. :-\
I'm going back tomorrow..........
I think he was right. With 5D3 you can generally have faster shutter speeds with same IQ. That's a priority when dealing with fast movement action like that. Maybe someone else can advise on what shutter speeds you need for freezing action in this situation.
7D2 will be just as good or better only if lighting will be strong enough.

For being "lighter" on landscapes you might consider recent EF-S 10-18 IS STM instead of EF-S 10-22 USM.
Newer, cheaper, sharper, stabilised and... slower and "just a plastic mount". But I guess for landscapes f4.5-5.6 is ok. :)

If you get any urge to get wide prime (like Canon 35mm you mentioned) - reconsider.
For crop sensor I suggest Sigma A 18-35/f1.8 instead - sensational zoom that gives crops new meaning.
Also a great portrait and evening/nightime lens.

Sony opposed to market protection?  ::) ::) ::) ::) ::)

You use Vista 64?! Is that possible and not go mental? :)
If you worry about win 8.1, why not 7 64-bit?

I'm DSLR-ing with my DSLR whenever I need to ;)

Isn't the usb dock a thing for correcting autofocus? I bought one for 18-35 just in case if I get twitchy about AF. ;)
Nobody promises that every person who returned lens was a perfect thinker or an expert. And this is an opportunity for others.

Apple approach is kinda "Off-roads are not adapted to our off-road wehicle" all over again.

If I get this corrrectly, the image projected onto sensor is reversed true image.
Then potential "light source" would come from upper left side (when looking at camera from back).

Kinda looks like light spot from single directional source at narrow angle.
If you have IR/UV filter removed, then it could be IR radiation from some component inside the camera, something that belongs to screen circuitry. Sometimes voltage stabilisers or voltage reference are made with LED sources.

If it's 600D, then I find it unlikely to be screen itself - screen is articulated and separated.

*I guess there is no IR detector below VF*

Noise performance is noticeably better than 7D.
Maybe I'm wrong but 60D/7D noise @ ISO 3200 is similar to 7D2 noise @ ISO 12800
Canon sample pictures, eh? 3200ISO on 70D (portrait sax guy) was clean as a whistle, real world images are far from the truth. That squirrel at 3200ISO look pretty good, but 1- its daylight and 2- Canon sample pictures.

Still, you are saying 7D2 has 2 stop ISO advantage over the 60D. that's ludicrous.
3x NO
I checked samples from other sources. I'm not sure if they want to be mentioned here.
As I said "noise will tell", and now it does... at least for me :)
