EOS Bodies / Re: Am I the only one excited about the new 7D mk2?
« on: September 22, 2014, 02:32:41 AM »
Excited? No, but I wasn't hugely disappointed like some others. Pretty much what I expected and it looks like a pretty competent camera as far as I can tell.

I'd love one as a 2nd body for the crap factor when shooting motorsport, but I'd much rather something wider in the lens dept and a couple of primes I have my eye on.

It'll be 70D bits in the current 7D body. 9fps. Bang, MkII and profits

I'm another who gave up waiting and got a 5DIII yesterday. Canon must be laughing their asses off hah. Still, fairly happy with the desicion!

Yeah I don't use the video function on mine. But, as long as they don't compromise stills features in favour of video it doesn't bother me. Show me an improvement in ISO perf, a healthy burst and an upgrade to the focus system and I'll be sold.

None of the above.

Weird, 70D is available here in NZ already for $1600NZ (approx $1270US)

Reserving judgement until we start seeing how the RAW files look off the 70D. The rest sound like solid upgrades, 10fps is heaps and if it gets a derivative ov the 1DX AF I'd be stoked. The only thing that puts me off is the prev rumour of being delayed 'til this time next year. May consider just saving for a 5DIII.

I'd suggest upgrading the 50 1.8 to a 1.4.

The 70-200 f4L IS would be my pick out of the ones you mention if I had the budget for it, perhaps consider a 70-200 2.8L non IS.

360 degree mode dial. That'll please some people  ;)

EOS Bodies / Re: Pick between two options for the Canon 7D II
« on: June 25, 2013, 02:15:48 AM »
I'm another not too fussed with FPS. I'd be happy with 8 like the current 7D has. Give it the 5DIII AF/metering and a 16-whateverMP sensor that gives clean images up to ISO1600, and usable up to 3200. and I'll be sold. I'd rather it didn't have the integrated grip like some of the rumors have mentioned though.

I was in a similar position, had a 600D and bit the bullet and got a 7D about 2 months ago. The only thing I find lacking is as mentioned, the ISO performance above 800. Other than that, its fantastic.

If/When the 7DII is released and it has drastically improved ISO, dual cards and 5DIIIs focus/metering I'l take the hit in depreciation and upgrade.

In your position, I'd hang out for the 70D this month to see how it compares to the current 7D and decide then.

EOS Bodies / Re: What is missing from the 7DII specs
« on: March 30, 2013, 03:53:36 AM »
I'm fairly easy to please. What will make me upgrade my 7D is:

- Clean shots at up to ISO 1600
- Dual slots, both SD would be nice, but both CF is fine. Just not one CF/one SD
- 5D III AF. Although I'm happy with the current 7Ds AF, the thought of having even better perf would be sweeeet
- Same layout/ergo. If they change it too much I'll be unhappy, an integrated grip will be a deal breaker.

Not fussed about GPS/WiFi or a touchscreen or even an fps upgrade.

I think the 60D will be adequate. The 7D will give you a higher hit rate of in focus shots. I say hold on to the 60D for a year, then look at upgrading to a 7DII a few months after if/when it gets released to give it a chance for a price drop. In the meantime start saving for that 70-200 2.8 IS II

I just added a 7D to my collection today. I've been hanging out for the 7DII but have decided I can't justify spending the sort of cash on one when its released that they'll probably be asking. I don't do a lot of indoor shooting so high ISO performance isn't my primary "want" from the camera at the moment. There's no way I could justify a 5DIII either.

Even though it's been around a while, it's still a hell of an upgrade for me. I tend to believe the best way to upgrade is to go up the chain, rather than upgrade from the same line.


Even though I traded my 7D for a 5D3 I would trade the 5D3 for a 7D2.  I'm hoping it's just an APS-C 5D3 that's a stop behind in the signal to noise ratio and dynamic range.

+1   Man I would be in heaven.

Agree'd, I'm upgrading from a 600D and I'm finding it difficult to not just blow it on a 7D instead of waiting for the MkII. While the 7D is still a hell of an upgrade over the 600D, I know I'll be kicking myself when the MkII gets released if I caved...
