Well, youre right but full frame stabilisation and small flange distance seems interestin:5 axis full frame stabilization?game changing, game changing, game changing, blah blah..5 axis stabilization is old news.... just ask anyone with an Olympus OMD camera... it's been out for about 3 years, and they had 3 axis internal stabilizers 12 years ago....
But show photos from 7d1 and 7d2 to people, and they' won't recognize what camera is where.
What is really game changing, sony A7 or a7s. Or new 5-axis sensor stabilization in A7 II. Btw it cost as much as 7d2.
I think marketing departments are "full of it"
A 14 percent improvement in efficiency is evolutionary, not revolutionary.....
5 axis stabilization on crop to 5 axis stabilization of FF is evolutionary, not revolutionary....
increasing the number of focus points..... same thing.
Realistically, the last three revolutionary things to hit cameras were the digital sensor, live view displays, and DPAF. Despite the hype (and everyone is guilty), pretty much everything else has been evolutionary.
Does any system offer stabilized 35/1.4 on full frame? Stabilized 24/1.4? Nope. Stabilized ... Well you got the point. Fast primes on fullframe with ibis looks so much fun to me. With a7r ii in future or a7s ii youll get what you want: more resolution or better iso. Your choice.
14% improvement? Well 6d ia still better
More focus points? 1dx is till better.
The better solutions existed before. Cannot call it game changer
I understand that for some people this ia what they were waiting for. But for most of the people 7d2 is an overkill. 6d looks like wiser option. Or a7, if you can live with slower af.
