Compare Canon 7D Mark II with Nikon D750 makes sense in the same way that a comparison of these cars...I would say it's not fair to compare the 7D2 to those other two. I think Canon is marketing the 7D2 in the 6D level, except for the APS-C factor. It's therefore natural that it would beat these two. I'd like to see a direct comparison between the 7D2 and the D750, for example, to see how each handles low light/shadow recovery, even if sensor sizes and crop factors are different.
I think a sedan with a large interior space is more suitable for family outings, instead of a sporty two-door. Maybe someone prefers to take his family squeezed into a Camaro
There's a lot to like about the D750. For me, the kickers are the price, WIFI, and tilt screen. Some people consider WIFI and a tilt screen to be "consumer grade" items, but there are many times I'm on assignment that both would come in handy. The extra DR is merely an added bonus.
As a Canon shooter, I'm glad that the D750 and D810 have been released in between product cycles of the 5D line. Competition is a beautiful thing.
I recently read a letter to the editor of a Paris-published photo-magazine. The writer related that his Canon 20D had recently died and that he missed it terribly. It made great images for him for all those years.
Then there's the story about a motorcycle race photographer who used an old 1Ds 4mpixel and could print _incredible_ B+ size images. Here's a link to his story -

Both these stories reminded me it's not about how much DR or how many pixels something might have. It's how you use whatever you have that counts... and to think that Canon has for many years enabled this kind of creativity... it's amazing...
My dilemma is, the 24mm is only slightly wider than my excellent 35
Eh ? Are you on crop ?
24 is a lot wider than 35.
