You have landscapers moaning about only 20Mpix and the usual DR nonsense.Bingo. From a marketing standpoint, you just accurately summed up the 7D Mk II reception and criticisms into three camps! Makes me wish commenter critique could stratified by subject matter (sports, cinematography, landscapes). Dare I say there would be a more academic-like and jovial discussion to be had?
Then you have videographers banging on about the lack of 4K.
Meanwhile sports / wildlife photographers are quietly pre-ordering. If I was a sports photographer I'd be pretty excited to have the 7D II either as a back up or main camera.
As a sports and wildlife hobbyist with a 60D - I'm very excited to get a 7D mark II. The enhanced autofocus, upgraded fps, and noise reduction at higher ISOs will boost my keeper % and maximize the action with me following through the viewfinder. If I was interested in more weddings or landscapes, I would have simply upgraded to a 5D mk III or 6D (for backpacking and traveling).
