I'm pretty sure I paid about $1000 for my first digital camera. A whopping 2mp (CCD) Kodac DC280. Took some pretty good pictures with it too, as long as my subject was no faster than a limping snail.

You think it might just be an economies of scale issue. Maybe the 7DII will have a sensor built on a new smaller say 50nm production line and to get the most out of the new line Canon needs to produce all it's new sensors on that line and retire the old 500nm line(s). This would make economic sense no? The "new revolutionary" sensor in the 7DII I think will point out where ALL EOS cameras are going.
Canon used the 7D as a development mule for camera ergonomics and User Interface updates, which is why the camera's handling is still so fresh. Nearly all of it's design changes went into the 5DIII and 1DX. So much so many people called the 5DIII a full frame 7D than a 5DII replacement (which is what the 6D eventually became). The AF redesign paved the way for the 61 point array and control and apart from the sensor, there is still a lot to like about the 7D. So it makes sense for Canon to use the 7DII as a development tool to updaqte the sensor technology and design. As long as the 7DII breaks even in the market place then the develeopment and lessons learnt from this model are effectively free to Canon, who can then incorporate it's features into the next gen of camera models...ie 5D4, 6DII, 1DXII ect. If the sensor is fantastic, then it's hype will generate a natural desire for full frame variants...and the next gen camera models will pretty much sell themselves with little marketing. In my view, that's the wise application of innovation which leads to market dominance.
If I rememebr the 40D introduced Live view to Canon, which was later incorporated into the 1DsIII and 5DII models. For landscape work, it was a game changer...somehitng which Nikon have never fully engaged with.
I spoke to someone who said that their brother's mother's cousin's ex-boyfriend's lover said that it would come in pink.
Pink? What's the point of that? At least white would lean towards arctic camouflage
Pink would provide camouflage among the herd of unicorns where the 7DII is found.
Probably left out a comma. I don't shoot birds or sports or idiots either.Still no clean HDMI. That's it!! I am selling this overpriced camera! Nikon D4s next! ARROGANT Canon!
And please consider this Canon: Not all who own the 1DX are sports idiots or ornithologists, some just want the best possible low light performance for their creative work!
I work and shoot in the dark (video and stills). And the 1DX has one stop ISO advantage over the 5D Mark III, and has way less color banding when lifting shadows than the 5D Mark III. But after Canon gave the 5D Mark III clean HDMI the advantage is less than before on video.It is certainly possible to give the 1DX clean HDMI, since the 1DC hast it. But Canon finds it more convenient to force me into selling my house to buy the 1DC, than to give the 1DX the same features as the Nikon D4 !!!
Why did you put "idiots" behind sports?
Why is it that someone is a troll the minute that one person does not have the same thought as the next. I think you're a troll cause you don't agree with me (yeah.... it sounds as stupid as it sounds to me too).
So lightroom has the ability to correct your mistakes, but don't you want to correct your mistake before making the mistake?
Now, we all make mistakes.... but, rhetorically... How about setting the white balance and even if it is good for one shot, but not good for another shot, then using lightroom? Come on... go outside your comfort zone.
