Now, these days I'm looking to pair it with a cropped body so I'm killing myself over here waiting for the 7D2.Don't keep holding your breath for the 7DII...besides it may not have voice annotation.
I am trying to get my photography business running but I am encountering a problem I am sure we all have:Apparently the same scenario played out in the early 1980's when reasonably high quality film SLR cameras flooded onto the market. To paraphrase, it seemed like anyone with an SLR who knew how to press the shutter could call themselves a professional photographer...Yeah right.
"Everyone's a photographer!"
Seems these days if you buy yourself a cheap DSLR and know how to press the shutter you can call your self a professional photographer.

The Cheetah 360/Godox 360 is an awesome bit of kit, which does ship with the PB-960 battery. But references to cable compatibility with Quantum didn't jump out at me.
Using my 300 4 L IS with either a crop body or 6d I get blur. I correct this by leaning my left shoulder against something. Do not have same issue with the 70 200 L. I do not want to always use a monopod as it is often getting in the way.John the biggest cause of image blur when using longer lenses is camera shake. Go back and check the exif/metadata in the shots where you missed focus and check the shutter speed. Long lenses need a very steady hand, and preferably a monopod. Also, accurate positioning of focus points can be critical. The 300 f/4is is a very sharp lens, even wide open. Get your shutter speeds up!
Touchscreens? I wouldn't want to swap the major controls on my 1-Series or 5D3 bodies for touchscreens...too slow...but the touchscreen is here to stay. I got a little SL-1 as a lightweight travel camera and was frankly surprised how well sorted its touchscreen is. The SL-1 is much slower than the premium bodies to make adjustments to all sorts of settings, but some of the functions are just plain excellent. Bring them on!Yes.... the touch screen is a game changer... either use it like a 1DX or tap the screen.... as touchscreens mature it will be interesting to see what happens.I think touch screens will have a lofty place among entry level cameras and mirrorless cameras. When it comes to professional grade cameras...I don't really think that touch screens are going to be all that important. They introduce a highly disruptive workflow for changing camera settings, one that is not conducive to action shooting at all (and, since this is the 7D II were talking about...action is basically what it's designed for.)
It's not without sound reason and frankly awesome industrial design that mode-dial-free 1-Series bodies get constant accolades for close on perfectly resolved ergonomics.Can somebody explain to me HOW lack of a mode dial is a good thing? I've never really understood the button system on the 1D line. To me it seems to be a lot slower to switch modes like this.That's the point. You don't want the mode changing accidentally and more to the point, the mode doesn't change that often - less often than you change lens/camera.
I've been debating on this for a couple months now since I don't really use them for more than taking pictures of my kids and some occasional outings with our friends. My only requirement is that the camera shoots in RAW as I love to edit photos and touch them up in Lightroom.Do yourself a favor and at least LOOK at the astonishing little SL-1. I see this camera as possibly the most interesting release from Canon in the past 12 months. It's light and tiny. It won't deliver files like your 5D3, but it's got a perfectly fine APS-C sensor.
