if someone is new to the forum does that give him a privilege to write dumbly formed questions? besides, i wasnt paying attention when he registered. its irrelevant.QuoteSo Is it worthwhile buying the 7D now if I will not be able to afford 7Dmkii?
if you will not be able to afford the 7DII? the prices wont be released before its release, meaning for atleast 6 months. but you want to buy the 7D NOW. or what. do you want to wait for the 7DII's prices and then buy the 7D now?
I think that you should cut the OP a little slack as he is trying to ask a genuine question. His dilemma is not unreasonable, in fact I think that a lot of people will be facing it it the next 6-12 months. I also think that the OP is right in assuming that the 7D MkII will cost significantly more than the current street price of the 7D.
The real question is whether the 7D is worth buying versus a similarly specified (and priced) 70D? This will come down to how good the 70D's sensor is; if it is class leading then I think that the other specifications are close enough that the 7D no longer makes sense for most.
