EOS Bodies / Re: 6D or 5D3 (or wait for 7d2?)
« on: December 08, 2012, 04:33:01 AM »
There is a very good chance that the 7DII will be announced in January or February next year.
If you can wait that long, you will be able to make a more informed decision.


That may be true, but as Marsu42 already said, April could be true as well.

Announcement and actual availability to purchase are two different things. It is highly possible that the 7D MKII may be available in September 2013.
All in all speculations.

Look for what specifications in a camera are really important to you and if you need it now, don't wait and miss those great shots you can do now.

I like handholding a lens. I don't mind the 200-400 will take more time to actually hit the market.
I don't look like this guy but I see you need some bodybuilding before you can hold this lens. So time to go to the gym  ;D

Unless distant.star is Dutch. He still may be in "Sinterklaas" mood. In this Dutch holiday they celebrate by giving eachother (especially children) surprise presents accompanied with a verse that is giving clues for guessing what your surprise will be.  ;D

Tamrac velocity 9x EDIT: sorry, that's 8x
Small slingbag holding my 5D MK III with batterygrip attached with 24-105 attached, with 70-200 MK II F/2.8 and 50mm f1.4
Great bag and mobility.

I am using it every week on my 7D for soccer games. It is an excellent lens. When it is more cloudy or mist, the ISO goes up. But you can still get great images even when you crop as long as your image is max 1280 pixels
I use the lens also for my desert trips every year. Weathersealing is excellent as well.

I use the 70-200 f/2.8 MKII on my 5D MKIII but only when the players are close on the field from where I position myself. It does not have enough reach even when you crop. Though the quality is superb

I'd like a 16-135 f/2L with hybrid IS and a some kind of laser assisted USM that can AF in a black hole if needed.

I do see the 7D (and its successor) positioned as a wildlife/Sports camera. Considering this, the 7D is weathersealed. So why should this camera get a 'flipscreen' in the 7D MKII? This feature may be the thing for a 70D that probably will get very good video specs.

Interesting. What is the thing with the white dot? It seems some 1D X cameras have it and some not. Why is it there and what for?

Yep, you are right.
I see this type of "art" in small art-shops where you can buy it as a poster (prox. 30 euro) or printed on canvas (prox. 60 euro)
Regarding the colors....print a color that fits with the seasons popular interior colors and you have a winner to put on the wall. Next season people buy a new one with different color since they come relatively cheap.

One thing missing....what is your expected/suggested price for the 7D MKII?

$1699, same as the 7D at introduction.

 ;D  Good to see optimists here  :D

they will not trump the 5d3 so res is below 22, noise is terrible as usually with crop.

Agree about the resolution. I believe the 7DII will have 20mp.

Not sure about the noise, though.
As previous rumors suggested, the 7DII might indeed use newer sensor tech.
If that's the case, I'm expecting ISO performance on par with the 1DIV.

In general, all those recent 7DII rumors suggest a 1DIV ... at a 7D price.
Hmm, don't know about that.

Since wishlists and speculations are fun, here is what I think we can expect from the 7DII:

  • Sensor: a better 20mp sensor with ISO on par with the 1DIV.
    Positive surprise: ISO is even better.
  • Frame rate: remains the same at 8fps.
    Positive surprise: maybe 8.5fps or 9fps.
  • AF system: same as on the 7D but a tad snappier.
    Positive surprise: more AF points (maybe 27 or 33; certainly not 61).
Overall, the 7DII will be a warmed-over 7D but with a better sensor and other minor improvements.
The 7DII will be like the 1DIV ... but only in image quality.

Other than that, it will remain a 7D: an excellent offering but not a 1D series.

There, you heard it here first  8) .

One thing missing....what is your expected/suggested price for the 7D MKII?

Thanks for this beautiful nature moment of Israel. I am going there every year and while sitting here moving towards winter, your video make me look forward to spring/summer and go back to enjoy the landscape myself. Love it!
