One possible solution for not having to take off the backpack to get to your camera is a clip like Peak Design's Capture Pro (https://peakdesignltd.com/store/?c=clips). Works great if the weather is good

They're about to obsolete all the head phones all their customers currently own and use, and the likely path to "continue using what you have" is bulky, cumbersome and expensive.
I would like to ask what do you think about brightness of this image. Do you see it as too dark/too bright or OK? Especially in the rocks. I'm asking this because if I look it on my display (MBP retina) it looks OK, but if I look it on my older (cheap) display it looks brighter (actually too bright).
I'm a fan of DPP (and Digital Lens Optimizer), and this new version looks very good so far. I do hope DPP's slowness in converting RAW to JPEG has become faster as well as how slow it is to "transfer to photoshop" to use some specific Photoshop function/plug-in while in DPP
(Veering a bit off-topic here, sorry) Only done night sky a couple of times and chose f8. What do you get at wider apertures? Is the idea to stop the stars streaking?
Rather than try to explain the way I do it, I thought a video would better illustrate the method, so I made one, here, forgive the questionable production quality, I only ever did one of these before.
I hear that it will be named the Mephitidae Mephitis and that the only new feature will be a mode dial that goes all the way around
Very Good ISO performance would be an upgrade for me (assuming that means at least one and possibly two stops lower noise)
That's a very optimistic interpretation of 'very good ISO performance'. A full stop improvement would be a significant jump in technology (especially if it was a 24 MP sensor). Two stops would be groundbreaking. Not going to say it's impossible, but making a crop sensor with better ISO performance than the best full frame sensors would be huge, and it wouldn't be premiered on a $2000 camera.
Given that the 7D has about 40% QE, a 2 stop improvement of the (photon) noise would mean 160% QE, enough to earn Canon a Nobel prize, and shake the foundations of physics.
I really liked the 7D, it's a fantastic camera for it's day except for the very poor quality sensor. It was noisy at low ISO's and it lacked the micro contrast and sharpness of it's full frame brothers of the similar era. Every other part of the camera was excellent. It's handling and UI were a big step forwards for Canon. Certainly better than the XXD which pre-dated it. If there wasn't a 7D then I doubt the 5DIII or 1DX would have been quite as stunning.
