I, for one, hope they make it 20mp for low light performance. Helps for speed also.
I remember having my very dissapointing 1d3 when a friend bought the 7d when it's brand new. I was jealous, lol. (Yeah, nice story grandpa) lol. But the 7d didn't hold back, it went all in, and I think that is a superb line to follow. All things made "all-in" are usually great successes . Same with 1dx compared to the 1d3 and 1d4 imo. And it is what made the D3s the legend it is, they went all in... Keep it up Canon !
That’s it right there, will this be an ‘all in’ camera or compromised. If those OP links and previous speculation on this site are correct it sounds to me like its going to be an ‘all in’ camera carrying on the 7D tradition.
I don’t care what the MP will be we know it will be at least 18, great.
AF in 1Dx territory, ambitious! but wow, but lets say 5D3, great.
We know that image quality will be at least as good as the 70D which is a step up from the 7D, great.
We know the ergonomics will be as good as the 7D, great.
FPS at least 8, great.
What will be interesting for me will be things like the card(s) choice/ slot count and how deep the buffer will be. USB 2 or 3, in software will it have proper auto ISO with ISO comp from the get go? these are secondary things, not show stoppers in any way but indicators of ‘all in’
I’m really really looking forward to this announcement because in a couple of years time I’ll either have a 7DII a 6DII or the 5DIII depending on my needs at that time.
