Looks cleaned up & simplified

I hope they did not change the top menue (as the items are changed (e.g. Iso & flash +/-)

Just small incremental upgrades. Not much to show for all the years of development if you ask me. I'll skip the mark II, thank you.
I'm really torn. One group that I talk to is saying that the 70D was only a marginal upgrade over the T2i (that I currently use). They're also saying the 7Dii is going to probably only be a marginal upgrade as well. I bought the T2i years ago when I was first learning how to shoot. But there's a lot of people on this forum saying the image quality would be massively improved over the T2i if I switched to the ii.
I'm photographing mainly wildlife, about 85% of what I photograph is birds, smallish ones. In actuality I'm only using the center focus point probably 90% of the time as well, since I'm good at getting in the range of my 400mm, and it's close enough that the center point covers most of the bird.
May skip the ii, and maybe go to a 5diii or 6d or something, since I'm not hurting for reach in the least.
Probably will not know until Monday or Tuesday. Those specs don't seem to get leaked.
Is this relevant for focusing speed? (E.g. Supertele+Extender @ f/8)
If no, then it's pretty irrelevant for the target audience because the sensor is too small for low light action shots.
The sum of minor improvements creates a nice package
So the D750 which uses a recycled sensor and has some improvements is a nice package, but the 7DII which (probably) uses a recycled sensor and has some improvements...no reason to buy that. Whatever.
Come on guys, we´re on page 40 now. Let´s have an ambition to keep it going past 50 before the end of the day. Still lots of unused off-topic arguments and insults to throw inI looked at Mr. Sporgons HP and found some incredible good looking pictures. 3 pages have been written in meantime. If there are other good HPs, please tell me! Then I will look in this topic again and we will be @ page 50.
There's a reason Canon doesn't use Sony sensors. It's bad for having a competitive edge, like Apple oursourcing their LCD parts to Samsung, which resulted in Samsung turning around and becoming their largest competitor using the same tech. Canon's a little behind on their R&D, or they're with-holding it for some reason we're not completely aware of, and I think frustrations from people on both sides - those who are tired of this, and those who are tired of the vocalness of the first group - are what's causing the animosity. Some statements from both sides, name-calling or those threatening to jump ship and saying controversial statements that Canon is basically going to die / isn't competitive anymore are what feeds the fire.
I totally understand why Canon doesn't outsource sensor production to Sony. I meant more "Sony equivalent". I honestly do not care at all about the argument or taking sides on it because, as I said, Canon is doing what I want it to do for what I shoot, for the most part. I'm just getting super exasperated with a couple people here straight up denying reality. Its like watching an evolution or climate change debate.
This is the kind of camera that makes people change systems.
Maybe a little will change but not many.
some D700 and D300 users will feel this is not real replacement to them, 1/4000 top shutter speed and flash sync only 1/200, No AF-on button, body style.
This is more like D620, upgrade from D600/D610 to D750.
This camera will kill the sales of the newly announced D610, which killed the newly announced D600 few months earlier. It's a good competitor to the 6D though, and I hope Canon's 6D Mark II will have a real focusing system, not that desperate 1 cross type point one.
True, but let we wait the real world testing on real camera. I think Canon purposely give 6D the simple feature to not compete with their own advance model like 5D3 and 70D.
Yes, typical Canon... you can get a feature-packed 7DII and (presumably) IQ quality not far off from a 2010 Rebel, and live with it for the next 5 years. Or you can get a 6D with great IQ but with autofocus from a 2010 Rebel. If you want both IQ and features, you need to fork out another $1000-$1500 to move up to the 5DIII.
At least on paper, this seems to be a fantastic all-around camera, at a good price.
Thanks. I honestly have no vendetta against Canon. I think most of the Canonites here have lumped me in with "the rest" because I'm not raving about everything Canon anymore. I want what I want, but that doesn't mean I'm going to diss Canon for everything they do. They still make great cameras...however they are falling very, very far behind on that one critical front: raw sensor IQ.
Play with a few Exmor raw images, compare them to pretty much any Canon raw image, and you'll start to see the differences. At first, you don't think it's significant...then you really start pushing exposure around, or you do just a little NR and see a huge improvement even deep into the shadows. Or you even just compare the midtones...and realize how much more color fidelity the Exmor image has without any adjustments at all (this is the wax-works that LTLRI refers to...Canon images, when you get right down into them, have a slightly grayish appearance...it's a lack of color fidelity that images from say a D800 simply don't have...the D800 colors are very rich. My suspicion is that Canon's weakened CFA is bleeding color channels...greens are mixing into reds and blues and vice versa, resulting in more washed out, less pure...and therefor grayish and "waxy"...color.)
I really wish Canon would fix the problem...and if/when they do, I'll be the first in line to pre-order and buy their new high mp, high DR camera when it hits the street. I just...kinda, don't think they will...not for a good long while. :\
There is really an difference in IQ. It is a pity that Canon does not respond on this
