It's a flagship
Not necessarily. The 1D series will continue to be the flagship, I don't know how the big MP camera will be numbered, but most probably it won't be 1, IMO.

It's a flagship
We’re told there is still discussion in regards to form factor of such a camera. There’s probably an even 50/50 split in preferences between an EOS-1Dx style body or a EOS 5D Mark III style body. I fall into the latter category, the smallerMe too. Both for the big megapixel camera and for the 7D MkII.
I hope it's not the 7d body!I think it's neither your 7D nor the grip. But if you want to sleep peacefully tonight, why don't you insert whichever kind of fresh AA-sized batteries in your grip and try right now? Disposable alkalines don't last long, actually only a few minutes shooting LV, but are fine for just running a test.
nope, going to go into calumet tomorrow and hopefully try batts in alt body.
Really bothersome the adverts in the posts made in threads.
I still am firmly in the camp that the 7D2 is (a) absolutely going to be aimed at pros (for birders, sports guys, etc.) and (b) is absolutely going to cost more than the 6D.
Forget all the high tech guff for a minute...go out and buy a 100D/SL1 slap on a shorty forty, walk down the city street and shoot, shoot, shoot. Go on you know you want too....it's called fellin gooooood! Don't be shy post them here.
Felling good: Felling things in an effective manner, as in chopping down trees...
I assume you meant feeling good?
I feel when better shooting my 300 2.8 with a 7D with BG, and a 2x TC...
Near-white concrete will also feel far hotter than grass. Try it - also guaranteed. The transfer of heat is far more complicated than just colour.
Admittedly I would never want to spend this much on a single lense or piece of camera equipmentI would, if I only could... but I can't, so it's not going to happen
...why for the convenience of having a built-in extender someone would pay so much for a relatively slow lense.I wouldn't call the 400 f/4 combo "relatively slow", even if it was referred to a prime lens; I'd love a 400 f/4 IS prime. Being a zoom, I'd rather say the 200-400 f/4 is pretty fast. Price will drop considerably in a couple of years, anyway.
I am guessing that getting the new 18 micron process thang is not going as well as they would like... The 7D mk II will probably be the first to be released using the new process, somewhere around 24 MP with ISO up to 102,400... probably the new 3200 ISO will be as good as the old 400 ISO...
