So the transition you refer to is not happening... not at Canon, at least.   :D

Execution does need work but it is happening.  ;D

If you are experiencing soft images with your new EOS 7D Mark II then download the EOS 7D Mark II AF-Setting Guidebook

http://www.brochures.canon-europe.com/getFile.php?productid=9090&languageid=-1

Reading, understanding and practice will most likely resolve the soft image problem 99% of the time.

EOS Bodies / Re: Focus problems with the Canon 7DII?
« on: December 03, 2014, 06:25:55 PM »
I think the focus problems has its roots in unfamiliarity with the body or too much excitement over new gear. In other words user error.

To correct this try downloading and reading the EOS 7D Mark II AF-Setting Guidebook

http://www.brochures.canon-europe.com/getFile.php?productid=9090&languageid=-1

If the body still gives focus problems after thoroughly reading, understanding and practicing what is found in the PDF then try doing microadjustments.

Still a problem? Then send it over to Canon.

Again, I see it as most likely a user error. I myself got a lot of soft images but I put it down to a new lens + new body + not shooting in months than anything else.

Craig, you have my blessing to rename the subject title. I find the honor of my thread as a CR post a bit amusing.  8)

Have it clean then sell it. It will never be optically the same ever again.

Absolutely wonderful for the poor sucker who gets caught buying it. The fungus will come back.
As the seller price it appropriately and make a disclosure.

As the buyer ask questions and thoroughly test before agreeing on the purchase.

Anyone buying used should never expect brand new condition.

What is a Rangefinder Mirrorless Camera?  That sounds pretty Retro, and limited production is not Canons thing, particularly in a falling market.
 
I'd be very happy with a FF mirrorless body that used existing lenses, but I'd just ignore one that needed new lenses.  Using a adaptor with my EF lenses would be out of consideration.
If the rumor is proven true then Canon did a Sony by making a transition to smaller cameras in weight & dimension.

It would be a mistake on Canon's part to allow other companies to make obsolete their products.

I meant full frame mirrorless interchangeable lens camera and/or rangerfinder-like camera.  :P

Marsu42, it is possible for Canon to produce/market in parallel a full frame mirroless lens mount system as a transition period.

I am sure TLR and RF users in the 60s and 70s dissed SLR technology because it was not in the mainstream but look at where they are right now?

But it's true.....

Everyone has left canon..... Yet somehow they are still number one in sales.....

Nobody likes the 7d2, yet it is a hot seller.....
Perhaps Internet wisdom is flawed.....
A more correct interpretation is "early adaptors have left Canon".

The Internet does not like the 7D2 but dolina loves it nonetheless.

Although my wisdom has me endorsing Sony E-mount & Fujifilm X-mount cameras to new camera buyers who have no interest in wildlife/sports and other applications that needs a very competent AF system.

Chances are these new camera buyers will never get lenses/accessories that are Nikon/Canon specific. Not to mention the smaller dimension and lesser weight will encourage them to take their camera with them more often. That's one reason why I got my Canon pancake lens.

"Canon didn't release a new full-frame DSLR this year"
Let us hope that changes next year with the 5D Mark IV shall we? :)

Saying bad things about Benro in the Philippines can cause torch and pitchfork crowd to appear.

Even if it's 1,000% true. ;D

Gitzo's worth it if what you are supporting costs more than $3,000 worth of gear or a project you can't fail.

EOS Bodies / Petapixel: Canon Full Frame Mirrorless

http://petapixel.com/2014/12/03/rumor-canon-get-serious-mirrorless-2015-full-frame-milc-works/

Nutshell:

Canon is rumored to be developing a full frame and/or rangefinder mirrorless interchangeable lens camera.

Judging by how well Sony & Fuji's forays are this may end being true.

Let's pray that Canon's foray is more impactful than the EOS M.

Thanks Click and tayassu.

tayassu coming from the original 7D the AF is superior. Well worth the upgrade if you shoot action/wildlife/sports/events/or any other application that involves movement.

If you tend to have non-moving subjects then a 70D is a better fit.

A lot of friends call this the "baby 1DX".
