I hope my 7D MkII comes Friday. I had also ordered the powergrip and extra batteries. So, if the body is available, I hope they do not hold it up for the grip.

I'd thought we'd start the week looking forward to something. What features / performance levels would get you excited about the 7D2?
I want a positive statement from you about what would legitimately fire you up to own a 7D2. No snarky "APS-C is not for me so I'll say 'A 50 MP FF sensor', ha ha" stuff. Seriously, what would get you excited when the 7D2 announcement comes?
Disclaimer: I'm not trying poke fun at Ivan's original thread so much as build some excitement around a release. Mondays need positive thoughts because they are, in fact, Mondays.
Some of us want a lens we can know will perform in the rain and snow. Is this as weather resistant as Canon's L-series lenses? Can this lens go to the windy beach and not get clogged with sand? I've had Canon's 24-105mm f/4L IS in all sorts of conditions, and I have not thought twice about it. Dumb luck or specs, I do not know.
Is there a reliable rating system for such a question?
Hey, no weather sealing, not to mention the double-barrel zoom makes an extra area "exposed" for potential element influx. I don't think Sigma has an "All weather" rating, and neither does Canon (not even all the white L lenses are weather sealed).
thank you for sharing this, Roger is always great and maybe the smartest person in this business.Any of the plastic bodies/lenses will last if you treat them with some kindness. I'm rather hard on my equipment. So I pay extra for the little extra durability. The report is not taking into account that someone with tougher equipment is tougher on the equipment. Someone carrying a porcelain camera/lens would be extremely gentle with it. If a few years later their metal camera broke but the porcelain camera was intact does that make the metal camera less durable or more prone to breaking? I think not.
anyway, I think metal lenses/cameras are being overrated, my plastic 6D is as durable as supposed to be all metal the Sony A7R or the Nikon D800E or the 5D3.
and my rebel XTi lasted more than 7 years.
new gen engineering plastics are very tough with good amount of elasticity to it.
