Good job, but I find most of these photos bit too tight.

OK I give up! - "Why isn't Canon working on DSLRs with higher dynamic range"You are simply just shooting scenes that don't have a lot of DR and avoiding all the ones that do.
Am I missing something? I have yet to have problems with the Dynamic range capabilities of any Canon DSLR that I have owned.
Am I just exposing properly?
I've shot many scenes where the 11-12 stops of DR my Canon sensor could capture was insufficient. However, for the vast majority of those scenes, the 13-14 stops of DR from a SoNikon sensor would also have been insufficient.
Canon as market leader don’t need an excuse to not bring a 36 mp camera to the market.
Canon sells the most camera, thus Canon makes the best cameras. How about: the majority of people live in cities where they breathe polluted air, thus air-pollution is good for us?
Or did you mean Canon is the market-leader through technological superiority? Sorry to burst that bubble, but even Olympus makes better mirrorless cameras than Canon.My guess is they thought they wouldn’t make enough profit with a 30+ mp FF camera on top of the 1DX, 1DC, 5DIII and 6D. High mp 135 format cameras are a niche market (landscape, advertising, architecture) with competition from Nikon, Sony and from the medium format manufacturers.
And yet Canon still makes tilt & shift lenses even though the application these lenses are design for, is, according to you, a niche market. And on the flipside, Canon makes a 600mm lens, which is also a niche product. Sorry, but that argument of "niche products" never floated.Canon has been market leader for 11 years in a row, so they know they can rely on their market research people.
Bwahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!! Then why are sales figures down? And please don't blame the "global recession", 'cause a really decent marketing dept. would still be able to increase sales by tapping into new markets ... using niche products.
If I recall, the main selling point of the 7D when it was released was it's superior redesigned AF system and FPS over the XXD. Here was a solution to those in the prosumer segment that couldn't afford a 1D series to afford a better AF system and were complaining about the old 9 point AF system. It was definitely a more action/sports/wildlife kinda camera. Right now, I would say Canon's AF offerings are on-par - so really is a 7d mark II even needed?
My question is what "big" photography related improvements could they do to an already fine piece of equipment
I don't want to sound cynical, but I hope the 7DII isn't just a 70D with the 'top end' ergonomics, just as the xxD line had up until the 60 and 70D combined a rebel interface with the larger body.
A little faster, gain a proper rear wheel + joystick, maybe lose the pop up flash.....
