I occasionally try to shoot humans, instead of getting them out of my landscape shots...

Fair, but it does confirm that the 7D replacement is coming in September...something that had only been CR2 until this point. And as we've learned with CR2's in the past, that could mean something is years away.
At least now we know when the forums will be flooded with people complaining
We’re told the top plate has a noticeably bigger bump around the viewfinder than the current EOS 7D.A hybrid viewfinder perhaps? Or maybe the return of eye controlled autofocus?
I was thinking the same.
might make more sense to focus on landscape who would probably prefer wider than 16mm and wouldn't care about front element size/shape.
yea I'm glad I waited and was pleasantly surprised at the price. I just pre-ordered. now pondering the Lee setup and solving the vignetting issue... I'm hearing that even the Lee + 105mm adapter + B+W CPL will vignette wider than 20-ish?
Of course, the other problem is getting hotels last minute, which will be difficult in some locations.
Great point! I forgot to mention this in my post, and could be a big factor.
When I travel throughout a state, seemingly at random, I either sleep in my truck, find a campground, or find a forest/area that allows dispersed camping. I'm out all day adventuring, including many times hours after sunset for astrophotography, and up a couple hours before sunrise, so I would have very little time in the hotel, and it makes for what I deem a waste of money.
Granted, this is not for everyone, and I know some people who absolutely have to shower every day, or have to sleep in a bed every day.
If not though, you can fit in quite the adventure during your time for pretty much only the cost of gas
@Tolusina, @SoullessPolack, @Cali_PH, thanks for your amazing advice (and to everyone else for your contributions)! We're going to book the flights this weekend (just under 3 weeks in CA), so then it gives us plenty of time to decide where we want to go and to plan a draft itinerary (without being too specific).
I recently bought some Think Tank Red Whips. They're made for cable management, but I mainly wanted something to add to my tripods; I use it to strap down my camera strap and shutter release when it's windy to prevent them from swinging around and causing vibrations.
Would you know if Red Whips are strong enough to hold up a flash? There are times when I'd like to put flashes in places where I can't use a light stand and no flat surface for the flash to stand on but plenty of bars/branches/whatever to hang from.
