EOS Bodies / Re: B & H is already selling 7D Mark II Accessories

if 95MB/s is more than enough for 7FPS 60+ photos, then 280MB/s is more than enough for 12fps.

and I actually hope 7D successor will have 1xCF 1xSD. i just love the no need for external adapters. i just flick the SD into my MBPr and be done with it.

What would be the results if I were to use that lens on a new 7D Mk2?
I don't know, how many MP does 7DII have again? I forgot, since it's been out for so long.

haven't read the whole topic, just few first pages, but are you people really believing this rumour? its a rumour, yet you are treating it as a fact.

If I recall correctly, the Digic 6 processors were designed for point&shoot cameras to allow for better noise reduction for jpg processing.
Yes and no. 7D has Dual Digic 4 (not +) also. Dual Digic 6 are possible? But who would know.

the only thing I would bet on is a new more MP sensor and 10FPS. with that, they could use slightly higher than 7FPS burst rate and same sensor in forthcoming 80D, which is probably due in 2016, and still wouldn't endanger the 7D2.

Lenses / Re: World Cup started - no sign of 100-400L Mk2

how the HELL would YOU even NOTICE a freaking specific lens from 400 photographers stacked up around the field on a TV? do you have a special program on your TV where a camera swoops across every photographer there and showing their gear?

stop whining about I HAVENT SEEN a 7D2 or insert random lens here.

for f*** sake people.

there might never be another EF-S lens released with USM and full time manual focusing again now that they've gotten stepper motors cheap enough to stuff into these things. Think on that for a minute. The pretty darn good (but $$$) 17-55mm 2.8, the solid 15-85mm and the cool 10-22mm could all lose their excellent USM when they get refreshed, regardless of better optics.
i'm pretty sure the most expensive EF-S lenses will retain USM motors.

So I'm using a Canon 500D with it's 9 point AF system and what I'm wondering is, just what does the theorized ....  7D2 ...... mean for my photography?
one with the "7D2" (which we dont know jack sh*t about it yet, like FPS etc) will have not only twice, but up to 3x more photos and probably caught a better moment, with a lot more probability that they will tack sharp and more of them in focus, with (slighty) better IQ in all regards. and probably get the job done and get paid.

it will also cause jizz in your pants when hearing machine gun sound like shutter.

…and cost $1399.   :P
ok, now you're just being silly.

6D's AF capabilities and focus points are just plain sad for today's standards for a camera worth that much money and a FF label. Some people defend it by saying "it can take sports photos too!". Sure it can, I did it with my 550D also. I can make my eggs on a hot engine of my car, but I can do better.

Nobody denies 6D's low light focusing ability though.

special presents are either 3some and more with several girls or a 1DX, not a 7D Mark II.

it's true what jrista says. i would trade you my 70D for your 1D4 any time :)

mine works like a charm, however there have been some reports of focusing issues. read


and this
