Not unless it allows me to do something that would make me lots of money and that I can't do for cheaper another way. Besides, the ultimate camera in 2015 is mediocre in 2017.

I am fine with 20 to 24 MP.+1.
I don't care for more than 30 MP because for me it only costs disk space and makes pixel peepers happy - or even not.
Same MP, better high and low ISO performance, maybe some DR on top and I'm fine.
To say it in other words:
The 5D4 must have a real big improvement in IQ (not pixel resolution) that you can recognize at once in real world usage.
Minor improvements (half an stop ISO here, little less noise there) are not enough.
Otherwise I am not interested at all.
I am doing more and more work that I would rather use the 90TS-E for, but I am going to stick with my 100 L Macro until it gets the MkII rework, not fussed abut the IQ as the current isn't far off, much more concerned about the shift and tilt rotations, I will not buy one until I can control those like the 17 and 24 MkII.
According to an interview with Mr Makoto Sakaeta Masaya, the managing director of Canon Image Communication Business Division. Canon is exploring the possibility of a new lens mount. I suspect its application would be for a full frame mirrorless system of some kind.
I am a photographer and not a videographer. After viewing the Chuck Westhall video I was not really inspired to want to upgrade my 7D. We seem to have waited a long time for the 7D2 and I was expecting more 'must have' features.+1, although I won't know for sure until I can process 7D2 raw images and compare them to comparable 7D images. I was hoping that the 7D2 would be mirrorless and capable of 24 full resolution images per second. At 18MP, that would require 432MP/Sec. The Samsung does 420MP/Sec.
Another tidbit from this Photokina article regarding EOS M, Canon's third lens ecosystem.
The newest range of Canon lenses is the EF-M series for the company's new "mirrorless" cameras, a line that's more compact than traditional SLRs. Canon only has a handful of EF-M lenses, but during a press conference here, the company committed to adding more.
That's notable, since it indicates that Canon is playing a long game with its mirrorless models, which were late to market compared to many rivals' models and thus far haven't spread widely.
I have a Canon 5D Mark III and I'm wondering besides the "full frame" sensor, just why would anyone spend more money on the 5dm3 and not buy the 7dm2? the 7DM2 seems like a great camera in every way...I have a 5D3 and 7D and find them a great pairing. The 5D3 is the indoor/winter camera and the 7D is the outdoor/summer camera. As good as the 7D2 is, I can't imagine it being as good as the 5D3 at ISO 6400 or even ISO 1600. I just hope the 7D2 has a proper auto ISO implementation in Manual mode.
Wow! Really F6.3 being marketed as a sports lens? Maybe on the planet Venus. Rarely is F6.3 enough to stop sports action.Sports action isn't stopped by aperture, it is stopped by shutter speed. If the shutter speed isn't fast enough, just raise the ISO. I'm pretty sure that is what Canon 1Dx and Nikon D4x users do when using their 200-400 lenses with a 1.4x TC.
