Totally dorky, but I was bored, and felt like using my new wireless mic setup, so I made an unboxing video...

So, when my 7D2 gets here, I've decided to take a stab at doing a video review - mainly for the fun of it. Does anyone have any specific features/items they'd like to see touched on? Any suggestions/input for what you'd like to see specifically covered would be great.
Ability track high-speed moving subjects moving from/to the camera, and ability to lose and regain focus when those objects leave the frame or the area of the frame you are using to focus. According to the manual, face mode will work on those objects (by tracking them) even if they aren't faces. I do a lot of shooting of airplanes, which is why I'm asking.
Just noticed you are in Denver. I am too...maybe I could provide the objects to shoot!
I'm talking about video, by the way. I'm already convinced of it's still focusing capabilities.
Amazon seems to be slow in filling pre-orders, often leaving buyers waiting when everyone else has theirs. I stopped when they cancelled my pre-order for a new DSLR model that I had ordered the first day. They waited a month to do this, and said they had a error in the listing, but I could re-order and go to the rear of the waiting list.
And, for that matter, why would the 5DIII need to be replaced?
Not spring. Canon has to milk buyers with the 7D2 for a year or so. If they released 5D4 with 7D2's AF feature in spring (5 months after 7D2 got released (not introduced)), who would buy the 7D2, if the 5D4 offers same or even tweaked AF with slightly lower frame, but better IQ?
I find it strange they haven't introduced a new rebel yet. It's been 18 months now.
Elsewhere, someone worked on a 7DII raw file and found rather clean shadows:
This is way out of my expertise, and all though it looked good from a shaddow point of view, I would have liked to see a few more examples. The steel railings (which in the original is quite dark) are somewhat smudgy in the shaddowenhanced picture. I am not sure if that is the way the steelrailing looks inherently, but could also resemble some sort of banding, could it not?
I'm interested, but waiting on some real world feedback. If things look good, then I'll be in the second wave of people to make a purchase. Surapon gave some valuable advice which I will follow.
BTW, from the pictures that I can see, the noise level looks great at iso 3200. I have not seen any full size images though. Has canon posted any sample RAW pictures that are downloadable?
