Reminds me of the Sigma camera they were selling for 9,000 then dropped to about 6,000...

I've been getting really unhappy with the low-light performance of my 60D and then I tried someone's 5d2. I am ruined.
Get a grip! (not a battery grip...) The 5DII may offer marginally better low light performance than your 60D, but the difference isn't radical.
You have got a very good camera. Unless it's making money for you, it's an expensive purchase. It was a good choice. Love your 60D.
Understand its strengths & weaknesses and get on with taking great photos. Your 60D is still a better camera in most respects than anyone on the planet had just a few years ago.
Go to youtube there's some reviews of it. Seems pretty good but there isn't any serious test for the moment on the net..
There is a complicating factor here that needs to be acknowledged: with Canon abandoning the APS-H sensor, no one knows what direction they will go in the future to meet the demands of photographers who relied on the extra reach of the 1.3 crop factor of the 1D.
For now, Canon seems to be playing some games with that customer base (promoting "up sampling" for example as a viable alternative to greater resolution). I think they will be watching that market very closely to see if some of these photographers migrate to the 7D, possibly as a second body.
The 7D might not be as indestructible as the 1D series, but it is does have a robust build and could certainly hold its own under most conditions. My own sense is that there may not be enough room in the marketplace for a APS-C body significantly above the 7D. However, I am not privy to Canon's manufacturing costs, so I don't know if it would be cost effective to offer a bombproof, one-piece gripped 7D X version. At a minimum, a 7DII that inherits enough key features of the 1DX to make it attractive to professionals, while still affordable for enthusiasts is plausible.
If there is anything we've learned from Canon over the past two months, it is that past behavior is not an accurate predictor of future behavior. Canon has demonstrated that they are unafraid to take new and unpredictable paths.
THANK YOU, at least someone understands my point with the 7D! yes, its not labeled a 1D camera, but one doesnt have to look too far in the past to see how it outperforms the 1D series of the past. The thing is a beast.
Maybe the roadmap for the 7Dii contains the 1Dx sensor and the 60D becomes the successor to the 7D and the rebel becomes the new 70D... why not push everything up a notch and leave the sub-$1000 market to the 4/3 and point and shoot market? besides, the iphone is the number 1 most used camera reported on flickr... how many people are going to buy a cheap dslr over a free, highly capable point and shoot that comes with their iphone?
besides, I think several days ago CR posted a slide of Canon's roadmap and I didnt see any DSLR on the "consumer" side
what is "up sampling" anyways?
Will it take the 1.4x or 2x extenders?
If it would take a 1.4x AND they'd release a high-pixel-density 1.6-crop body (i.e. 7D Mark II) that could focus at f/8, Canon might get several thousand of my dollars.
Agreed. 21-24 mpx 1.6 crop, 8 fps 7D2 paired with this lens would make a great kit.
