put my vote down for the 7D2 as well.....

I believe that the review on DPREVIEW said that it was linked.......Any mention of whether the metering will be linked to the AF point? That would be icing on the cake for me, but see no mention of it.
I would suspect no, sadly.
But, back on topic. I think we are not far away from the day when most brides will expect that the picture of them walking down the aisle will be posted to Facebook before the ceremony ends.
Dare I say it, I'm pretty disappointed that there is no Wifi in the 7DII.+1
I've got a 70D and have never posted a picture to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, but have had great results using the Canon App to control the camera wirelessly to get up close and personal to wildlife with some great results, and then connecting to my iPad afterwards in the pub to view my shots on a decent sized screen.
I think Canon have missed an important trend here.
Consequently, i can't think of one occasion where GPS would have been of any use to me at all.
Am I missing the point?
Is "EV -3 AF" another way of saying lenses can auto focus at f/8? E.g. will I be able to use auto focus with my 100-400 and 1.4x extender?
-3 AF on a crop sensor is about as useful as a screen door on a submarine.
^I think somebody posted here in CR that the N has additional juice ; oh well good to know. .
It sounds like he is asking highly biased questions and will ignore whatever answers he gets because his mind is already made up....
That's what I meant by poorly worded questions.
What do you want to shoot with it? Static or dynamic subjects? Do you need high ISO? Do you need top-notch AF? Those two bodies are two totally different beasts meant for different genres of photography...+1
Just letting you guys know, the B&H preview video explicitly says that the sensor is not the same as the one in the 70D.
Here is the video in question:
Yes but some people are still disappointed with it
The very first thing I noticed about the Canon 7D II, is the battery change, and the asking price of the battery, $99.00. I'm going to do a little research about this battery. I'll look at the A/hr, voltage, etc. I'm thinking they only changed the pin out, and not really changed the specs for the battery. As Canon thinks, just make it more expensive, the Canon battery may even be chipped, so 3rd party manufactures are shut out.
No time wasted, the rough specs have been out for 6 months, only those hoping for something that defies the laws of physics will be disappointed.
