Looks like Matt Granger answered the metering question.  Similar to the 1DX...  hubba-hubba!

Something I have not heard much about is the focusing system/choices carried over from the 7D mkI version.  Has it remained the same?  It was rather sophisticated already, but I'm curious if Canon adapted/integrated anything from the 1D or 5D series.

This is a great price as well.

I thought Canon was getting out of the "point and shoot" camera business?  Is this camera more a "dive and shoot" type?

I find it hard to believe that everyone there is a professional.  No hobbyist shooters, schmucks with iPhones, Canon SX50's?  Who was the guy that took the shot at the last Olympics of all the photographers pointed toward the sports action?  We need a shot from "THAT GUY"!

Just Say'in..

With all the long lens cameras covering the World Cup, I find it hard to believe there isn't even an incidental shot of the 7D Mk.II - that is if it's even there?

The mention that this will be positioned as a Professional APS-C camera is what I hoped for.  I think the Pentax K-3 fits this niche as well.  If the price is attainable, I look forward to replacing my aged XS.

Please, not another "priced out of this universe" camera body!

It does look sweet though!

PowerShot / Re: Canon to Leave the Entry Level Point & Shoot Market?

I'm looking at my 2 PowerShot cameras - an old A720 and an A2200.  While all the specs would be/should be better on the A2200, the A720 has a superior lens package.  The A2200 blows it away otherwise.

A720 8mpix
5.8-34.8mm f/2.8-4.8  MACRO capable focus is 1mm or closer!

A2200 14 mpix
5.0-20.0mm f/2.8-5.9

Maybe if Canon had put more effort into lens technology in these low end cameras they would take better pictures than a cell phone?  I guess the point is moot now.  :-\

I would still rather use a point and shoot camera than a cell phone...  Only advantage the phone has is the post processing features...  which may indicate I took a bad picture to begin with.  LOL

Anyway, I hope Canon can catch up to the likes of Sony, Pentax and Olympus - and FAST!  Both Nikon and Canon have fallen behind in innovative features, and in some cases current technologies.

Come on Canon, I'm routing for you!

It seems like a high end APS-C camera would have a higher profit margin than a mid-low level one.  Similar to the automobile industry, the difference between a Cadillac and a Chevy is negligible when it comes to sourcing parts, but the profit on a Cadillac is higher, because your paying for "a Cadillac".

Other than a magnesium body, what are the REAL differences between a 70D and a 7D?  The menu system for sure, but that's easy to change...  The DIGIC processor...?

My point is, they have more in common than in difference.

I hope the single memory card slot is just a prototype version...  I was looking at the new Pentax K3, and it's as good as the 7D MkI with dual card slots.  I am glad Canon is putting GPS into the new 7D.  For photographing wildlife, it's a great to know where as well as when you took the shot of some critter.

As for the rest of the feature, it's a along time coming, and I hope Canon keeps the 7D on par with the 5D and 1D series in future versions.

On the surface, this subscription model Adobe is using looks like a flop.  Kelby was giving away a full year at Photoshop World, and now this incredible deal.  I guess if your making money at this, it's better than the box purchase.   Adobe need to market this model as a SERVICE, not a PRODUCT.   You rent a service, but you own a product. 

It almost seems like Adobe shot themselves in the foot when they released Lightroom.  It does everything Camera RAW does (with a better interface), and you don't have to buy Photoshop to get the Camera RAW updates.

Until I start making "boatloads" of cash from my photography (LMAO), I think I'll stick to the Lightroom/PS Elements lineup and save BIG!

Thanks again for another price tip.  You save me a lot of money between this deal and the Google NIK bundle.

damn, just realized that i used loctite on my camera plates. well, i'll probably never need to remove them anyway, but i bet they'll still come undone if needed. oh well. actually, by the time i'm ready to offload my 5d, the plate might be worth more than the camera. funny digital...

In the future... if you use the blue Loctite, this isn't a problem.  :(
