So... Next week I'll probably buy the IS versione forma 1148 euro in a local shop in my town :-)

Attached is a photo of the blue angels at the Chicago air and water show. Taken with t2i, 70-200 f4 IS + x1.4 III so it is a pretty close representation of what the that lens + extender combo would be with the 7d. I now have the 7D and I can say that the 70-200 f4 IS performs excellently with it. My only complaint is that I feel the 70-200 focal length range is a better companion to FF than crop. Many times I find the 70 too long and the 200 too short for my needs, which has me switching back to the 100-400 or 15-85. But when 70-200 on a crop fits the focal length i need the results are superb!
Also forgive the lowing quality of the image as I just pulled it from my Facebook and posted it here as I am not at home.
The Japanese Yen has fallen considerably in value in recent months. Japanese exports should therefore be much cheaper now for buyers, so why are Canon prices remaining so high? I'd love a new Canon 5D mk III but current MAP limitations are keeping prices high and stopping me from buying.
All you can do is try and see what happens. Can always shoot moonlit scenes or star trails instead easily enough with slower glass and lower ISOs.
In your opinion, may I acheive a good result with canon 7D too at high iso? better to shoot in RAW I think...
Might get something worthwhile at F1.4 yeah. Not sure what ISO I'd expect to get away with. 3200 maybe.
I did this last spring with a rented 5D III and Canon 14L. Did it last fall with a 5D II and Canon 24L. Now just did it again with a 6D and Samyang 24(as well as the Samyang 14 and Zeiss 21).
The 6D is simply a beast with high ISOs and the night sky. Even more of one than the 5D III was, easily trumping it. 12,800 was not a problem at all. Quite amazing actually. 10,000 felt like one was starting to push it for the 5D III. The same feeling probably comes in around 20,000 ISO or so on the 6D.
The Samyang 24 F1.4 was a load better for this than the coma abusive Canon 24L II. Plenty fine using it at F1.4 for this. Paired on the 6D it is pretty insane what can be had.
The Samyang 14 also a lot better for this than the Canon 14L II.
All images on here just one exposure, so no tracking stuff obviously. http://www.extremeinstability.com/2013-5-4.htm
I made a second page with full size crop examples for some 6D high ISO ideas as well as the coma of the 4 lenses. I could probably add something if something was wanted. It's clearly not a direct comparison as I never shot with that in mind and had the gear at completely different times. It is what it is and I'm sure enough to give some an idea what to expect that might help. http://www.extremeinstability.com/2013-5-4b.htm
From having used them, I would say that using an extender with the 70-200 mk1 + 2.0x II wasn't very good. However, mk2 + 2.0x III 3 is phenomenal. I would highly recommend it, even over a 100-400.
