The old truth floated back into my consciousness yesterday - generally, you get what you pay for.
While I agree for the most part and would apply that sentiment to the overall picture quality that can be obtained with the given camera choices, not necessarily for given functions of the cameras. When the first 7D came out cheaper than the 5DII, the 7D had the superior AF. The AF from 1DX and 5DIII is proven tech, but it would seem canon tried to test some changes to it on the 7DII before then releasing a further advanced system in the coming FF releases. As mentioned above I think they will get it performing as it should with some firmware changes. Perhaps rushed out to market before fully tuned. If you want conspiracy, then perhaps the improoved performance will be released after the new FF bodies are out with the next generation AF and the performance levels will be realigned between model lines at there price points.
