Wow for that money at least they threw in the 18-55mm IS STM

So I was recently presented with the opportunity to trade out my seldom used 24-70II for a Fuji Xt-1 w/ kit lens and 56/1.2.
I am now officially invested in systems with Canon (6D and EOS M), Sony (A7r), and Fuji (xt-1 and x100s).
In the grand scheme of things, I don't think the 7D II will live up to many peoples prior expectations that it would be a "5D III high ISO killer"...simply isn't going to happen.
In the grander scheme of things that was never a realistic expectation though.
True, but a lot of people had hopes that would be the case. Just saying, the preliminaries are pretty much crushing that hope. It's better than the 7D (as it damn well should be!), but nothing exceptionally good...its a small evolutionary improvement over the 70D.
Don't buy one "to get it all in"
Although I did shoot a few Panos at 16mm pretty happy with the results.
I am a similar situation as you. I have three kids and I don't shoot professionally. But I love the 5D3's. Used to have the original 7D and since going to 5D3, had to sell it (the 7D). I stopped using the 7D altogether and it was just collecting dusk. Since then, I'd been happy shooting with 5D3. The spec on new 7D2 looks great, but I would never let go of my 5D3. If anything, I would get a 6D or another 5D3. Full frame all the way for me.
I'm thinking I can sell it for a 7dii and use the rest to invest in a prime lens which I'm missing in my collection.
5diii to 7dii?
