Improvement on MagicLantern's implementation of the dot tune method? Sounds cool. Anything is welcome... as long as it's free...

I really do not have big expectations from 7DII...
Forget about better DR and high ISO performance.
The bulbous front element makes filter use difficult (like the TS-e 17L) and costly. The resolution wide open on the 14-24 is extraordinary...but stopped down (for DOF) there is little real world difference between it and the 16-35IIL.
Every brand has it's ebb and flow, its peaks and luls, it's oscillations. Canon had their peak, and have entered a lul. They will have another peak in a year or two, and another, and another, ad inf.
Use the Amazon best sellers list. As of tonight, Canon has 13 of the top 20 best sellers. Nikon has 7.
No, I haven't missed the point. But I think perhaps you've missed the point that Canon has focused their sensor R&D in areas that they think customers will impact customer buying decisions, and low ISO DR isn't one of those.
Lower noise and higher DR are what I look for in successive cameras and that improvements should be visible right through the range of ISO values, not just in one particular area. It just so happens that one of Canon's competitors has produced a camera that quite clearly trounces Canon at ISO below 800, giving us a better feel for what's possible with existing technology.
Oh my, the Philippines will be getting this before the US. Take that Apple!
It's just that most Europeans are smart enough to refuse buying sub-par products at grossly inflated prices.
We should all reflect on how fortunate we are in comparison to the majority of people across the globe.
But when some company brings the same old sh!t and call it brand new and asks for a premium, we have a problem. However apparently some people are perfectly happy about that too...
We just feel short changed that's all..it's not because we need the new tech..it's because we're paying for something new, we'd want something new.
Given that the original M flopped in the US, Canon may feel that the M2 is not attractive enough for the American market. I'm confident that the articulated screen and sensor from the 70D (or at least their technologies) will make it in to a premium mirrorless camera next year. Its just such an obvious step for Canon to take.
Their may be 1 more generation left in DSLRs but with EVFs offering features that OVFs can't the mirror's days are looking numbered.
Well at $1,399 for a body and kit lens and $899 for the additional lens I would hope it would put my $299 kit to shame!
