EOS Bodies / Re: Digic 7 Development
« on: September 13, 2014, 11:01:27 AM »
It's speculation on my part but I believe that is the barrier to Canon releasing a high MP camera.  They need at least a 2X jump in processing capability.  The Nikon D800 fell short in in frame rate or else it may have made more of an impact

I'm in.  It looks like it will outperform or matches the 5 year old 1D Mark IV in most categories except possibly very high ISO

EOS Bodies / Digic 7 Development
« on: September 13, 2014, 09:31:36 AM »
This new processor is the key to high MP cameras.  Doubling the resolution will require 1.414 times the processing power.  The current Digic 6 will drop the 1Dx to 8FPS.  The Digic 7 is going to be a dual Digic 6 in one package which will allow 4x the processing power for high MP, high frame rate bodies.

The 300/2.8 IS I and the 400/2.8 have gone way down after the initial bump.  I think Canon prices the IIs higher to move out the I inventory.

I for one am getting tired of waiting. Evolutionary is good enough for me, though, as I want an action APS-C  camera (birding) that is better than the 60D I have now (better AF, more fps, slightly better high ISO, ample buffer for RAW), and is not as expensive as the 1DX or 5D3.

A 70D fits your requirements already and at a decent price

EOS Bodies / Re: 7DII full frame?
« on: September 08, 2014, 10:30:44 AM »
Maybe 7D was supposed to be full frame initially.  Canon's flagship APS-C bodies were x0D bodies, notably 40D, 50D, and now 70D.  Was anyone else surprised that Canon used the xD naming for the 7D in 2009?

Seems plausible since it makes sense for Canon to have commonality so they could choose between the 6D and 70D Sensors.

At 3,000.00, a used 1D MK IV will be a far better camera than a $1800 7D MK II.

Precisely, an $1800 7D Replacement won't exist

Good guess, but that's all it is until it comes out.

Come to think of it, we can probably predict the price better than the specs.  $2149-$2599 is a hole in Canon's lineup barring price movements and speccing the body between the 5D3 and 1Dx, which is between $4999 and $5499 but that would have to be specced between those 2 bodies, which would be enticing too.

EOS Bodies / Pricing for the 7D Replacement
« on: August 28, 2014, 10:52:42 AM »
Judging by the specs, the new body should fall between the $3399 list of the 5D3 and the $1899 of the 6D.  I'm guessing a $2599 list.  It won't be below the $1899 of the 6D because the 70D is at $1199 and Canon doesn't want to cannibalize those sales.  If they use the 5D3/6D ratio, then a new APS-C body would be $2149 which would be great and shouldn't affect 6D sales.

Somewhere between $2149 and $2599 is doable unless the used 1D Mark IV falls below $2000

EOS Bodies / Re: Are you planning to purchase a 7D2
« on: August 27, 2014, 01:21:32 PM »

I assume you are including me in the "FF snobs" comment? If so why, what do you know about my needs, current gear and the 7D MkII that I don't?

Oh I own a 1D too.


No, but you did.  But you made me read your post.  You say you have no interest in a "performance" crop body but you still own a 1D?  Incidentally, the 7D and the 1Ds Mk III were aimed at different segments.  While the 7D is better for some, the 1Ds III is better for others.  I've seen 7Ds on the sports sidelines and no 1Ds IIIs.   It's the reverse in the studio.  I have FF, APS-H, and APS-C bodies that I use in different situations.  The 1Dx would replace all 3  but at twice the cost. I don't know your needs but you don't know everyone else's either.

Wow, FF snobs abound......everyone knows the 1D Marks I-IV are crop bodies, right?

Actually if it has 10fps, usable ISO to 6400, 45AF points, dual CF and SD cards, and dual pixel AF, it will be better than the 1D Mark IV.  Now, it depends on price compared to the 1D Mark IV.  If the new body is close to those specs, I'm going to replace my 5D Mark II, 1D Mark III, and 70D with the new body, a 1D Mark IV, and a 6D.  Or sell every one of them and add $2000 to buy a 1Dx.
