Thank you for not changing the battery type and keep the LP-E6 for this beauty.

I haven't read through the whole thread so forgive me if I'm asking something that has already been addressed. But is anyone else curious as to the purpose of the CR1616 battery listed in the box contents? That's a nickle-sized, flat disc type battery.
For date/time functions to keep running when you are charging your batteries
It came factory installed on my new 50D and 7D and my CLP 7D. When you read the "Getting Started" section of the manual there is no mention of installing the CRxxxx battery. It's back in the "Replacing the Date/Time Battery" section. I imagine the 40D and 5D2 are the same.
Boy, don't I feel stupid I've been shooting with a 5DMKII that I bought new a year ago and I swear I don't remember seeing or installing this battery. But I just looked in the manual and sure enough, there it is on page 217. Did this come factory installed on the Mark II?
So that's what about 4 in the morning gmt?
Sounds like a party, cupcakes and beer for all!!
Would the existing 7D users sell off your current 7D's after you buy the 5D3, if the AF of 5D3 can match the 7D?
Well it says its not a 2.8.......
I wonder if Canon will double the price on this one also.
Let's hope that it's not $3500 body only!
I have a 7D body, with sigma 17-70, canon 70-200 f/2.8 IS II, and I recently replace sigma 17-70 with canon 24-105 IS. The 24-105 is for sure the lens if you can only carry 1 lens. It is a lot sharper than sigma 17-70. I was debating on 24-105 f/4 IS or 24-70 f/2.8 for a while. The new 24-70 II makes the old look bad, and the new one is way to expensive, and without IS. The 70-200 f/2.8 is so heavy, unless I know I will need to use f/2.8, I don't want to carry it.
Are you thinking that IS changes the shutter speed or ISO setting? It doesn't.
yes exactly. now the questions is if the 24-105 requires 1/4 of a second (compared to 1/2 on the f/2., the IS allows you to hand hold it more steady, so what is the "effective" shutter speed? People claim that IS compensates 3-4 stops. does this translates to directly an effective shutter speed?
Ok, now i understandWhy are you quoting your own post?
He meant to click Modify, but clicked Quote instead. I do that from time to time.
If this rumor is true I want to know who was the bird/sport/wildlife shooter that really
pisanoyed the Canon execs? Kill the 1D4 and now kill the 7D?
If you merge the 7D into the 70D what will it cost for a xxxD shooter to move up to the 70D? Will they pay that much? Well, if they just move the present 7D into the smaller body they could save the development cost of a 7D2 but then what will 7D users do for an upgrade?
A question for the FF shooters that keep telling us to move up to FF. Do you shoot a supertelephoto + an extender? If I shot weddings and events there is no way I would have bought a second 7D rather than a 5D2 but I don't. At times I really need a 1120mm FOV (500mm x 1.4 x 1.6).
Perhaps I should buy a 1D4 before they are all gone, that way I would have f/8 AF with the lower crop. With what I have invested in white lenses and the nearly 2X increase in the prices of the Mark II superteles there is no way I could switch to the dark side.
