These optics, 24 mm f1.4...I'd think about it.

It is funny how people are so concerned with image quality... I get it... at least, I used to. But I used the Canon 40D then 7D for wedding photography for over six years. In that time, I was nominated and voted into the top 4 wedding photographers in a large market city twice. I normally only used primes to compensate for the lack of high ISO performance and depth of field from the crop bodies (they are sharper anyhow). For these reasons, I have far less $$$$ wrapped up in equipment than any of my colleagues. There will always be something newer and better, but the image quality achievable from the 7D mark I is awesome, even on large prints (e.g. 36x48). Anything Canon releases moving forward will only be icing on the cake!!!
Actually, the 6D and 7D2 should be a pretty excellent combo!
For photographers who want a cost effective crop camera there is the 70D. I am wishing for a 'mini 1dx'. Will be perfect second camera along with my 1dx for 'good light' wildlife work. And I hope the 7d2 has better IQ than version I starting from ISO 100 itself to 1600. Hope......Yep, this is the basis for my earlier comment that I am worried that $2k isn't a high enough price to make the 7DII "professional level"....really, I was thinking "mini-1DX."
...I have all I need to own. Has anyone else "completed" their lens kit?
People that are satisfied taking pictures with there phones most likely never where in the DSLR market to begin with.=1
Thats just the social pic snappers people that like good quality pics will always want a DSLR but hey its recession/crisis. My free spendable income keeps going down as insurancen, Food and everything keeps going up in price and my income isnt going up.
so i simply do not have money for thoustant dollar bodys and multi thousant dollar lenses.
The last generation canon lensen have had some seriously absurd price gains which most normal non professionals simply can no longer afford.
Like the 70-200 F2.8 IS that lens wwas 1350 euro the new IS II is a whopping 50% more expencive at 2086 euro.
The same happend with all other new lenses so canon just like any other greedy company in this time of recession is doing this to itself.
A normal wise company would lower prices which upps sales and helps the economu but for some reason in this crisis all companys seem to upp prices which lower sales and then bitch about it.
The greed has gone to there heads.
We the consumers dont have the money for your insane prices anymore ajust to it or see your sales drop even more.
