Another vote for the 15-85. It was a great combo with the 7D.
This is beginning to make me wonder if there will ever be a 7D2.
10 24-105 f/4's for sale, 19 24-70 f/2.8 v1's. Seems significant. Makes sense they are selling off the 24-70's. You think they are just cycling in new 24-105's or they just aren't as popular to rent anymore? They are all rated at or above 7.5 and I don't know their quality control standard.
<p>2014 will be the year for high-end DSLR cameras from Canon, consider this a down year for bodies.</p>
For most, price point will also matter. I know Nikon is typically considered Canon's competition, but in this case, I think Canon's own 5DIII is giving the hypothetical 7DII a lot of competition as the prices get closer. Canon had either get the 7DII specs (or an improved spec, such as DR) closer to the 5DIII if they want to price the 7DII >$2,200 or shoot for the 1 stop improvement and be sub $2,000 with the 7DII.18 MP. 21 MP. 24 MP. Even 15 MP. Frankly, I don't especially care. If it does a full stop or more better in terms of high ISO noise performance for RAW images vs. the 7D, a 7DII will be interesting to me. If not, no interest.
+1. And it better be more .
