It makes me feel angry and betrayed. Just kidding. In reality it makes me wonder if I want to go back to crop. If it turns out to be a mini 1D X with decent IQ at ISO 3200 and below, I might have to give it a try. I liked the 7D a lot, but the performance at ISO 1600+ just didn't do it for me.
+1. The spec tells you nothing about the IQ at ISO 1600. Need a review to see if it has improved to a useable level.
We have no idea what the low light capabilities are. ISO limits are not reflective of noise levels.
My guess is: one stop improvement over the 7D will see many folks get angry (it's been five years!), two stops will have them say "ok, it's an improvement" and three will have them jumping for joy.
My friend is a diehard 7D user who wants the 7D2 ISO 3200 shots to be as clean as his ISO 800 shots are today. That's a reasonable expectation to me.
