Great shots Edward, Dylan and Greatland.

I think that's become a big differentiator for Canon in terms of a pro-looking body, though there are plenty of 1D-series shooters clamoring for a gripless 1D_. It adds a good deal of cost and doesn't make sense to me.I'm pretty skeptical. If this article is correct, the newly designed, gripped version of the 7DII would weigh only two ounces more than the un-gripped 7DI.It sounded good right up until I read that it would have an integrated grip like the 1D X - that's where I called BS.
I have thought that it might be possible Canon would introduce a 7DX with integrated grip and a 7DII without. But, I doubt it.
The feature I'm mighty curious about is the f/8 autofocus capability. If they add that, it will be very interesting.
Thanks Jon, I think you're right on Lincoln's. I don't have more views unfortunately.
agreed!I wonder if this will be the introduction of DPAF to p/s cameras?
Would be nice, but I seriously doubt it.
My biggest hopes for this camera are:
- Dramatically improved EVF optics. The SX50 optics have a major field curvature issue.
- The lens (including IS) is at least as good as that in the SX50 (which is pretty good).
- The video performance gets a good upgrade (better quality, 60p FHD available).
I am amazed at how good the SX-50 is, considering what it does..... Give it a better EVF and make the buttons less sensitive (or better yet, a lockout switch) and you would have a huge lead in the superzoom market.
