I ordered through Adorama. They had the Canon release date of Nov 28 when I ordered. I check a few days ago and now they say just November 2014.

When Ken Rockwell shoots, he turns Chuck Norris into a pixelated low-res statue with oversaturated colours.
When Chuck Norris kicks Ken Rockwell... Nah, he wouldn't even bother. He's not worth it.
When The Most Interesting Man In The World hikes, with ease and without even breaking a sweat, through 30 miles of rough Amazonian terrain and comes across a glorious sight under the most magnificent sunset that the world has ever seen and pulls out his DSLR.... the landscape asks to take HIS picture instead. And the picture is the better for it.
Looks pretty good. Very interesting lens....
I flipped through the AF guide the other day, and people need to start really seeing how much awesomeness that has trickled down from the 1dX, plus new features. This camera is a sports/bif dream if you ask me. Superb AF coverage, must be the best coverage ever? And all the tuning you can to to the AF in the same way as the 1dX will open a brand new world for people not in the 1d market. I would be over the moon excited if I wasn't in the 1d crowd, and even now I can't wait to have a go.
And the anti-flickering mode for fluorecent light? Are you kidding me? That is a game changer...
It is going to be as huge as the original 7d.
-And buyers, PLEASE do read the AF guide and really understand how to make use of the AF system, because if you don't, you will miss out BIG TIME...
I saw the 7d2 also now can assign different AF settings to the AF-ON button and the *-button, and that is probably my most favorite feature of the 1dX.
Yes, I do realize this thread is about IQ and noise, but that shouldn't be the main reason to buy or not but the 7d2. But you take a fantastic shot with perfect focus in a ridicolous fast pace situation and that epic moment, or would you like a miss focused shot that is superclean with 14 stops of DR? Then buy another camera.
It's got the functions, but that is it. The AF module on the 1Dx and 5DII are light years ahead of the 7D II.
Geeesh. This focus guide alone is going to keep me busy for ages. Lots to learn before November!
Everyone (including myself) seems to be searching the internet for reviews on the new 7D2. It looks like an impressive camera, kind of like how the 7D looked impressive back in 2009 when it was first introduced.
Well, I find myself wanting a new 7D2, but... my now 3 year old 7D still works perfectly and still takes amazing photos... What's my point?
My point is, I will probably upgrade to the 7D2 eventually, but not today. I love my 7D and it still does today what it has always done for me, take fantastic photos. It's still lighting fast and I love the image quality, even at high ISO's. No it's not a low light camera and it was never designed to be, but with a little post-processing images even taken at ISO 3200 are very nice, especially when they are of a hummingbird's wings frozen in time...
I am forcing myself to remember that it is the photographer that makes the photo, not his or her equipment. Yes tools give a workman more options BUT any camera in the hands of a skilled workman (or woman) is an amazing thing. You can capture a moment in time and share it with your friends, family and even make a living doing so.
I love my 7D. I don't see me getting rid of it anytime soon.
