In some ways the new MK II will be an improoved DSLR in video (with some more FPS..)
Just save cash and get 7D MK I. (IMHO!)

Any featured lenses? some kind of 17-55 F2.8 MK II?

If true, is it me or is the Canon camera lineup getting confused? Used to be that upgrades were real upgrades, and you'd upgrade to get better features for a similar price as you originally paid. Now you're getting more, but paying more, and the difference between the bodies is getting smaller.  :o

Not quite.

Have a look at Thom Hogan's article entitled 'The Last Camera Syndrome'. We are getting there, if not there already.

I'm talking about me personally - I'd love to upgrade, I like to get the latest features and have the money to do it, but Canon just isn't giving me a reason to do it. A high megapixel body would do it though.

On "The Last Camera" yes DSLR's are past the point where you need to continually upgrade I believe. The 5DIII has great metering, great autofocus, great IQ etc. Even the 5DII with it's poor autofocus system is good enough to last me another five years easy. This is why I think Canon needs some big features like new sensor tech to lure us back.

A while back a Canon rep said "users need better pixels, not more pixels". Seems like Nikon is taking them up on that one. And besides they didn't really give us better pixels.

it looks like what the 6d should have been but with a ff sensor.  so annoying.

will this be better than the 6d?

No that's the wrong way of looking at it.
The 6D is pitched as an 'entry level' or first time FF body.
The 7D line is the 'high end' Crop body.


i had a FF body when i was 10, twenty years ago. it was a film camera.

sorry, what point are you making?
the point i'm making is that two of Canon's 'ranges' are Crop bodies and Full Frame bodies and that both ranges have entry level bodies through to high end/top of the range bodies.

"What the 6d should have been" are we
Somehow missing the fact that the 6d is full frame and the better FF is called 5d3 and the better 5d3 is called 1d X.

The 7d mk2 is a fast camera with advanced AF, sits
Between the 5d3 and the 1dx like the original 7d did between the mk4 and the 5d2.

I would live to see a aps-c with the 61 o

If this camera was a full frame, wouldn't it basically be a 5DIII(or 1DX for that matter?)
yes, i think it will be better than the 6D.
This camera sounds awesome. I hope these specs are spot on because i'd love to see a monster 7DII. It just seems cool. This is coming from a person who has almost no interest in buying any more APS-C bodies(unless they are tiny(EOS-M size) and dirt cheap.

The only complaint I ever heard from a 7D user was about their sensor. Now they get near 5D3 ISO ability. That is great! They also get a 25% bump in FPS, wifi, gps, upgraded AF system and a few other goodies like video features.

And who are these people complaining that this should have been the 5D3 or 6D? 10 FPS on a FF body is called the 1Dx.

I'm not even sure why I bother with the forum on this site.

agree.

If these specs are real, I find this an impressive upgrade. As I own the 7D (which I love) - the increase in ISO performance (close to the 5DmkIII) is a particularly attractive feature for me. 61 AF pts and 10 FPS are definitely great, but not essential (I'm quite happy with the 7D's current 19 AF pts and 8 FPS).   ;)

WiFi and GPS are 'nice' but not necessary for my use. Even less important for me are the 'lots of video' features and the dual memory card slots (please keep it CF, I have some great CF cards I want to keep using - plus same battery please while we're at it!)

The 24.1 MP is interesting.. if it has sharp per pixel definition and also has low noise across the ISO range (particularly @ ISO100 & ISO200 for landscapes) I'll be particularly happy!  I do like to crop in various photos, especially for some wildlife.

Cheers! Let's see if this becomes a CR3 and then reality....!! Hope so....  8)

I'm not a brand-fanatic. What I do appreciate is using my 7D and 350D cameras along with a host of lenses & many accessories to capture quality photos, and share with friends.

The spec list make the 5D3 look "inferior"…other than the sensor…
And this makes the 6D look pointless..
Isn't the smaller the number the higher end the camera?
These are features that should've been in their flagship FF cameras from day 1.

Compare the 7D and 5DmkII

I would like to know if the 7D mk II will be the same size of the current 7D...which I use it in a water housing...housings are as expensive as cameras...so it will be great if it is teh same size...any clues?
thanks...

Looks great but I highly doubt it will come close to noise wise to a FF sensor especially with 6 more MP.

If thats what your hoping for then I think you will be disappointed. An APC camera will always have more noise than a full frame sensor.

If your wanting a super fast camera (Like most seem to) and cant afford a 1D series camera then this will fly off the shelves. Sounds like a terrific upgrade from the 7D, although like said my biggest problem with it was 100-400iso so if thats improved would be a very solid second body.

I knew there was a reason I kept my 17-55mm ;)

Indeed, that's the thing... It's all still speculation of course but the key thing is the 'ISO performance close to the 5D mkIII'. Being that it's not a full frame sensor, how close is close?!

I agree with almost all of this- my paranoid side would be pretty happy with Dual CF slots, or at least CF+SD, because my paranoid side always likes to have a mirrored backup in case one card fails. ;-)

I agree with Paul, I have a 7D and 50D, I will be looking for noise reduction and ISO performance.

I do not care about built in flash, finally got a SpeedLite flash, and kicking myself for waiting so long. GPS would be cool, but I love the speed of the 7D, I love the body feel of the 7D as well. With that said, I was allowed to play with a 6D and it felt REALLY nice, and I love the controls of the  6D.

But physics, are well, pretty much set in stone.

Crop sensors will always have a smaller surface area for each pixel; but allow for less expensive lens.

I like saving the money on the lens, my 2 favorite lens are both EF-S, saving something like $2000 in glass.

If the ISO/noise performance is there, I may very well add a third body to my camera drawer. (after the prices and supply settle, of course)

I really like the 7D, though I do confess that since I've gotten the 5D3, the 7D has seen very little use.

A high-density sensor like a 24 mpx APS-C, with much-improved noise performance and DR, would be a great improvement IMHO. Give it f/8 AF and it would be a great birder's camera body.
