I don't like those options at all.

ISO 6400 is not really usable on 5D3, so on 7D2? Not gonna happen... I guess this comes down to the definition of "usable". My shooting style is to avoid high ISOs especially when it's dark.

Then the slow burst rate combined with the higher mega pickles... What's the point? Well, if it's a macro only camera then yeah, I'd go with this options just to get more room for additional cropping.


Megapickles? ROFL. Best typo ever.

Why do you say 5d3 not usable at 6400...there's been some truly awesome example online at even 12800 (or am i thinking the 6d?)

?
I've had no issues with my 5d mkIII shooting very usable images at iso 6400 and highter...

After seeing the specs on the new 70D, there seems to be mounting hope that the 7D MkII is going to be an awesome upgrade from the first 7d version... I think it's so!

Wide range ISO, great sensor performance, dual card slots (CF, SD who cares?), FPS - again, who cares? If you're into sports it matters…for the rest of us, it's image quality, not FPS. Until Canon delivers a camera worth ditching my 30D (or 10S film camera for that matter), I'm staying put. CANON, make me proud! Give me something worth trading up for!

What type of toggle with this have?  Do you think it will go back to the joystick of the 50D and 5D MkIII?  Or will it be the pad in the 60D and 6D?

I bet the joystick will be there. It will have AF 19 points at least so omitting it would cripple the AF somehow...

If you care about image quality that much, then you shouldn't look at crop sensor cameras.

I like mega pickles too...but as to the best typo, go check the 70d spec topic...feature number 3!

the OP edited the typo out, but it is preserved via insert quote  ;D

My 2cents for 7D II:

1. 1D X AF system
2. 10fps
3. Solid body, similiar to 5D III
3. wife etc
4. ISO same as rumor 70D or a bit better
5. Sensor technology same as 1D X  or 5D III - crop size with Dual DIGIC 5+ Image Processors
6. More poweful battery

Wow, that's quite a feature...   ;D

I like your specs but I believe not all are realistic.

20.2 CMOS YES
Dual Digic 5+  YES
14 fps NO 10fps probably (just like 7D fps rate was less than 1D4's)
Dual CF Cards NO either one or 1CF and 1SD (it will not equal 1DX)

Still, nice specs...

Will this "feature" be the same in all continents or they will be variations depending whether the model is sold, like Japan, EU or USA?    ;D  ;D  ;D

So far the 7DII is vapor ware.....  :'(  I personally do not see it ever making it to market. Hope I am wrong. We will see. But I aint waiting on it anymore for sure. The next really good crop camera that comes along and I am shelving the Canon gear.

Why not?  I think Don Haines mentioned that even Canon said the 7D MkII would be a "game changer"?
