It's a little more expensive than I thougth.

Unlike most other electronics, cameras don't decrease in price and I never expect them to.  :(

Canon has trained you well... =)

They've trained all of us because they are still in business!

I paid 910.10 for a 50D body in May of 2009 so all things considered if the body only is around 1100 it is not far out of what the 50D was as a new release

I'm not denying that haha.  Looking strongly at this camera as a good backup...  not thrilled about only 12k max iso tho...

Does anyone know what time the press release will happen? It's 7:48am in Japan right now.  I'm assuming that is where the press conference/release will originate?

You realize that there doesn't appear to be much if any sensor improvement.  Lately Canon claims at least a 1 stop performance increase based on going to the next DIGI processor.  They are moving from the DIGIC 4 used in the 60D and 7D to the DIGIC 5+.  It looks to me like Canon is just packing a couple more MP and then using the DIGIC 5+ to clean up the JPEGs.  It won't help the RAW performance at all (other than maybe some minor tweaks to the sensor itself)...

I sincerely hope not. The 7D sensor is really quite below par when compared to modern crops from competition (hello, Sony). While I generally like my 7D, I cringe when I need to take pics in bad light...

so you had a look at the 70D already...   ::)

I'm also curious as to what time the press release might be.

I hope the 'Body only' price tag won't  be as high as the one with an STM lens. And that release date, hoping for it to be release in the same month, or early August. *fingers crossed*

Ouch.


I had hoped the 7D2 would be well south of 2K, but I cannot imagine that it will be now with that 70D pricing.  I suppose time will tell, but it is looking more like I will sell my EF-S glass and go with a 5D3.

This is damn expensive. Specs or close to D7100 which costs $1200. How long do you guys think it will take for the price to come down to $1100-$1300? And i think now we can safely assume the 7dII, if it is coming, will be over $2k, maybe even $2.5k.

Modify; i realize now that the price is with the lens. Body only may be around $1200-1300

That seems to be quite a good deal if you go body only. Assuming you have lenses.
Cleaner ISO
20mp
7fps
with 1.6x reach Thats adds up to be a pretty good investment for a secondary sports/action camera or
a good qualifier for video with its focus system(if you have stm lens) and movable screen(i do miss that on my 60d)
I see the 7dii as having 5dm3 focus with higher megapixel, apsc, 12800 iso, an 7+fps. @$1700+ body only
i dont see why all the griping, you all want crazy upgrade for a cheaper price. I am pretty content with Canons path.
The only market i dont see them really moving in on is digital rangefinder/ equally priced 4k video(blackmagic)
