Heh, I like that the first option starts at "$0". :D I wonder if a better range might have been $500-$1499 or something like that.

No, $0 makes sense.  After all, if Canon doesn't improve the DR of the 7DII sensor, they won't even be able to give them away...   ::)

I was one of the early adopters of the 7D, paying $2300 AUD for it (with Canon spare battery and 16GB CF card, plus warranty). I have not looked back since, though - worth every cent.

When the 7DmkII comes out, if it has following features, I'll happily pay around same price ($2300 AUD) for the body only:
 - cleaner sensor (at both low ISO and high ISO)
 - improved frame rate - to 10fps
 - improved AF (more points, slightly better accuracy, speed is good)
 - the new dual pixel live view AF / video AF
 - lower banding
 - somewhat more DR (if possible)

Above I wrote "when... released" - I realise I could have written "if... released" but I'm hoping it's a when... and soon!

I'm very happy with the 7D, the only real improvement I'd really like to see is the sensor. Otherwise I'll just buy another 7D!

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.

Well, there goes my argument then!  I didn't realize they sold body only for that much when they first released the 7D.  It was out about 6 months before I bought one... Sorry!

describe the 7dmk2 please, so we know what we are talking about and price
Faster, stronger, and enough DR to make you hang out in Nikon forums mentioning DR every time someone posts about anything.

Or to put it another way, no-one knows. Its all speculation at this point. But I'm hoping for the DR bit, if for no reason other than a bit less shadow noise in this forum.
