So in the last two years Canon comes out with touchscreens, WiFi controls, and Dual-pixel technology.... and at the same time they say that the 7D2 will be revolutionary.... that's got to mean something more than a slightly better 70D. What if the 7D2 is mirrorless and they are still trying to get the EVF up to snuff... or some equally impressive jump in technology? What if they are alternating vertical and horizontal on the dual-pixels and haven't got it quite right yet... What if they are ISO splitting the dual pixels for increased DR....
I am much happier waiting for a true jump in features in a 7D2 than having one rushed to market with laughable "upgrades".... like going from a T4i to a T5i with a mode dial that spins all the way around... I'm sure they could introduce a 7D2 now that was barely better than a 70D, but I am patient enough to wait for a real upgrade.
This! Yes, I'm very happy with my 7D - and find the more I use it (even after tens of thousands of photos) - the more skilled I become (yet I can still improve in areas too).
I saw Canon's recent release of the 70D as very promising for the 7DmkII - a real upgrade (as the 70D was to the 60D).
Don, I can't recall reading that Canon
has stated the 7DmkII will be 'revolutionary' (but if you can source a publication from them, please do share!)
Exciting times ahead... I'd be happy with improved IQ, improved AF, maybe a mirrorless (still compatible with EF-S lenses, though). Enjoy photography folks!
