As a value proposition, it looks like the T7i/800D is the best value camera ever made.
I specifically like the battery life ratings over the 750D, it looks like Canon got a lot of the kinks worked out.
The T7i/800D should be one of the best workhorse Rebels to come out in a long time, especially once the price drops a hundred dollars or so.

The 77D is just too close to the price of the 80D for me to think it's actually worth the premium.
At the same time, the features of the 80D are too close to the T7i/800D as well, hopefully in 2018/2019 the 90D will have more to differentiate itself (like Dual Card Slots for a start).

The 6D2 is probably going to be even more popular than the original 6D, I would just need to figure out how to justify using a $2,600 (Canadian) body when my most expensive lens is only half that, and as far as wildlife goes the new Rebels give me pretty much everything I could want (minus Dual Card Slots).

Definetly 6D mark 2! But with some ovious specs: 4k at 500mbps in motion jpeg format/CFast cards.
6D Mark II with CFast Card?
No way.

I agree. I do not see why everyone these days is so hung up still on CFast cards..  SanDisk ExtremePro and Samsung Pro+ cards are more then fast enough for 4k video and anything photo related a DSLR can throw at it. Heck even Hasselblad only has SD slots in their new 50MP MF X1D. If anything CFast is a turn off for me.


I voted for the 6D2.. Despite it not being out yet.  But if I had the option to vote for something that has been announced it would be the new bluetooth remote BR-E1.. I just dislike IR ones.. LOL..

+1 about the remotes. I want to stand behind the camera not have to lean over it to get line of sight. I guess smartphone works like that but I prefer a physical button and less time mucking around with apps and phones.
Dude, I have been using the Yongnuo MC-36R Wireless Timer Remote for may cameras for years. $35 on ebay and is better and more reliable than the umbilical chord (non wireless) version that Canon offers for $160. And it works from about 100 metres away from any direction. But, if you want to control 2 cameras at a time, plug one in without the wireless function.
For Astro, beer in one hand, remote in the other changing shutter times and number of shots without even getting out of your chair. Good for time-lapse because you don't have to touch anything attached to your camera.

Thanks for the tip! I might get one of those for my 6D but that won't solve the issue of IR with the EOS M. As far as I know there is no input for a wired remote on the M's. (Do the newer ones have it?)
Move along nothing to see here!

<p>Canon has been pretty busy with announcements so far in 2017, We’re only 6 weeks in and already we’ve seen 4 notable cameras announced. We expect the lenses to be coming over the next few months. We believe the next lens will be an EF-S prime, which we’re still trying to get more information on. Also, don’t forget we’re going to see an <a href="http://www.canonrumors.com/canon-ef-85mm-f1-4l-is-usm-on-the-way-cr3/">EF 85mm f/1.4L IS some time in 2017</a>.</p>
<p>You can vote below for your favourite product of 2017.</p>

I understand the intention of the OP, but as I don't see any "need" for gear acquisition for the moment,
I would say it's the 6D in my hands, along with the Sigma 20 1.4 Art...

Things could change once Canon announces the 6DII,
with 24 MP and a substantial improvement in high ISO above 12.8-51.2 k.
Based on that I could envision a probable purchase sometime mid-2018.

If the 6D II comes out w/ DPAF and more autofocus points, I think it would sell like hotcakes. I think Canon is holding out so that folks who can't wait will either opt of the 5DIV, M5, 80D, or some other option.

So far,...The Canon 2017 announcements are putting me to sleep.  Sure will be exciting if Canon drops a really interesting product this year that shakes up the Camera Body scene.

"I couldn't care less about.." = this is the bottom of my list.. it is so unimportant.
