I would like to see Vulcanized rubber used on the grip.

That would be logical.  :)

I wish there was a way to add a improved scratch proof screen.  I would say the 7D3 needs a cover but if they get a FLippy then that is not the answer.

The stuff they use for high end smartphones now is pretty scratch resistant, and it's not like you have to worry about shatter -- if something is going to shatter your DSLR screen (like dropping it onto a hard surface), worse things will happen than screen shatter.

2. Spot metering linked to AF points.

Already present on the 80D, so it would be very surprising if it was omitted on the 7D3.

Hi Grekko,

I have a very bad habit of forgetting about posts I've comented on and I forget to come back to them hence the late reply!

The original post (not by you) that I replyed to was specifically talking about Spot metering linked to AF points.
I don't think the 80D or 7D2 has that from the table (I don't have a either so happy to be corrected!)

What I didn't realise was that metering is linked in other modes though, really cool and as you say that functionality won't go back the way!

Regards

  • How you relate to the issue, is the issue.

One thing I would like to see, is an improvement in the battery holder in the vertical grip.  The old ones were great, the new one feels like cheap plastic.

I totally don't get the anti-AA filter fetish -- I'd much rather have microscopic softness than moiré. 


Yeah, I'm with you.  Moiré will totally ruin a shot; softness you'll never see, won't.  Plus, post-processing sharpening will completely eliminate the softness 99.999% of the time, and provide an acceptable result to most human beings 100% of the time; but if you get hit with moiré on something that matters, that you don't catch in the moment, you're screwed.

Plus, very few people really need 20+ megapixel files in the finished product.  Once you reduce it, any softness will be gone, but you'll still be stuck with moiré.

If you have access to the RAW files you should be able to correct for that anyway through pre-debeyering softening. AA filters were only really necessary in the pre-RAW era, and having them in the camera now takes way options you might otherwise have.

I have taken tens of thousands of shots with my 5DSR of birds and have had only a handful of them being spoiled by Moire (and not really spoiled, just a slight amount that is only noticeable on high enlargement that you do don't see in small prints). I have had similar Moire from my 5DIV. I have had great shots from my 7DII. The 5DSR crops are simply sharper.

As for: " Plus, post-processing sharpening will completely eliminate the softness 99.999% of the time, and provide an acceptable result to most human beings 100% of the time".  Sharpening increases acutance, apparent sharpness; it doesn't restore details that are lost by softness, ie get back the lost resolution because of blurring by the AA-filter.
