Canon 7D Mark II Info? [CR2]
« on: May 14, 2012, 03:58:18 PM »
Random Tidbits
A few randon things came in that go against some of things we’ve heard about the 7D replacement.

Two bits of info say an APS-C camera capable of 10fps is in testing, the same camera also has a variation of the 61pt AF system found in the 5D Mark III and 1D X. No mention of megapixels or any other features of the prototype.

If they announce such a camera this September at Photokina with 61 point AF, dual card slots, 10fps with usable ISO up to 3200 and even left the 18MP sensor and priced it under 1600 euros ($2000), I'd sell my 7D and buy it.

With those specs I can see a lot of pro sports photographers snapping it up as a second body or even as a main. How many of them can you get for the price of a 1DX.

Sounds like a reasonable upgrade that's not pie-in-the-sky. Using features already in other new Canon DSLRs.

EF: 500 f/4L IS, 100-400 L IS, 70-200 f/4L IS, 28-135 IS, 1.4x TC II, EF-S: 15-85 IS, 10-22

After using 5D III, I properly will not go back to crop sensor anytime soon. ;)

Body: 5D III(x2) -- A7r
Zoom: 16-35L II -- 24-70L II -- 70-200L f2.8 IS II
Prime: 40mm -- 50L -- 85L II -- 135L -- 400L f2.8 IS II -- Zeiss FE 55mm f1.8

Sounds like a solid update, one that would tempt me to get, more for the AF than the rate.

MP count wise, you have to wonder if they're going to jump up to catch Sony/Nikon, or are they going to follow the 5D series lead and have a minor bump to say 19MP? Keeping the MP down would help keep the fps up, and take some pressure off whatever size buffer they put in.

If this happens then finally things are looking up for those who need more reach than the disappointment of other recent high end bodies.

BEST.  NEWS.  EVER!


I've been waiting for hints of the MkII and this sounds like a logical progression to the original.  No vast leaps in tech, but then I wouldn't expect that really.  Hopefully we'll be hearing more about it soon, keep the good news rolling CRGuy!

I hope not... so far from what i've seen, 24mp on crops are over and beyond what they can handle... heck i think the 18mp for crop has reached it's pinnacle in performance for crop...  Would love to see them perfect the 18mp... maybe even get 104K iso with it?  maybe more DR? 
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.

I already bought a 5D3 to replace my 5D. The 7D2 could be the perfect replacement for my 40D.

Would it really be $1500-$1700 less than the 5D3 if it's very similar to the 5D3 but with a crop sensor instead of the full-frame sensor in the 5D3?   I assume the metering will be the same, and the AF system will probably be similar or the same (perhaps fewer cross-type points?), but the 7D2 sounds like it'll have higher fps continuous shooting.  Given Canon's recent pricing strategy, I'd be surprised to see it for less than $2500.

fingers crossed for 27mp aps-h with 18mp APS-C crop mode :P

and maybe 8fps in APS-H 10fps in APS-C

This sounds like my replacement body for shooting action when my overworked Mk4 gets retired. With the prospect of losing the x1.3 crop on the APS-H sensor Mk4, which gives my 300 f/2.8 an effective 390mm f/2.8 I was looking at the $10k 400 f/2.8 as a necessary purchase to maintain my accustomed reach on a FF 1DX.

Even if I wore out a 7DII every 12 months it's making good practical & business sense. Just so long as it ships with a grip! (see 5D3 grip blues....)

How much? I bet it will be $2500! Too expensive IMO vs. other alternatives out here!
