Am I good or what? Exactly what I've been predicting for months now. You can expect the 70D to have pretty much the same specs, with an APS-C sensor..
7DII will be essentially the 5DIII with an APS-C sensor. It's all perfectly logical and predictable.
What's with all the whining? Did you really expect to get all the 5DIII features for half the price? If you think Nikon is better, get a Nikon. That's how the marketplace works.
Personally, I like these specs. Plenty of room to differentiate the 70D and this model from the 7DII and the 5DIII.
Yep, yep, yep. "...perfectly logical and predictable" -- when you understand marketing. The marketplace is their sandbox; you step into it, you use the toys they put there. If you like the toys in the other corner better, so be it -- they'll change their toys if it gets too unbalanced. Good to remember they're the only ones who really know where that tipping point is.
The most fascinating thing for me is Canon seems to have drawn a line, somewhere around $2500 USD. Below that is the real "mass market," so to speak. Above it are businesses (who can write off higher priced items) and the overstuffed wallets with more money than brains. Really makes me wonder where they price the 7D2 when it comes out. Makes me think they won't break the barrier, so somewhere around $2499 USD. I hope we get to see sooner rather than later.
Oh, and as for terminating posts and posters, a word to the you know who. There's a strong Judeo-Christian bias in that neighborhood; something as innocuous as the "F" word will get you terminated here in the gentleman's club.
