Well... I think this camera sounds fine! It isn't too spiffy, and it isn't a PoS either. Now all we have to do is wait for the "shake down" to see what manufacturing problems crop up.
This is on my short list anyway... So many choices, so little money.
Exactly. People need to see this for what it is. And what it is is a modest update and upgrade from the 5DII introduced at several hundred dollars below what the 5DII sold for as recently as a year ago.
Canon also left plenty of room for a 7DII, so this pretty much confirms to me we'll see a spiffy 7DII in 2013. Big decision for me will be which to choose. Just depends on how much they improve the 7DII sensor and how the 6D sensor and autofocus perform.
Frankly Canon has me exactly where they want me. 7D owner looking for a second body: do I go with the 6D or the 7DII. They figure I'll choose one within the next year and then add the other in another year. They are probably right. Damn them.
