Re: more images of the 7D mark II

I wonder what that switch around the joystick is supposed to do... But I am very pleased with the button layout, looks great, just like the 5DIII. The wheel looks a bit funny though with these direction markings, but I don't care about that. :) I don't know if we had this before, will it use the same battery as the old 7D? :)

It's a new battery version with longer charge life, but the old batteries will still be compatible... (Supposedly)

Could be some sort of AF selection or AF mode selection shortcut. One shot > Servo. Or Single point > Zone. We'll see about that quite soon I guess :)

My hunch is a way to switch between different AF point modes. Single point, expansion, full 65 pt AF...

Re: more images of the 7D mark II

I'm wondering how battery grips are going to look/fit with the significant curvature in the base design. Maybe a shorter grip that's not the full length of the camera or extra material to fill the gap?...

Re: more images of the 7D mark II

I imagine Wi-Fi will be available in a “Battery Grip” for those that want it. It will be interesting to see any new controls that may be on the grip like a separate window for Wi-Fi information?

I bet that's the case. However, I hope Canon doesn't do something dumb like requiring a button press before moving the lever (or if they do, if can be turned off like the need to press the Af point button before moving the AF point with the joystick).

I'm really torn. One group that I talk to is saying that the 70D was only a marginal upgrade over the T2i (that I currently use). They're also saying the 7Dii is going to probably only be a marginal upgrade as well. I bought the T2i years ago when I was first learning how to shoot. But there's a lot of people on this forum saying the image quality would be massively improved over the T2i if I switched to the ii.

I'm photographing mainly wildlife, about 85% of what I photograph is birds, smallish ones. In actuality I'm only using the center focus point probably 90% of the time as well, since I'm good at getting in the range of my 400mm, and it's close enough that the center point covers most of the bird.

May skip the ii, and maybe go to a 5diii or 6d or something, since I'm not hurting for reach in the least.

Maybe you spend a little bit of time and wait until Spring/Summer 2015. There are unspecific rumors that the MkIV Version od the 5D will apear.

The truth is usually somewhere in the middle. You will see an improvement in image quality with the 70D, it will definitely be noticeable, but it will not be earthshaking.... but the user interface is drastically different and according to those who have gotten used to it, much better.

As far as AF goes, yes, the 70D has far better autofocus, but if you just use the center point you will miss most of the advantages. What you will see is that the AF on that center point is more accurate and of course, if you go into live view, the DPAF is a huge improvement..

As far as the 7D2, nobody knows..... until people get their hands on it, you are just hearing guesses and opinions based on rumours and startlingly devoid of facts.

Did you also note the little "H" which is attached to the continuous shooting icon in the display? I guess it denotes the High Speed continuous shooting mode like it does on the 5DIII. Hopefully it also has a "S" like silent continuous shooting mode too!

It also seems to come with CF + SD cards as the little card symbols in the display imply.

I'm in. It looks like it will outperform or matches the 5 year old 1D Mark IV in most categories except possibly very high ISO
