My idea for what the 7DII should be
Mar 25, 2012

In my opinion, the 7DII should just be a 5DIII with a smaller sensor (and the stuff that goes with it - viewfinder, mirror, etc.). This would mean the same pixel count, the same sensor technology, maximum native ISO reduced to 12,800, maximum extended ISO reduced to 51,200, and the same AF system.

With that, they should add video crop modes for each video size (the 5DIII should have these too), f/8 AF sensors in the center, and a popup flash.

And that that would be the 7DII - $2,000.

I've been using a 20D and it's bigger brother the 5D side-by-side for years and I love having two formats in what are nearly identical cameras with near identical user interfaces and controls. It's an effective combo for me.
