On Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review preview (1167 comments in total)

This review keeps getting bumped to the top of the "news" list. Maybe the moderators are hoping for 1,000 posts of hate & envy?

Tilted Plane: A pretty careful avoidance of Nikon (or Sony) comparisons, overall. Too bad. Head-to-head comparisons are really (!) helpful. Does this hold up next to a D750? Or even the D610? Or the similarly priced A7II? If so, when, where, under what shooting conditions?

Thanks for the prompt reply, Rishi, I knew you couldn't answer my question.

Then tell us, Rishi, in your grand wisdom, which AF systems have been proven better than this one(at a similar price point)? Don't just say "incorrect" and run away...

Joe Ogiba: Maybe the 7D Mark III will have 15fps and 4K like the Samsung NX1 by 2020.

RAW: No need for a 300mm...I shoot people. Canon is the best for that, IMO.

AngryCorgi: As usual, Canon puts out another camera that get's spanked by a 4-year-old Nikon in the IQ department. When will they think about either (a) purchasing Sony's sensors or (b) partnering with Sony in some way to improve their sensors to be competitive with what Sony has been producing for more than half a decade??

If I spent all my time changing mounts to follow the latest in sensor tech, I wouldn't have any time to work on what's really important: Improving my photography skills.

Joe Ogiba: Soft video lacks detail
iTR struggles to track fast moving subjects
Long screen blackout during live view shooting
No AF with continuous shooting in live view
No zebras to evaluate exposure
No focus peaking
No touch screen
No Wi-Fi
and no 4K.
Way to go Canon, the NX1 is going to eat your lunch.

Hey Joe, do you actually take pictures with the 'latest technology', or do you just yap about it all day online? Would love to see your photo collection.

You Canon haters are so adorable...

I wouldn't compare the entire camera, then...maybe just the AF system, which appears better than any full frame camera I've seen to date.

I guess you and I have different interpretations of "decent".

Maybe Samsung will have a decent lens selection by 2020...

Are you speaking ironically? Why compare a crop sensor to full frame?

No wi-fi in this very modern camera. I'm terribly vexed.

Nice to see the 5DIII still in the top ten, even after a couple years on the market.

I'm great at borrowing things...not so great at returning them.

Karl Summers: No EXIF data?

Sorry you missed my joke. Still, it would be interesting to know what kind of equipment was used, ie focal length, exposure time, etc...

I like the knurled design, the only thing B+W would need to do to their own filters to make them perfect...sometimes my xs-pro is hard to grip.
