Objectivity is the key here. There has been a lot of press about the 7D II; both good and bad. Interesting video as I always like to look at pro work. Back to reality. I always like to look at what my Canon 7D/5D III friends are shooting and D800/D810 users are doing. (sorry dont know Sony people) I dug back into the archives for some D300 images from 2009. The 7D II images are very similar. The noise is similar to original film grain when you crank the ISO. Very nice look; but not what I am expecting in 2014. I love my Canon, Nikon and Panasonic bodies but this Canon does not cut the mustard. If Canon were to outsource the sensor they would have a home run/grand slam camera.
We Canadians buy Data Color products. They should open it up to all; except where prohibited by law.
