On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (2602 comments in total)
In reply to:

DVT80111: Tried a 7DII in store the other day. The joystick is not that fast to catch a flying bird. Changing the AF mode still requires to push a button first before I can change the one around the joystick. Not sure 7DII is a huge improvement over my 70D at almost 2X the price. Definitely it won't produce 2X the joys.

Actually I don't see much use for Wifi on a body like 7DII. People who owns the 7DII tends to shoot like machine gun, it would take forever to transfer all the pictures.

But making excuse about all magnesium body is lame. If it is a must have feature, go figure it out. Many smartphones are aluminum too and they figure out how to get the antenna in and out.

Known Member: I really don't like incremental upgrades like this camera. I will be waiting for A9 which is coming out in Feb 2015!

Bring it in. The more they come out, the faster the price will fall and I am for it.

About time Canon but I won't cancel my Tamron 150-600 order.

400mm is no quite long enough for birds.

There is no fun carrying heavy and long lens. Why haven't anyone designed a long tele-lens just for APSC to reduce its size and weight. Most birdly people use APSC camera anyway. Why do we have to pay and carry extra weight just for the lights (2/3 of them) we don't capture?

Regardless of all the technology inside them, all Sony cameras are just toys because there is no ergonomic nor usability consideration in their design.

I have always thought that their first camera is the 7D.

Size matters - RX100 is still the king of professional compact.

cashewNut: Thinking of buying this camera paired with the Tamron 18-200 mm E-mount lens mainly for travel. I don't make a living out of photography but mainly for recreational/hobby. Is this combination any good? Sony also has their own 18-200 mm E-mount, is the Tamron equal if not superior to it? Kindly shoot me with pro or con feedback. Thanks, eh.

with single lens, you are better off with the RX10

Very good camera specs at very good price. I just ordered the Zeiss 2 lens combo for my Fuji X-E1, and at a moment I am thinking to dump the Fuji system and go for A6000.

Just only one thing that hold me back.. the EVF. Sony..why?

Nikon please put on the D600 sensor where it needs the most.

Maverick_: guys before bashing this, keep one thing in mind, the Surface is a very popular product. They do sell. And it's a neat but flawed concept.

I was in the market for an ultrabook, narrowed my choice to a 13.3" Sony Flip, but before buying it Sony sold that division and I decided to look further. Also 13.3 Flip screen is way too heavy to be used as tablet since the keyboard is still attached.

The Surface 2 Pro wasn't even in the running for me, because of the tiny screen size and weight.

So, I decided to look at tablets instead and just when I needed to finalize my purchase Samsung came out with the excellent Galaxy Note Pro 12.2. I got the LTE version on first day of release and have not regretted it.

Surface going to 12" is a good move, but a better move would be 13.3. Windows products don't work as well on small screens. But keep in mind, the thickness/weight of the Surface is its worst enemy.

The future will be phones and tablets and only 1% will use desktops.

Count me in that 1%. Actually I couldn't stop using my wide screen LCD. Thinking to add a 2nd monitor.

I just shot a bunch of pics last night using 70-200/4L handheld on a 70D body. Some pic were at 1/10s, 200mm. All the pictures came out sharp. Amazing. I hope this expensive lens have a chance to compete.

Wow. I am still very happy with my one year old RX100, and Sony ready to ship the 3rd generation.

There is still no competition for the RX100. Now Sony adds a VF feature. Impressed.
