AT CANON, WE SEE (that it is) IMPOSSIBLE to improve IQ,DR in our sensor.
fantastic shot.. gentle lighting.. what lens was used?
Entropius: I wonder how the AF compares to the system in the D7100, the closest thing Nikon makes? AF speed and accuracy, more than anything else, is the killer feature for the sort of action work that this thing is designed for.
The original poster clearly wrote his intention : 'AF speed and Accuracy' .Every reply talks about fps.
5 years back, then 7D came, the rest was history. err the "rest" became history.
Nikon D3S had 12MP, their top notch D300s had 10 MP.
7D came with 18MP, superior sensor, superior LCD, superior focus speed, superior buffer, superior everything. Infact is was overwhelming for Canonians and initmidating for Nikon corp. (Nikon corp then played "more MP more evil" song then). I saw lot of photographers using superior 7D in their superior 100-400mm lens 400mm lens which are absent in Nikon. (or you have to pay 10K for their 500mm nikon lens).
Now, 7DII has arrived. It has less MP, inferior sensor, inferior LCD but still superior focus speed, superior buffer.
There is no question if it is Twice better. It is not.
sceptical1: I am a Nikon shooter and I won't lie - I am very envious of this offering as well as the new 400mm lens. First, I prefer DX cameras for wildlife shooting. Unfortunately current DX (except this Canon) cameras are lacking in ways that many users want. There are really 3 big advantages to this offering.1. AF performance. For fast moving wildlife and birds in flight, you want the best possible AF and this Canon is state of the art.2. Low light performance. Much as I like cameras like the D7100, the low light performance does not measure up to professional standards. FX cameras like the Nikon D4s, Nikon 750/810, and Canon 1D series allow you too take pictures earlier in the morning and later in the evening. This Canon brings that type of performance to a DX camera.3. Fast performance. This camera shoots fast enough and has a big enough buffer to make sure you don't miss much. Personally, small buffer cameras don't bother me because of my style of shooting, but many will appreciate it.
//new 400mm lens// where is it? I searched for this, but could not fine.
wassim al malak: peace for all .
PLEASE stop negative complains .let's concentrate on the positives and discuss it , let's evolute our skills , let's enjoy photography , let's enjoy those new cameras and specs .
photography is an art , photogrpher must be at the high-end of the morality and positivity .
it's about depth of feelings
@wassim,Well, you wished peace to everyone and started the conversation. So who has been doing propaganda, that made me to change my mind? please let me know.
naththo: If I were you as a Canon Fan I would buy that 7D MKII over 7D. A huge improvement. I don't understand why some people think it is same as 70D in sensor performance, pffft 7D MKII is a pro camera, 70D is a toy to compare! 7D MKII got dual core processor thats great for sports shooting seriously!
thanks for your comparison and view.
@naththo,are you telling 70D iis a toy? You are insulting Canon, thinking that you are praising 7DmkII . 70D price is THOUSAND dollars. Cannot Canon make any better than a 'toy' for $1000 ?
If you think tough built of 7DMKII is superior, I agree with you, but it is unnecessary burden for people who prefer lighter cameras.
Also people like swivel LCD, which is really convenient. However, people cannot use it for BIF kind of situations, as they need to see through optical view finder.
So overall, when it comes to speed and speed and speed the 7DMKII is worth it. Otherwise 70D is by far much better value.
@wassim,You are correct and just perfect.I understand it is me only.I cannot help 'peace' reminding me of group of men proudly killing innocent people and women covered in long robe watching it.when I was innocent young man, the word 'peace' reminded me the face of Budhdha in meditation, a sun rise in beach. Now things changed.
Is it only me? that feel uncomfortable when the word 'peace' is used?whenever someone says 'peace' I cannot avoid glimpse of killings,fully covered women flashing in my mind.
The wait is not over.
May be this camera will make 70D sales to increase, because people may think waiting is pointless and 70D is better value.
gskolenda: Come on Canon from a video perspective, This is Crap! No Time lapse, No Wifi,No Slo-mo FPS, Limited codecs! I'm still buying a GH4 twice the camera, and 4K to boot! I don't want tohear about who needs 4K, If your thinking that, then you don't understand 4k's benefits!
what are 4K s benefits, when we know it is going to take too much memory in camera and difficult to upload in youtube?
Are there other benefits ? if so, how can i get them when downsizing ?
sir_bazz: Where's the Direct Print button?
Deal breaker right there.
Scorehound,I think sir_bazz is sarcastic.
quiquae: Given that this is a zoom and not a 600mm prime, I wish it had a somewhat shorter MFD. (I know it isn't trivial.)
also tjere raises the question.. what is minimal focusing distance at 600mm, if 230cm were for short end?
So, this is all Canon has for this photokina ? already Canon is lagging behind. OR did I miss any canon announcement news?
bottom line:will retail at $7995.
Branko Collin: If I've learned anything from some of the arm-chair lawyers in this thread, it's that Lensrentals.com must be filthy rich by now because of all the copyrights that automatically devolve to them every time someone takes a photo with rented gear.
I am amazed 5 people liked Branko Collin's comment.
If we extend Branko's logic, all photos are owned by Canon Inc, Nikon inc, Olympus inc etc and the photographer is monkey.
