Katie Piecrust: Hmm... does one choose a top of the line crop camera or a bottom of the line full frame? I think my preference is still going to be an updated 7D so long as they keep everything currently great about it, like the 100% viewfinder coverage. Adding that -3 EV and built in wi-fi would be a good start. I wonder if Canon will announce any other new cameras or if this is the last one for the year.

I also wonder if Canon is planning on eventually retiring the 1.6x crop factor sensor for good, perhaps only keeping it in their Rebels for a spell while the rest of their line goes FF. Certainly they can only take crop sensors so far before they have no choice but to increase the sensor area. Would certainly shake up the field, that's for sure. I suppose 1.3x crop could also be a possibility down the road, something Canon has played with before.

I agree with Gothmoth, everything on 7D is good except the sensor ...the banding noise on 7D is simply horrible and unacceptable ...

Jancc: Who cares about wifi control/geo tagging etc if Canon fits another bad sensor into the camera... in case you don't aware of it, almost all of their current DSLR lineup suffer from the banding noise issue (5Dm2/7D/60D/600D/550D, not sure about the 5Dm3 though).

Hope they've fixed the problem in this model ...

or download a sample raw file shot with low iso at a high contrast scene from (5d2/7d/600d etc), load it up in ACR or LR, push to the 'fill light' bar to 100, and you'll see the banding noise in those shadows. Also repeat this process with a Nikon raw (D5100 or D7K), then you can tell how bad canon's performance is ...
