russbarnes: The truth about Canon's lenses and sensor performance will soon be revealed to the world, just as Nikon was laid bare when the D800 was released.
Never heard of video cameras...5D 4 is mainly a still camera with video features..for full video features and pro..you could by. Video camera..
any great rebate while celebrating 25 years?
i am more interested to know about the surf spot in California..Dpreview could you please disclose the surf location in California and which pier ist it..
Old Baldy: As an ex Canon shooter, who learned what little I know about photography, on Canon products (20D, 50D, 5D, etc).....but who has switched to Sony NEX and now A7ii, I am surprised at how little excitement I feel about these new Canons.
It all just feels so....old school....to me, to see these huge, heavy, DSLR bodies with little real benefit for a stills/landscapes/street/travel photographer like me, and some quite significant disadvantages of all that size and mass.
I've no doubt these will be fine products. Just a little bit irrelevant for me, and, I suspect, for many others who have also switched to the smaller form factor of the mirrorless world.
glad you switched to Sony..and still have the time to comments on canon products..your comments are a proof that canon is great and getting a lot of attention
It doesnt matter what sony shows off..sony is good in film and tv video...in photography stil photos. They are not...
Just a Photographer: More resolution at the cost of image sharpness of everything over f8.0 due to diffraction. People will soon find out that the more megapixels doesn't automatically imply more sharpness and detail.
To start learning about physics and the laws of nature and why diffraction kicks in with this camera. Read this:
FYI. The Canon 5Ds sensor pixel density is 4.1uM.
From a canon to nikon switcher...enough said
Is this a new trend? It looks like Canon is producing new cameras for specific kind of photography. Canon 7D II for wildlife birding and sports...the new 5DS for studio and landscape....
Is this really a good idea?
Wow..it was expected canon 5d IV would be released this spring...i guess not after the firmware
GodSpeaks: Who cares?
GodSoeaks..what a name..Amen
Gold Standard Camera propably people thought its made up of Gold..this could explain the disappearance of the king of Flare Nikon D750
is Canon 7D mark 2 made in Japan?
Hey Dpreview..no thanx..try harder next time
its a good camera ..but for my action and birding photography 6.5 framerate is a little to slow..so i prefer Canon 7D II.
but as a FF camera it is for sure very good for landscape and portrait etc
Gesture: Nikon doesn't have to sell the most cameras in the world, just be profitable with what it does best.
very true..and leica boutiques are located in all major photography locations
Would love to pose next to the gold standard Nikon D750
Well..i would say it is an amazing camera with very good overall features and capabilities.. But after 5 years you would expect more technological development and better specification.As the review said.it is an incremental upgrade..
Canon 7D II is the Iphone of the camera world..the more you critisize the more canon cameras are sold.
No wonder its one of the most thought after model
Tharaphita: Great video itself but the 7D2 Video quality doesnt seem to be anything to rave about. Maybe due poor auto AF or Youtube compression? Vimeo is better choice some times, for high quality video.
sure:) no wonder it comes from a Nikon guy...
NJOceanView: This seems like a good solution for those who need APS-C cameras. I'm one of them because I don't need uber-shallow DOF but do need every inch of reach I can get. I also shoot JPEGs much of the time for the kind of work that I do.
That being said, if you look both at the Beatles patch and the Honey Ridge Farms label in the 1) low light setting 2) as a JPEG at 3) 12800, you'll see that the 7D2 does a rather impressive job compared to the 7D1, 7100 and 6000.
I'm tending to agree with many posters that we may be hitting limits on what we can do with a crop sensor, and yes I was hoping for something even better. But if the criteria is 1) a crop sensor camera + 2) low light performance, the 7D2 looks to me to take the crown -- only by a bit in RAW but by something more notable in JPEG.
You are from NJ...ENOUGH SAID
So what People are Saying there is no visible improvement with Canon 7 D Mark II Over Canon 7D.
Wow this is Pretty signifikant..
