On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (2457 comments in total)

For an indoor sports shooter this thing is a beast. The Flicker system should be amazing and really help with consistent colors under stadium or arena lighting.

Being able to shoot 10fps, with consistent metering and reliable autofocus, in a weather sealed body, for $1800 is unreal.

Retzius: Nikon went back to the AA filter?

The 36mpx D810 has no aa filter... and a higher pixel density.

Retzius: It has a Scene Mode Dial?

Who does Nikon think the user of this camera is?

$2300 body only isn't exactly cheap... With a lens its north of $3000. I doubt one is gonna drop 3k on a camera and need to shoot portraits with the little Scene Dial pointed to "portrait" mode.

Yes, there is... On my D200 I have AF-On to activate autofocus, Ae-L to lock exposure with the function button set to spot metering, and the shutter to shutter release only.

Good news is that with the release of the camera the D610 should see a price drop. Otherwise, they are too close in price, body only, to coexist.

"So if you're one of those people that's still holding out for a replacement for the D300S... well, you might be looking at it."

I have said all year that Photokina was the year I would stay with or leave Nikon based on the appearance or no appearance of the D400.

It appears I will be leaving Nikon then. Sad really, I love my D200 and have waited almost years for a D400. I am still holding out for a surprise show announcement; if it does not come I will sell my gear and go for the Canon 7D MkII. At least they want my business.

Pentax really needs to design a new compact standard lens. That old lens looks really out of place on this new camera.

They should make a series with out of focus riots/explosions/conflict zones/etc. so I can be an instant photo journalist.

Half the AP pool would probably use them...

So I could buy the Pentax 645z with the same sensor and the whole camera for a third less than the cost of just this sensor-back?

OK Hassy... Whats next, your gonna put fancy wood on a Sony and charge 10x as much for it?

I'm sure this is a great camera but somehow these output of these images don't wow me.

Retzius: Does this fix the flopping mirror?

Thanks for your reply. Thats a shame... I have been looking at this camera but the reported mirror flop problem keeps me from pulling the trigger.
