So specs don’t seem to show dual cards or dual DIGIC, so the 90D isnt any sort of 7D2/80D compromise. It’s just an updated 80D.

I’m a Canon fan, but I really think they made a mistake dumping the 7D range.

But at least Canon just saved me $1500 as I won’t be buying a 90D anytime soon.

I agree it's a mistake. I've been rocking my old Rebel T2i for several years waiting on the 7D3 or perhaps the 6D2 (disappointed). Thought this might be it. Doesn't look like it'll get the dual card slots, top tier weather sealing, cramming more pixels on what seems to be the same sensor will result in poor low light (important for me).
I guess it'll be time to relegate the T2i to backup duty and go Z6, or Sony A7R3 (assuming it comes down a bit with the R4 announcement).

OUGrad05,

You mention a few things. I went to a 70D from my beloved T2i. Considering how old it is it was a great upgrade in high ISO performance. My granddaughter uses it when I get her out shooting.

It looks like you wrote that you're disappointed with the 6DII. If that's what you meant what don't you like about it?

Video functions are terrible and from everything I've been told the weather proofing is very limited. Also didn't like the auto focus limitations.
I have no doubt a 90D would be an upgrade, but I keep these things for 7 to 10 years, I quickly learned most of the functions on the T2i and found myself in situations where it was under performing, namely sports and indoor shooting, especially indoor sports.
It's also let me down several times when storm chasing.
Been ready for a change for several years and Canon continues to disappoint. I have only one decent lens so my investment is small. Looks like I'll be bouncing over to Sony or Nikon.
Considered the Fuji XT3 as a great budget performer.

6d2 is a joy to use! We have one here, it’s just not one of our main workhorses, however it fulfills a function in the business where the 7ds aren't a great choice, absolutely perfectly. Wonderful piece of kit. (And yes, its used for the low light stuff, but dont think that you get free light, but bumping that iso still yields great results. And weather proofing is not what you think it is, you still wrap up a weather proof camera in bad weather.)

Get past the reviews from non photographers and wannabes and it’s a great purchase today.
