So, I actually sold some gear, took advantage of the 6 months no Interest on PayPal and bought the Canon 7D Mark II.

HOLY COW this thing is huge and heavy!

How does anyone carry this around all day? I carry my T6 in my backpack everywhere, everyday. This thing is nearly a third larger and almost twice as heavy as my T6.

I REALLY wanted all the speed and fire power improvements, but I wasn’t expecting it to be THIS BIG!

I’ve got 14 days to test it and get used to it. But I may just continue to live with my T6 until the AF, focus tracking, FPS, buffer, and low light performance/low grain at high ISO, finds its way into something the size of a... well... T6.


Do YOU keep your 7D II on you all the time?

Did you come from a smaller camera?

How did you adjust?

Was it worth the compromise in size?

Thanks for your feedback!

7D II side by side with T6

T6 in my rather diminutive hand.

7D II in my hand /much bigger AND heavier

This is why many here (sensibly) advise holding a camera before purchasing. Specs don't matter if it's not suitable.

I realise this is not always possible.

I'd guess if you figure out a good carry system you'll soon get used to the size difference
