steelhead3: Interesting dichotomy, Nikon grabs the low end market and Sony grabs the high end.

But Sony has not DSLRs in its rage.....

David zzzzzzzzzz: WOW, the 7D Mark II is really a niche product! For the average photographer, can't think of one good reason to go for the Mark II. I have noticed on the DPREVIEW traffic meter that it is generating very little interest, this is a half baked offering. Not interested at all.

Having replaced my 7D with the new 7D mkii after 5 years of use i could tell you that the new model is even better to the average user since he can use the jpg files straight from the camera when with the old model he had to spend time working with thw raw files. The difference in image quality is huge!

kelleym: So I understand this is sort of comparing apples to oranges... but only "sort of", given how much in common they share. What this review is missing is a discussion about the 70D versus this camera.

Yeah, 7D blows away the 70D in terms of stills, but what about video? It appears to be missing the touch screen, has more modes (but the slow motion modes are somewhat crippled by not using Dual AF) but what about video quality? Is the 70D and 7D about the same? If I want to buy based on video quality is it worth spending the extra $$$ for the 7D?

Anyone have any thoughts about this?

Canon 7D mkii is the ultimate action photography camera but Canon 1DX and Nikon D4s. If you regret the touch screen look for other choices. ....

grafguy: I know any forum on any subject is bound to have users debating the finer points of the latest technology and whether it executes well, has evolved and trumps the competition.

I can't help but wonder if all that discourse misses the point, of in this case, does it take great stills and videos?

I have yet to be proven that a $$$$ camera makes you a better photographer that puts out superior pictures than a competent amateur with a 50D.

I know this won't, and is not intended to, stop the technology pit talk, but just show me the pics.

To understand the difference the technology brings with a new product I can tell you that with the old 7D I was spending time working on raw files of almost every picture when with the new 7D mkii i can use the picture straight from the jpg file most of the times......

Zain Khalid: Hey Guys ,
Should i get the 7D Mark II or The D7200 ?
I'm little confused because of the DXOMark Image Quality Scores .

Having replace the 7D with 7Dmkii recently after 5 years of use and more than 100.000 frames I can admit that's the most amazing camera I have ever had. It's so god that now I regret the money I spent last November to buy a 5D mkiii too.....

Gerrit J: I miss the "Av" button to make adjustments to the exposure on the back of the EOS 760D. Does anybody know how the EOS 760D is able to simply (not via a menu structure) adjust exposure.

I suppose that since 760D has a wheel at the back like 7D etc by turning the wheel with your thumb you change exposure compensation. It's much more convenient and it's not necessary to remove your eye from the viewfinder since you can see the change in the viewscreen ;)

parallaxproblem: Simply awful: hundreds of dollars for something that becomes landfill as soon as the battery is expired. Shall we also start scrapping cars when the tyres wear or brake pads need replacing?

Apple was the company that started this wasteful trend and I will never buy one of their products for exactly this reason

Me too....

Abhijith Kannankavil: Many peple are complaining here that 6D is even lower speced than a 7D. Yes. it is. In fact, the only camera a 7D owner may want to upgrade to (in canon lineup) without missing on anything is the 1D-x.

7D is their flagship APS-C. Whatever it is, it's a flagship still. Even after years after the launch, it's still attractive if you look for what you need (not what you want).

While 6D is the cheapest Full frame in canon lineup. It is an entry level model. Do not compare it with the flagship.

Only thing 6D will do better than 7D is low light pics. And the insignificant 2MP added to it.

APS-C sensor is crusial to them who are taking wildlife and sports photos and most of them use Canon 7D. So stop saying to replace it with full frame

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.

Yes, I have a 7D three years now and I have taken more than 45,000 photos. It's the camera of choise for anyone who like bird photography, even the professionals. The noise is a problem but you learn to live with it... I would like to have a socond, full frame, camera for landscapes, macro and portraits but 6D has the same price with 5D MkII (before 5D MkIII appears in the market). I am so disappointed ....

Katie the 1,6X sensor is crucial for them who are taking wildlife and sports photos like me. The full frame sensor at the other hand is good for landscape, portaiture and wedding photography which also I like too. So why do you ask to retire it? How long are you involving with photography?

Niklas Ramstedt: If I was a canon shooter and had a 5D Mark II/III, I'd consider this as a second body for weddings and such.

Why not a second 5D Mk II? The price probably will be the same and you will not invest on SD cards.......

If the price is 2100 $ like the 5D MkII how 6D could be an "affordable" full frame camera? Every new L lens is 50% pricer from the previous edition. I am afraid that soon or later we have to switch to an other camera system....
