Take two: Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review

Ok, I get that this thing is weather proofed, has modern high ISO performance, as good a shutter as you’re going to get, and an AF system that’s best in class for tracking motion. All that said, it’s an $1,800 APS-C camera! Who has that kind of budget and can’t afford a FF camera that for not much more money can match most of the 7Dm2’s features with about double the sensor area? The Sony A99 is only 10% more money.

I get the “It’s pro” stuff, I just don’t get who is pro AND APS-C. If you’re pro, don’t you have enough glass where a few hundred dollars difference in body doesn’t mean that much? If so, what are you doing using expensive glass with a smaller sensor? I don’t get it.

Then again, if I’m a canon EF glass aficionado already and I really don’t want a non-weatherproofed body or one that doesn’t naively take EF glass, what choice do I have? I think that’s all that this needed. A tougher 70D indeed but seems like needless expense if that was the only goal.
