Thoughts about th new 7D MkII

I've never had the chance to use the 7D, I have heard good things about it though.
The specs for the new 7D MkII were posted today and I was wondering what y'all thought of it.

IMHO it's a little over-priced but such is Canon.

As you probably know the 7D became iconic in part due to the Magic Lantern upgrade. It was the sweet spot between the 5D line and the Rebel tXi line.

Its main advantage was the insane card-write speed, twice of the Rebel cameras. Outside of that it was exactly the same as the t2I for filmmaking.

The new 7D MkII is even more meh for filmmaking given the range of options. The BMPCC alone knocks it out cold barely breaking a sweat.

Good luck!

The new Canon 7D Mkii looks like more of a still-photo upgrade than a film-making upgrade. It barely brings anything to the table for the film-maker, and may have all of the horrible moire and aliasing issues that the Canon 70D currently has. Great AF, but poor video image quality.
