    Maybe they will come up with another minor upgrade model and calling it D350.

    Which is in essence an upgrade from D7100. All in all I like what I'm seeing from Canikon these couple of weeks.

    They might, but ... from a consumer point of view, I would rather get a new or used D800(E) and get to say 75% of the 7DmkII in speed, file size and buffer depth in DX, while retaining the flexibility of having a FF 36mp. I believe that would be cheaper in the long run without the nagging desire for a FF camera further down the road.

    Some people don't want to move to FF though. The D800E is also out of the price range of the 7D2; they are different cameras suited for different needs anyway

    So Canon folks prefer a whole range of FF bodies, each incrementally different and crippled at a couple of hundred dollars difference?

    I think they would prefer something which can brew coffee and play the blue ray at the same time. Got to ask them.....

    I think after waiting for 5 years, Canon users' expectation of a baby 1Dx shot through the roof. To see it handicapped and slight improvements compared to the 70D, not close to the 1Dx they have been aiming for, definitely will make some people disappointed. It will be just like if Nikon were to release the D400 now to replace the 5-year-old D300s, some of us Nikon users who envision a D400 to be a baby D4s will also be disappointed (so little improvement over D7100, eating D750's pie away, cant fight with Canon's 7D, etc, etc).

    And performance of D7100 (or better) at 8-10 fps at the price of D610 (at at worse D750). Yes I too will bite.

    That's almost a mini D4, similar to D300 is to D3.

    From the comments I have read, they poo-poo the 7D2 because it has no WiFi, does not use a super-expensive, not yet available CF card standard, and fixed LCD... I was like "HUH?"

    You should see the dpreview comments. People are jumping off the cliffs over the lack of a swivel screen and touch screen too

    Have you actually seen some of those mirrorless cameras with built-in wi-fi?
