Expert review by : Lori Grunin (cnet.com)

A great enthusiast dSLR gets better, but Canon's 7D Mark II is still missing some pieces (review)

 

The Mark II improves significantly over the original 7D in a lot of ways, but retains some of its annoying traits.

Preserving its familiar and weather-sealed design, the 7D Mark II builds on the best of its predecessor: it's speedy with excellent photo and video quality, GPS, a flexible autofocus system and a big, bright viewfinder.

No tilting or articulated display makes shooting video without a rig annoying, and it lacks built-in Wi-Fi.

The fixed LCD and lack of built-in wireless file transfer support may make some people cross it off their short list, but the Canon EOS 7D Mark II should please any Canon fan looking for speed.

Canon EOS 7D Mark II Body Only

 

Available for $1,700 (£1,000, AU$2,580) for the body, the much cheaper 7D looks really attractive in comparison (roughly $900, £600, AU$1,100) if you don't need the updates -- especially since using the money to spring for a better lens than one of the...

Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review

 

In the five years since its launch, the Canon EOS 7D has gone from being a cutting-edge piece of technology to an apparent remnant of a bygone age. Not simply in the sense that its technology has been superseded, but also in that the idea of a...

Under the hood the 7D Mark II is an entirely different beast than the original 7D. It appears that instead of focusing on increased resolution, Canon focused on improving virtually every other system on the camera to make it easier for photographers to...

Editor's Choice

Expert review by : Jim Fisher (pcmag.com)

Canon EOS 7D Mark II

 

The Canon EOS 7D Mark II shoots at 10fps, offers pro-level video recording, and is built like a tank. It's our Editors' Choice for high-end APS-C D-SLRs.

10fps continuous shooting. 65-point cross-type autofocus system. Great control layout. Huge JPG shooting buffer. Lots of detail at high ISO. Access to Canon lens system. 1/8,000-second shutter. CF and SD card slots. Integrated GPS. 1080p60 video.

Pricey. Lacks built-in Wi-Fi. Fixed rear LCD. Servo AF unavailable when shooting at 1080p60.

The 3-inch rear display is very sharp thanks to a 1,040k-dot resolution. It's fixed, just like the similar 3.2-inch 1,037k-dot display used by the Pentax K-3. Canon doesn't advertise the 7D's LCD as having a gapless design that leaves no space between...

Canon EOS 7D review: This midrange dSLR delivers

 

Very fast; excellent photo quality; flexible autofocus system; big, bright viewfinder; streamlined interface; adds wireless flash control.

Single card slot; some annoying small and hard-to-feel buttons; limited to three shots for bracketing; Live View focusing still slow.

An excellent midrange dSLR, the Canon EOS 7D delivers for the money.
