20.2mp | 7.5x | $1,989
Five years after the original 7D debuted, the Mark II version is here, and with it, a host of upgrades and new features. Catering primarily to sports, action and wildlife photographers, the Canon 7D Mark II borrows many features and performance specs from their 1D-series models, but at a more affordable price. The 7D Mark II looks to continue this heritage with an even more flexible and powerful 65-pt. AF system, Dual DIGIC 6 processors, Dual Pixel CMOS AF, improved build quality and more advanced video features. The Canon 7D Mark II is a big upgrade over the 7D in many ways, though the Mark II does falter in a few areas. Read our in-depth Canon 7D Mark II review for more!
