It's ok, a little underwhelming compared to the competition
on 17 December 2015
As a 7D and 5D3 owner I was hoping for a little more from a camera several years newer but that's not really what I found.
It's a good, capable APS-C dslr, there's no doubt of that but is the image quality any better than the 7D? Well no not really. Perhaps at very high ISO's it's a tiny bit cleaner but for several years development the Canons are still miles behind the Nikons and Sonys. You also lose some of the AF functions, some speed, one axis of the in-camera level and a lot of weathersealing. You gain things like Wifi and a tilting screen that's awkward to get out.
If you aren't invested in the Canon system as I am I would look elsewhere, but as an upgrade to a Rebel or similar, it's ok, not stunning in any way (except possibly video which I don't use) but I'm underwhelmed, sadly, as I love Canon.
