Yes thats right @ Sujoy.
May be they are old school, no offense meant. Something they are used to and feel comfortable using it though there is better/faster/easier way to do (at least claims to be)Those who follow the compose-recompose method of framing also might not benefit from more cross-type AF points. I know a few D7000 users who have their cameras permanently set to centre point because they find that easier to handle, especially for event photography.
And just when we are drooling over the cross-type autofocus point along comes the double cross…
7D was the best birding DSLR till now ....nothings beats it....just that its ISO is very outdated now...and people dont like grains at ISO 1000 or ISO 1600 nowdays.
7DMKII will surely cost around 90k ...anyhow DX world is different ...people get DX for cheaper lenses and longer lenses...and fast burst speed at cheap ...
people like me shifting to FX will need to sell off there 4 out of 6 lenses ...then why will I bother at all
