It will be a HUGE step up from you XTi. If you're not big into video (battery) and you haven't been frustrated with the focusing of you Canon, then I say, "Go for it." I suspect that you'll be very happy with the II.

Thanks. I forgot to mention I'm also thinking of getting the 80D. Comparing between the A7ii, which sounds more appealing to you? Going for the same price right now.

Oh, the a7II is still winner, due to dynamic range and AF performance. Compared to your old camera, either is a significant improvement. Mirrorless is where everything is headed.

Another cross-fox shot from my trip to Churchill, Canada. A cross-fox is merely a red-fox with dark coloring, such that a cross is formed at the shoulderblades.

Thanks, Dave. I see that Canon has some mirrorless cameras also, but it seems the Sony is better than those models as well. I haven't had much time to research fully.
