One thing that i am finding is that the 7D2 is unable to get a lock on smaller subjects, even in spot AF. I compared the 7D2 to the 5D3 AF on the same subjects and even with bright sunlight the 5D3 focus just locks on and stays put. I'm not sure if this is because the AF sensor design is different that the 5D3 or if there is some other problem with the phase detect software.
It's still MUCH improved over the old 7D but I think there is some room for improvement. Hopefully it's just a firmware tweak.
When shooting larger subjects like people, eagles and herons which are fairly large in the frame, the AF has no issues.
Anyone else notice this? Those with 5D3's are better suited to compare.
I have not tried the MK II, but one of the strengths of my original two 7D's was the ability of spot AF to lock on to a subject, even with branches or a chain link fence in the way. I'd be surprised if the new one is worse in that regard.
