Not trying to achieve anything on CR, Khufu. Of course Canon tests their cameras, that does not mean pros test them at events like the World Cup.

If I am paid by Canon to take pictures with a 7D2, that is what I will do. If I am paid to use a GoPro or an iPhone, then that's what I will use.
The goal is not to take great pictures at the world cup, it is to take great pictures with a 7D2 at the world cup.
What we are talking about however is pros at the world cup. Low light is not an issue, focal length is not an issue. The ability to get and keep focus is the single most critical in that scenario. If they are in a different scenario they might use a different camera that was more suitable.
Any pro that insists on using a particular piece of equipment outdoors for action photography simply because that is the piece of equipment they use in a studio should be looking for a new job IMO, because they are clearly incompetent.
The Youtube Video of SBS Australia's Dateline story of Tacloban City, 7 months after Typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan, is up. I was part of the production of the story.
A photo gallery of this trip can be viewed http://www.sbs.com.au/news/gallery/pictures-tacloban-after-disaster
All photos by me unless indicated.
I wasn't really interested in this camera until I read this thread. Now that I have watched some reviews I totally want to own this camera!! Damn it, this forum really makes you buy even more things than you wanted before!
I have just downloaded and installed them both. The changes to DPP are quite significant - especially in look/layout - and will take some time to get used to. Fortunately you can keep both the old and new version on your computer.
I have not delved into the new EOS Utility yet.
Still think it is great that Canon has taken the time, and spent the money, on improving what I see as an excellent piece of software. Bravo, Canon!
where did you download from?
