I just want to be sure I understand everyone, if a camera takes good and bad photos of a subject with not setting changes it's a AFMA problem? I would think that it would be consistent.
that´s all fine but fact is overall the 7D MK2 get´s a lot of bad press.
no matter if it´s justified or not this will make an impression on customers.
only three example:
you can say what you want about DXO but it carrys a lot of weight as you can see.
if canon does not counter that, the reputation is gone. if it´s not already too late.
And another vote for the little voigt.
It's a fun lens. Simply using it is a pleasure, the manual focus thingy is not really an issue (especially when shooting landscapes, just set it at the infinity hard stop and be done with it...).
Resulting photo looks good too. f/3.5 to f/5 is not really the sharpest in the corner but it's manageable. f/5.6 to f/11, the lens is excellent across the frame.
On starry skies, it's not that good though. You'll get visible coma on the outer third of the image.
There's also a bit of CA from time to time, but that can be removed easily. Almost no flare though.
I've been playing with it for the last year or so and it's still one of my most used lens.
FYI, I have the dock and I did my best to put it to good use. But it never changed the inconsistency. How do you set a value, when the deveation from measurement to measurement goes from -15 to +15?
Canon crop is still worse than everyone else when it comes to color noise (and the 5D III and 1D X are still worse than the D810).
If you get the 6d you don't have to get a 24-70. Maybe the 16-35 f/4 plus your 50 and your 70-200 makes a great kit?
I have been a Canon user my entire life. I love the product, including DPP which is my RAW converter of choice.
I presently shoot with a 1D Mark IV and a 5D Mark III, which are fully supported by my present version of DPP. The 7D Mark II requires that I update my DPP.
Here is my problem with that.....
The newer version of DPP does not support my operating system. I run Vista 64. Updating my operating system requires that I go to Windows 8 which needs a clean install. Huge job. Also, I'm not sure that a lot of my current software will run on Windows 8. I have CS4 as well as plugins such as NIK, Neat Image and a slew of other free standing applications.
As much as I was not comfortable with the user interface of Lightroom when I tried a demo last year, I thought I would now have to go that route. Guess what? Right. It's now only available under CC and I refuse to rent software on a monthly fee basis which is why I still run CS4.
I'm 72 years old so I guess my 1D4 and 5D3 will have to do me the rest of my life or until my computer cr@ps out and I have no choice.
All Canon had to do was continue to support the operating system and I would have added a 7D2 to my bag.
Okay..... rant over.
Er... Does it shoot RAW?
Probably not. Exmor should improve DR across the board though
Anecdotally, my HTC One (no clue who builds the sensor) seemed to have significantly wider DR than my iphone 6 has. The former's camera was generally awful, but occasionally I'd look at a picture and truly wonder if I could replicate it with one of my SLRs in a single exposure.
