Looking at 7D II specs, I can't wait to see rumors 5D4 & 1DX II from Mr. CR

For shooting pets, outdoor, wildlife, people, landscape.

If you shoot indoor and nature light, then 6D is your camera. 7D II is more for outdoor sports and wildlife shooters.

I honestly do not believe any Canon or Nikon system currently has anything like flexible spot. I know there are the zone and all points modes, but when you pick a single AF point, as far as I know (and maybe the 1D X is different), only that one point will be used, regardless.

I think you are mistaken.  Just to make sure we're on the same page here regarding the 5DIII (that page is p.77 from the 5DIII manual), with 61-pt auto selection in AI Servo, you manually select any single AF (1), and the AF system will track the subject across the array of AF points, switching points (2).

So again, can you please explain what is different about the Sony system?

Well, maybe it's just something up with my 5D III. It's currently in my hands. I'm looking at the top LCD, and it says "AI SERVO". When I look through the viewfinder, I see the AF display for One-Shot AF. I don't see any AF points displayed...I only see the brackets. If I move the joystick around, no AF point shows up or is selected. If I activate AF...THEN I see AF points.

Manual, p. 74:

With 61-point automatic selection AF, you can set the starting AF point for AI Servo AF

Right. It doesn't seem to work on my particular 5D III. :(

Are you sure you on 61AF points + Ai servo?

Mine works just like others mentioned. I used 61AF points in BIF.

For all that the 7DII is shaping up to be a mini-1D X, I'm just going to stick with my full-sized 1D X.  :)

+1...until X II :P

hummer from today - not quite sharp on her eyes, but I liked the pose and setting.

Me too

+1 on the MTF charts - AWESOME.

The weight seems very attractive.

Solid body  :)

At f2.8, the 70-200mm has better sharpness than 24-105 at f4. The gasket should make contact with body nicely.

You might have a bad copy. Return it

Hmmm.  Maybe it is time to upgrade my G6!  Well, when I want something small I've got my M.  And, my wife is VERY happy with her RX1000iii 'cause she really wanted a viewfinder.

It's too early to tell, but I doubt this will out perform your RX100 III. The EVF is a nice feature to shoot outdoor. The price remains primary factor for these two. I don't see how Canon would priced at $800ish. If it around $600ish and MUST BE pocketable then Canon has upper hand.

Lenses / Questions: Canon 200mm f2 IS
« on: September 13, 2014, 12:45:59 PM »
Hi guys,
Quick questions for those owning 85L II, 135L and 70-200 f2.8 IS II.

1. Is there room for 200mm f2 IS II to blend in?

2. In what situation do you pull out the 200mm f2 IS II?

3. Did you sell any lenses after 200mm f2 IS purchase? Why?

Thanks in advance
Dylan

I'm probably going to get one just for the AF system. Any other improvements are gravy :)

That the key to sell 7D II - speed and accuracy for outdoor shooters
