Just back into Jakarta today, will go out tomorrow & shoot some trees or something, post some stuff tomorrow evening, keen to see myself how it compares to the 200f/2, 300f/2.8 V2, 400f/2.8 V2 & 600f/4 V2, I cant set side by side with the 400 as I lent it to a friend of mine in South Africa, I'll pick the 400 back up in 2 weeks when I get to Dar Es Salam on the way to Tanzania. But I can do side by side with the 200, 300 & 600.
Thank you. I am especially interested in comparison with the 600...
And best wishes for your trip.
New Baby, just received today, not as pretty as Bornshooters Models, but arguably less trouble.
Shot with 1Dx
NEED TO SEE A PHOTO OF THE 540MM OF THIS LENS AND SAME SHOT FROM 600II. Pleaseeeeeeeeee. Also 100% crop. And if you are kind to a bokeh comparison. Be kind to the less privileged. PLEASEEEE
Keep in mind 7D was designed for speed, not so much high ISO. I can see 7D II might have 61pts AF like 5D III and an increase in frame rate(maybe 10-fps). BUT NOT IN HIGH ISO or LOW LIGHT like 5D III, regardless what the new sensor might be.
Just the opposite, IMO.
It's much more likely that we'll see a big step up in image quality than a big step in features.
See my previous post.QuoteCanon will not put 7D II in near 5D III in term of high ISO/LOW LIGHT. 5D III is only 1yr old plus, it still have another 3-4yrs more before we seeing any rumors 5D 4.
The 5DIII needs to differentiate itself much better from both the 6D and the 7DII.
And the only way it can do that is by getting a high-quality ~30MP sensor.
So, I'm actually expecting that the 5DIII will get a replacement sooner than many expect.
Maybe as early as the spring of 2015.
I'll put my 25cents on the line that 7D II will not out perform 5D III in high ISO/low light.
Even Fuji & Sony are not capable to have their crop sensor out performs 5D III FF sensor yet.
Absolutely. Obviously. Size matters!

EDIT: For some shots, I do need to be further away and then crop around the main object
Does that change anything?
You're going to lose resolution, so your cropped images will have far fewer pixels.
Also, keep in mind that Aperture and some other software will not process SRAW.
Your best bet since you will crop some shots is to shoot in full-RAW. Once you process then convert it to an 80% or so JPEG and delete the RAW if the photos are for one time use.
I may even shoot JPEG+RAW in your circumstance for a while, and see how often you even need the RAW if you are short on HD space.

<p>We should have ours by Monday, and I have found the perfect cat and brick wall to test the lens out on.</p>
LOL - this is classic!
I have a bunch of old leather camera cases, I wonder if they might fit a 5D series body. I suspect that they are not wide enough or deep enough though.
I'll have to try now that you have mentioned it. I'll try my 40D as well, but I suspect that they are Rebel Sized, and that the digital bodies are deeper to make room for the electronics and LCD.
Its a shame, they are beautiful.
It is indeed a beauty! But what happens when you take a photo? The leather hangs at the bottom? Does that not increase the chances of blur when windy?
But love the case in any case.

If your gear has value beyond being a tool, why are you taking it to a place where it is endangered? And why are you going there?
To make pictures which would not be available elsewhere. But obviously! Duh!
And he has full rights to take precautions.
If the 7D MKII will have a crop sensor, I do not understand how the camera will have as good of high ISO performance as the full frame 5D MKIII.
Does anyone think the speculation of the 7D MKII high ISO performance is based on the in camera jpeg processing, or are they actually talking about the RAW files?
+1. I doubt they talking about RAW.
Some sort of diaphragm shutter could prevent dust from entering the camera during lens changing.
I keep wondering why they do not make a TC with zero power. That does not change magnification or degrade lens quality. Then we could leave the 'plain glass' on the camera and change lenses without fear of dust on sensor. We could just blow away, wipe away the dust from the plain glass.
Nice idea ya? I wish I could manufacture this and sell! lol
