Wow. Lot's of hate here for Scott Kelby. Someone said he didn't touch on the autofocus, which he did. He said the didn't think it was quite as fast as the 1Dx, but pretty close.
He mentioned it as an afterthought in response to a facebook comment. I guess it could be considered praise that he didn't hate the AF coming from the 1Dx? But he didn't talk about the different modes and how well they work, he barely mentioned the toggle by the joystick and admitted he didn't use it. He didn't even talk about which mode he did use as far as I can remember. The AF system and RAW sensor performance are the two major things that people who are interested in this camera want to know about and they are two things he didn't or, in the case of RAW, couldn't talk about. So instead he spent 20 minutes telling everyone that hey, did you know crop sensors give you more reach?
Another forehead slapper for this review is that he had two comments with, imo, completely valid questions - can you compare the 7DII to the 7D and/or 1DIV - and he was all "nope". Dude knows a zillion photographers and couldn't wrangle up a 7D or 1DIV for a comparison? He owns a 70D and he didn't even bother to compare it to that. Why would I buy a 7DII that's twice the price of a 70D if they have basically the same sensor and the AF of the 7DII wasn't even worth mentioning or testing out in the review?
Its not hating on Scott Kelby, its just criticism of the video. Those guys seem like they're good dudes and they are trying to have a little fun with the review but it all came off like a sales pitch, which is weird if he's not actually paid/sponsored by Canon. Also some of the dumb brotographer crap about how manly it is in the photo pit and you better have a grip on your cam or else was pretty
Just wonder does anyone look at his video title?? It's "Real World Field Report" meaning it just how he feel about the 7D2 in real world use... it's not a review and it's not a tutorial on how to use the camera.
This camera is target at those who want to shoot sports and wildlife and the most importance thing that we all want to know is: does the AF performance and speed of the camera as good as Canon claim in real world use?? His video did give us the answer... if you want to shoot sports and wildlife and can't afford the 1DX, this is the camera that you should consider.
Anyway, I'm not sure what did you guys expected from this camera? Given the pricing, I expected that this is basically a 70D with excellent build, faster and better AF performance and faster frame rate.
By the way, I'm buying this camera only because the AF performance, speed and build of the camera... I assume the IQ is basically same as 70D... if the IQ is better than 70D, then it's a bonus.
Have a nice day.
