How do you know the 7D2 isn't great at action? Nobody has seen it yet....The world cup is brightly lit.....If it was going to be used, then look at low rank teams in the first pool matches. There certainly won't be any working pro's using it in the final.
If it kicks ass there will be.
Except compared to the 1Dx, it won't kick ass.
How do you know? For this application it might well.
But why? Pro sports photographers aren't focal length limited generally so what do they have to gain by using a crop body? The only advantage I could think of would be a potentially higher frame rate as the mirror and shutter is much smaller but even then 12fps is crazy quick, even 10 is a lot
Ummmm....because a more modern camera may have improved ability set and track focus than a 4 year old camera?
You are forgetting the 1D cameras were not designed yesterday, they are old cameras with even older technology. Stuff improves.
Yeah, an APS-C camera that sucks at low light. What a great camera for pro sports.
So we make a camera that's really great at shooting the World Cup? You missed the point. Pros shoot both indoor and outdoor sports and no one's going with an APS-C sensor considering no pro in the world is focal length limited. At least, none that I know.
My point isn't that the 7D2 isn't great at action, but it's not going to be good at low-light action and so it's probably not surprising at all that no one saw any pros at the World Cup using one. I'm not surprised, that's all.
There are a lot of sports where you can't get close to the action and you are focal length limited....
