Is it true that AF is lower then with the 3?

I am pretty sure canon made a nice profit on the 7D its Price to performance ratio is very high though it could use an update in the noise department.

I can do that with my K5...........

Thanks guys I took some shots today an they came out better, I did some quick tests with the af and I think its right.

I think my big problem is just camera shake my tripod head is crap, when I upped the shutter to 1/2000 it got sharper. You can see full size version at my flicker page

I still think my K5 is sharper but we will see as I take more with this combo.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / ISO levels

Since getting my 7d I have noticed it has more iso steps them my K5, with the K5 is 100,200,400 and so on but the 7d has far more levels. I have seen a lot of people say don't use the half stops why is this? does using the odd numbers increase noise?

I had my Pentax K5 and 300mm f4 fall off my car on to pavement worked fine, then I tripped and fell into a pond and it still works.

I have not knocked my 7D around yet touch wood lol.

thanks I have some kinda sharp images but I am not sure if they could be sharper, my K5 just seems sharper.
I will look into focus adjustments.

I didn't use a cable I don't have one.

Here is another one I took today does it seem sharp?

HI guys I picked up a 7D and a 400mm 5.6 but I am having trouble getting sharp images. I also have a Pentax K5 and have no problems getting tact sharp with that.

for example here is a bird pic I took today I over exposed it because I was told to with the 7d to fix noise and such.  I croped it a bit to lower the image size.

the settings I used was ISO320, 400mm, f5.6, 1/250 and I was using a tripod.!1314

Lenses / Buying a used canon 500 F4

Hello everyone I am in talks with a guy to buy a 500 f4 I would trade it for my 400 5.6 + cash for $3900 he says its in perfect condition and comes with everything. Is this a good deal?

What should I look for when checking the lens?


EOS Bodies / 7D question
« on: August 06, 2012, 10:53:29 PM »
Hey guys I just picked up a used 7D to go along with my K5 great camera was just wondering is there a way to zoom in on a picture right away on the last picture taken or do you have to always hit the play button then zoom in.


I am a Pentax user and I am looking at Nikon or canon for wildlife work. I have to say from using a 7D its has one of the worst control setups of any camera. If anyone has used a K7 or K5 you would be much happier you can think about taking good pics instead of fighting with the camera. Unless you need fast AF then pentax is behind in that.
