EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 7D Mark II in 2014 [CR2]

Outsanding!

Yea, that 7D was not an easy camera for me to use. It took me 4-5 months before I really started to appreciate the information you could extract from the photos. My sharpest and most detailed shots are with it. With out a doubt what so ever for me to say that. I love detailed photos.

But? I didn't realize how poor the AF was until I went with a IV camera. For me it was a trade off well worth it. And I also think I would go with a 1DX or 5D III before ever going back to the 7D. Just for the AF.
The mark IV is the easiest camera I have ever worked with. But I cannot push it near as far as I did the 7D. The info is just not there to use and push.
My experience anyway, and my way of post processing. What really amazed me is in PS I could de noise and sharpen the 7D back to incredible detailed pics. With the IV I cannot. In my mind that is pixel density at work. Just amazing.

I can understand and appreciate that.  I thought the AF on the 7d was fantastic once I conquered it... It was far superior to the 60d I purchased or any of the Rebels I've owned. 

That being said, I had no idea how incredible the AF would be on the 5D III when I purchased it!  After using it for 6 months, I came to the realization that I wasn't using my 7d at all anymore...  I then took it out for a couple of jaunts to the lake and wow, I kept putting it down and grabbing my 5d III... I have way more keepers with the 5d III than my 7d. 

I did take quite a bit of time to research and put into practice, the tweaking of my 5d III settings and have improved even more since then...

I likely wouldn't pick up another 7d, though still very fond of it but I would definitely like to see what the MK II will bring to the table with regard to AF.  I think they are going to make it quite mouth watering...  :P


Sorry, have been out in the field shooting Pittas for the last few days. Beautiful birds.

Agree totally. The Mark II has some pretty big shoes to fill at this point IMO. I hope Canon comes threw with the goods. If not I will keep shooting the IV.

Well, I have an overall good feeling about the 7D Mk II.  I think they know they set the bar high when the original came out and given the popularity of the camera, my guess is that the Mk II won't be anything to sneeze at...   That being said, who knows!

Update: I will be taking it back to the shop I brought it from for them to look at it as it is still within the 3 month store warranty.
Sounds like the best choice.  I thought it was the IS too, until you said it happens with all your IS lenses... 

Just out of curiosity, Do you have any non IS lenses and if so, does it happen with them?

Hey Neuro, I was wondering if you use or have tried ML on your 7d?  If so, what did you think of it?  Thanks!

Sorry, never tried it.  I would consider it for my EOS M.
Considered it for my 7d but could never force myself to actually try it... just some trepidation there.  Likewise, I could be a candidate for it on my EOS M... Thank you!

why not, d800 has the same FWC as 1dx but 36 Mp
The best  SLR sensor on the market  today

I'm sorry, but that is a bold faced lie! The D800 has a full well capacity of 44k, while the 1D X has a full well capacity of 90k. That is a TWO FOLD difference between the two, bub!

Indeed.  But let's not allow facts get in the way of the same restated DRivel from the DRoll DRones who DRool over DR.   ::)

D800/E is already 36Mp with 14.5 stop DR... without the ISO tricks

You fell victim to one of the classic blunders - The most famous of which is "never get involved in a land war in Asia" - but only slightly less well-known is this: DxOMark's Scores are useless, biased Bovine Scat.


from the whole sensor area you get exactly the same FWC  from 1dx and d800


Full well capacity.  You keep using that phrase.  I do not think it means what you think it means.

From the whole sensor area?  Tell me...what is a 'well' in FWC?  How does the 'whole sensor area' affect the number of electons a well can hold?

You stated, "d800 has the same FWC as 1dx."  Now you're stating, "from the whole sensor area you get exactly the same FWC  from 1dx and d800."  I was beginning to think you understood this stuff.  I was wrong.  See...unlike some, I can admit it.   ::)

Cory, this image rocks!  Wish he was swimming toward you but it's really cool, nonetheless!   8)

Thank you all for your replies.

I called Canon & reported the problem, they had no idea why it's like that at all.  They told me to call whoever I bought it from.  I did and they're going to send me a new one.
Perfect!  That'll take care of it and you get to start all over with a brand new body!  How great is that! ;D

Or if you leave it unattended for too long...

I didn't think that mattered... how long unattended?  I assumed it would just sleep until the battery dies.  I've accidentally left mine powered on on my desktop for days, and when I went back and noticed, I touched the shutter and the screen came back on.

This is how my 7d behaves... pretty sure it's gone at least a day or two.
My apologies.  This was the case on my 7d too, not my 5d3.  My 5d3 pops right back up with a press of the shutter button for extended periods... My mistake.. :-[

Well this is a Sunset Cityscape really, or an Airportscape.

Anyway it's from our trip to the States. More to follow.
Fantastic image Sporgon!  I really  like this, it's a great composition and that 24-105mm is really showing it's "colors"! ;D  Thanks for sharing!
