7D MK II Sample Images / Re: Comet Lovejoy with 7D2

Well done!

The 7D2 is my main body.  I keep my venerable 7D as a back up/second body.

Wonderful series Surapon.

CanadianInvestor you are correct no projectile just black powder.

First time I have been on the good side of a GBH landing shot. ;D

Lovely shot Glenn.

Definitely yes.  You get the latest and greatest firmware for the lens and MFA at 4 focal lengths at least.  Plus the cost is minimal compared to the lens.

I have kept my 7D and it is now my backup/second body to a 7D Mark II.  I like the idea of not needing to switch lenses while on a hike.  I now have a birding camera and a GP/landscape camera.

Thanks DominoDude.

The bird was shaking it out in flight.  I have seen them do it several times.  I definitely consider it a once in a lifetime shot.

Thank you Domino Dude and Click.

Both Kinglets are tiny, quick, timid and elusive.  The golden more so than the ruby.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 7d mk2 seems very soft?

One thing that i am finding is that the 7D2 is unable to get a lock on smaller subjects, even in spot AF.  I compared the 7D2 to the 5D3 AF on the same subjects and even with bright sunlight the 5D3 focus just locks on and stays put.  I'm not sure if this is because the AF sensor design is different that the 5D3 or if there is some other problem with the phase detect software.

It's still MUCH improved over the old 7D but I think there is some room for improvement.  Hopefully it's just a firmware tweak.

When shooting larger subjects like people, eagles and herons which are fairly large in the frame, the AF has no issues.

Anyone else notice this?  Those with 5D3's are better suited to compare.

I have not tried the MK II, but one of the strengths of my original two 7D's was the ability of spot AF to lock on to a subject, even with branches or a chain link fence in the way.  I'd be surprised if the new one is worse in that regard.

I feel it is better than the 7D.  I know spot focus is only 1.8% of the screen in the 7DII versus 2.6% in the 7D IIRC.  It is much easier to thread the needle now.  Well as long as you don't get too ambitious.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon 7D MKII -- Love the low noise!
« on: November 30, 2014, 06:20:00 PM »
Yes the noise is quite better than the 7D and what noise creeps in at higher ISO's seems to be more random and smaller.  It's still not as good as the full frame 5d3 or 1dx but for a camera that is less than 2K there is no match when you compare it to other brands as a system and not just on noise.

So true and what noise is there cleans up much easier and better also.

JRPhotos - a beautiful shot.
