    I don't think 7DII will have an evf... if so, I think a lot of wildlife photographer will be disappointed as a lot of wildlife photographer use the viewfinder a lot even when not taking photo and most of them won't be happy if they need to bring a lots of batteries.

   Have a nice day.

There are two things we can guarantee about the 7DII.

1: it will not have an EVF ( thank goodness)

2: it will be met by howls of derision and disappointment on the Internet forums that will then gradually turn to grunts of respect twelve months later  ;)

So, so true.

Congrats on the arrival.  Great shots both of you.  I am seriously considering this lens for birding thanks to the great looking 600mm shots.

Thanks.  The bird lifted up after the pass and the coyote went right after it.  Not much missed in between except maybe the harrier going into the lift and the coyote following up with his head.

Ahh gotcha, thanks for the reply! In the 2nd last photo when the hawk is right above the coyote's head you can see that the coyote's heat is quickly turning and its eyes seem to be closed. Is it just shaking its head back and forth like dogs do sometimes or is it trying to see what's over it, and/or trying to duck? lol
Definitely ducking.  Those talons can do some serious damage.

What a great series! And great snap shooting on your part, too. Thanks so much for sharing.

What's your sense of what was happening? Was the hawk attacking the coyote or trying to rob him of a kill or just plain harassing him?

Zen :)

Thank you.  I usually get caught up in the moment and gawk.

My attention was caught by the harrier flying low over the brush and flying like it was trying to attack a large object.  I then noticed the coyote in the brush.  They played a little hide and seek and then the harrier broke off.  It moved to a brush clump and landed.  It appeared to be protecting a nest.  The coyote then moved into the open area and I started to take a few pictures of it since it was a decent open look.  I then noticed the Harrier coming back.  So I stayed with the scene and got these shots.

I loved the build up but sadly the big gap between the 2nd last, and last photo left me wanting to know both what happened in between and why you didn't catch it since you caught everything else.

Still, they're great shots, it just strikes me as a story without a proper ending. :)

- The market leader delivers acceptable price and quality, but is never the best
- A Label and its reputation has a value and can be sold, either to sb else or it can be milked until its no longer there

No disagreement there. The "best" is always a subjective assessment, but it is certainly true that the incremental costs go up significantly as product quality goes from "excellent" to "best." There are also a diminishing number of buyers who are willing or able to afford the "best." Which is why most companies that offer the "best" tend to be small, niche market firms.

Canon is the marked leader, thats unquestioned. For sure pictures and videos can be taken by ther equipment, but either has their equipment the best specs or performance nor is it the cheapest (50L vs 50 1.4 Sigma).

Specs are subjective. In your specific example, the 50mm f1.4 Sigma may have marginally better optical performance, but build quality, reliability, consistency and durability are at least up for debate. For many buyers, those qualities can take precedence over a marginal improvement in optical quality

Further its not the most innovative, Examples are the Sig 18-35 zoom, again the 50mm Sigma which is the first affordable non Gauss 50mm, or the much better exmor sensors in the Sony / Nikon bodies.

You are cherry-picking innovation. Canon's dual-pixel technology is just one example where they are at the leading edge. You should really state that Canon is not the most innovative in the areas you want.

In sensor performance Canon is the worst of the bigger players now...

That's just false. Canon has the best performing full frame sensor available in terms of high ISO noise performance. Again, you are cherry-picking narrow areas of sensor performance and claiming Canon is "the worst." The same could be done for any brand of sensor. 

Whats later, when high end users do the switch in large numbers and newcomers buy whats said to be better it might be quite late...

What users are switching? Let's see some numbers. Because, all the numbers that have been published would indicate just the opposite.

Finally, let's have a dose of reality here. Cameras are a tool to produce a final product. The vast majority of final products being produced by cameras live on the internet. Even the lowest-priced APS-C camera available today is more than adequate for web-based final products.

The threat to Canon is not from being out-innovated by their peers. The threat is from a cultural change in how the mass of the public takes and uses pictures. The real need for innovation within the industry would be innovative ways to foster greater demand.

Excellent deconstruction.  Agree with you on the real need for innovation.
