I think it's fair comment when people are reduced to excusing away low ISO noise and DR quality.

Really? The 7d & 7d2 not even as a door stop?
I though it was generally fair. I wouldn't have put so much space into the low ISO DR testing since the results were to be expected and didn't reflect the 7D2's intended High speed/High ISO/ Long Lens use.
I concur. I liked the review. I think they spent a bit more time dwelling on low ISO noise than was probably warranted for the target market.
Generalize much? That statement could not be less true. Many of the worlds best wildlife photographers were still using 7D's as recently as a month ago, That was when they switched to 7D2's. You should get out more or find some new "professional" wildlife photographers to shoot with.
I posted this to the BIF thread earlier today. Center 15pt small zone AF. I have a sequence of about a dozen of these and they are all sharp despite some very erratic movement. The AF works great if you put the effort into it. It took a while for me to get it dialed in.
You would think, but my experience had been that I would rather crop than deal with the IQ from the 7D
The 6D will beat out the 7D in all circumstances related to low light, both for focusing and high ISO noise.
there is no match when you compare it to other brands as a system and not just on noise.
I think it is a better tool for bird and wildlife photography than a full frame camera.
Please explain: how can a sensor compensate for inappropriate or low-quality lens? How can a sensor compensate for very poor focus? How can a sensor compensate for poor composition?
I guess the lesson today is that post processing trumps all.
