EOS Bodies / Re: Ron Martinsen Blasts the 7DII in his review

Well, he is correct that it is a disappointment because that is exactly what it is. Fans have rationalized it's shortcomings because it is a Canon and that is what they want, no matter what is actually delivered. The camera could have been so much more, but Canon for whatever reason chose to give us yesterday's tech instead of tomorrows.

Personally, if I were looking to upgrade and existing Canon camera (and I am), I would wait until the next round of upgrades and hope that they got off their a** and delivered a worthy product. Or, what is more likely to happen, upgrade to a camera with some other logo on the head plate.

I am sorry, but the reviewer lost all credibility when he started to complain about noise at iso 100 when zoomed in 100%. That is like looking with a magnifying glass at a picture the size of a 4x5meter wall. O MY GOD SO MUCH NOISE.

"This image looks nice at first until you zoom in at 100%, there is so much noise at iso 1600!!!"

And then he continues to rant how bad this camera  is for a sports photographer. Yeah right, i am pretty sure 99% of the sport photographers out there dont print larger than the size of a newspaper that you can hold with 2 hands easely and publish in websize format on websites like facebook. Heck, very few sport photographers actually earn money these days since the market has been completely destroyed anyway. What the hell is he talking about?

Fact is, at iso 3200 and higher all the images produced are still pretty useable for newspapers and facebook (LOL!)

How you like your 1DX?

Hi Dylan,

I've found it to be excellent. Seems like I made a good choice  ;)

I do believe I have read my last Ron Martinsen review ...

Thanks Eldar.  Your user experience comments are always well balanced and appreciated. I did read a couple of Ron's other reviews and they are inconsistent at best.

Some people blog for kicks while others blog just for the clicks ;D  I'll file him away with Northrup as unreliable and never to be viewed again.

Here´s a short video, where he is demonstrating the fantastic (in his view) autofocus with facial recognition on the D4S:

Even for a totally still, well (over)lit face, it still hunts ...

In his D4S review, which he claim has the best AF system in the world, he is using his kid on a swing, as "the ultimate AF challenge" ::)

I have played with the 7DII for some time now and to bash its AF system can only imply that they guy either had a poor copy or he does not know what he is doing. I used it this weekend to shoot small birds, jumping around in trees, with the 600 f4L IS II and the 1.4xIII extender. At 1/640s, f5.6-6.3 and ISO 3200-5000, my keeper rate is high, so how he managed to have problems with large slow moving subjects (people), in high contrast outfits is beyond me.

I have not tried the D4S, but I don´t remember having seen any review claiming that it has a better AF system than the 1DX, which I know very well. And I have seen for myself that the 7DII stands up very well to what the 1DX delivers, at a fraction of the price.

As for ISO performance, I, like many others, would have liked to see a greater improvement, but it is an improvement. And as for body ergonomics, I have absolutely nothing to complain about. Well, I´ll correct that; I would have liked the AF mode switch to work both ways, so I didn´t have to run through all modes every time (I can live with that ;)

I do believe I have read my last Ron Martinsen review ...

He says that if you have a large investment in big whites, you should go and buy a Nikon???
