Can you post some examples of the pictures in question? There could be many things going on here.

Seems like the 5DIV psycho visions are approaching fever pitch.
We may even see something real some time soon.

Unless its some sort of endless pimping of the sort like that preceded the 200-400 f/4 L.

I grew tired of that and just used my 200 1.8 with a 2x.

npdian,
I really love the pictures of the leaves, especially the 1st one. The spot lighting with high vignetting does a wonderful job of isolating the leaf. Great job ;D



You're right. Thanks.

Thanks Serendipidy. You're right.  The combination of the right exposure and a darker background produced the photo.

Hi all!

I´m often reading posts in this forum concerning the newer 7D MkII. Decided to get this cam instead a FF because of some wildlife photography and the crop-factor. For me the cam is alright, also for other subjects that I do a lot, also for some semi-pro use.
My problem: for me it is not possible to get a single sharp picture at higher distances (e.g. 20 metres away, like birds etc.)   :o 
But: at shorter distances it´s ok.  ???

I tried many things to find out, what the problem is: different cams, lenses, adjustments...
Here´s my spec: Iso 200, back-button focus, raw, shutter-speed 1/250 +/-, tripod, 100-400II, liveview, is-off.
That is how to get super-sharp pics with other cams - but not here. There is always some kind of haze instead of sharpness in the pics, especially when magnifying.

How do you all manage to get these sharp pics I´ve seen?
I think afma is not needed because of liveview (contrast-detection) -> no back/frontfocus.
S.th. wrong with cam? Some kind of distorted technique? Send to Canon? Other ideas?

Thank you for your replies.
 :)


PS: Maybe others have the same problem with that pix-monster (effec. 50mpix) ?!

Lots of rumors from Sigma lately. Unfortunately, not so many from Canon...  :(

Canon is busy marketing their 'videographer's kit' with 18-135 lens and feeding their fan boys DPAF (that's the only thing I see their fan boys mentioning in last 2 years lolz).

I had really high hopes for the ^D but it was a letdown.

Cheap feeling, slow AF and poor weather seals made me feel like I was taking a step down replacing my 7D with it.

The timing is not odd at all. Three days before Photokina is Cinec in Munich home town to Arri and a perfect opportunity to capture the largest rental houses from the US & Europe.

"Have you micro adjusted your body/lenses? Also, using FF lenses on a crop body means that you take a sharpness/detail hit, what lenses are you using?"

The sharpness-problem: I did no afma, because when analysing the problem I compared phase-detection af to liveview-af. In lifeview (=contrast-detection) and best conditions (magnify 10x, tripod, higher shutter speed, , raw-files, stills, clear air etc., 100-400II) no very good sharpness was possible. Here in the forum and elsewhere I´ve seen perfect clear pics with that cam/lens combi. What is wrong? Isn´t afma not necessary when using lifeview??
Thanks for your reply!

Coming back to the TO:
After using crop for long time, I´got used to it. The 7DII is very good compared to other crops I´ve used. If this combo would deliver superb-sharpness (like I´ve seen in some posts), I don´t feel like changing to FF, also for landscapes, events etc.
