Everyone knows that crop cameras can not be used in poor light, so there is no way you would use a 7D2 handheld an hour after sunset..... yet it works....

Don...Don...Don.  Why do you persist on posting examples like this, where you've done the post processing completely wrong?  If you've learned nearly nothing from these forums, you should have at least learned that shadows are to be abhored.  Yes, yes...I know it's an hour after sunset.  But that's your fault, you should have gotten there at noon when there was direct light on the foreground.  Instead, because of your laziness and/or untimeliness, your foreground is dark.  Too dark.  Way too dark.  And when you go to correct your egregious error in post processing, the dramatic flaws of the 7DII are revealed (particularly if you view a 100% crop).

Yes, Don we all agree that no crop camera should be used after sunset.  And much less handheld.  But here is another after sunset handheld picture taken with a 7DII.  Pretty much straight out of the camera.  Developed with Lightroom and standard presets, no noise reduction, sharpening or anything.

You are right, I forgot to push it by 4 stops.... Everyone knows that you are supposed to miss your exposure by 4 stops.....
The best camera is the one in your hands

The only place I feel I have been hampered with the camera has been in Rainforests with the huge contrast differences.


That's exactly what everybody is saying when they complain about canon's IQ...while most on this forum seem to think the only purpose for more DR is to purposefully underxpose photos I am more concerned about my high contrast scenes, because if you shoot wild life and animals that's a lot of what you get.
That's the reason my 7d2 is collecting dust, despite being a joy to use.

Great photos by the way!

 :o

I shoot pretty much nothing but wildlife and animals, and I've pretty much worn my 7D Mk II out doing it.

No, that's just a sarcastic dig at the obsession with DR - we know what the "advantages" of higher low ISO DR are, we're just utterly unpersuaded that they're as important as the DRones make them out to be.

I want my DR advantage to be at the other end of the histogram, and Canon bodies are excellent in the highlights.

Because of the 80D is a superb APS-C stills camera, there isn't a lot of reason to consider a 7DII today.

You keep saying that, despite it having been pointed out to you several times that it's nonsense.

Why?

We don't all sit in well-lit studios shooting watches and food packaging.

Give us a clean high-ISO, high-DR cropped for action/wildlife, one that extracts the very best from L quality lenses, and I'll buy.
That's the 7D Mk II...

Ok bud, you can love your camera without pretending it does things everyone knows it cannot.

So the xxD line still won't have 4k and the only 4k video aps-c will be a fixed screen model costing 2,000+USD? Don't do us any favors canon.

+1!

I have several pictures taken with the 7DII at ISO 6400 that look very good, both in sharpness and color, and with acceptable noise levels. It doesn't match the 1DX, but that is asking for too much.
