The Redbull Skydive team took the Canon EOS 7D Mark II to the skies and did what anyone would do, jumped out of a perfectly good airplane to capture some fun raw and graded video that really shows off the autofocus capabilities.

Canon Rumors First Review of the Canon EOS 7D Mark II for Bird Photographers

Our friend Glenn Bartley has completed his first review of the Canon EOS 7D Mark II through the eyes of a birder. He will be doing a more intensive review once he returns from a 3 week trip to Cuba in December. Glenn is is one of the top bird photographers in North America and is a great resource if bird photography is one of your interests.

Glenn previously reviewed the Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS II for us.

From Glenn about the EOS 7D Mark II
“The Canon 7D mark II brings a lot to the table. Between the fantastic autofocus system, impressive build quality, video features and the improvements in image quality it is an incredible value.”

Review: DXOMark Reviews the Canon EOS 7D Mark II

Review: DXOMark Reviews the Canon EOS 7D Mark II

DXOMark has completed their review of the Canon EOS 7D Mark II. The review is good, but not glowing, as they feel there are some image quality issues with the sensor in the camera.

“On paper, the Canon EOS 7D Mk II looks to be a solid choice for sports and action photographers, but its sensor performance is somewhat behind the best in class, at least at low ISOs. Relatively high noise, less discriminating color, and below-average DR at base ISO all continue to hold back Canon sensors against rivals, but that’s not the case at higher sensitivities. In fact, when light levels fall, the Canon EOS 7D Mk II performs competitively, even surpassing rivals slightly. If Canon could only address performance at base and low ISO, the EOS 7D Mk II would make a thoroughly convincing all-round choice, but in this category the Sony A77 II looks to be the more compelling option.”

I’m not sure I agree with them as far as the Sony A77 II being a more compelling option, especially when you consider lenses and other accessories.

Canon 7D Mark II Teardown by LensRentals.com

Roger at LensRentals.com has done his usual teardown of a brand new Canon DSLR to see how well built the camera is. He found that the weather sealing on the EOS 7D Mark II is the best he’s seen in a DSLR.

Roger has this to say about the weathersealing
“So there you have it. This is, by dissection at least, the most thoroughly weather-sealed camera I’ve ever run across. (I would point out that I don’t take apart every camera so please don’t change my wording to say it’s the most weather sealed camera. I don’t know that.) But this isn’t just market-speak weather sealing. It’s a thorough and complete attempt to seal every possible crack and crevice the camera has.”

A Couple of Real World EOS 7D Mark II High ISO Samples

FroKnowsPhoto has posted their “PRE review” of the production EOS 7D Mark II that they recently got their hands on.

You can also view some full resolution ISO 12,800 and 16,000 sample images at the FroKnowsPhoto website.

“The samples images that I am sharing first show ISO 12,800 and 16,000. The 12,800 looks to be pretty solid for a cropped sensor camera. The 16,000 on the other hand is a little mushy but again it’s 16,000 on a cropped sensor it’s totally acceptable.”
