Been following this thread since day one. Kinda chomping at the bit on pulling the trigger to unload my 60D and 5D MkII and work on an 80D. Bells and whistles do nothing for me, but SOOC IQ is what I want. Hate sitting at the computer trying to get that "eye grabbing look".

That being said, how would you rate the 80D's SOOC look? I see the photos posted but its very difficult,almost impossible, to know how much post has gone into the end result. What say you, 80D owner?


I used to think I was indecisive,but now I'm not too sure.

Not a lot of PP goes into mine, but some is necessary as I always shoot RAW. I particularly love the depth of colours the 80D gives me. And, of course, Lightroom can give any pic a boost.

Like Terry, I also only shoot RAW, so I have to process mine. You can edit picture styles in the camera (or create new ones), though, to achieve certain looks.

Great shots (especially 1st)!! Wanted to get that lens but was scared off by the manual focus. I'm used to manual focus and have several old manual focus lenses that I still use today. I just couldn't imagine trying to focus manually on small, quick moving critters that aren't exactly willing to sit still and pose for you. Got the 100mm F/2.8 instead.

Thanks!
I was a bit skeptical before getting the MP-E as well, but then I tried shooting with the 60mm macro and three extension tubes and found that it works surprisingly well. I focus by moving slightly forward and backward as turning the ring on the lens changes the magnification. I mostly shoot short bursts of about three shots, which gives me a halfway decent keeper rate.
Wind is a killer, though. I can't get a single decent shot when it's windy.

This is a stack of three images. I don't have any dedicated photo stacking program so I used Affinity Photo. Worked surprisingly well IMO considering I shot handheld and had only three images to stack:

Excellent. I especially like the first one. "My" camera, "my" lens! Hope I can do as well with the same equipment.

Really like the image quality produced by the 80D. It has replaced my 6D except for wide angle and TS-E lens use. But there are things I dislike. Sometimes the camera freezes, the only thing to do is take the battery out and put it back in again. Had the camera in for service but they send the camera back to me and says there is nothing wrong. Also the build quality is not good as 6D, 7D MK2 and 60D I have used. The grip on right side got some flex and "squeak" using heavy lens like 300L f/2.8, 400L f/5.6 and even the 85L. Nothing wrong they say so I think the all plastic design is the cause and normal.

Noted also there is no spring in the battery door(or cover?). I dont care about the spring but it clearly shows that Canon made some cost reduction.

Overall it is a fantastic camera though.

Feel sorry for you, you must have caught a bad one.

I've had mine for more than half a year now.

For me:

  • no freezing
  • carrying with the 100-400 II with the right hand side grip over a couple of hours so far is fine
  • spring in the battery compartment present and working
