Okie Dokie. I know you put a lot more miles on than I do with my gear so I can't relate to some of it. NJ service has been good to me regarding tune ups.

because we're sick of the 7DII.. thats Why. I've never had one that wasn't broke. I'm hoping the 1D something I pickup is more capable as a wildlife camera when it comes to AF and durability of buttons and wheels. I pumped this camera up and it has done some good stuff but yes I'm ready for something new.

Having no luck with the numbers but am still trying, Jeff. ;)

Warning!!! Those of you with a vivid imagination, clear the likely provoked image that this description may provide, from your mind :-) I thought that I might try this next time I want some bait for fishing :-)

The Bassian Thrush is often difficult to see, as it is an unobtrusive species that forages among dense vegetation. When disturbed, it sometimes crouches on the ground and freezes, relying on its plumage to conceal its presence. The bassian thrush directs a stream of flatulence toward the site of a worm find. The gas apparently disturbs the worm and provokes movement. The otherwise ordinary-looking thrush is then able to effectively locate the worm and grab it for a quick meal.

It's just frustrating to always have something broke on your camera. My old 7D is still going strong no problems what so ever. Wish the 7DII was a little more like that. Hard to run manual when the top wheel does what ever it wishes. I'm stuck using auto iso more than I like. So it's changed the way I shoot as well as lowering my image IQ. But hey that's the fun of shooting wildlife.

3 file stitch with 1.4 III at 560mm. First time I ever tried stitching. Thinking about just using that instead of a WA lens for now.

Yeah after reading so many whom have owned several canons complain about the 7d2, and the returns to canon for fixes, I said, no thanks! Went from 5d3 to 5d4, as I already have a 70d collecting dust and have never been excited about the image quality, but it's fine as a backup camera.

Lets hope that whole new DO lenses also come with a 7d3 with the on chip updates otherwise I think even more will jump ship by the end of next year.

Two years ago Mark it was a great camera and I liked shooting it, but its been a battle owning it. I'm just ready for a new challenge I guess.

I too have been playing with the panning shot, I made it a bit of a tongue in cheek thing by using the 12 meg pix camera in the iPhone Se... just for fun really

A quick question. I am sure a lot of you guys had the 1st version that you probably sold. What is a good price to ask for it. I figure I won't ever use it again and might as well sell it.

I sold my excellent condition copy from 2008 for $700 in May. The v2 really killed the resale value on the v1.
