Are any of you shooting semi-pro/pro video with the Canon 7D mk II? If so how have you liked it? Any links of your work?

I've been studying and buying a few pieces of equipment over the past month to determine how well the 7Dii does for wildlife videography. Initially, I was looking for a video camera, but not knowing what to look for, decided to give the DLSR a try. Shot a few short clips of geese at a good distance yesterday. Had a 1.4 converter on a 100-400v1 lens on a tripod with video head. I don't use the converter with that lens when shooting stills, but thought it might be ok for video. The image quality was very good IMO. As you can imagine, I had a difficult time keeping the image steady at that focal length. My only editting software is LR5 at this point. It was shot with Canon's Standard Picture Style, 100 ISO, 1080/30fps-all-I. 1/60 shutter. It looked fine on my laptop monitor, but when I connected to TV screen, it looked over saturated, so I turned down the saturation a bit. https://vimeo.com/1906​51836 (external link)

May I ask - can you shoot video just using the viewfinder or do you have to use the live view/screen as in the Mk1? Thanks.

Must use live view.
