The days of a good working 7DII are all but gone for me now.. There's a good chance I will not replace it with another. Mine is now so difficult to make changes on the game is long gone before the camera is ready for the shot.. Makes for a challenging day out, so for the most part I just don't go out, and that has my buddy's more than a little frustrated as well. It still shoots if the light is good enough to run something auto.. but ya know thats just not me.

Definitely frustrating when you're used to shooting full manual.
So are you going back to you old 7D until you find a replacement?

No Michael I'm not. I'm hoping to come up with a better plan. I'm going to give something else a try for a while see if anyone notices. I would like to make it through until Canon makes me something extraordinary  :p

I think you could use just about anything as long as ya have the time/good glass, you'll net great results.

Nobody can tell or has commented on a diminished in quality when I got rid of my 5dIV and am back to using the 70d :lol:

Sort of like the guy in the Miata that out-drives a lesser experienced person in a much faster M3 on the track... no replacement for seat time/experience.

I think your right Mark. I did notice your using the 70D. There are some things I would like to have on/in my camera.. but like you say, having the seat time is everything.
building your own skill set makes all the difference.

you could try an 80D, Im told files are very good, not sure about the rest of the specs. I often think of just using my 5DIII for everything but reach for me is very important and I have mobility issues with my ankles right now, so I take to just sitting and waiting with wildlife, its a pain. so far 7DII for me has been great but I dont think I've taken quite as many images as you :lol:

I really loved the 7DII, still do. It really was and is the poor mans 1Dx. I know lots of people still cling to the notion that the larger sensor's produce better images but if you look through a few threads here you begin to see the truth about real life wildlife imagery and just what can be produced with the APC sensor. It was very good to me and I await its successor. Hopefully its in the form of a full on 1Dx with a crop and buttons that can take a little mileage and use before they expire.

My first and my last 7DII's really out did themselves, They worked super well in lower light, terrible conditions for any camera, and the truth is those are the images people love the most. I never felt out guned standing beside any camera shooting wildlife.

I think I'm going to go back in time to a great camera and wait and see what comes out next for the future.

Mine's almost to the same point as yours, top wheel only registers 1 out of 3 clicks or so and the back wheel is going the same way. I've got a 7D to fall back on as well or the M5 for slow stuff but whatever is coming after the 7DII can't come soon enough.

How much would Canon charge to fix it?

O shoot Sid.. bummer. The thing is they replace the entire back or top of the camera... which I'm ok with just not sure its worth it on a camera with a ton of clicks on it.

I have to say I really tried to be super careful with mine after the first go round. I used it is all.. I know some will say wear parts... BUT my 7D is still working like clock work and Ive done in two 7DII"s now. If anything I think I was harder on the 7D buzzin that wheel around to look see and adjust.
