According to imaging resources review, it does f/8 focus on center point.

Thank you

Only time will tell. That said, I don't recall having issues with my 7D at low ISO, and only seeing some of it if I started pushing shadows beyond what they should be pushed. Expose better in the field and you'll have less problems.

Remember, 7D (and 7D2 now) were never designed with landscape photography as primary focus. The camera specs (8/10 fps, 19/65 AF points, 100+/1000+ jpg buffer, etc...) were all geared more towards action. Pick the right tool for the job to save yourself some headache in post.

This. So many people expect the newest camera to leapfrog everything that went before. Canon (just like the other companies) has a product line instead of just one camera - for a reason. Pick the camera that suits your needs. If you can afford to change your complete camera system every time one company gains a slight advantage, you are going to spend more time buying and selling than taking pictures. My 7D is in my hands now and has taken thousands more pictures than your 7D2. If, or when, it stops doing what I need, I will look around for an upgrade. People need to get out and use their tools instead of fretting about the advantage that latest greatest tool may give them.

Now let's see those pictures. End of rant.

People complaining about the megapixel count...10fps. There is a trade off between resolution and speed. I also think that the dual pixel AF is making it a bit harder for Canon to cram in more pixels, since technically each pixel is actually two independent photo sensing points.

Or do you think that the Sony sensors have it over the Canon sensors. A number of photographers do.

People complain all the time. 7DmkII is crop camera, there is no need for more mepapixel count.

example : shooting lowlight concert with 70-200, still not enough reach on 5dmkIII and can´t crop much on higher ISO numbers anyway. Any modern crop camera do the better job, because of 1.6 factor with minimum noise penalty, i have FOV what i need without additional cropping = more details, less noise.


Thanks to that, 7DmkII will be amazing for wildlife and sports and very hard to beat.

10fps with 31 RAWs for the record, the D7100 does NOT come in the same ballpark as that at 9 RAW files, Thats just pathetic.. So you get 1.5 seconds of burst and THEN what...

Was going to slam it but im waiting to see the IQ.. need to go find the other 7D II threads

I wonder if Canon will do a firmware update in 2018 and boost the buffer to 62 RAW...

If it can get to ISO 12800 without looking ropey, this might be the upgrade path rather than the 6d just because of that AF system.

Little confused why you would need 4 stop recovery from any sensor, ND grad filters are cheaper than any sensor. Other than Landscape dynamics, I can't think of any situation that needs that amount of recovery, I think most people who make such a large metering mistake just curse at themselves and delete the picture...

But the extra reach is nothing, I never understood the hype of Crop Vs Full Frame Reach. I went from a 70D to a 6D and i will gladly say the reach difference is like half a inch on the image, I even put a 1.4x Extender on the 70D and the difference is again, hardly anything and for what it cost ($500), it's a waste of money.

I thought about getting the 7D Mark II for Wildlife but i might just keep the 6D as Image Quality will be better. But i do want to see RAW samples at High ISO, It's looking like the 70D ISO performance but it might be a stop better.

Architecture, windows brighter than the interior. Or for example a skyscraper with top of the building being brightly lit and the street level being dim. There are a couple of situations in which a sensor with good DR can avoid the need to resort to HDR.

where are the samples ?
any samples from canon web site ?

A bit concerning that the highest ISO used on the Canon website samples is 2500.

usually the high ISO images take a bit longer, at least they have in the past. Gotta put up just the right one as we all know that it's easy to shoot at high ISO but always challenging to get something that looks good.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.
