It is an avid birders site, I pulled up the link at work. Just birds in the wild shots.

I think if I had to pick a camera that was least likely to be competition to the 7d2 it would be the 6d. Great low light high ISO, poor AF and slow FPS, about as different target audience as two high dollar cameras can have.

...

Which makes them a pretty good pairing in a photographer's arsenal.

This thread is becoming euphemism heavy (if you don't know what Conkers are that is)

Popular Photography Magazine's online site has a number of 7DII samples at various ISOs, up to 16000 -

I don't think there were any conker shots, however.


Some Canon stuff and a little bit of Yongnuo.

I asked this question in another thread but I will also ask here if anyone can tell me if this is going to work similar to the 1DX or is this going to work even when AF-on is engaged like on my 1D4.

My guess would be more like in the 5D3. 1D4 is now consider an outdated AF system, I don't think Canon would ever going back. Whatever the option that are available in the 7D2, I think it would be extremely close to 5D3.

I want to make sure the AF point stays illuminated even when AF on is engaged. From what I understand that is not the case on the 5D3. Does this exact option appear on the 5D3 or 1dx?

I'm not sure what you mean by that, the AF point illumination option is on page 103 & 104.

There is an option for the VF to display (black outline) on all AF points/selected. And the option to select the illumination. The black outline if choose for select or all, will stay on while the camera is turn on. The illumination is only a flashed during the AF acquisition if select on or auto(low light). There is no option for the servo.

Right now, only the 1DX and the soon to come 7D Mark II has a setting for illuminated AF points during servo AF, together with the transluctent LCD overlay in the viewfinder.

Older cameras could illuminate the AF points, but then the drawback was that everything you saw in the viewfinder was etched on the screen, so such a highly dynamic viewfinder information scheme as can be seen in the 7D Mark II was completely conkers. Impossible, I mean impossible!

I have my 5D3 set up right now so that if I hit the DOF preview button, it briefly illuminates the active AF point for me so that I know where to put that point before I hit AF ON in AI Servo. That helps a little, otherwise in the dark, you are flying blind as to where your AF point is.
