"George Lepp’s Comments on the 7D II

George called BIRDS AS ART yesterday to order a copy of The Art of Flower Photography, the inspiring and instructive new eBook by Denise Ippolito and yours truly. Thinking that he was calling about shipping the 7D II I picked up the phone. He kept saying that he was paying and I kept telling him that he was not. I prevailed in the long run.
I asked George about the quality of the 7D II image files. He said, “You will love the camera and the image quality. The images are quite similar to those from the 5D Mark III.” Then I asked with some trepidation, “What about noise?” George replied, “The same as the 5D III.”
Wow, it is looking as if the 7D II might be a lightweight 1.6 crop factor body with 1D X AF and 5D III image quality and relatively low noise. I can’t wait!"

I hate to rain on your parade, but those are mutually exclusive attributes.

He works for or is given Canon gear to use. You think he's going to say anything but great things?

Just a few more weeks and we'll begin to see for sure. I do like what I'm reading in various places. My inner optimism meter is trending upward. :)

Either he is lying or is being deceitful, or he meant what he said, those are the only two options you have available.

no quite the contrary :rolleyes: we actually like it ( particularly those of us with an order in the system ) but the one small issue is these are comments by knowledgable camera savvy folk who have some association with canon so at this point they are not real world totally independent reviews by folk with no vested interest in there current or future association with canon - that does not mean to say they are not right but there has to be some element of doubt there !!!!

but It does seem that they all have one thing in common - lots of positives and not much negativity ( which is not surprising of course but then you feel some would slip the odd negative comment in there if they did perceive a real problem ) and so that is looking very promising :lol:
cheers rob
