All i was saying is the difference between Crop and Full Frame reach is Minimal, Same thing with Extenders and my point was why waste the money on it. Again, when i went from my 70D to the 6D, I was shocked at the difference in reach, It's was literally nothing. Go Full Frame and never look back, just my two cents.

I guess I'm a bit confused. You see virtually no difference when shooting your 300 f/4L on the 70D and your new 6D? If my math is correct, the field of view would be quite a bit different, i.e., about 180mm different.

Perhaps, the subject matter has to taken into account. My intention is not to correct you. It's just that I concentrate on wildlife, especially birds. It might matter more to me than to you.

What?

I had a 6D, spent a whole weekend only photographing birds if it and then did the same back with my 7D. The IQ and noise were really incredible IF i didn't have to crop images because I had "lost" about 60% the crop factor reach. If I had a 600mm or maybe a 500mm lens this wouldn't be a problem, but using a 300mm 2.8 even with TC it did not delivered the quality I wanted.

I must be in the minority, I think moon shots are pretty easy. It always looks the same, other than the phases, and it simply comes down to long glass and proper exposure (think sunny). It is a great shot however, and the first good one to start the thread rolling along. :)

Ouch, page 142 - to achieve max shooting speed with a 100-400L you have to have IS disabled and only work in one-shot mode, looks like it cannot do servo with that lens and still burst so fast or run IS (of course, at 1/1000 shutter as the minimum shutter speed for 10fps, you probably don't need it on anyway..) Wonder if that is an indicator that the 100-400 is soon to be upgraded to a new version that is compatible.

I wonder if something similar will happen with the Tamron 150-600mm too? Anyone know?


Call me Amanda please :)

Could be... I certainly missed it. :D Some people actually do have a lot of problems with moon shots though. It is almost always exposure issues, since they think moon = night = low light = high ISO and long shutter speeds... :)

I pre-ordered mine and according to amazon who is fulfilling it on behalf of Canon, it will be November 3rd before it gets here, even though I paid for next day shipping :-( Not Amused!!

I have tried everything possible to locate one at a local level. Hell, Id even drive a couple hours to find one, but so far can't find anyone who sells them in store

There is a thread discussing shipment and delivery of the 7D2.It started out about Best Buy but has morphed into a general discussion.

What was the date and time of your amazon order email? My order was showing a Nov 3 delivery and then changed to Oct 31. My order was placed:
Mon, 15 Sep 2014 07:26:32 -0700 (PDT)

Has your credit card been charged? That was my first indication that the shipping processes was getting started. I don't have a shipping confirmation yet or tracking # but am hopeful for tomorrow. :)

Regardless, I hope amazon comes through for you or you find a local source for the camera.

I wish i had an example, scrolling through my pictures now to find one but to me the difference is like half an inch to me realistically viewing the picture on a screen. So yes, not really a difference and prefer the 6D because of it. Better IQ.

I'm guessing that you are not focal length limited and framing the image the same if you are not seeing any difference.


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