Kites and vultures against a blue sky won't really tax the AF system, but do provide great test subjects for the different AF modes. You can see how each mode works using large soaring birds such as that one. Really like the mallard shot!

Thanks. I was guessing vulture but was not certain. The focus is a great improvement over the 40D, I'm easily impressed.

There certainly are a lot more af points than the 9 from the 40d, with a lot more coverage, that's for sure! I never shot too many bif with the 40d, but I have one I like. I had to use center point, I am sure.

One more from today. My biggest challenge in the morning was that all the birds and critters were on the west side of the road, so I was shooting into the sun a lot of times.

This is because birds and critters don't like photographers' silhouettes.

Yep I did. They just removed the kit lens out of the box from Teds.

I'm assuming Teds here in Oz? I bought mine, body only, from them on a pre-order collected Saturday (01Nov2014) our time. But mine was a genuniely body-only one. A body-only box, not a larger one with lens removed. I'd not really intended to buy from Teds but their price was OK (if not great) and they most certainly received the first stock I'm aware of down here. I have an actual use where it seemed nice to have the new camera, Real Soon Now, so paying a little extra to receive the camera sooner rather than later, and the chance to work with it beforehand, seemed worth paying a little extra.

They left the lens warranty card in my box. Even though I purchased the body only. I think I need to give that back when I go back there again.

A couple of shots from yesterday. It was very cloudy and the light was bad.

Most of the migrating birds are gone from here and my usual hot spot is very quite.

Wow, I was trying to be quiet on this one . . . but jeez! :p You don't have to put down the guys that have posted pictures THE FIRST DAY with the camera (and yes, that's the way it came across, whether if you meant it or not). And for those of us that shoot outside (birds, sports, etc) environmentals kinda make a difference - we can't guarantee that the first day with the camera will be just perfect!

Now to answer your questions about other than ISO - the autofocus is equal to a 1DX in speed, tracking and accuracy. It's a generation ahead of a 1DIII or IV.

Menu's and ease of use is equal to a 5D III or a 1DX. If you have a 1DX and your not looking for the advantage of crop factor - stick with your 1D.

And that is why i said in first line "I hope this camera can have more hands with professionals and semi-pros".

I thought all here are using nice bodies before 7DII, even some are using 1DX or 1D4 or 1D3, so they shouldn't take ages to have those high quality shots, i am sure if i hold this camera first time, i will do amazing from first shot in sports i shoot without waiting learning curve or time to get used to it, what is there to learn about it anyway?

Thanks Mark. I'm hoping for BIFs today. The weather is so much better.

And for everybody that's on this forum to nit pick every little pixel. Just go out and shoot! Cheers!

Can't say I'm excited about the camera based on what's been available for viewing so far across the web. I don't see any difference in the images from the older 7D.

I shot 400 images during that football game and had 3/4 battery left. I did not have GPS enabled though.
