For those still looking to buy... Just saw Adorama is now bundling a free cam ranger with the 7dII KIT!
Wish my salesman would have given me that info since I just bought one from them. ��

Call them!

The camera that I have been using since 2009 its the 5dMII. I was planning to buy something more "modern/new" so I was thinking on getting the D1x (I'm used to full frame) but I went for 7DMII. I was looking for a camera that is weather proof, more than 4 FPS and a better AF. After playing around with the 7DMII all I can say is WOW!!! The AF is instantaneous compare to 5dMII, very quite and feel nice on my hands and I saved $4,000... I saw a few post that say that there is no big difference but I guess that is relative to which machine you are upgrading from. I didn't like the classic 7D past ISO 800 but this new 7DMII @ ISO 3200 is very good so Lady 5DMII will not come out of the bag if the subject is moving. So far I like what I see but I need Adobe to send a patch to be able to play with the RAW file.

Heading over to the Huntington Botanical Garden and Library, here in SoCal... Armed with the 7D2, 200 1.8L, and a couple of accessories.... My objective for today comes in two folds; macro photography and bokeh compositions... Macro you say?! I also brought my Kenko Tubes, as well the 200's 48mm drop-in CPL filter... Findings, analysis, and results forthcoming...

:)

Our oldest son lives in S. California. The last time we were out there, he took us to the Huntington Library/Gardens..... what an amazing place. I look forward to your photographs.

Former 5dm2 owner here... I was extremely disappointed with the AF system on it. It was about the time Nikon started releasing FF bodies with a ton of AF points and all we got was 9.

Mine arrived today and I will try to post photos soon.

For bird photogs - are you using the same settings that you had on the 7d? Wonder if anyone has found some tweaks yet?

Hate having to shoot in jpg mode until codecs come out... and ETA on them?

After watching the Rudy Winston video one more time, I changed the setting for AI Servo Priority for first and second image to focus. Focus speed is already like lightning on my 7Dii, I don't mind it slowing down a bit to make sure the focus is sharpest. Even if the 10 fps slows down a bit, I'm OK with that. Sharp is more important than quick shutter release to me. I have no clue how it is going to work, testing continues this weekend.

Have your read this guidebook? http://learn.usa.canon​.com …os7dmk2_afGuide​book.shtml (external link)

I am using an updated version of DPP 3 to process RAW, more user friendly than DPP4, imho.

Okay, I'm bored at the office and probably won't to get to shoot anymore until gameday Saturday. So, here are a couple of more photos from last Saturday but at a little lower ISO than the others I posted.

Standard DXO DRivel. Who knows what the weighting is on their final score. They have 4/3 and 1" sensor cameras as better than the 7D2. I seems to me that their weighting is biased to low ISO DR. Nothing that I am worried about.

Overall scores are for people who don't like to make their own decisions.

Correct, center focus point only @ f/8.

That's if the camera knows that the lens is f/8. If it is an >f/5.6 lens or lens/TC combo that reports f/5.6, the camera will use all AF points, but of course, with less AF certainty (speed and/or accuracy may suffer).

You can, of course, select spot, single point, or single+4 if you want to use only points designed for lenses greater than f/5.6.

A 2x converter costs you 2 stops of light, so f/4 lens with the 2x gives you f/8!

A very nice feature they added.

I don't see a TC as "losing light". You lose to a larger f-number (slower, hunting, or cancelled AF and a dark viewfinder) , and you lose in terms of maximum exposure with the same shutter speed, but the light from the subject is lessened in local intensity, but spread over a larger area, for the same net subject light (except the slight losses due to TC imperfections).

It definitely is a gorgeous place... I just stayed at the 'Desert/Cactus' section of the HL Gardens... Worked on bokeh, Kenko 2x TC's, Kenko 36mm Tubes, and a combination of both... Can't wait to share my captures with y'all...

Thanks for this, Mike!!!

Finally got to go out today ...IMO, ISO800 is like ISO2000 on the 6D, but easy to clean up. I have to work on my handholding/BIF technique :D
