You know...I don't believe I've ever seen an in-flight capture of a Burrowing Owl before. Nice one, Kester!

Yes, they are small and very fast fliers. The 7D2's focus was quick, would have been better if I could have kept the focus points on them. :)

Just received my 7d mark ll, using it tomorrow for 2 Football games, pretty excited. compared to my 60d and 6d having 65 focus points is a whole new game for me.

It's certainly lighter, has a good walk around range, Not sure if I'll keep it, may sell it off with one of my 7d's. How's the sharpness, have you used it much?

Sharpness of 18-135/7DII: Very good on my computer screen, but look blurry once uploaded here... f8, 1/250th

This is ISO800 without any NR.
RAW conversion via DPP 4.1.1. Touch of sharpening via LR5.6 after the conversion.

I love this camera.

Quick question #1 - did anyone get a hard copy of the Quick reference guide in the box?

Quick question #2 - are people having trouble with DPP 4.1.1 crashing?

Thanks

Mike

I've not installed it yet. I possibly, perhaps probably, even will. But I've dealt with DPP before and my enthusiasm hasn't yet risen to the occasion (as it were). For my purposes (prints to A4/Letter size) the JPEGs have been good enough that I haven't fealt like bearing the pain of DPP so far.

Please, Mr Adobe, provide before my needs make me bear the pain!

I've been tinkering with the freebie DPP and find it's not bad at all, learning curve like everything but why not? Plenty of tut's on youtube to boost one along.

OK, so here's a completely different question. About something I don't (yet) have a proper feel for. But after 185 exposures (so many!) I'm starting to get the impression that the evaluative metering in the 7DmkII is especially good. Without even thinking about it, while mostly messing around trying to figure out the AF, I've somewhat missed the fact that I have hardly any badly exposed photos. Even slightly badly exposed photos. Every shot I've taken so far (aside from some deliberately experimental ones, where I've forced the exposure to be 'wrong') seems well exposed.

If what I'm seeing is real, rather than something that's "just happened" by pure luck, is this not something of an un-heralded advantage of the new camera?

Thoughts?

...Mike

I believe it's due to the new IR and RGB metering system, it is very useful for better WB analysis, exposure, and probably AF as well. Not sure about AF, but IR aware sensors can help with AF if utilized properly, IR can see things that are quite difficult in the visible spectrum. I believe the system does work with Live view stills and movie AF.
