I got a try out today but the weather changed to cloud so still not had a good day out yet.

Have to say my thoughts are I like this camera a lot the reach over full frame is the big plus to me.

The EXIF from this camera on Flickr when you have it in all points tracking is hilarious...

Nice, did you need spot AF to keep it from trying to hit the cage?

I used a cluster of AF points and moved them around as needed, always making sure they fit within one of the holes in the cage. I really had to work to keep things in focus. Overall though, I'm very happy with how it handled everything.

Here's another one.

Do you use the first shot (half press/AF button) as a sighting auto focus point (ie through the mesh) and then let the AF take over using one of the clever 'case 1-5' settings? I am guessing that it can be made to ignore the big focus jump to the close mesh, or am I taking rollocks as usual?

Adorama has it, along with free overnight shipping.

Thanks for the info. I cancelled my B&H replacement order and ordered one from Adorama. From the some guy at Adorama who I ordered my original 7D from!

I didn't pay any attention when I received my 7D2 from B&H, but when I started packing it in the same box I received it in, to return it to B&H a week ago today, I noticed that the outer shipping box had a hole poked clear thru it, and the outer box was only about one inch larger than the Canon box, with no padding on three sides, and only one of those air pillows on the fourth side. And the pillow was on the side with the hole, and the pillow was punctured. Normally I dodn't worry about things like that, as long as the product performs up to expectations. I notified B&H and sent them pics of the box and packaging.

At that time, my friend hadn't received his 7D2, and I hadn't read many reports online of folks having trouble with their 7D2. So I suspected that mine had been damaged in shipping. I now do not believe that is the case. I now believe there is a bad batch of 7D2's out there.

Disappointing if that is the case - Canon's QA should be tighter than that on final validation of the camera since it is something that seems to be pretty obviously wrong. You would think the initial batches would get some extra care too - all it takes is one bad internet rumor and it can hurt the product's reputation for a long time.

All that outer box is good for is to protect the 7D2 box, not the 7D2 itself. You could ship the 7D2 out in its own box, it is packed well enough inside. The camera is in a bubble wrapper suspended in the box with cardboard inserts. It is almost always the case that products are packaged well enough in their own boxes, that you could ship them as-is, and the only reason to have an outer box with yet more styrofoam and bubble wrap is to protect the product box.

The 7D2 AF system is complicated enough that anybody not coming from a 5D3 or 1D series should take some time going through the manual and Canon documentation online. The AF system has many different settings and configurations across what, something like 3 or 4 AF menus? One improper setting somewhere for what you are shooting can cause issues.

Not that there isn't a problem, but this always happens that folks don't completely grasp an AF system such as this, coupled with lens behavior and AFMA, and the first conclusion is that there is a bonafide issue. There are enough professionals that have tried out the 7D2 to have no issues, but they also all have 1D series, or the 5D3.

Yeah, I would also sometimes think that - but there seemed to be some experienced people with 5D3s and the like that were reporting (and showing here) some pretty large variances shot to shot - it shouldn't shift from back to on to front, and the AI servo shouldn't "rock" back and forth against a static target.

There is certainly a learning curve on this one, you could say it is the most complex AF system Canon has ever made, and these dense crop sensors are not very forgiving when it comes to subject motion to keep things sharp.

Any of you 7DM2 owners also happen to also have the Sigma 18-35 1.8? Thinking of getting the M2 and one of the lenses that I'm thinking of is the Sigma since I do a ton of shooting with a 35/50 prime, the 18-35 gives an equivalent in that range. Thanks!
