Thank you very much for checking this also. I tried it again and unfortunately I got similar results like before. I even set it to M without auto ISO. I tried with flicker detection on and off. None of them helped. I do not have red-eye reduction turned on.

I think I am just going to get 622c and try using that.

I'm sorry you're having trouble with it. It will be interesting to see if the radio wireless trigger solves the problem, or if it turns out to be the flash unit. I thought maybe it was the known issue a number of users have reported with Yongnuo 568s having inconsistent exposure used as bounce flash in E-TTL/evaluative, but since you mentioned direct flash that didn't seem to be it.


Some Canon stuff and a little bit of Yongnuo.

I'm already looking for ways to finance the new 100-400 (including selling my 400/5.6) to go with it!

This is usful info Rod, can you say at what focal length it transitions to just the centre 25?

Also my understanding was the out points are horizontal rather than not used at all, can you confirm that.

As noted in my original post I don't know the focal length when the change occurs. I will have to turn on the focal points so they are visible all the time then start zooming in to see the transition point. No doubt the change will coincide with the largest aperture available at the set focal length. Can't remember where max is 5.6 but if I remember correctly it drops to 6.3 around the 400mm mark.

Per illustrations the outboard point are still visible but are a transparent gray indicating they are still active but no longer 'x' type points.

It's so awesome that you can use the AF-ON and * buttons for completely different AF CASE settings. In combination with using the trigger, you can have a total of three completely different AF settings a single button push away....brilliant!

How are people finding the out of camera sharpness on this new camera? One of my issues with the copy I had of the 7D was that it could be a little bit soft wide open. This required more sharpening, which would increase image noise...

I'm hoping that the 7D Mark II is better in this regard. One of the things that instantly stuck out to me when I started using the Sony a7 was how much sharper images are SOOC. And that's using lenses that were all made in the 70's and 80's.

Mine seems sharper than the 7D.

thanks for the response.

I'm having trouble deciding between the 1D Mark IV and 7D Mark II. I am wanting to shoot mostly shorebirds and here in Florida this is easier to do than in some places, so focal limitations aren't as much of a limitation for me.

You should get cleaner photos and shallower DOF from the 1D4. There is much less reach advantage between the 2 cameras than comparing a FF camera to the 7D2. I have not used the 1D4 but have read there is about a 1 stop advantage on ISO.
