Here are a few samples from last weeks' test outing with my newly acquired 7D Mark II body... It did relatively well with AF speed and focus lock... If there were any blurred images (slightly or completely), I'd say it was 99.9% user error (ME)!!! Hehehe... Anyhoo... All captured with my 7D2 + 400 2.8L II 'non-IS' combo... The last image was with a Kenko Pro DGX 2x TC for 800mm of FOV goodness (1,280mm if you add the crop)... Enjoy the captures...

Enjoy the new body!

Some great shots. Very good focus especially considering non-IS. I also see you do not use a gimbal mount. Obviously on a tripod though?

Curious as to the crop from original on each photo.

Thanks

I don't know anything about bird (or wildflife ;) ) photography, but to me that is some damn fine work (especially no. 2)! Nice job!

Thanks everyone for the encouraging comments... Much appreciated, as I rarely go bird/BIF shooting... And to gdeloach, I did use a tripod with Jr Gimbal to support the heavy lens... Thanks for asking...
