well absolutely top class :D- what distance and lens was that with ? - id be hanging on to that 7d mk 2 if I was you - not getting anything like that level of detail and sharpness with mine right now hence the query re the lens used and I am beginning to think its a bit of a lottery as to what you may get from the 7d mk2 at this stage :rolleyes: but just my opinion - so far I reckon I have have only seen about 3 or 4 really great sharp and in focus shots including yours and the racing horse shots , two or three very very good shots including the butterfly and the fox and maybe the deer in the forest and a good few maybe not too bad but a bit light on for the small important detail
cheers

Thanks, Parol50. I used the camera with 300 IS II + 1.4 TC III. It was about maybe 10-12 feet and the first 2 images were uncrop. I like to sneak up to bird and fill the frame with subject. I am keeping this camera, like I said, some others have problem, but mine is great.

+1 The first shot is very cool! I like the P51 shot a lot also. :-)

Thanks,

Thank you, the 10 fps sure help to nail this one.

Thanks,

SOFT, sorry for the typo.

Canon said it will be 5 to 7 business day to repair it. So I am still waiting to hear back.

I shot these below shots with 300mm IS II + 1.4 TC III. 1/1000 sec, F8. I focused on the bird and looks like the whole body was out of focus. I probably will have to adjust it a little bit for front focus.

I also have problem with DPP software that came with the camera. It doesn't work with OSX Yosemite. I finally had to download it from Canon website, they updated on Nov 4th, and it works well. I don't know much about DPP, but LR doesn't support it yet and I shoot 99% RAW so it will have to do for now.

Focusing on the 7D Mark II is not as good as the 1DX or 5D Mark III. But the burst speed kind of make up for it. I am very please to have it as a back up body or when I rather travel light and don't want to lug my 1DX and 600mm lens with me.

These shots maybe front focus or if you are using single point with expanded ( center point plus four surrounding points the camera may have just grabbed the leaf due to better contrast. The one advantage I love on on my 1D4 is the ability to set center point plus right and left point expanded which I find works better in situations such as this. Sometimes having all points around a center point is problematic when areas around the intended target have more contrast than your subject. This is where a proper lens calibration system can help sort out your problems.

Just ping'd CPS on when the 7DII will be able to be registered. I know some people have tried it as a 7D only and seem to have gotten it to register, but I wonder if they will have a different point value for the mk II.

It would appear that a number of new 7D II users are experiencing post-purchase remorse regarding their newly acquired camera. As has been discussed in many threads and photo boards on the Net, photographers make great images and not fancy, expensive new gear. Surprisingly, many think that if I just have the newest whiz-bang camera, Nat Geo will beat down my door wanting my shots. Well, that doesn't happen in the real world.

This camera has now become a very complicated beast which many don't appreciate. A friend of mine dismissed friendly advice and stated that he'll skip reading the manual because he had a 7dc and how much different could the new camera be.

If you have bad technique, no critical eye for good composition, don't understand light and don't know the features and finctions of the camera in detail, then a "new firmware release from Canon" won't help.

+1.

Here are a few shots with this body showing wonderful detail.

I am starting to believe this body performs best with Canon's lenses. It may be the pixel density and new AF algorithms really need superb optics and the quickest lens AF to get the most out of this body.

Plus Adobe RAW processing for the 7D2, most peeps don't like DPP.

I e-mailed them last week and they said they have no announced date yet for it to be in the listings. My 7D Mark I is now only worth 5 points and my 400/5.6 is worth 8, so I suspect the Mark 2 will be worth quite a bit more. The 70-200/2.8 II is worth 12, so my guess is the 7D Mark 2 will be in the 10 range.

Very interested to see how the new 100-400 with 1.4x will do. Dec 29 can not get here fast enough.

These are excellent images taken by a very competent photographer who understands his equipment and makes the best use of it. The Canon 500L II is a great lens btw.

I could not agree with you more. I own the 600mm II and all Canon glass so I have been interested to see how people in the real world with no affiliation with Canon are doing with this body. Just from my own observations I think the pixel density and the AF algorithms are very demanding on lens choice and good technique and any weak link is magnified exponentially on a very dense MP sensor.

Yeah, and I'll be the first to admit I'm not the greatest there :) The weather at the moment (SNOW!!! AAAH!!) is not NOT helping!

Yeah...I think I have seen some really good shots with the Sigma 120-300 too. I really like that lens. Totally out of my price point though, I wish Canon had something similar, being able to put a 2x tele on it and get 240-600 f/5.6 is amazing flexibility.

Swapped my 1D4 for the 7D2 without regret. AF is way better, more detail due to higher pixel density and iso is not too far behind. No issues so far. Happy owner!

7D2 500mm f/4 IS II + 1.4x III 1/1600 f6.3 iso 400, about 50% crop.

I also ordered the 7DMII as well. I emailed B&H asking if they would be able to match the Adorama promotion of the free camranger. After a few hours they emailed me back stating that they would be able to. So this morning finished up the order on the phone, confirmed my information, and done.

Rep stated that they would send it expedited, though still don't have a tracking number yet. Placed another order with them 20 minutes after I got off the phone, received confirmation that one had shipped. So I'm hoping that I get it tomorrow along with the bag that I ordered, otherwise I'll have to come in on my day and pick up the box.
