Those train pix are really really nice. I love looking at these because I have no children or grandchildren left. Brings a warm feeling to my old ticker. Thank you for the opportunity :-)

Regarding your pigeon, where did the AF point land? If not toward the end of the wing/ tail, you are having some front focus? If toward the head, try some plis Mfa.

I should have made clear that I was only producing a few images to check the work flow with DPP. You are quite right the focus point was on the wing not the head so hopefully poor technique rather than a focusing problem. I'm hoping to get out today to check the camera more thoroughly.

Right click on the photo in DPP and click on info or I believe it is in edit you can click on info and it will bring up a window wll the EXIF data in it.

Don't you find this a tad unusual? When I was discussing my camera with my vendor and he actually stated the 7D2 is not as sharp as the 7D. I said "not as sharp" and he corrected this saying it needed more sharpening.

You may have seen him. He was in a 7D2 video produced by The Camera Store in Calgary.

This is brutal. This was supposed to quote your comment that this body needs more attention to MFA than normal. I'm in the wilderness on a mobile and not in my element.

Sorry about that.

Nice shots. Congrats on the successful AFMA. AFMA seems to be very important with this camera.

I think it is part of the greater number of pixels causing the need. It might also have to do with the faster reacting AF.

Anybody using a Sigma lens with the 7D2? If so how's it working? I ask because my Sigma 150-500 still has focusing issues.


My Sigma 150-500 is doing great. Without MFA.

My other lenses need a small amount of MFA

It is very possible and I did think that at first. Not sure going from 18 to 20 makes that much difference and I'm not sure how that could affect focus needing MFA that much. Why can't that be set at the factory? I know I was very careful to be extra steady because extra pixels. We'll see. Maybe I'll be eating crow in the next few days.

Hmmmmm. , mine still has a hard time focusing at full zoom. If I go from 150 to 500 then hit the shutter button or back button too focus it won't lock on. It just hunts then stops. I've chnged the settings from keep hunting to stop hunting, either one doesn't help any. Any ideas?

Well glass is not the best to shoot through but I have shot through dirty thick zoo glass and got some pretty decent shots. What lens did you use, what was the DOF and how far were you from the bird? I'd like to determine your total DOF.

Look very closely at the birds foot and it is not in focus. Now follow down the top of the head of of the statue. When it gets to the the top of the forehead it is much sharper. It starts to sharpen up about half way. I'm not sure if the focus point on the feathers is behind or before where the image starts to sharpen. Personally I don't think the feathers are in perfect focus which is making the head look OOF. Of course this depends on your total DOF. I could be wrong but I'd like to figure it out.

Is there a place to activate "Image Editing OK" like on the old forum? I don't see it on my posts or other members and could not find it on my home page.

It's not available with the new look. I saw in the AMASS question thread that people should either say it's OK when posting an image or, if they didn't, to message them and get their OK.


Some Canon stuff and a little bit of Yongnuo.

I agree DP, it looks like the sharpest focus is on the very end of the wings and across the tail which to my eyes looks to be on the same plane as the lower part of the forehead on the statue. If so, then some MFA (+1 or +2) to correct forward focusing should improve the situation.

Cheers
Gus
