OTTER revisited.
there has been debate whether Don's earlier posted Otter was sharp or not.

I downloaded and did some quick PP on the original. SHown here are the original from Don, PP'ed version, and 100% crop from the PP version.

I am curious whether the PP improves some of the perceived sharpness to Don's original which was very minimal crop and level?

I am liking this camera on my 200-400 1.4X better than that lens with my 5D Miii.

Very nice - I really like the owl. :-)


Some Canon stuff and a little bit of Yongnuo.

The 400mm DO II arrived today, first shot (with a 2.0 TC) and of course it would be a rainy, drab, cold, miserable day:

Looks pretty good with the 2x? Was the AF really slow with the 2x?

That St.Kitts pirate is serious!

Love the red-tailed----me jealous (again).

Butterfly take everything I say with a grain of salt; I'm just too new to this 'level' of gear but to me the AF with the 2.0 was very fast. It did hang a couple of times making me move the field of view (sorry I don't know all the terms) to something with more contrast for it to lock on, but I've had to do the exact same with my 300mm F2.8 with the 2.0 TC attached. I will remind it was a crap day. Now if there is anything about the DO II that I'd rave about is the 'wieldability'. It is light and compact. My first thought about it was 'blunderbuss' in regards to its shape/form.
I did hold at arms length the 7Dii with the bare DO II attached and loved it. I thought back to when I had the Sigma 120-300 and how after a day of getting it in and out of small planes/boats/cars I'd be whipped. And I can't look at the DO II and not think of the master of wieldability-the 400mm 5.6 and happy I upgraded the 400mm in my life. Seems to me I loose litttle of the 5.6's sharpness (and I haven't even delved into the bare lens yet, that will be tomorrow when the Sun returns) but gain a whole stop of light, and as mentioned above I still retain the ability (important at my age and joint condition) to move not only the lens but me with it and over long periods of time. Though old and worn out were still active, this was a couple of weeks ago, you might get a kick out of it:

Finally made it through all 212 pages while waiting for my 7D2 to be delivered.

Many great images spread over the pages.

Hoping, probably in vain, for some decent weather over the weekend so I can take the 7D2 out for a test run.

Additional good news is that I will be getting one of the 20,000 free battery grips on offer from Canon in Japan, but due to demand, it won't arrive until mid-January.

Thanks again to everyone who's posted images, hopefully I can post a few in the future.

Something else I'd like you guys/gals to chime in on.
In the field I CANNOT tell if I have a sharp image. For the cardinals I had to head to the house, load the pics into LR or CS6 and zoom in.
This trying to 'see' my results in the field on the back LCD.
When I first got the 7Dii I was shooting in the field and aghast at the results on the LCD-----when I got home I relaxed when I saw the shots were fine.

Here's what I'm thinking that I bought an el cheapo screen protector. So if any of you concur please suggest a good one.
I also use a LCD loupe/Hoodman that has been great on my 5Diii and 6D.

I think I should at least be able while out there to get decent feedback on whether I'm close or not.

Completely different topic.
I just read Roger Cicala's tear-apart review of the 7Dii. Maybe, just maybe this will be the first camera I've ever had that I don't have to run in fear once the rain starts. I was super impressed he took the time/effort to dissect the body. For that, when I need a lens rental I'm headed his way; that's just a huge service he did for us.

Just got from a couple of days away on biz, so sorry if this reply is superseded.

My understanding is what you see on the camera monitor is the downsampled jpeg that is embedded in the RAW file or the start of the jpeg file. It is not the full resolution image. So attempting to judge critical focus with it is probably not worth it.

The bokeh on that looks great, I would not have realised it was a DO lens. Congratulations on the lens BTW.

That 100% crop has plenty of sharpness to me. The placement of the DOF looks like it would be where photographer wanted it too.

Congrats on the new camera.

I couldn't help but notice, you've been around for a while but haven't posted much. Jump right in. The POTN crowd is overwhelmingly friendly and supportive.

I look forward to hearing how much you love your new 7D 2 and seeing the results from your outings.

Ok got all caught up.

Weather here is still terrible, all of my shots are indoors and of the kids and stuff lately - which I did get some very nice shots of the kids in front of the tree. Also used it in a gym with flicker shooting ON and it did a great job (was also using a flash for some parts).

Interesting review on DPR. I do wonder if they messed at all with the Case settings when making their comments about iTR and tracking being slow. I wonder if a different case setting (more responsive and more locked on) would have helped in the situations they are talking about.
