Finally managed to get a good shot today with my 7D2 so after all my complaining I figured I show it off :oops: Probably should have pushed the shutter speed up another bit. He ran away shortly after this shot was taken but I couldn't keep the focus point on him to get a good shot of the action.

settings: AI servo, F6.3, auto ISO @ 100, 1/1250 sec 70-300L @ 300, handheld, SOOC jpg as usual
pic was zoomed in to 50%, cropped and resized to 1024x768 for posting.

When I had a 6D and the original 7D as my main cameras, I found a lot more situations where the 6D was superior, because of the 7D's noise and slight banding, but now that I have a 7D2, I find much less use for the 6D. The 6D is going to mainly be for shooting f/1.4 lenses wide open, and getting the widest FOV out of my 8mm fisheye and 12-24mm zoom.

In any situation where I can get the same DOF and FOV with the 7D2, I don't feel that the 6D is superior in any way, unless the lens I would use on the 6D was sharper for it. The other day, I went to the museum, and before I went I put the 7D2, 10-22mm, and 17-55mm/2.8 IS on the floor together, and a bit away from them, the 6D, 12-24 Sigma, and 24-105L and looked them over for a couple of minutes, and put the 7D2 kit in my bag, and I did not regret it. I think the results I got with the 17-55/2.8 IS were as good, if not superior, to what I would have had with the 6D and the 24-105L. All I was missing was the extremes of FOV (12mm and 105mm on the 6D), but I never needed them. The 7D2 kit was much lighter than the other would have been.

The 17-55/2.8 IS seems to be sharper on the 7D2 than the 24-105L on the 6D at the same FOV and DOF.


Yeah, like I mentioned in my picture post, my first outing wasn't ideal but it gives me a good feel of what it's like going back to crop. After shooting the last 3 years with FF it is little noisier for sure. I'd shoot 2000iso all day in the same conditions with the 6D and not even think about a denoising in post. Noise at 1600 on the 7DMK2 is pretty apparent but workable.

The 7DMK2 was a blast to shoot and I can see why I read almost daily people saying that it's a body that gets them out in the field wanting to shoot. I can't wait to dive in a tinker with the plethora of settings. For me that's part of the joy of photography and what I have missed since moving from Nikon(nikon was loaded with menu options). The 6D was bare in this aspect.

The white bird a ptarmigan? Love it....nothing like that in my parts.
Pondrader I know eye level. On the hike in o find great greys I swear at times the snow was mid-thigh. At least it was in the woods and little wind....snowies were much more painful wind cold wise at 2F out in the open. In 2 weeks more openess though as we try for Darwin's Rhea.

Yep, the white bird is a ptarmigan. Saw three today but only managed to get a few sharp shots of this one.

I haven't forgotten the 7Dii :)
Speaking of a better beamer, I should have used one for this shot--it just doesn't fit well out the hole in the blind. If anyone knows this bird please tell me, he(she) is new to
the studio-

Medicineman, here's a flash bracket that should help when in a blind.
