Hi looking for some advice would the following camera be ok for deer photography with the 100-400 mkii lens. Very reluctant to go with 70D or 7d mkii due to (some focusing problems,) which my friend has with his 70D, reason being I can not handle stress very well
Many Thanks for help
It'll work. Probably not ideal. But it will work.
70D and 7D2 are superior in every way. There shouldn't be any focus problems with the 400 MKII with them, other than the rogue/fluke chance which maybe your friend encountered. The beauty is you can try the pairing and if it's not to your liking return it--no stress.
I'd frankly go for a used 7D over the 760D, if nothing else, for the FPS and aggressive AF. If you're shooting still deer in a field from a blind, you can use anything frankly (especially from a tripod). But if your'e trying to capture some action, like bucks doing their thing, or some running, FPS really can help grab the moments that cannot be timed, by simply getting most of it.
