I had the opportunity this weekend to use the Mark II in a venue where I have extensively used the Mark I

My thoughts:

Quicker focus and fewer misses
About 1/2 stop improvement in ISO performance
Metering is different, I always used exposure compensation at +1 on the Mark I, but 0 exposure compensation produces the same result on the Mark II

Ok thanks for the reply.

It's worth it even if I have to sacrifice 1dx and 7d II to acquire it?

Spent the weekend at the cabin hoping for birds, looked up one night and saw the Milky Way---drove to the other side of the lake.
The light on left side is home away from home.
Not an 'astro' lens but as far as exposure, focal length I liked the 16-35/4.
Just don't look too close; old age and inability to get good round focus :(
Plus there is a bit of coma with this lens. Shot at 24mm, don't ask me why.

You'll have to ask yourself:

1) Can you survive with just one camera body?

2) Do you ever need the pixel density of the 7D2 to give you the artificial reach?

If you don't need 2 bodies and don't need that "reach", then I say jump right into the 1DX2.

On the way back home around the lake I stopped at the dam....great location except one of our
neighbors takes great security in his honking flood light :(
The Milky Way above I 'processed'. This one at 16mm had minimal processing, no noise reduction.
Only thing I did in LRcc was apply a radial filter on the Milky Way itself and increased clarity.
I know the experts would tear this image apart, I'm good with it because I see that wide field
astro is possible with the 16-35/4 saving me from toting yet another lens.

OK this is insane, trying to shoot a dragonfly in flight, well at least for me.
When I swing around panning with one my back snap crackles and pops.
But here is the freak in the room-ISO 12,8K Why? Don't ask me, shutter
speed maybe, or shooting into a shadow cove off the dock. Regardless it
was a lot of fun!

Packing up to leave the cabin I'm waiting on Poof (the she-boss of the house) to get out of the shower,
so I had plenty of time to play with a bracket. 5 shots, -2, 1, 0, 1, 2, HDR merge in LRcc. Should tell you
the windows are plexi and yellow, green, blue, circa 1960s when the cabin was built.

Quick shot from a shoot today for the magazine.

2016 BMW i8 passenger side mirror. Just thought it looked neat. Nice lines.

It was nerve wracking swinging the camera around a $140k car. :p

In all of the craziness of late I completely forgot to share the video I made to accompany that magazine feature article about the potters I posted about a while back.

So here it is. Shot completely on the 1DXII in about 3 hours. Let me know what you think. :-)

FANTASTIC! Love the video (and love the subject, those guys are amazing) :)

Thank you! That was a whirlwind shoot and the editing was done way too quickly for my liking, but we had a deadline, and we made it.

That was 1 hour and 40 minutes of talking edited down to under 4 minutes. With another 2.5 hours of B-Roll shot as well.
