Funny enough I went over to best buy and got one of these:

http://www.bestbuy.com …fcode=pg174626&​ksdevice=c (external link)

Going from my circa 7 year old 32GB CF card (Which i paid something in the neighborhood of $200 for!) to this has been shocking, to say the least.. My import speeds in lightroom went up dramatically compared to the old Transcend CF card or my Sandisk SD card from my GX8...

As for photos, all ive found are spiders and one squirrel to shoot so far, The next thing i really need is a new strap, thinking of one of the Peak Design ones.. my old one the attachment points are worn out and in danger of coming apart, Not something i want on my brand new $1500 camera... I'm processing through my first batch of photos, ive been very busy lately unfortunately

So far my impression of the 7DII is "Its everything I loved about my 7D turned up to 11" the AF is better, the image quality is LEAGUES better, it handles in my hand better, the controls are better, it has a locking mode dial, and the rear screen is nice.. The 9 point surround mode is VERY good i learned for tracking said squirrel...

I honestly didnt realize how huge the upgrade was from just playing with one in the store..

Oh and BTW my Best Buy has a 5D Mark IV with the 50mm f/1.2L bolted on it, Im completely in love with the 50mm f/1.2L, next time i am there i wanna try it out on my 7DII though... I bet ill love it just as much ;)


I use the 50L on my 7DII sometimes, I find it a great lens, dont have the so called focus shift with mine, maybe lucky., these are some shots taken with it on 7DII, I do tend to prefer on full frame though

I love my Sigmalux, but the one thing I dont like on it is the AF drive is a bit... shall we say inconsistent at times. I still have plenty of beautiful images from it but ive had plenty of times where it just didnt focus right

That was the first thing i noted on the 50L, the AF was FAR better than the Sigma..

Now im not saying the Sigma is bad, or the Sigma doesnt focus right, it just can be a bit of a putz sometimes...

And yeah, I noticed how lovely the 50L looked on the 5D Mark IV but.. I just didnt feel the 5D Mark IV was worth the extra over my 7DII, and i still prefer crop for a lot of what i shoot
