I think the meter will be a big factor. I like the VF display a lot. Since I try to expose to the right, control is important. I'll be in M mostly.

What I meant Tom was running in manual mode is just that and you will need to understand and use your meter to expose correctly. I have never been a ETTR kinda guy. and mostly expose a little low and push up in PP. with todays camera's I think the ETTR thing is less of a problem. getting a correct exposure is more a factor. I would suggest you more start out in Av so you can more understand what the 7DII feels is a good exposer. Then you will more understand what you want from your images in different lights. Auto iso in manual is possible with the 7DII but its hard to call it manual for some of us. lol

Shooting with Auto ISO this morning in even low light and on days that are so bright I cant see the meter one can appreciate the EC and auto iso of the 7DII. Although I still find the whites a little bright. This morn was no different

"Not fair".... hmmm - "not fair"... "Not fair" would be a cloud passing in front of the sun right when I want to press the shutter button. "Not fair" might be a deer turning her head right when I think I have a great pic.

Deer running to you so you can take their pics is freaking WRONG - just wrong!

Not that I'm jealous or anything ;-)a

I am having some issues transferring photos from my camera to my computer. I am getting the "something went wrong, not all your images transferred" message. Would you please share how you transfer images and what you use? Right now, I'm using the supplied cord and transferring directly to my computer.

Thank you,
Rainyday

I use a card reader and have not had that problem. USB 3.0 reader connected to my Mac laptop.
Have you noticed how many images aren't transferring?

I believe they were not written to the card correctly or the card is having an issue. If there is a pin or two that is not making a great connection ....Trouble!! I have seen it I should say as well I use a Sandisk card reader and have used the cable to camera as well

Thanks for input. I don't use those buttons but I have been shooting only stationary subjects until now. Being able to start AI Servo or one shot AF from the buttons would be handy. I assume once either AF mode is started a shot can be taken by fully depressing shutter button. If one starts one shot AF can one select focus point/area? This would be useful for acquiring focus and then switching quickly to AI Servo if the subject started to move.

Yes when you press a back button it starts to focus. When you fully press the shutter it takes the shot. When you go into custom controls and enter the first one which is the shutter button you can disable it from focusing and make it activate the shutter only. Switch it to Metering Start. Many do this but I don't bother as it has never effected me.

It looks like you can move the focus point/area around after when you start AF in one shot. I have never tried that until now but it is not easy. I can't tell if I was inconsistent with my finger on the shutter and it allowed me to do that. I don't think I'll be doing that. I will mov the AF point first. You can set up the multi-controller button to move the AF points around. Also you can set the AF Area selection lever to change AF modes.
