I agree Clipper, The images are so much more these days but I have to wonder if some of the IQ is not the amateur Photog, We go at it like its a business. Some spend 10's of thousands, some only enough to get by like myself, I don't think ill ever own the camera I would like to shoot. But we strive for more. I would love to try a more advanced camera than the 7DII.. It kinda feels two years old now lol. It was and is phenomenal but !!! The new stuff looks so inviting. The above images are the same image, the head shot is just a crop of the entire image. The book idea is a cool one.
Really the 7DMk2 may be a couple of years old but there is not much out there in cropped sensors with a higher pixel density than what already you have ...Really only 5ds/r in full frame and thats only same density as 7DMk2. Infact just look at the majority of high IQ images in this thread and you will see the clear combo of choice is a 7dMk2 with either a 100-400Mk2 or a 500mm F4. Infact I recon without actually counting the thread it would represent maybe 50-60% of all images posted.. maybe even more.. So until something comes along that can improve on the great detail your already getting why bother. Thats also the way I see it with the 5dsr. I recon Im good to stay with this combo (5dsr-100-400Mk2) as my main weapon of choice for either landscapes or to a lesser extent wildlife etc for a good 3-4 years . Only thing I may consider is a good second hand ef500 f4. I was loaned a new Mk2 500mm from Canon CPS a couple weeks ago to try out on birds at local wetlands and it was blown away with its image IQ And thats why I may consider it especially as I need light to shoot low iso on this sensor so the f4 extra stop would be a godsend .....but the price to pay to get that extra stop and 100mm FL is like insane .....Im another person in the POTN community thats suffering from the dreaded GAS(Gear Aquisition syndrome) I think
