Has anyone that's used a 5DII / III or 6D prior or alongside noticed the feel of the 7D2 shutter button being completely different? I'm using a brand new 7D2 body and every time I press the shutter release the initial half movement seems so slack in comparison to the point it actually concerns me in regards to it packing in at some point in the near future, it isn't a nice damped, well built feeling like my other Canon models, actually feels quite cheap and loose when I press it down through its first movement until it reaches the metering operation and from then on it feels normal taking the shot! Can anyone confirm before I try out a demo model that it's normal for this model?

Mine is the same feel. I thought it was the camera. I have a 70D and the feel is completely different. I now use Back Button Focusing.

I don't think there's a cure for that yet.. More research needs to be done for people suffering from ... Acute cuteness Attack.

Those photos shot with the Sigma 150-600 are outstanding !!

Now I'm wondering if it would be worth selling my Canon 100-400L and buying the Sigma.

I shoot with a 5D Mark iii and an 80D.

Anyone have experience with both?

I think I'm learning more about exposure. In flight, expose about one stop more for the bird or plane. This was cropped a bit.
