I'm curious to how capable this body is for landscape shots. I'm having a tough time deciding on getting the 5dmkii or 7d.


Canon 7Dmkii, 6D
70-200mm f2.8, 16-35mm f4,17-55mm 2.8 is, 100mm 2.8 macro, 100mm 2.8L, Sigma 50mm 1.4, 400mm 5.6L

Look through photo mags and compare how many landscapes are done with 5DII versus any other Canon body. If you shoot primarily landscapes or other stationary targets....get the 5DII. Having had both, this is not a toss up.

But if you primarily shoot moving objects (wildlife, sports) then it is not a toss up either....get the 7D due to better AF and longer range (narrower FOV).

It is only when you get to 5DIII that you get one body that does everything well. And even then 7D as a crop body has a reach advantage.

I agree.
Do you want an all around body or a body specifically for landscape.
You can't beat the 5d2 digital format for its price for landscape.

But I personally would not buy one because I shoot mostly wildlife/sports and the 7d OS better for those.

So what is your intended purpose?

The 7d can be used to make amazing landscape photos just so you know.

I mainly shoot sports and wildlife with my 30d and I'm ready to upgrade bodies and plan on doing a lot of landscape this summer and willing to give up speed and reach if the 5dmkii is that much better for landscape. So I was hoping people post landscape shots with the 7d to see if I could live with the results

Look up Canon_Lover, Johan Eikmeyer, and look at his site. Most of his photos are taken with a Canon 60D. They share the same sensor with the 7D although the AA filter on the 60D may be a bit less aggressive.

Johan recently switched to a 5DII, but I would be ecstatic if I could shoot the way he does with the 60D

Get a 7D. It does most things well.

I just looked at your Flickr. You should be the official "7d for sports / 5DII for landscapes" mythbuster. :)

Thanks mate. All the "7D can't do anything other than sports and wildlife" type comments really annoy me. I accept that the 5D2 is probably (I've never used one) better for landscapes but that doesn't mean the 7D can't do them!

Agreed. I have a 7D and a 5D3. The 7D is a fantastic body and suited to a wide range of subjects, landscapes included. For all practical purposes (this does not include pixel peeping, camera bashing for the fun of it or repeating what you may have read on the net without having any real experience of your own) they can be used interchangeably. Try it. You'll like it.

Nice shots from jack.

Also, OP, check out Rob Dickenson. Until very recently, he used 7D for beautiful landscapes of New Zealand.

Thank you.

Also, if you go on Flickr, you can use the camera finder to view all the 7D photos, and you can select landscape photos...

Excellent pictures, you must get as annoyed as I do when people tell you the 7D can't do landscapes...
