After reading this I snapped a few raw images at ISO 3200.....hmmm,I think you are right.I was never impressed with the 7D's ability to handle hi ISO noise but it seems to be better?
So has Canon quietly improved an area of the 7Ds performance that attracted a lot of discussion? Maybe a bit like the way an ins company pays out without admitting liability?
Incoming? No worries, just friendly discussion for me here , I may be wrong and I've hardly used my 7D since I got a 1Div a few months ago. Seriously though, the noise handling was the 1st thing I noticed after I upgraded the firmware.
