Jeez!!! I was not expecting it to be this clean at ISO 3200 and 6400. original 7D was really bad so that was original benchmark. Thanks for sharing these images.

Does anyone use a 7dii as their second body at events? Is ISO 2500/3200 useable or should I stick to 5d iii?

If you are going to post process them even 6400 ISO will be fine although it may require a bit of noise reduction.

The original 7D started to get noisy above 800 ISO.The 7D II is significantly better in that regard.

Fantastic shots, Lester. I especially like the first one.

I've delivered IS016000 without the client blinking. I didn't find the 7D any worse at 3200.. It's in my bag as a backup..

Yes, on the first on the second it was just by a path on a branch, over a dich, so close I had to backup to get within the minimum focus distance.

They show well at some times of the year at Arundel WWT; both of these shots were in January.

These birds are as shy as anything. How on earth didn't it fly? You must have formidable field craft!

The history is they come into this small reserve in winter because they operate a tour boat and so keep the water ice free, the birds come as they can fish. I guess they get used to people being about. In summer they disappear as the geology is not right for the river banks they need to nest. But yes that last one was ridiculous even by the standards of the place, as long as you don't rush in.

Here is another posing on a reed in the open in December, about 20-30 feet away.

Those were all from 2017 but we have been seeing them showing well from 2015. We have not been down as much in the last couple of years because of family commitments, but no reason for them not to show during winter.

I know I haven't been around in a long while but wanted to stop by to celebrate the awesome stroke of luck I had last week. Here is the 'story'.....

So I am in Northern Wisconsin (around Hayward) visiting my son for camp intersession weekend. Driving down a back two lane county road, I see my first ever bald eagle in the wild. No, not soaring above or perched in a tall pine, but on the side of the road feasting on a raccoon that was hit by a car. I couldn't believe it as I drove past. So I pull a u-turn and drive back past the eagle about 150 feet. Luckily I at least had my 7dii albeit only with my walk-around Tamron 18-270mm lens as I only expected to take a few camp photos.

So I get out of the car, pop the hatch, opening the camera bag and grab the camera. I at least check that I'm in high speed multishot (with no setup time, I left it in Av mode knowing it was full sun outside for good enough SS.) I know this lens is quite poor at keeping focus on moving subjects like running dogs and other decently fast running; and it also displays a softness at the 270mm long end, but is sharp are more nominal focal lengths. So my plan is to approach the eagle, and every 25 feet to take shots and then advance until it didn't tolerate me anymore. Fortunately, the side of the road had a downward slope of about 30ft of grass before trees started. So I started walking along the tree line parallel to the road to begin the approach and shooting it as it ate the dead racoon. It gave me a slight upward shooting angle to catch the trees on the other side of the road for a clean background, except for when a car or truck drove by. As I approached,I would walk slowly to my next kneeling point to shot. In the end, it tolerated me upto about 25 feet away before it decided to take flight.

I felt fortunate for the captures I got. I know the crown of the head unfortunately was blown out which is a bit ironic since Canon AE often underexposed white. Most of the bif shots were not in focus as the eagle was flying away from me before banking to the left which I mostly blame on the slow lens, and a few shutter speed issues from the Av mode. A couple of the bif were acceptable but did require large crops.

Thanks for looking.

I attached a sample below.

It does very well in low light. Some people say the 7D2 is a "light hog" but they've never explained very well what they mean or why they think it is one.
