7D2 is such a great camera. I still have photos that come up from mine. You guys are nailing the shots with them.

I still use mine quite a bit with the 100-400mm MKII and Sigma 150-600mm Sport despite having the Sony A9.

Really wish Canon would get their finger out and just stick a 90D sensor into a R5 or R6.

I can’t speak for Mike, but I went from the 7dmkii to the A9 with the 200-600, and I couldn’t be happier. It’s an amazing combo. You don’t need to worry about losing the crop factor either, because you will have the ability to shoot crop with the A9. You can even assign a button to do that function, so you can quickly switch between full-frame and crop.

I bought the a9 basically for the 200-600mm which is a fabulous lens but I do find 24mp limiting. I often find myself cropping to 100% even with 600mm (small birds etc) which leaves very small file sizes. Topaz Gigapixel comes in handy there but I would much prefer more mp to begin with (hence me asking for a crop mirrorless 7D MKII)

I have just got my hands on a secondhand 7DmkII and my initial impression is good, however one thing is troubling me and I am trying to work out if it is just the way it is or something odd on this camera. On other cameras (when not using back button focusing) if I half depress the shutter button it will AF and meter and then when I fully depress the button it will fire. With the 7DmkII the button is extremely sensitive and it is basically impossible to get it to AF and not shoot. I have been trawling through the settings in case this is an issue (but did a full reset when I got the camera so i assume it isn't that). Is this how they are or is this just an oddity of the one I have bought?

I have two bodies, T3i and 7D2. I have never noticed any appreciable difference between the bodies as far as the tactile feel of the shutter button is concerned. I do not BBF.

thanks - I wasn't sure it was right so tried another and it was much more how I expected so I have swapped to that one. I'm much happier with it, now just need some time and decent light so I can try it on something other than the local duck pond!

My 7dMKII has no problem with the half press. Maybe yours is very sensitive or defective. Sometimes I do have a heavy finger and I press a little too hard.


If YOU like the photo, that's all that matters!

When using shutter-button focus, the shutter button on my 7DMkII is like Baby Bear's soup; but, as I have conquered back button focus, I seldom ever use the shutter button for focusing.

Our two 7D are another story; they have very touchy triggers and it is hard to take a single shot.

I don't mind it though as I prefer quick.
