Personally, I like the 1st over the 2nd, for the treeline being in focus, but otherwise I'm in complete agreement.

Hardly a cloud in the sky when I went out for a walk this evening so didn't think there was going to be a sunset at all. I'd intended to find some birdlife but didn't really find anything exciting happening. But then the sky decided to do something after all and I managed to grab this with the 70-200 when it happened in front of me.

I have been shooting a 70D for less than a year but ordered the 7DII yesterday. B&H will have it here by the end of the day today. Suppose to be a nice weekend here so...

Been following this thread for awhile and hope I can do the camera the same justice that you all do.

Welcome to the club Will, many an ex 70D shooter over here, me included.

I think you will love the step up.

Cheers

Thank you Gus. The 70D will stay in the stable having sold the 60D I had. Since most of my photography is outdoor the 7D gets the Tam 150-600 and 70D now gets the shorter lenses. I'm really looking forward to getting it in my hands and contributing.

Congrats on the new camera Will. I sold my 70d and now have the 7dII paired with a 6d which seems like a winning combo. However, I do miss some of the 70d's features such as WiFi and touch screen.

Thanks JV. I did look hard at the 6D but had no interest in getting rid of the 70D.

Pondrader suggested I use Case 5 with the tracking sensitivity taken down one notch... to the left, using the rate button.

It's been working very well for me both for stills and birds in flight.

Mainly, it's helped me relax and just shoot. I think that had a huge effect.

Thanks guys. I also took one with the tree line in focus for that 2nd shot, but the details in the clouds would have been muddled/lost so at the time, I decided to process the clouds and their layers instead of the trees. Greatly appreciate the feedback.

Shot in the OKC zoo earlier this week. 7D MKII and Tamron 70-300 VC. The camera was in manual with the SS at 800, the aperture at f8 and the ISO on auto. I would never float the ISO with my 50D but I am finding the 7D2 RAW files to be very flexible. I can really get a lot out of them in LR.

Enjoy.

These and the gorilla shots are very nice. It looks like the tamron lens works well with your camera.
