These were all shot with a 70-200L f/4 IS at 200mm. Tripod mounted, Av mode, ISO from 100 - 12800. I moved the tripod closer for the 5D3 shots. These are 800x800 pixel crops. In each group, the 70D is first, 7D2 is second, and the 5D3 is third. All processed with DPP 3.14.41. All noise reduction is turned off as is auto lighting, digital lens optimization, and lens aberration correction. Looks to me like the 7D2 is right in between the 70D and the 5D3 (which is where we expected it to be).

Since we're limited to 8 images per post, this will be in 4 postings. Hopefully I can get them all done before someone starts commenting. :)

Tells me that I need a used 7D or MKiii. Not that there is anything wrong with the 7d2.

Interesting. It looks to my naked eye like the 7D2 is a little better with better contrast in the "OFF" than the 70D. It could be a confirmation bias tho.

I can still see the lettering in the 7dII and its practically gone in the 70D. I wonder what the difference is between the 7d and 7dII

You know, most people buying this camera aren't going just for noise performance. They want the AF and FPS. If they were just worried about noise they would go FF.

Don't know, would love to find out but I have my eyes more on a 70-200 f2.8 than I do a 7Dii, figure I'll bide my time until the hit the used or refurb market since I have had good luck doing that so far.

Yes, I bought mine for the AF and FPS. Having a little better IQ is a mild bonus.

Seeing as how my 40D at ISO 600 looks like the 7d II at ISO 1600, thats a huge improvement for me and while I can see its still better on full sensor, I really wanted the speed that comes with this camera for my daughters gymnastics team

And the AF will be a big improvement. I use my 40D mostly with my fisheye in good light. One of these days I'll get the 7D2. For now I just have to be jealous.
