If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Doesn't look wasted to me; these look great. The handling of things up to 3200 on the 7D2 is one of the great things about the body. You still have plenty of feather detail, good catch lights and colors.

Thanks. I guess "wasted" was a poor choice of words as I'm just happy to have sighted him. What I meant was that I hope to improve on the shot next time I spot another nightjar

The marmots seemed to enjoy licking the rocks.

Last one of my 4 "firsts" that I got the other day. I can't wait for the school holidays to finish............. not that the kids would go where I'd go in this location, but you can hear the buggers shouting from miles away. I'm definitely deserved of the kid's designation of a grumpy old fart :lol:

Another instance where that funny bokeh rears it's head on 2 of them?

Prolly a function of f/7.1 vs. f/8 and distance of subject to background.

Can't always choose... :lol:

Thanks to the 5D4, my faith in this lens has been fully revitalized! I went walking with just this lens + 1.4xIII yesterday, and I was just loving every minute of it because it just turned in the goods like never before. Bird shots, detail shots, bug shots, it did it all fantastically!

I have exactly the same problem on my 5dsr ....As you know the 5dsr and 7dMk2 are similar high pixel densities. Only difference being actual physical size of sensor with 5dsr being full frame and 7dMk2 being APS-c. My take on this is the sensor could well be picking up and amplifying subject movement especially in things like fine long grasses and leaves. And I too experience in bokeh of fine things like your seeing especially in fine long objects like pine needles, long grasses etc . And especially evident in heavy crops . As you know these high density "on target "pixel sensors like 7Dmk2 and 5dsr etc pick up camera shake well past the old rule of lens length x1 when determining S/S so when movement is happening in something like spinifex grass or pine needles its going to get amplified more in Bokeh than any in focus equivalent due to Aperture DOF blurring making things appear wider and bigger than they actually are . I know you have a shutter speed of 1/1600 in one of the images but Ive had it at those speeds also but the higher the speed the lesser the effect

So in light of nothing scientific out there thats my suspicion for whats occuring...However it may not be just one thing here ind infact as another poster mentioned maybe Aperture plays some part in this as I do remember reading somewhere that degradation of image( diffraction) starts earlier on these cameras/lens combos at around f7-f8 so maybe this could be it. .... Anyway rest assured you arnt on your own let me tell you:)

Interesting theories. To me it looks like an optical effect. Here is an example of mine from an earlier posting.
