cant say I have heard any issues with the d500 yet but the D5 is not complaint free to my knowledge, as for focus issues with 7DII, what focus issues, Ive never had any, there are probably a few duds out there but by all means not all 7DIIs have issues
This thread was meant to be about D500 vs 7DII and one would expect a newer model with newer tech to be a bit better. but as i have already said, there is no photo Ive seen yet from D500 that I cant get the same sort of result out of my 7DII, its just that the D500 has probably made it easier to do
why was Jim banned?
I have yet to see one complaint about the D5 except for price and as for the 7D2 i am afraid someone is burying their head in the sand about its problems, the problem is very wide spread, every forum out there has their threads about focus complaints with the 7D2, there has been MANY an accomplished photog that had the go through multiple copies of the body just to get one that works half assed close to what Canon advertised and i am afraid your image of the swallow is really not helping as i find the image extremely soft, for a shutter speed of 1/4000 something really missed in that shot
As for picture to picture comparisons that doesn't tell the whole story if you are judging a camera that way, i could say i have seen pictures out of a T3i or a D70 that equals and in some cases beats what comes out of the higher end cameras and the 7D2, but its the ability of the camera to get and consistently get those great images, so while the 7D2 can get one out of ten good images out of a 10fps shooting sequence but fails on the other 9 cause of its focus issues and someone posts that one good image does not tell the telling story while the D500 is nailing shot after shot. And again, the sensors in the 2 cameras, well we all know that story, Canon sensors, well they just plain suck. There are also a lot of Canon landscape shooters that added a Sony body to their camera bag just to have that better sensor and that right there says a lot about Canon sensors. With the Sony body they can have a much better sensor but still use their Canon lenses. When I switched from the 7D to the D300S I was amazed at how much better the files and focusing was than the 7D and that continues to this day
Like I said, Canon shooters don't like to hear the above but it is what it is
