Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review (Imaging Resource)

7d2_king

Imaging Resource posted the conclusion of their EOS 7D Mark II review. An excerpt:

In terms of speed performance, the 7D Mark II is a solid performer. Shutter lag, cycle times and burst speeds are all very good based on our lab tests, and the generous buffer depth is also very welcomed. However, autofocus performance was not a clear-cut improvement over the original 7D. With the new iTR AF (Intelligent Tracking and Recognition) feature, which utilizes color information, face detection and other info from the metering sensor, the 7D Mark II provides greater focus accuracy, however that does slow down sheer AF speed (and burst rate slightly, too). Nevertheless, even in single-shot AF mode, which doesn’t use the optional iTR mode, we found the AF lag speed to be slower than the 7D and 70D.

The review comes with samples, IQ tests, and more. IR also published and EOS 7D Mark II shooter’s report (part 1 | part 2).

Read more about the EOS 7D Mark II’s highlights: the excellent weather sealing, the highly advanced AF, and the industry leading high ISO performance (have a look here too). All our coverage on the EOS 7D Mark II can be seen here (and there is a lot).

    “Nevertheless, even in single-shot AF mode, which doesn’t use the optional iTR mode, we found the AF lag speed to be slower than the 7D and 70D.”

    He’s got a setting wrong somewhere, then. I’ve got all three cameras – 7D, 70D and 7D mk II – and in terms of responsivess and speed of the sort he’s talking about, the Mk II is CLEARLY snappier than the other two.

    And yes, iTR slows things down when it’s in use – but it does on the 5D Mk III and the 1D-x too, so that’s hardly a criticim of the 7D Mk II.

    Canon people are very loyal considering the little improvements they were given over the last 5 years

    • Keith Reeder

      No, we just know how to use our cameras properly.

      And “little” improvements?

      Troll, or just stupid?

      Oh, hang on – both.

      It’s both, isn’t it?

        Oh, sorry, you didn’t make any valid arguments so keep calling in names!
