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).

Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review (highly recommended, Photography Bay)

7d2_king

Photography Bay reviewed the Canon EOS 7D Mark II. Once more, a review confirms that the 7D2 is the state-of-the art APS-C DSLR.

From the conclusion:

The image quality improvements over the prior generation are better than expected. The AF system is state-of-the-art. The control and customization possible with this camera is more than you would expect for a $1800 asking price.

The spec sheet and feature highlights of the 7D Mark II can seem underwhelming at first glance. However, once you use this thing, you realize just how much is under the hood. I have to tip my hat to Canon for producing a solid, professional-grade camera at a very attractive price point.

As a sports and action camera, it is the best bang for your buck on the market. Nothing else comes close.

As an all-purpose DSLR, it is a strong offering that won’t slip up in just about any circumstance. Sure, there are cameras that offer more resolution or more video features; however, the 7D Mark II is very balanced from top to bottom.

Photography Bay give the EOS 7D Mark II a “highly recommended”. The review comes with sample pics, analysis of the highlight features, high ISO samples etc. Different lenses are tested and reviewed for their use on the 7D2.
