Canon EOS 7D Mark II Is Sharper And Has Less Noise Than EOS 5D Mark III

Look at the animated GIF above. Then look again, and maybe look at it one more time. Got it?

The animated GIF was made by professional photographer Arthur Morris. He shot two pics, one with the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the other with the EOS 7D Mark II. For both pics he used the EF 600mm f/4L IS II USM lens with a Canon Extender EF 2X III. Both cameras were set at ISO 400 and shot with 1/2500 at f/8. From the resulting images he made the 100% crop above.

Arthur Morris correctly notes two things (image above):

  • The feathers behind and above the bird’s eye are sharper in the 7D II image than in the 5D III image.
  • As far as noise, the 7D II image looks a lot cleaner.

Wow! It’s true. There is less noise in the image shot with the EOS 7D Mark II, and the same pic is also sharper!

Want to get closer? Then have a look at the 200% crop below.

Amazing, isn’t it? Look how the fine details come out better in the EOS 7D Mark II image. The EOS 7D Mark II seems to be the killer APS-C DSLRs professional photographers were waiting for. Kudos Canon, and to Arthur Morris for the not so easy task to shot two pictures using cameras with different sensor size and making the animated GIFs. Head over to his post to grab the story.

The EOS 7D Mark II appears to be an awesome DSLR. Read also about the EOS 7D Mark II’s incredible high ISO performance, and about the advanced auto-focus.

Canon EOS 7D Mark II High ISO Performance Is Awesome

EOS 7D Mark II

Professional photographer Jeff Cable got a pre-production EOS 7D Mark II and tested it with high ISO settings. Well, the EOS 7D Mark II delivers amazing results. See the crop below taken from the (full sized) ISO 51200 pic above.

Crop, ISO 51200

The pics you see here are not full sized (except for the crop above), so be sure to head over to Jeff Cable’s post where you can download the original sized files for you pixel peeping pleasure. There are more sample pics at all ISO settings, and some real world sample pics too. And obviously his first impression about Canon’s new APS-C flagship.

About the EOS 7D Mark II he writes:

So, what is my conclusion about the Canon 7D Mark II? [...] This camera offers a whole lot of features and image quality for the relatively low price of $1799. And even though I have a Canon 1Dx, I love having a smaller and lighter camera that can shoot 10 photos per second, and do so with really great quality. And there are times when having a crop sensor would be beneficial to get me a little closer to my subject. Basically, I see this as the little brother to Canon 1DX for a whole lot less money.

If you have been waiting to purchase a new camera for almost any type of photography (especially for sports and wildlife) this is a great choice!

The EOS 7D Mark II appears to be a real winner, a solid performing and well made APS-C DSLR that will not disappoint the serious photographers out there. As I wrote before: if you’re looking for gadget look for other camera brands, if you’re looking for serious DSLRs Canon is the right brand. See also what other pro photographers say about the advanced auto-focus system of the EOS 7D Mark II.

Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review (the best for sports and wildlife, Gizmodo)

Gizmodo posted their review of the Canon EOS 7D Mark II. Some comments are a little…weird but all in all they give the 7D Mark II a positive verdict, saying the EOS 7D Mark II is the best DSLR for sports and wildlife (I fully agree here).

If you shoot athletes or animals and are trying to keep it under $2000 for a new body, I would wholeheartedly recommend the 7D Mark II. Besides the increase in low light performance and an obsession with the full-frame “look,” there aren’t many reasons to go all-in on a 5D Mark III which is almost double the price. The 7D Mark II shoots faster and focuses better. You’re getting near the performance of the cameras NFL photographers use without having to spend seven grand on a body.

Most of Gizmodo’s dislikes are related to the weight and being “large”, they call it a “heavy brick”. A somewhat curious statement considering we are talking about a pro-level DSLR :-)

Below you can see a video comparison of the EOS 7D Mark II vs EOS 5D Mark III vs EOS 70D
