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.

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.
