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
