On Canon EOS 7D Mark II: A professional's opinion article (511 comments in total)
In reply to:

Gnaeus48: I enjoy reading user opinions especially professionals, however, I would not expect a sports photographer to select an APS-C camera for their work since isolation of the subject and depth of field is very important to them. Also when you consider that shooting at higher ISO goes along with the fast shutter speed they need to stop action the APS-C sensor generally does not produce low noise at high ISOs. But, for those of us who shot landscapes, still life and portraits, the 7D II is a super camera. If you check out the high ISO noise on the Nikon D7100 you will see significant noise in both the highlights and shadows as well. From the sample photos I have viewed at DPReview taken with the 7DII, I like the high ISO performance of the 7D II over the D7100.

Flying Fish, I agree with you that the 6D would be a better landscape and portrait camera, though I was only addressing the issues presented as to the 7DII. However I do have reservation about the 6D's autofocus system, its lack of internal camera controls for lighting ratios with wireless speedlights and not have a pop-up flash to fire speedlights wireless.

Let's get over this ridiculous 1970s liberalism...we have had enough.

The D600 is a nice camera, but its high ISO performance is not on par with the Canon 6D. Also Nikon put the same auto focus system in the D600 as is in the D7000, so you have a DX auto-focus system in a FX camera; not a great innovation! Also the Canon 6D has the same body construction as the D600. Additionally, the difference in 4 mp is not noticeable unless you print extremely large. So I do not see any advantage in buying the D600 over the 6D.

A waste of time

Eyesometry: Over 2k for a lens that doesn't even have IS? Really?!?!? And then they went and put IS on two prime lenses? WTF!!!

I agree, but Nikon's 24-70 is also 2k and no VR!

Francis Carver: Yawn.... YAWN!

People, just how many 70-200mm/F4 zooms does Planet Earth's inhabitants need, exactly?

Well how many are there? The only one I'm aware of is the Canon 70-200 4.0L
