Canon's EOS 7D Mark II was a long time coming. It arrived in time for Photokina 2014, combining a pro-grade AF module with a 20MP APS-C CMOS sensor using Dual-Pixel AF. The 7D II also provides 10 fps continuous shooting, a 150,000-pixel RGB + IR metering sensor and 1080/60p video recording. It's as robust a feature set as you'll find in the APS-C class, and its autofocus specs are truly impressive. Read our full review and see how it performed in the studio and in the field.

Note that this review contains three 'lab report' pages in which we introduce the concept of 'ISO-Invariance' in connection to our comparison between the image quality of the EOS 7D II and some of its competitors. We will be revisiting this subject in greater depth in a future article.
