So I'm doing quite a bit of road tripping and traveling across the continent in the upcoming year. This past year I did so for about two months up and down the East and West Coast. I had packed along a 400mm DO II and a 600mm II with me for wildlife with a 7D II. Sadly, in the first month I didn't use the 7D II once as no situations really arose for me to need the reach and so I sold it. However, in the second month, there were instances where it would've been very useful, such as trying to shoot eagles in British Columbia, and the absence was enough of a pain that I'm considering buying a 90d for my upcoming travels this year. I am wondering how everyone who's used this camera for wildlife like it. Some of the questions I'm wondering about are can you push the iso above 1600, is there better DR, and is the focusing consistent and reliable? I'm also curious about the video side as well since it seems like 4k with no crop and 120 fps at 1280 would make it the best video camera aside from the 1DX II (which I have, but damn is it heavy on a gimbal).

Hi Austin.. I like what Birdshooter said.  Anyhoo: if you click on my flickr link below you will see what I've shot with the 90D and the 100-400 mk2 + 1.4 ex III.  Lots of BIFs... and just did a nice capture of a Swan unfolding.... a flicker flickering and some buffleheads  etc,  I'm only an amateur and still have lots to learn.  Good luck

When I'm not playing birds, I'm shooting my accordion....or is it the other way around?
