Re: Canon 7D Mark II or 90D for Bird Photography

Of the 2 cameras you asked about I too would pick the 7D2 for the reasons already stated but if you asked me for a camera recommendation for small birds I would tell you to take a look at one of Canons new mirrorless bodies. Their animal eye detection works great and is talked about a lot but it is their ability to use tele-converters that I find most advantageous. Over in the R forum there are people posting pictures using the Canon 2x converter on the 100-400mm II L with excellent results. I still have my 5D IV and 7D II but for small bird I’m using a Sigma 150-600mm lens with the Canon 1.4x III converter giving me 840mm F9 on the R5 and am happy with the results. Examples are in my galleries here on DPR.
