7D Mark II Reviewed by Gizmodo: Best DSLR For Sports and Wildlife

Gizmodo has posted the review of Canon EOS 7D Mark II DSLR camera: The Best DSLR For Sports and Wildlife, But That’s All.

You know, the new 7D Mark II features a new 20.2-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, 10fps continuous shooting at full resolution, a new 65-point cross-type AF system and Canon’s amazing Dual Pixel CMOS AF for brilliant Live-View AF. It’s aimed to meet the demands of photographers and videographers who want a camera that can provide a wide range of artistic opportunities.

Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review from Gizmodo:

Likes

It has the most powerful guts of any APS-C DSLR to-date. Focusing is fast as hell in pretty much any condition, especially tracking moving subjects. Low light performance is one small step above other APS-C cameras. You’ll be able to shoot in any condition thanks to the robust weather-sealing. The camera is superbly customizable. Autofocus in video mode is great and makes shooting stills with live-view much easier. It’s super-duper rugged.

Dislikes

It’s still a large and heavy DSLR that is a pain to carry around. Video quality is improved from previous APS-C bodies, but it’s still not an improvement over the two year old 5D Mark III and can’t compete with the latest mirrorless cameras. It also lacks basic video features like focus peaking. Still image quality is largely stagnant from previous generations of Canon DSLRs.

Should You Buy It

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.
