  • admin

    Thanks Jeroen for the suggestion, the error is now corrected.

  • admin

    Yep.. now corrected.

  • Time to retire my old 7D. The 7D Mark II will be joining the 5D Mark III at all my shoots, can’t wait!!

    Is it fair to put these cameras up against each other? One is a (semi-)professional sports and wildlife body, while the other is an entry level full frame (portrait/landscape) camera.

    Seems like the Nikon 7100 would be a better contender to go up against the 7DmkII.

  • Yes, the 6D has a larger sensor, either the 5diii but, how much is this difference in image quality? It’s …negligible this difference? Sony and Fuji are making awesome APS-C cameras with great image quality. Technology is constantly changing. APS-C sensor cameras are serious competitors this days. Canon call the 7dii semi-pro because the sensor? A camera built like a tank? I hope so see soon more objective comparison about this cameras.
