Canon 7D Mark II

Hi Bruce,

I like your website. It is straight forward and understandable. I also glaze over at too much technical data.

The 7D Mark II and T7i are my current cameras. I use them at airshows. The 7D Mark II coupled with a 100-400 L II lens is used for aerial shots. The T7i is used for static display shots.

I plan to hold on to the 7D Mark II until a comparable mirrorless is available, one that focus as well or better than the 7D MARK II and is superior in all the other categories that matter (no interest in video).

I must admit, however, that I am concerned about the quality of the adaptor that will allow current DSLR lenses to work with mirrorless cameras. What I have read indicates there is no problem, but…

Thanks again.

Fred


Hi Fred,
Thanks for checking in and thanks so much for your kind words! Writing is always a challenge for me, but I'm glad you're benefitting from the Canon Geek website.

Your wish for a comparable mirrorless is not too far off. Hang in there. I kept waiting (and still am) for the right Canon mirrorless design to jump in too. I think the adapters are fine, even most of the 3rd party ones seem to be almost totally problem free.

My entrance into mirrorless was delayed when I updated from a 70D to a 90D. It performs just about as well as a mirrorless with frame rate on still photos (just like your 7D MII), focusing speed, as well as video capabilities. It's just not as small as the mirrorless camera bodies are.

Keep in touch,
Bruce

Move to Canon Mirrorless
by: Anonymous

I took delivery of my Canon R5 on Friday together with a 100-500RF lens. I already own a 100-400mk2 and a 5dmk iv.
The adapter to use my EF lens on my R5 has been delayed.
So far I am finding the R5 difficult to get to grips with although I did get my first accurate bird photo today.
I’m not sure whether owning both zooms is a good thing
So, all I can say is that the move to mirrorless is not as simple as I expected but I am making progress. I will report back later.
The weight thing is important. The R5 and 100-500 feels much lighter. One thing that that convinced me to go this way was my 600mm lens which is absolutely excellent but is a bit like carrying a bazooka.
