After a five-year wait, the successor to the original EOS 7D has finally arrived.
The Canon EOS 7D Mark II features a revamped advanced AF system, 10fps shooting speed and a 20.2-million-pixel CMOS sensor.
It’s designed with sports and action photographers in mind, so we took it out into the woods for a day of deer-spotting. We had a little success in that regard too – check out the pictures.
Further establishing its outdoorsy credentials, the Canon EOS 7D Mark II is also extensively weather-sealed. It got a good soaking while out in the field with us, and we’re pleased to report that its performance was not affected in the slightest.
Take a look at our Canon EOS 7D Mark II sample image gallery above and let us know what you think of the camera’s performance.
