7D Mark ii and 100-400 Mark ii review: Day 9 Eagles Again

Saturday 1/17/15 was my last Eagle trip with the combination of the New Canon 7D mkii and the new Canon 100-400mm IS Mark ii.

Light was crappy all day.  I also was lucky enough to have a paid client that day, so I didn’t focus much my photography as much as making sure he knew his gear and his subject.  A few minor tweaks and he was off and having the time of his life photographing my Bald Eagles on the Mississippi River at Lock and Dam 14.

Anyway on with the review.  This will be my last write up before tomorrow big total review on which gear I will be keeping and if any gear is being returned.

  1. Yep, nice pics as usual Kent. Your right the last pic is very telling but then again the 7D Mark II is a fraction of the cost of the 1DX. The 7D Mark II pics above look very good to me in less than desirable light. Thanks for your efforts and I look forward to your final review of the 7D Mark II.


    • Thanks Pierre! Both companies product great products. I am glad there are at least 2 major players. They keep having to one up each other, and both family of photographers win!
