Default Red Hummer

I've been given an opportunity to try out a Canon 7D with the 70-200 f/4 and other lenses for the last few weeks.

Birds in flight is supposed to be one of the areas where this camera excels. It did.
There's no doubt it's AF is the best I've ever used.

Here's one try with a bird coming to the feeder. There were some out of focus but most in focus. 7 out of 12 in focus, not bad.

These are some pretty heavy crops, but with 18mp you got a lot of room for cropping.

The owner is letting me test drive this system to see if I would be interested in it. I'm heavily invested in the Sony system now so I would have to start all over.

This is a great camera It's really tempting.

Here's another shot.

Im sure that I could get shots as good as this with my A-700 and Tamron 200-500 but not nearly as easy as with this system.

I like how you can hear the camera wind up as you push the shutter half way down to focus. A very high performance body.

One last shot

Fantastic photos, beautiful. Is that a Rufous Hummingbird?

Thank you flutelady. I don't know what type of hummingbird it is. He is very territorial, he chases away any other hummingbird that even gets near the feeder.
