Default 7DMKii

Thought I would share a couple of shots from the new Canon 7DMKii using the TAMRON SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD. So far they seem to work very well together

I look at your pictures at Flickr using ISO 6400 and the pictures are still sharp and don't have much noise in them. I am very impressed with the 7D MKII at this aspect. I have a question on the Tamron 150-600mm if it has problem in AF tracking moving subjects as reported earlier when it was first introduced.

Thanks for looking WCKSer. The High ISO performance is better than I had expected. A little NR in post is all it needed. The High ISO noise looks different with this camera. It has more of a "grain" appearance and the subject detail stays sharper.

The issue with the 150-600 has been resolved by Tamron. They did a firmware update for the lens that all new models have in place. The older lenses with the problem, Tamron fixed them at no charge.

Thanks, Scott! I have been thinking about this lens for a while and hesitate to get one because of the initial AF problem. I am glad that the problem has been resolved and verify by an actual user.
