First 2 shots are fantastic! Really sharp. To be honest, though, the last shot isn't in the same league - timing is great, but looks like it was too-heavily cropped.

What can I say? It's too small of a fish that he caught

can see a huge difference in those noise compared to your earlier images...the 7DII is definitely a good upgrade from the 1d mark III.But secretly i love the 1d Mark III. i currently have the 1d 4 MP camera and i love its ability to fire like so many shots with my moving kid.


I may try the 7D mark II but will take the sigma 120-300 route this time for good.

I still have the 1D Mrk III (and the Mrk II too in fact) so I can bring both cameras with me sometime for fun...

I highly recommend the new 120-300 f/2.8. It's so good I never hesitate to shoot with a 2x converter when needed to: V1 Power

That lens is so flexible that you can micro-focus it at all focal lenghts (unlike the the 7D MrkII which only allow at the wide and tele ends) and customize its AF speed or accuracy to your liking: http://www.sigma-global.com/download/en/
