Recently DXOMark posted their final result for the Canon EOS 7D Mark II camera. They didn’t seem to be much impressed by the results. Other cameras at the same price tag offer better low ISO performance than Mark II. Apart from several advancements the whole camera resembles to the 5 year old Nikon D300 DSLR but on a strange note the dynamic range offered by D300 was much better than the new 7D Mark II.
“On paper, the Canon EOS 7D Mk II looks to be a solid choice for sports and action photographers, but its sensor performance is somewhat behind the best in class, at least at low ISOs. Relatively high noise, less discriminating color, and below-average DR at base ISO all continue to hold back Canon sensors against rivals, but that’s not the case at higher sensitivities. In fact, when light levels fall, the Canon EOS 7D Mk II performs competitively, even surpassing rivals slightly. If Canon could only address performance at base and low ISO, the EOS 7D Mk II would make a thoroughly convincing all-round choice, but in this category the Sony A77 II looks to be the more compelling option.”
