Canon recently released the Canon 7D MK2 camera, aimed squarely at wildlife and sports photographers. A few days after it started to arrive in the UK stores, this new DSLR was firmly in my hands.

I use a full frame Canon 1DX for nearly all of my photographs these days. That camera consistently gives me high quality images time after time. However, being full frame, there are times when I wish that my camera and lens combination had a little more "reach". Therefore, the 1.6 crop factor offered by the Canon 7D MK2 was the prime reason why I added this camera body to my kit bag. Sometimes, when I am photographing small birds for example, the birds can still be a little too small in the frame on my 1DX camera. Having some extra "reach" is also advantageous when photographing larger but more "nervous" species. Birds like this Kestrel have a natural comfort zone, and it doesn't like coming too close to my hide. By connecting the 1.6 crop camera to my lens it allows me to place the hide much further away from the bird, allowing the Kestrel to be more relaxed.
