"Canon 7d + 100-400mm IS Zoom Poor for Bird Photography"2.0 starson by gzelych
Pros: For large objects the autofocus works well. But smaller low contrast objects ( e.g., anything duck sized or smaller ) come out soft and out of focus approximately 9 times out ot 10!
Cons: Abysmal low contrast focus capability and generally flat, muddy images.
Summary: In my opinion, and significant experience ( several months and several thousands of photos with the 7d and the 100-400mm lens ) Canon really dropped the ball with this cameras poor single point, ai servo ( i.e., the best the camera can do ) autofocus capability!
With it's speed ( 8 frame/sec ), crop factor ( 1.6 x ) and a 400 mm zoom ( 640 mm effective ) this pair should be a dream come true for bird photographers. In fact it's abysmal low contrast focus capability and generally flat, muddy images leave me very, very disappointed.
