Our web editor, Stan Horaczek, was pretty impressed during his brief encounter with the Canon 7D Mark II at Photokina 2014, so I was excited to take this camera in the field. I spent some time shooting a pre-production model of the Canon 7D Mark II with an EFS 18-135mm STM kit lens and although I can't make any final decisions about image quality, I can say I'm pleased with the shooting experience.

The Autofocus on the new 7D is pretty incredible and very fast. I also liked the new addition of a focus switch on the back of the camera. This switch allows you to easily toggle between focus modes: choosing single points, a cluster of points or an entire group of pixels.

Overall, I was pleased with the results of the new 7D and I'm looking forward to seeing how it performs in our full lab test.
