    Well maybe the third time will be the charm? The 7dm2 is all packed up and going back tomorrow for it's third trip to Canon. I politely expressed my dissatisfaction in continuous tracking with the camera . Osprey season is only 65 days away and I want to make sure I have a camera that I have confidence in. If that doesn't work it puts me at a bit of a conundrum... :(

    Sorry to hear this kris. I can imagine you will be watching the d500 very closely when it comes out and no one could blame you either. Hope they get it fixed for you. But i really wonder if they do anything other then make sure it works and just send it back. I do think mine tracks better since i got mine back but I only use the 7dm2 once in a while since getting the 1d. For me my keeper rate is so much higher on the 1d. But the 7dm2 has its moments. Good luck

    If I paid the difference in price of the two, I better damned well be getting a better keeper rate :)

    I wouldn't choose the 1dx personally.. When you are focal length limited and add,a 1.4x extender to composenate you loose your 1 stop advantage of full frame..

    Anyways the 7dm2 is back at Canon for the 4th and last time. Hopefully it will be replaced this time with a body that functions as great as the loaner does.. The difference is day and night with both IQ and tracking..
