After spending some time out in California with Dave Etchells and the opening of the new Canon Experience Center, the 7D Mark II has returned. Now sporting final-production firmware since the last time the camera visited our test lab, we've updated our Samples page with re-done First Shots as well as the accompanying complete series of laboratory test shots.

While out in sunny southern California, Dave took the 7D Mark II out for some more gallery shooting, and we've also updated the 7D Mark II Gallery page with more real-world sample photos with a variety of subjects and lighting conditions, including bright daylight and sunset.

In the meantime, head over to the Samples page with our updated and complete lab test shots for all your pixel-peeping needs, and check out the expanded set of real-world gallery photos.
