Canon Ambassador Richard Walch on EOS-7D MK II and EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II

Canon EOS-7D Mk II with EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II Super Telephoto lens

FotoTV posted an interview with Canon Ambassador Richard Walch on the recently announced EOS-7D Mk II camera and EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II lens. As you know, Canon Ambassadors are paid photographers/spokesmen for the company and one has to determine the person's complete objectivity in whatever opinion given.

I have been a wildlife photographer using Canon equipment for 25 years and have been known to speak my mind on the company. I do not and have never received any compensation and advertisement from any company on my blog and website. When I go on my wildlife photo shoots, I put the equipment to real world tests and report the unbiased results on this blog and show the images on

My order has been placed for the EOS-7D Mk II and EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II. Planning to take them on a sub Arctic Polar bear shoot in early November, provided I receive the equipment in time before my departure. The sub Arctic is an excellent place to test equipment because of the extremely cold temperatures and inhospitable environment. My readers know I have picked the EOS-7D as the best APS-C camera 4 years in a row and the EF 400mm f/4 DO IS is my favorite all around Super Telephoto lens. So there are great expectations from me to see if these new gear will perform much better than their current generation. You can read my recommendation for wildlife and travel gear here.

I am not big on paid ambassadors, especially when they don't reveal it in the interest of full disclosure. This new camera speaks for itself. Let the photos tell the story.
