Canon EOS-7D Mark II vs EOS-80D Camera Comparison

My readers know the Canon EOS-7D and now the Mark II has been my favorite APS-C cameras for wildlife photography for quite a few years, when I want that extra reach. The EOS-7D Mark II won the EISA award two years ago and now the EOS-80D won the same award for 2016.

For sports and wildlife photography, one can hardly go wrong with the EOS-7D Mark II, especially when paired with the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II zoom lens. For those who want an all round camera and don't need the burst rate and AF sophistication of the Mark II, the EOS-80D is an excellent choice. You can read my real world review on the EOS-7D Mark II, see my equipment bag and works on Below is a video from DigitalRev comparing the tow cameras.

The big differences between the EOS-7D Mark II and EOS-80D are the following :

  • Dual vs. Single DIGIC 6 processor
  • 65 vs. 45 cross-type AF points
  • None vs. Touchscreen AF in Live View
  • 10 vs. 7 fps burst rate
  • 1090 JPEG, 31 RAW vs. 110 JPEG, 25 RAW  
  • 200,000 vs. 100,000 cycle shutter rating

  • Dual (CF + SD) vs. Single (SD) card slot
