I have had the Camera for about a year. At first I was disappointed with the focus. Then I discovered Micro-Adjustment. I bought a SPyderLensCal and spent a day adjusting each lens. Takes patience and time but the result is astounding. The Camera is fast and doesn't hunt for focus. I like the fact that it will take EFS and EF lenses so I don't have to worry about which lens format I purchase. L-Lenses perform GREAT on this Body.
I have attached a photo of fall leaves I think shows the cameras ability to faithfully reproduce color and deal with multiple focus points. I did have to downsize the photo to meet this sites standard so there is some loss in the image. I use Paint Shop Pro 20. This was taken hand held Canon EF 24-105mm 1:4L IS II USM Lens ISO 640 AV-Priority, f8, 1/32 shutter focal length 24mm. Auto Exposure Metering Type: Pattern. Image Stabilization: ON
The image was not manipulated in any way other than downsized. I could have mounted the 80D on my SLIK 400D Tripod. Taken some time, use mirror lockup, a remote release and so on and the photo would have been better no doubt. However, You don't always have the time for that and I think this shows what can be done by just pointing up and shooting. This shows the capability of the camera.
The photo of the tomato was taken hand held with an EF 70-200mm f4L USM ISO 160 f7.1 1/256 shutter metering mode: Spot Focal Length: 200mm. This lens does not have Image stabilization. It is one of my older L glass Lenses. But Color rendition and bokeh are spot on.
Some people don't like the articulating screen....However it does allow you to turn the screen toward the camera body when not in use and keep it from being damaged...big plus.
All in all, this is a great camera to have even as a pro for a backup. (this is why I like EF and EF-S Lens capability)
The camera will do a lot. There is a lot of menus to learn and adjustments to be made. However once learned it is a powerful photographer tool. That being said it may be a bit much for an armature or beginner. (which is why I think there are some unfair reviews about focus capabilities...just not knowing how to operate the camera)
I have been using Canon equipment since 1976. This is by far the most capable and versatile piece of equipment I have owned. When paired with a 600EX II-RT Speedlite it is a fantastic portrait camera. My intention is to move to a EOS 50DS after I retire and make photography my full time profession, but this will always be my go to back up for digital photography. I still have and Use some of my original 35mm Canon Cameras. They are rock solid tough. I expect no less from this piece of equipment.
