First images with the Canon 7D Mark II

Got this camera for low light work and sports (marching band & hockey) but have not had the opportunity to use it for those activites. But so far I really like it. Feels like the 5D Mark III in my hands and the controls are mostly identical. It is much more user friendly than the 7D and the images are great. I can’t wait to strap on the 100-400 and shoot an event with it. (Won’t be long.) So far I am very pleased with it.
