Canon 7D - ERR20 problem

Mohandass, Canon
26 October 2012
  • Conclusion: The camera features are good and worked fine but failed on a lifetime trip to the himalayas where I carried about 12kgs of deadweight with lenses. ERR20 which seems to be a mechanical defect with the shutter assembly quality. After browsing the net i found there are a lot of photographers complaining on this issue. But i am worried if canon would look into this issue at all.
  • Pros: excellent image quality
  • Cons: Shaky operation, Poor build quality, Slow Start-up time

Focus, Soft Focus and OOF and exposure

TVSTAFF, Canon
14 May 2012
  • Conclusion: My 7D with the 17-55mm 2.8 has oof and soft focus issues I can't correct with MA. The same goes with the 50mm 1.8. Ever with single point of fofuc with mirror up on tripod with a lot of light from 2.8 to 10.0 and above I just can't get the 7D to be tack sharp. If you do get a good shot you have to post with so much sharpness that other aspects are thrown off. Using multi point focus there is so much front and back focus that MA is usless.
  • Cons: out of focus, soft focus, exposure

Price is HIGH

rabinarayan, Amazon
22 April 2012
  • Summary: No doubt this camera with 15-85 lens is an excellent combination. But, this price is little HIGH. It Should be $1700 to $1800. I have bought one 7D with 15-85 in $2020 in Feb 2012. I got it with decent accessories(32GB Card + Battery + Case + Tripod + UV Filter + Cleaning Accessory Kit) Whoever wants to order, please wait for some more time definitely the price has to come down soon.

Can't focus

Heather, Canon
22 December 2011
  • Conclusion: Had camera for almost 2 years now, focus is pretty completely luck. I thought it was handler error for a long time, finally sent it back for servicing, still front/back focuses. Doesn't matter the settings, lighting, or subject - will even struggle to focus with a still subject under bright lighting. If I had the money, I would definitely trash this thing and get another body - very disappointed.
  • Cons: poor focus, high noise

I loved this camera too bad it is already broken

Donald R., Newegg
16 November 2011
  • Pros: Great Autofocus System. This was y favorite camera but until it broke. Everyone 7D Canon has made is defective. If yours has not broke it will! Canon should issue a recall.
  • Cons: Every 7D has a factory defect. Eventually, the camera will stop communicating with any original camera battery. You will have to ship it to Canon and they will charge your $210 to fix it. Google "Canon 7D will not communicate with battery" and you will see that this is a widespread problem. I have been using Canon camera for 30 year but now considering switching to Nikon.

Can you say possible "Class Action Law Suit"?

Peter A. Berggren "Peter Berggren", Amazon
2 October 2011
  • Summary: This camera was purchased as the next step in building a professional photography business. Photographing Sky Divers needs multiple frames per second and this seemed to be the best camera for the price. Unfortunately, it has a very bad focusing problem that Canon is refusing to recognize. The Canon reps acted like high school kids, not knowing much about the camera or photography at all.

Canon 7D - Cream of the Canon Crop

MistaBernie, Overclock
13 September 2011
  • Excerpt: The Canon 7D is currently the most advanced, non 1D crop body currently produced by Canon - even though it's going on three years old. There are lots of things that make this body stand out compared to the other crop (APS-C 1.6x) factor bodies.

Complete disappointment

greg C, Canon
3 August 2011
  • Conclusion: I've been a Canon user all my life and decided to buy the 7D as a second body based on many glowing reviews. There's always a few naysayers in the bunch so I ignored them and bought the camera anyhow. I cannot tell you how thrilled I was when I opened the box and checked out so many cool new features that were included in this gorgeously made body. Then I started taking photos and the disappointment began.
  • Pros: Nice features/settings, Superior build quality
  • Cons: Poor image quality
