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.
  • Cons: out of focus, soft focus, exposure

Price is HIGH

rabinarayan, Amazon

  • 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.

Disappointed.

4 April 2012
  • Summary: I have used the Canon 7d in the past and it has been a tremendous camera that I can rely on. That being said, I took 5 photos with this new 7d and got an "Err 20" popping up on the screen! Basically, a death sentence for the camera... Disappointment.

I loved this camera too bad it is already broken

Donald J., Newegg
16 November 2011

Google "Canon 7D will not communicate with battery" and you will see that this is a widespread problem. I hav...
