Thank you for the information scriveyn.

So there are at least two different designs of 80D on the market? I see you are in Germany. I am also on the european market. Sounds a bit strange if Canon have two designs on the same market. I bought mine 80D from a Canon recomended dealer and the service was done by Canon service center.

Attached is a pic of the battery door. No spring in this design.

By spring I meant that the battery pops up a bit when the white plastic thingy is moved aside.
The lid of the battery compartment doesn't have a spring, nor had it on my 60D.

Feel sorry for you, you must have caught a bad one.

I've had mine for more than half a year now.

For me:

  • no freezing
  • carrying with the 100-400 II with the right hand side grip over a couple of hours so far is fine
  • spring in the battery compartment present and working


My 80D did NOT come with a spring loaded door for the battery.

Out in the garden again today. It's amazing how there is ALWAYS some breeze, even when you think there isn't! Very difficult to keep a flower absolutely still when you're outside. This one illustrates the depth of colour which the 80D provides - just one of the reasons why I love the camera.

Trying out the 80d with a sigma 18-300mm. I think it is a pretty good combo!

The spring should be in the inside, at the bottom of the battery well.

vmad I despise the wind. It is the single thing that can take the fun out of any of my hobbies.

Beautiful color on that flower. Are you finding the 80D to handle the red channel OK? Canons have always had an issue with clipping the reds.

My 80D's battery door is not spring loaded. The battery release (little white tab) is spring loaded.

No problem with the reds at all. Handles them superbly. Yellows are great, too. Nice bird pic. Why are birds on your side of the pond so colourful - even the 'black'birds! They're just black in the UK. :-)

Absolutely agree. I've had days when I got home without a single usable shot because of the wind. Ony of my most frustrating moments was trying to shoot insects on a wheeping willow in a (very light) breeze...

We have some good variety here in the Colonies, sir :-) But for the real vibrancy, you'll need to go Down Under. Definitely not fair!

Your macro shots are exquisite. Aside from the obvious fact that you are getting killer photos, how do you like using the 65mm on the 80D?
