Yogi - are you using ML on your 7D? I'm liking it but when the camera turns off ML seems to disappear. I can't get it back unless I do a firmware update...

I think that's a known issue with the 7D ML. It needs to be loaded from scratch every time you turn the camera on.

I could be wrong, but I thought I'd read that somewhere.

Thanks M Six! It's still in alpha so I guess it has its quirks.

No, I haven't used it yet. My only card reader (built into Canon printer) is not capable of writing files to a card, only reading them. So, I currently have no way to write the ML files to a CF card.

That is correct. The current Alpha release for the 7D is not yet designed to use the 'bootflag' like the other versions do. Ir must be loaded each time the camera is turned on or is returned to service after sleep mode.

You can write files to the card through USB drag n drop

I can't see any way to do that in Win XP. Windows Explorer is showing the picture files but not the parent folder. It should be "100EOS7D" (I can see it on the printer reader) but it just doesn't show in Explorer. Even so, the card is somehow 'write protected' when in the camera and I cannot even copy a picture file to the card.

Am I missing something?

Use a card reader to read the card. The camera is putting additional software in between you and the card.

Like I said in my post above, the only card reader that I have is in my Canon printer and it can only read, not write files to the card. Is that 'normal'? Is there any work-around?

Go to WalMart (or any similar retail outlet) and buy a USB card reader. That's the best workaround you'll find. They are not at all expensive.

Just an update...
I bought the Optix V5+ AF Confirm PCB Chip AI to Canon adapter from allteamgo on eBay. It was near $50 but works great. Good fit on the lens and body and is way easier to program than a Hasselblad to Canon AF confirm adapter I used to have.

So far so good, although the focusing on Nikon's seems a bit backwards to what I'm used to. Great way to bring new life to the lens and it seems really sharp. Better than the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 I used to own. Will try to get some pics up later.
