One has a problem with a focus issue that affects many bodies. The 7D, very few.

And just google 70D focus problem for hours of reading.


If you get one (70D) make sure you test for the focus issue while you can still return it. As canon customer service and repair will do nothing to help you once you are outside of that.

Sorry, but I really can't help laughing at this. Go back in time a few years and you'll find just as many threads, with just as many posts, complaining about the focus issues of the 7D. Just Google '7D focus problems' for hours of reading.

Of course, most of those problems turned out to be a PEBV issue. I imagine that most of the 70D problems will turn out to be the same.

I think every model is going to have it's flaws. I just bought the 70D and it's focus is out of this world. ( in a good way ) :)

Honestly, so why would one buy a Canon 70D if the 7D has almost the same image quality but more advanced AF system and a better build quality, with FIXED problems? Instead of risking a 70D with AF problems, with some (no offense) cool features which don't really add anything (besides great filming capabilities).

Because the 70D's AF is better than the 7D's; its build quality is just as good; and its IQ is better than the 7D's.

And I say this as a hugely enthusiastic user of the 7D since December 2009...

Yep - the troll (the first person I've put on my forum "ignore" list in 5 years) clearly speaking in the absence of any intelligence of (much less actual experience of) the 7D's history...

And yet, as I've recently said in another thread, the 7D is now being held up as an AF paragon.

Funny, that...

What's PEBV ????

In IT support there's an acronym PEBKAC - Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair. Over the years I've come to realise that many reported camera/lens posts are due to PEBV - Problem Exists Behind Viewfinder.
