The 7D was released on 9/1/2009. That is about 63 in camera years. Hey, it happens to the best of us from time to time. Do a lingerie shoot. That may help.

My images are not tack sharp. I am not interested in replacing my camera, and I would never spary compressed air into my camera.

Might want to check that you have not inadvertently switched on body MFA and are by default applying MFA to all your images.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

It's because of the imminent launch of the 7D MkII. It's a well-known effect whereby launch of a new model immediately causes older cameras to become a pile of crud, thus providing the excuse to replace it with the new shiny toy.

Maybe Canon has secretly activated the "soft focus" effect they built into the 7D in anticipation of the 7D Mark II shipping. :)

Does your friend also live in the suburbs of Chicago? Maybe its smog in the atmosphere...

The razing of the OP is perhaps uncalled for. If you go to his profile you will see he has some serious equipment. If you go to his home page it is clearly evident he knows how to take a tack sharp image.

Perhaps it would help if he got back to his thread and posted some sample shots showing the issue. He's kind of disappeared.


Some Canon stuff and a little bit of Yongnuo.

This was my first thought as well.

Lots of reasons he could have temporarily disappeared; something like a simple business trip taking him away from the camera for several days. But I see no reason to use sarcasm in replies. If that is what I got in my early years of requesting help, I too might have shied away.
