LOL, I know Krys. Very strange processes we go through with our equipment. I hope you can get the lens repaired at a relatively reasonable price.

Thanks John! I'm lucky - I've stolen my husband's 70-200 which works just as it should! In return, if my 7D Mk 2 works out OK, he can have my 50D! Fair exchange, eh??? :cool:

Sorry to hear about the 70-200, but glad to hear the camera appears to be all good.

Me too.

Thank you! I can't wait for some good weather to try the camera out again (some hope at the moment)!:p

I was using a 70-200 lens with image stabiliser ON and yes I do have a very steady hand and the bird wasn't moving either. It was on flash setting anyway which could not have a SS faster than 1/250. So, as most of my 70-200 shots were rubbish and the 24-105 shots were great I've investigated further. By HORRIBLE coincidence, I believe the 70-200 lens has chosen now to develop a fault (I dropped it several years ago and it's finally had enough!). When I swap lenses with my husband's 70-200 the problem goes away. Back to square one then! From my point of view, despite having to chuck out a lens, this is good news!

Oh yeah that sucks right there, but at least for the moment, The II is ok. The II is so good it took the 70-200 its knees.:lol:

You're really understanding guys! I felt such an idiot when I found out the lens had become faulty. It's intermittent - something is rattling around inside the lens - if whatever it is falls at the right angle, it can take a good photo, if it falls at the wrong angle, it snaps rubbish. Hardly a pillar of reliability!!! :cool: :cool: :cool:

I generally discover that the problem is directly behind the camera.

Just talked to Canon USA again. I was told that the camera is finished but they spent all day today fixing/calibrating it and it probably wasn't shipping out today, but tomorrow, so i won't have it back until friday.

I was told that the notes said the AF system had to be adjusted electronically.

So we'll see when i get it back. I have a feeling there are many more affected 7D ii's out in the world than just mine, and all of the microadjusting, the anti "microblurring" (this seems as mythical as the 100-400 being a dust pump) techniques in the world are not going to help.

To all of those having problems, despite what the internet says, it may not be you, it may be your camera.

I'll post back when I have the camera back.
