Seriously though, you might want to consider my previous suggestion for this trip to Canon. When you call them, don't ask for the tech team, instead get to Customer Service and ask for a Manager. Once problem and history gets explained, your goal is to have that manager take ownership to help in getting this resolved. They will manage the tech encounter for you and all extra and or necessary communications.

Seriously, this was the only way my old 7d issue got resolved.

You have never dealt with Canon Canada service.

This might not be the place but I can't think of another. I have noticed on a couple different threads that some people are posting 7D2 photographs taken with a variety of lenses that are hmmmmm less than I expect out of mine. My paradigm, again, is how great mine was for 10 months. So when I see these muddy, blurry, out of focus, less than sharp (pick your own phrase) photographs, it's disconcerting. I know there can be all sort of reasons for less than stellar photographs, but they do give me pause.

The posters are thrilled with their photographs. So I guess I should just remain silent. I certainly don't want to say anything to them. That would just make them paranoid like ummmmm me. ;)

Kim,
For those observations you are making online where the poster is happy, you do have to remember that the auto resizing by this or the hosting website often contribute to softness. Others, over reach and heavily cop. In both of these situations there is no ability to comment on the sharpness.

On a quest to search the 7d mark ii autofocus issues to the end of the Internet, I stumbled upon several incredible photographers with similar complaints. Please check Kris Rowe's solution to his "smeary" images on this thread http://www.dpreview.co​m/forums/thread/384442​4?page=4 (external link)

The important post is by Kris in CT, fourth up from the bottom of that page. Did not see in the search of this 289 page thread that this had been suggested. I'd love to hear that it was something this simple but doubt it. You guys may have hashed this out and I missed it.

Welcome. Are you referring to the Wasabi battery being suspected of causing the problem?

Speculation. Nothing wrong with speculation, it can lead to solutions. But for now the role of the battery seems unproven (and unlikely) to me.

Funny, RAM at DPR reports mysterious and inconsistent problems with the AF of his 17-55mm when focusing into the distance, same as I have! No wonder, it's a known fault of that lens.

Agreed. Your response prompted me to continue searching and it appears Kris actually ended up sending his camera in to Canon for AF repair. His post about that showed up here http://www.fredmiranda​.com/forum/topic/13891​49 (external link)

So maybe the battery thing was fleeting or a post to dodge the trolling. Regardless, on a positive note, maybe the magic can return to Pondrader's camera after tech support.

Interesting info on his Wasabi battery, but link didn't show a page 4.

The X makes shooting too easy. It's almost cheating.

I have come to the conclusion that once you have been spoiled by the 1D series with it's accuracy and consistency it is hard to get too excited about another body.

I have read a lot about the 5D3 and 1DX. Both are heralded as having outstanding AF and I agree because I have the 5D3. From the first time I pressed the shutter I knew I had a winner. The 5Dc and 5D2 were no slouches either.

That being said after going to Canon the first time my 7D2 has tracked exceptionally well. I had Canon make a few adjustments just to be sure before my trip and the warranty ran out. With the nice weather I hope to get out in the next few days.

The 1DX was $6000 at the release while the 7D2 was about $1800? The 1DX was Canon's olympic flagship so you know they were going to go that extra step when manufacturing it. Not that is right but no one really knows and never will. I have never shot with the 1DX but with the pixel count and advanced algorithms, etc my guess is I would find it much more forgiving than my 7D2.

You are absolutely correct. I have been shooting with the 1D since the 1D3.
