Yup it is a bad habit of mine keeping the center af point in the middle with out recomposing, Or move it around to the eye to keep the focus there. I need more practice for doing that. I think it was only 30 feet high. The tree was really not that high.

If you have not done so, consider using the multi-controller button to move around the focus points. With the muli-controller, you can move left, right, up and down pretty rapidly (as fast as you can move that thumb). Once you're done, just press it straight in and it returns to the center AF point and vice versa to the last point you had selected. I also enable the setting (don't have it in front of me at the moment) so that as I am moving the AF points it continues without stopping at the edge of the AF points (allows it to scroll if it you will).

Start exercising that right thumb so it can more naturally move the AF point joy stick (eh I mean multicontroller)
On a more serious note, to me, it seems like the joy stick was more multidimensional on the 7d whereas on the 7dii it seems only up/down/left/right.

I do that constantly Al, its fast a if you know your shooting say birds on a branch bumping up a point or two can make framing much less of a pain

Im ok with that guy, moving up and over is so fast up-up-over is a positive feel, I like to work that way.

I was out with my 7Dii all morning and on the way back to the car it went dead. It won't turn on, I have tried it with every battery in the house. They are not ALL dead. And a new SD card. Any ideas out there? It won't power up at all. It was working fine all morning, I was hiking with it for several hours and changed the battery late in the morning (it worked fine with the charged battery)

Either the power-switch is broken. Or your PCB needs to be replaced.

I'm starting to explore the higher ISOs with this camera. This one at ISO 1600, taken yesterday, with the 100-400 ii. This had been my nemesis bird in terms of getting a good shot. Finally got her...Northern Harrier female.
