Thanks for the replies everyone. Once I am back to my main machine, I will post the shot out of camera.
The reason I bought the 7D before glass, because it was the body I wanted. I did not expect the lens to do miracles and I have done quite a bit of reading on here. I will certainly try the spot focusing, and that was next of my attempts. Long story short, I just wanted to see what other posters have done, and I did not want to spend hours troubleshooting just to find out it is strictly lens, not user error.
Upgraded glass will be coming down the road, I did not like the Rebels, they were not comfortable, I was origionally looking at a 50D, but when the 7D came out, that seemed the better choice for me to grow into for a good timeframe. It fits my hands well, and I liked the button layout.
Again, I appreciate all the feedback, and will post the uncropped pic tonight, and will do some spot AF and testing. I will update this thread just so I remember what I did
Thanks all, you are great :_)
