I've read on other sites about other cases of camera lockup, I think I'll wait a while on this update, hopefully Canon is looking into this.

Wow.....

So glad I've just moved home, so had no time to do the upgrade.

Looks like we need a little "fix" to get the 7D back to its place as a "top class camera for middle-class money"...

Regards,

Simon.....still waiting....

Oh man i upgraded mine and havnt gotten to use it very much..

Got to use it yesterday.. No locking up issue but i did notice the burst "feels" better while shooting some wasps...

The only thing i will note is it seemed my flash exposure was REALLY goofy yesterday when i used my macro twilight, But today it was back to working fine.. So i dunno...

Used the camera for five different shoots this weekend with no issues. Two were an hour each around twilight so it never went to sleep. The other three were wildlife from a kayak so it slept many times.

Mine was fine after the upgrade untill it went into the sleep mode after taking a photo where it would lock/freeze up with the top lcd still showing the settings.
Im still waiting to hear from Canon, they recieved it last Wednesday and are talking about a 15 Day turnaround.
Im back trying to get used to my old Canon G3, boy haven't they got a tiny screen...:)

I haven't used mine too much since preforming the upgrade but have made it a point to notice this happening. So far goes to sleep and powers back up as normal upon pressing the shutter button.

After seeing the reports of the problems some are having, and there are many others that aren't. Mine too is faultless...so far, and I did the upgrade only a few days after it was released, so I have been shooting many times since with lots of sleep/awaken cycles.

As canon have accepted there is a glitch in the firmware, it appears to be more that don't have the problem than do, (unscientific browsing on the web research here!) I wonder then if it is a serial number range specific problem?

I have a mate who just bought one with old 1.3? firmware, and I told him to just hold out until they have it sorted....just in case.

Well, in case anyone is looking at unaffected vs/ affected ratios I am happy to report that after doing the firmware upgrade and then shooting a soccer game Saturday I had no issues at all- thankfully, as I only came across this thread after doing the upgrade.

No problems here either. I just did the upgrade last week, took the camera out over the weekend and shot all three days with excellent results and many sleep cycles. Looks gold from my perspective.
