Does anyone know if the 7D still only allows for a 3-shot bracket?

It looks like it does, but not specifically mentioned.

If it still is only 3 shots, I wish they would wake up and do a 5 shot option.

I'm not sure on the exposure count, but the EV+/- has been extended to +/- 5 instead of 3

Yes, actually total of 8 stops -/+.

That only shows more stops of exposure adjustment. Not more than 3 bracketed shots.

AEB: +/–3 EV, with 1/2 or 1/3 stepping (C.Fn I-1)

In the custom functions (C.Fn I) there is no mention of expansion beyond 3 shots, so I wouldn't bet on it.

Only on the exposure compensation, but not on the AEB range. You are still limited to 6EV of difference (which is a lot anyway) between your minimum and maximum on an AEB sequence.

For example, you could dial in +5 on the compensation and do a -3,0,+3 sequence which will yield +2,+5,+8, but you can't do -5,0,+5.

Nikon's system (Dx/Dxxx) uses a max step of 1EV for up to 9 shots, for instance, allowing for a maximum of 8EV (also with +/-5 EV max exp comp) of total range from minimum to maximum in a sequence. But it doesn't allow you to go -4,0,+4, you have to go -4,-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3,4, even if you wanted only 3 or 5 shots spanning that range. Everybody has some oddities to their systems.

Yeah. I sometimes do a 5-shot HDR. With the Canon this means moving the dial when it's on the tripod and I'd like to not have to do that.
