...does it matter?

Uhm.... yeah! Do you think posters should continue to ask a question after it's been repeatedly been answered in the same thread? I don't.

I could live without that two-position ON switch to be honest.

Yeah, the change made with the 7D on switch and dedicated wheel lock switch made it a much better design.

They created another thread and it was merged into this one. Dunno why they created another thread, though.

Geez.

All I'm saying is that if a person needs help and you want to help, then help.
If you don't want to help, then don't. It's unnecessary to point out that it's been answered already so no need to answer anymore etc. Who knows? Maybe he missed the first few threads or 2 threads merged into 1.

And 440roadrunner, anybody can RTFM. That doesn't mean you can't miss a thing or 2. I would personally find it insulting if somebody told me to RTFM. It's the F that throws me off.

I'm gonna stop trolling. I do have a report to finish. Some of you guys should do it too.

Is it just me, or did the OP completely ignore the first two responses and just ask the same questio again, after he was already how to fix it? The first two responses with the correct answer were made pretty much right after he made the original post. Then, 9 hours later, after the first two posts he asks the same question again (ignoring the first couple of responses). Then 3 more people tell him the same thing that the first to responses told him, and THEN he gets it.

When I read it, I was guessing that he had cross-posted the same question in another sub-forum and the mods had consolidated the threads.

My 1D Mark II had a dedicated wheel switch but on my 1D Mark III both functions are combined on one switch.

Which of the two do you prefer?

The Mark III. The early 1D series cameras required two hands for most operations but with the Mark III most things can now be done just by pressing one button.

I am sorry for bumping this thread up but I have the same problem and I was searching the forum, and just found this thread today. I read the camera manual, and I found the explanation regarding the ON switch, like it is said in this tread and I did tried that way, to put the ON switch all the way up but it still won´t change. I tried both positions middle one, and upper one, just to make sure I was not doing something wrong, and still aperture doesn´t change when I turn the wheel in manual mode. It is locked on f 7.1.

I tried to ask a friend who uses 7D how to change it on my 50D, and he told me the same thing, to put the switch up and than turn the wheel, and I gave him my camera so he can do it himself, and he could not change it either, so he just shrugged and returned me my camera. I am really clueless of what else to try????

edit: just to add that my custom settings C.Fn IV-1 - are set to 3 (AE lock/metering + AF start)... I have no idea if it has anything to do with this confusion, but I thought to mention just in case *shrug*

edit 2 : I found the solution. Someone on the other message board suggested that I clear all custom functions, and after I did that all works normal again! :)
