I have owned the 7D for just over a year and I cannot convince myself that the auto focus works well. Too many of my shots seem soft and a little out of focus.I have sent my 24 - 105 back to Canon for recalibrating but it has made no difference. I am mad with myself for not doing something about it within the year so that I could ask Canon to look at it under warranty. Is it just my technique that is wanting, or have others had inexplicable focussing problems?
When I first got my 7D, I was not happy with it at all, the noise at low ISO was disappointing and it wasn't impressive sharpness-wise. I sent it to Canon and it came back much better, notes mentioned some adjustments to the focus assembly. I read this isn't very uncommon with earlier 7D units.
I still find images were I am not impressed with sharpness often, I am not sure how much of this is me and how much of it is the body. It seems results are very inconsistent. I do get some very sharp images from the 7D at times, so I believe it is just me at this point.
