[QUOTE="Charles"]\nBig Snip [/QUOTE]\n[QUOTE]\nThe AF issues are real.[/QUOTE]\n[QUOTE]\nNo doubt that many AF-7D posts are from first-time digital SLR buyers who\ndon't know how to use their new camera, BUT, this is a real issue for the\n7D. QA (quality assurance) will kick in and this issue will be solved. I\nhave faith in Canon.[/QUOTE]\n\nHow many folks brand new to dSLR's start out by buying\na 7D? I'd suspect that the number is miniscule.\n\nAnd quality control should have kicked in before the camera\nwas generally shipped.\n\nAnd no, I have no particular animus toward Canon. In fact I'm\na Canon owner. And yes, the camera is a dSLR.
