Has anybody had a focus problem with a 7D ?
If i use the 24-70 or the 28-105 at 2.8-4.5 it looks like the camera has focused about 10ft behind where it should have
it's fine above 4.5
my 40D doesn't have this problem & is pin sharp
now every body says the 7D should be the better camera but in low light i tend to use the 40D
any thoughts on this ?

The camera and lens possibly needs a microadjustment. The camera manual should explain the procedure.
look at some of the set up videos for the 7d if youv not already
If it is 10ft it certainly isn't microadjustment... more information is needed, i.e focus mode, single point etc...
I went through three 7D bodies having "soft" focus problems some three years ago when I first bought my 7D. In the end Canon asked for all my lenses and the body be sent to them and they carried out a "calibration" and no problems since. There certainly can be an issue.
