Focus on canon 7D


21 Aug 2012 8:42PM
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.

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.
