It's a great shame that I can't post the originals here, seem to always get resized sad.png

 

Anyway glorious sun, 7D + 400mm/f5.6 (plus spaniel dancing around my heels). IS would be nice on this lens at times, also I wonder where my Manfrotto monopod is?

I'm waiting for the sun now, still bloody raining sad.png

 

Having just booked flight and car to visit the rock in June I may well bring it with me.

 

I thought one of the major selling points for the 7d is that it is weather proofed :-)

Buy a house, put up some Aerials, grow some vegetables and retire.

 

Switzerland is f**king expensive, I mean seriously so.

Yeah. But why the rock? Why not Thailand, or Mexico even?

 

Veggies grow faster in hot places...... and you have more to do while you wait for them to grow :-)

Hope you folks won't mind me posting here, as a Newbie, as I don't know how to start a new thread and I need to pick the brains of all you wonderful EOS 7d users. (Mods, please let me know if I'm breaking some rule or other - thanks)

I bought a nearly new 7d recently from a friend of a friend who was upgrading to full-frame.

Problem I have is it won’t lock the focus, it just keeps seeking and seeking and won’t let me take a photo. Really don’t want to have to go back to focussing manually, but other people are snapping away next to me, all I can hear is whirr, rattle, whirr as this thing constantly seeks the correct focus. Lenses work fine on older (350d) bodies, just not on the 7d.

Do I need to upgrade my lenses, get the 7d body fixed, or could it be the settings?
Any advice would be invaluable – thanks.

Make sure the pins/contacts between the camera and lens are clean.

Nice camera btw, I have a 7D Mk 1.
