The only issue I had with my lens on the 7D and 7D mk 2 was the need to micro-adjust the bodies to the lens. I relatively simple process. There is lots of advice online on how to do that.

mine seemed to have no front- or back-focusing problems - pretty much focused where i aimed it right out of the box.

I was lucky enough to stumble upon one last night sitting in the top of a 20' or so tall tree. Little guy never moved, just looked around and ignored us completely even when were right below it. Was able to get lots of pics but none will be as nice as these, it was dusk and the Sigma 135-400 I was using it not great wide open. Still, always fun to get pics of a new bird as you must know

Just a mile or so outside of the Sequim Bay State Park. My wife and were up there trying to find a place to walk the dog that wasn't so crowded and ended up on the Olympic Discovery trail. We saw a really neat looking meadow on the side of it and since it had no sign saying no trespassing we went and explored. I just looked up and saw this little round ball on the top of the tree and had no idea what it was at first. Pure chance that we saw it though it might be a regular in that area. I'm sure I will be back at some point to see if it shows up again.
