I got an email this morning that mine shipped yesterday and tracking shows it arriving at my door today. Fingers crossed.

Got it back and its obvious I was having focus issues. I have not been able to test much but do see an immediater difference in images.

Ok... here is my first 7D image posted. This is with a Sigma 105 2.8 @ 5.6 / 1250 ISO / 1/100 handheld and as we know this lens has no IS. Also straight out of camera with exception of sharpening to her left eye (eye on right of image) to bring it a little more into focus with other eye. Now do you consider this sharp?

100% crop


This is the full shot, reduced of course.

For that ISO and the shallow dof you will have with shooting close with only f5.6 it looks perfectly fine to me.

sorry, missed this one the first time. things get lost in my 5 pages of new posts each morning

i am going to agree with Mark here. for an 100% crop from an 18mp camera at 105mm non-is at 1/100, iso 1250, close range at f5.6 this looks very sharp. actually it looks incredibly good. not only does your camera seem up to speed this time, but you have a great copy of that sigma lens.

and you have much steadier hands than I.....

Thanks. I guess Im just use to looking at lower MP, lower pixel density images. Until this camera, 8mp is the highest MP I have owned. This is a full 10mp higher. I guess i need to take that into consideration.

And Mark.. your opinon matters as well. That was not meant to say your opinion didnt count. I guess Im just kind of looking for some reassurance.... as much as I can find
