Ok, I have downloaded the english 5D manual. I did have already the english 7D manual. Surprise, surprise, accordings to these manuals the 5D flash requires only a minimum focal length of 18 mm, while the 7D requires at least 24 mm. If true, that would really be a severe disadvantage of the 7D and I really can't believe it. I will check it with my 18-70mm kit lense.

a surprising use for my D lens(I have the kit lens and a 50 2.8 D) is for my recently purchase Maxxum 7 film camera(does not count the kit lens). With the D lens the DOF preview botton activates a display on the Maxxum 7 screen for a depth of field graph....

Just FYI...
