Hi Guys...

Taking portrait today and discover that my 7D behave funny...

All images taken using Auto focus (central sensor was used), 99% of them back focusing regardless which lens I use.

However, if I use manual focus, it is as sharp as it can be...

Any idea?

Hi Hart,
Sorry to hear about your 7D problem. Don't you have a 2nd 7D body?

I presume that you confirm the problem by comparison of the two bodies...?

Looks like some misalignment some where...?
