Sharp photo by 7D?

Husain Akhtar , Nov 18, 2012; 02:26 p.m.

Perhaps those who promoted 7D would like to post any unprocessed photos to prove the 7D 'sharpness' - I have not seen so much internet discussion about the focus problems related to one camera i.e. 7D.

I think 7D has focus problem by design and it does not need lab test conditions to prove this since other Canon cameras don't need these sophisticated tests to prove that the photographers are at fault!

Without updating my camera habits or photo taking techniques or going through do this or do that, I had no focus problem with my 500D and have no problems with 5Dll either!

No, it does not. It's capable of fantastically sharp images, used properly.

Husain, this nonsense has been bounced around the internet since the camera was released more than three years ago - do we really have to go over it all, all over again?

Maybe yours needs AFMA; maybe yours has a fault; maybe you need to understand that by definition, densely-packed, small-pixel sensors may need a different sharpening approach; and maybe your approach to evaluating sharpness is flawed.

But the 7D does not have a "focus problem" - it wouldn't be the world's most popular APS-C sport/wildlife camera if it couldn't focus and couldn't produce amazing sharpness.

Share a 'sharp' image, please!

"Share a 'sharp' image, please!"

Hundred of thousands of these cameras have been sold nuff said.

I have to try really hard to get a out of focus image from my 7D. It's almost impossible unless I let the camera decide what it thinks the subject is (auto AF point selection). Love the spot AF feature for tele and macro. Here's a few where it "managed" to lock focus:

Thanks! Are these photos with sharp edges unprocessed? Would be interesting to see the level of sharpness in 100% crops!

I'm wondering why the general forum here is feeding Husain. If we leave him alone maybe he'll go away?

Husain - its clear that the 7D isn't meeting your needs. You've been posting about it for weeks. Perhaps its time to try a different camera and lens?

Husain Akhtar , Nov 18, 2012; 05:42 p.m.

David, why are so worked up and defensive - after all it is a camera forum. Yes, I'm disappointed with 7D which I added to my 5Dll after reading so much about it here and believing in it simply to find that perhaps it was all promotional stuff - I have simply wasted my money and this forum is partly responsible for it! This is precisely why I'm here!

Keith Reeder , Nov 18, 2012; 06:10 p.m.

No, Husain.

Nobody here lied to you, so whatever your problem is, it wasn't caused by the forum.
