just got 7d, I am really frustrated right now.
Aug 27, 2012

Hi, guys. really need help...I am really in a pain right now.
I just sold all my Pentax gear and bought canon 7d today.
I bought canon 7d with sigma 17-50 f2.8 and tokina 11-16 f2.8
and after keep shoot and shoot, I find it miss focus way too much.

interesting is everytime I use live view focus, it focus spot on, but when I switch to VF focus, the it misfocus a lot.

so I went to exchange. I thought the problem is camera. because both lens misfocus when I use VF to focus and both focus very well with live view.
but after exchange, I still got same problem.
now I am really frustrated. I want to cry. I do not know what to do.

I do not think I have problem of how to focus. I just set at single point at center.

I tried microadjust. it might fix at certain focal distance but when I zoom it mess up the focus again.
so what is the issue. any clue??

why it focus so well with live view?? but so bad with VF. I know it is two different focus system.

Canon EOS 7D
