Bad Canon 7D (not sharp) or is it me?
Oct 21, 2012

Hello all,

I am not able to achieve sharp images with my new Canon 7D.

I am not sure if it's me who is just not used to the new camera (upgraded from 400D) or if there really is something wrong with the camera.

I did a test:

1. Camera on tripod
2. 50 mm 1.8 prime lens
3. Daylight (right beside big window)
4. Camera set on mirror lockup and timer mode (I don't have remote)
5. Spot metering, single focus point in center
6. Focusing on high contrast motive

I have attached the result. I would really appreciate any comments/feedback.

Thanks in advance.

Canon EOS 400D (EOS Digital Rebel XTi / EOS Kiss Digital X) Canon EOS 7D
