Strange thing this that not more people respond.

Seems like nobody is aware of this broken part of the 7D firmware. I have tried to post similar complaint on other forums and have gotten zero response there too.

And I haven't seen any photo blog mentioning this either.

If nobody is vocal about this I doubt Canon cares about fixing it.

I actually once thought I have the same problem until I picked the manual audio control settings.  Perhaps we should do a mini-survey on types or brands of external microphone that seem prone to this problem?  At any rate, if the problem did not exist before the firmware upgrade, then Canon should very easily find out what's wrong!
