Thanks!  Yes, the AF system on the 7D threw me about for a bit.  The manual was more than confusing to me.  Went to Google and found information that showed me exactly what I was missing and now I better understand and more importantly can select AF points.

Hopefully I'll get some time to view the videos because this is a more complex system than the 20D was.

My first few test images were pretty good given light levels and all.  Not happy with the 28-135IS but for a kit lens it is not bad.  Need to see what the 7D will do with the Tamron 28-75 F2.8 and my 70-200 F4 L (non-IS).

Take care,

Congratulations on your new 7D, it is an awesome camera!
If you have the time (they're about 30 minutes each) watch all three of these videos, if not at least watch the 3rd one as it has a lot of information on the 7D auto focus system.
