Again, maybe I'm doing something wrong here. Maybe it's the horrible light, maybe the aperture is too wide, maybe it's motion blur...it just seems very odd to me, however, that it's so soft.

It is none of these tings. focus plane is plainly behind the object. AF failed. nice and simple.

So, did it fail on just this one particular shot or do you think there is something fundamentally wrong with the AF on my 7D?  Again, just to be clear to anyone reading, I'm not saying "my 7D is soft", I'm just merely asking so I can learn what's causing the problem.  I'm not expecting the 7D (or even a 1D) to nail the focus on every single occasion...it can certainly miss and we have all experienced that.  I'm just trying to find out if there's something fundamentally wrong with my camera.  Perhaps that is something only a technician at Canon can answer?
