Question about 7D video
8 months ago

I'm getting ready to buy a used 7d and have a question regarding video before I close the deal.

Background,..... when I bought my SL1, I did not know that video would be less than satisfactory with anything but STM lenses. My workaround on this with third party and non STM lenses, is to half press the shutter button, then begin video. These are usually at birds or animals in the distance and the results are fine, with focus holding.

Will this half press to focus, with AF servo off, work as well  on the 7d? Thanks!
