Solved the problem in March 2012 by buying the 5D MKIII :).

LOL, I did the same thing and I'm very pleased with the move. However I only did it to consolidate my 5D2 and 7D, not because my 7D was deficient. It was deficient, before I sent it back to Canon for calibration. The AF worked great after that.

I also brought mine back to Canon for testing. I looked at their test shots and it proved my point. They seemed to think that many OOF shots are to be expected - their subject was a slow moving car swerving towards the camera at about 10-15 kph. The 7D still had trouble even at that speed. They did not suggest recalibration. Some shots were perfect - many OOF.
