After a lot of research and confusions, I recently bought my first DSLR, a Canon 7D with 15-85 IS USM kit lens.

Though the overall build quality is superb. There is one minor problem which i dunno if is common. I may be nitpicking, but the memory card door, though it opens and locks smoothly and tightly, when is closed there is mild squeezy sound on pressing the bottom corner of the memory card door. And when I hold the camera bit closer to my ear I can hear the (kinda tiku tiku) sound with each press. This in no way hampers the camera operations or my picture taking skills but its sorta weird after investing so much in a camera as a beginner. Can any 7D user comment please?

That is due to the rubber water-resistant material used to seal the door against moisture. Be glad it is doing it.
