I haven't used the 50D, and I've had my 7D for more than 4 years, and by comparison with anything else I've used it's amazing, but still it lets me down sometimes. Sometimes it's because I'm doing one thing and then immediately need to track something else and I don't have my preferred AF settings; but sometimes even with my preferred AF settings I miss focus on some shots. Oddly, in a sequence, one can be dead on and the next one way off, and vice versa. And this with the good-focusing 400 f/5.6L. Don't get me wrong; it's great; but also don't expect miracles.


Its amazing how AI Servo and AI Focus can work so well but sometimes not, too. Choosing the correct metering, f/stop, iso, the lens quirks, mode, etc etc makes taking pics fun.
