Don't lend your camera!
1

My daughter was here from up north during spring break and forgot to bring her 7D so I lent her my 70D with battery pack and 28-135 lens. She took it everywhere during that week including the beach.

I took it out yesterday and found that the camera does not AF, after trying several lenses I came to the conclusion that the trigger button doesn't go down half way to activate the AF but goes directly to shooting pictures.

Now I can either spend some $$ and send it to canon for repair or use it as a manual focus camera. The results of lending her the camera surprised me because she is a seasoned photographer but seems to beat up the cams. I didn't bother mentioning this to her but I'm obviously not happy.
