Had 2 of these, first 1 was purchased on day of release and the focus was horrendous so that went back and I got another one, even after playing with the AFMA I was never really happy with it so I took it back.
The last time I saw an F22 at Lakenheath i DIDN'T photoshop it...

Same issues and history as Skip.

If I changed case number in AF settings for example 6. It would register as 6 on camera but when looked at image on pc it would go back to the default factory setting.

Changed to Nikon.

Most 7D mark 1s had terrible focus issues sounds like Mark 2 follows that trend!

When you say focus issues can you elaborate a bit more please. Is it that it can't acquire focus or is it focusing on a different area to the focus point. Also what settings are you using on the camera

I must have been unlucky, :whistle: my 7D was great, my 7d MK2 is even better and since I got the 100 400 Mk2 need I say more.
Canon 5D Mk4 plus long lenses, and lots of hope!
