Lenses / Re: Normal Lens or High-End Compact?

funny you ask this as I have been walking around a lot with my 70-200 and not bothering to take any other lens with me and using my iphone as my wide angle camera.  Seems to work for me, IQ is on par with just about any other mid range PS out there plus it has the advantage of being very light and something Id take with me anyway.  It also is the best PS on the market for taking the photograph, doing some quick pp through snapseed and off to my facebook or flickr accounts.  But if that doesn't work for you I'd invest in the 17-55 f2.8 IS over any of the wide to normal primes especially on APS C.  Its way more flexible and you don't lose much if anything in the IQ department.  My 17-55 was glued to my 7d.

If you're taking photos with facebook or flickr as the only location of the end-product, you don't need a DSLR.

I have a 7D, and I chose it over the 5DII. My decision was not based on price, but functionality. To me the autofocus of the 7D was much more important than the other 5DII features (lower high ISO noise....that's about it).

Go straight for the 5DIII or be happy with the 7D. I would not do an even swap with a 5DII. 6D seems like a 5DII so same goes for that.

I never thought this would actually happen...

I was upset that I picked the two cameras that never got hacked, the 450D and the 7D...

But great news! I want the zebra feature.

This is a might not see a Nikon like that either.

Thanks for your help, everyone who responded. I'll see if I can get it repaired.

I'd call that unacceptably soft.  Given your shutter speeds, it's unlikely to be motion blur or camera shake (especially the second shot at 1/640 s).  Could be the AF, could be the lens.  I'd suggest testing with Live View and manual focus (or autofocus in Live View, as long as you're not using the quick mode where the mirror flips up) and see if that's sharp, as elflord suggests.  If that works, you need AFMA on your 7D (XSi doesn't support it).  If it's still just as soft, I'd contact Canon Service.

Looks like it could be out of focus. Did you try manually focusing in live view to determine whether it's the AF or the optics ? If it's a focus problem, you could try microfocus-adjusting (since your body supports it) and see if you can get the longer shots to work without messing up your macro shots.

Unfortunately, I can't seem to focus it even in live view mode. :(
How much would this sort of repair cost? What could even be wrong?

It's difficult to say if I always had this problem, but I just noticed it recently. Lens works fine for macro shots but everything else is soft. Here are some examples, all shot at high shutter speeds on my 7D and my XSi. Even the focus point is not in-focus. It is worst at f/2.8 and gets "OK" at f/8, but still worse than my 70-300mm IS USM.

I did not notice this until yesterday when 30 out of 30 shots had this hazy/out of focus look to them.
