Yes, and the work-around isnt even troublesome, so its not a big issue - auto brightness works great for me - and I do love the camera. People just need to be aware of the problem - if it truly is a general problem and not just my body - noone wants ruined shots if they can avoid it
Last week I bought a new Canon EOS 7D body. Before starting to use the camera for the first time I fully charged my battery and started using it. I used the camera for one week. I shoot raw with back display always on and LCD brightness to very low. I took around 200 images, 10 with live view mode and 2-3 image with flash and a 30 sec video and my lens is 24-105 f/4 L. I turn off the camera when not in use.
But after 200-250 images my battery just rans out of juice. According to canon, the battery supports up to 1000 shots with fully charged battery. I don't use flash at all and I did mostly indoor shoots. What I feel like is my battery is draining pretty fast. Seems very unusual. After facing this issue I tried to find out how fast my battery was draining. So I shoot 3 raw images and found that battery just drained 1% so I keep doing it and eventually found that each 3-4 images taken my battery loses 1% of charge. I can only take around 220-280 images with a fully charged battery.
I hope any Canon 7D user could shed some light with this matter. Let me know if I am doing anything wrong here. Thanks in advance.

Lots of great stuff on B&H's youtube channel.
Had to pull confusingly hard (it was REALLY stuck in there), but everything is back to normal, battery is ok and fits normally again.
Bizarre! But yay.
PMI is a Authorized Dealer (Reseller), Check the list here:
Thanks for all the personal experiences.
Yeah, I knew that PMI is an authorized dealer. So if PMI's ebay ad says "Dealer" and I purchase it, I would be the original purchaser and thus the warranty will be covered by Canon USA. However, if the PMI ebay ad says "Reseller" and I purchase it, I probably would not be the original purchaser and there still may be a question about whether the warranty will be covered by Canon USA. Best to get this stuff in writing from PMI before I suppose.
I guess it's going to be for small sensors only.
