Had a similar issue with an old PowerShot A70 years ago and it was a hardware problem.

So I decided to get 60D. Now the question is regarding what lens and accessories to get.My suggestion: Get the 15-85 as your standard zoom. It has a great focal range (esp. wide-angle, compared to the 18-55), good build quality (except for zoom creep) and very good image quality. Regarding the flash: The 430EX II isn't that expensive and does just about everything you would want from a flash (especially since you can trigger it remotely with the 60D). The 270EX II ("II" is important since the first version can't be triggered remotely) sometimes lacks a bit of power when bouncing (forcing you to increase the ISO a bit) but it's a lot smaller and lighter.
1) Lens wise I will get 50 1.8 and I am leaning towards 15-85, but as a new DSLR user, will I be able to tell a difference between it and 400 pounds cheaper 18-55 IS ii? Is it worth getting 18-55 now, and later upgrading to 15-85 if I need to, or is it better to buy it in the first place and save those 70 pounds (good lens is always a good investment, right? )
(Though about 24-105 too, but being my main lens, 24 would be not wide enough on crop).
2) As for the future, I will want to get cheap telezoom, which I would use rarely (IS 55-250 fits here well, but maybe you would recommend another one (range and price are the important factors here, because I would use it rarely anyway (if I get 15-85).
Yeah but the issue here is sharpness... and they seem to be pretty sharp.It's okay but it's far from mindblowing. Whenever artificial light in involved and you can shoot at base ISO with the lens stopped down a bit, you can get that kind of sharpness even with a rebel and a kit lens. Seriously.
I believe that we will see a successor of the current 7D at not earlier than Photokina in September or in the early 2013.
It's the 5D Mark III's time now
No time for 7D Mark II
Only pressure I can think of is that the 650D puts them between a rock and a hard place - either they gimp the 650D so it doesn't get close/surpass other model lines that are a lot older (eg sensor or DIGIC chip wise).Canon has released new sensors and DIGIC chips in lower-end cameras before, so I don't think they have to hold back anything from the 650D. There are still enough other things to differentiate the 650D from the higher camera lines, IMHO.
I don't think they'd hold back on the DIGIC 5 as it's already on announced possibly released Canon Point & Shoots.
As for the sensor - we simply don't know. We dont' know how the shake up of the 1 series line with the 1DX and the 5DIII/5DX with the 5D and possibly 7D lines will filter down.
lets face it 7D is a 3 years old camera ( its time to be upgraded).It may be one of the oldest cameras in Canon's lineup but it's certainly not "an old camera" technically:
Adobe has introduced lossy compression for dng files. It is said to produce better quality images, and still have much smaller files than regular DNG.If it uses lossy compression, the result can not be better than the original file. Better quality than JPG - yes, but not better than the original RAW/DNG file.
