I misunderstood your earlier post and thought you were referring to the actual DLO slider. On the pictures I have taken with the 1Dx2, the distance slider is not active but the other slides are.
The distance slider is active for the 7D2 even where the same lens is used as on the 1Dx2 so it is clearly something to do with the 1Dx2.

OK, sorry for not being clearer.  At least I can suggest to Canon it's not unique to my camera.  It can't be too important but probably should be fixed.

The biggest sailing yatch in the world visited my town today, of course it had to be a blizzard with zero visibility. I didn't even see it at first, but the fog cleared very slightly so I knew it was there. Drove around and tried to find the best angle. The raw-files looked like a grey card, but managed to get something at least. A mighty beast is, prized at (if I got all my zero's right) 45 million USD.

Hey Viggo. Cool shots and I like the effect with the flat light. Thank you for sharing. ...according to dailymail.com (maybe not so reliable) the yacht, "Sailing Yacht A" is valued at £260million (ca USD 325 million) !!! Damn Russians.

Good ones, Viggo!
It passed between Helsingborg and Elsinore one day earlier and I was down in the harbour shooting a rare bird, but somehow I missed this "little" dingey. More likely because I was there at a different time of day, than because of its size.

Saw in the paper that it was on route to K-sand, Norway. Your shots really shows its immense size. You should print it, and frame it on your wall. Next time someone question your expensive photo hobby just point to the yacht...  ;)

Haha! I should probably do that! "Expensive gear you have here", and I'll just slowly and silently point to that boat, haha, love it!

Took these two today with, at first, very reluctant model, lol (what else is new?)
Zeiss 100 @ f4, 1/250s iso 100. IKEA blinds as background, one Profoto B1 in a gridded 1x4' softbox tilted to provide a gradient on the background, moved her a bit ut so I didn't get shadow on the blind and to fade off the light below her waist. Pretty much SOOC, added a custom color profile, and that's it. Love the dramatic punch, yet very soft light,  I get from the wonderful (gridded) stripbox.

Thanks  :D her grandpa, my dad, gets MUCH more shots where she smiles and looks wonderful. I would rather shoot this side of her with a bit of strong attitude than forcing on some fake smiles, much worse imo. I envy my dad that she smiles properly for :) I get some smiles, but almost never in more setup situation :P

Well good reason to be a very proud dad.  I love the expressions you've managed and understand the challenges.  You'll be most thankful you've put in the effort as the years roll by; too quickly!

My days of shooting my kids were before my renewed interest in photography and really just snapshots, albeit with an F1.  Sometimes a little better but never from the point of view of creating an impressive portrait, rather just a family record.  I wish I could go back since 2 of my 3 daughters loved to pose and ham it up.

That's what I keep telling them, they love to see pictures from when they were babies and so forth, so if they don't want their picture taken, how can they enjoy them in 5-10 years? It helps a bit, I just keep all the gear ready and near if the mood comes along, lol. And by using a Zeiss with mf only I'm not making it easier for myself either, haha.
