I updated to 2.0.3 and now every time I open the card slot or turn the camera off for couple of seconds, it turns my AF micro adjustment setting to disabled. It still remembers the adjustment value, but is not using it any more.

Out of curiousity, do you have Orientation Linked AF Point set to 1: Select different AF points?  I ask because the 1D X had a similar issue on firmware 1.0.2, which was corrected with 1.0.6.

Dismaying to hear that.  It doesn't do that to my 7D after updating yesterday.  But honestly, I'm beginning to wonder if Canon is putting out buggy 7D firmware updates to frustrate us all into buying their new version of the 7D when it comes out!

Sorry, false alarm. It was just me being dumb. I was on C1, so every time I turned camera off and on it reloaded that setting from memory. On M it works as expected.  I just got it from service after shutter/mirror replacement and they must have made some changes. I got confused because I also have 1D mark iv and there loading settings doesn't influence AF micro adjustment.

Glad to hear it!  I'll stop with the conspiracy theories now  ;)

I've updated to 2.0.3 and don't have any problems with either of these issues.   I have AF Microadjustment set to Adjust by lens and it doesn't revert to Disable when 7D powered off, or when CF card removed and restored.   Using either setting of Orientation Linked AF point does not cause AF Microadjustment to Disable.

Did you try re-installing 2.0.3, afterward being sure to then power off and remove and reinstall battery?

Off to Leuchars Airshow tomorrow, first use of v2.0.3 running on gripped 7D in anger (genuine grip & genuine batteries) Will be in AiServo and H burst for most of the day so will look out for and report on any problems.

Only using a 60MB/s UDMA card, so may not even reach full speed potential of camera / buffer.

Worked a treat, I got a bit silly and forgot about the speed of the camera, and shot 1200 images.

Heres a couple of the nicer ones.

No lock up issues at all.  Buffer depth astounding.

Does the firmware update reduce the noise at ISO100? I find that really grainy noise even at base ISO is really the major disappointment with this body. In fact it's so bad I don't know why anyone would use it. I personally prefer the images from the 50D, and think Canon took a backwards step with this sensor.

I have found an issue with this 7D firmware version 2.0.3, that I am no longer able to register focus points. I hope that Canon will solve this major issue.

Did you completely cycle the power after the update? Remove the battery for a while to erase old memory settings and ensure the new firmware is properly loaded.

I have been having a problem with the upgrade... performed flawlessly before the upgrade, now, it goes black every 20-30 shutter actuations and I have to power down and restart to get it to come back. It does this regardless of the lenses used.

Anyone having this issue?
