7D Mark II focus Problems

Hello Canon Forums,


I have the 7D Mark II for a while now, but I still have annoying problems with the autofocus.


I usually shoot People, and while a very little percentage of the pictures are stunningly sharp (it looks like they coud crunch into fragments every second Smiley Very Happy ), 90% of them are not. They are okisch, but the AF very often does not hit where I want it to.

I updated to firmware 1.04 a while ago - didnt help.

My lenses are:

Canon 50mm 1.8

Tamron 70-200 2,8

Tamron 24-70 2.8


I have the same problem with all lenses.

I am not sure whether it is the camera - or me.


Usually I set the AF point using the joystick to make it point at one eye of the person.

My AF settings are:


Case 1 - but it seems that doesnt matter


Lens electronic MF -> on

AF-assist beam firering on

one shot priority -> full focus


I already did micro adjustment - didnt help a lot.


Also I am usin the single square as AF mode (not the square within the square).


Has anybody had the same problem or some Idea how I get my AF to hit better?
