Question about Canon EOS-10D Digital Camera
I've been shooting with my 10d for the past year. Most of my images were soft and focusing has been a frustration for me. However, yesterday, my camera in AF mode wouldn't fix itself on any of my selected focal points. I thought it might be the lens, so I changed the lens and had the same problem. My battery was fully charged. Then I thought perhaps it's the focal point...so I manually changed the focal point and had the same problem with all of them. I wasn't too close to my subject, etc. I literally shoot like 700 images a week... could my camera be tired? Is this a common problem that can be fixed? Any advice? I am using this for my photog business and am not terrifically happy with the 10d.

I had the exact same problem with my 10D from the start. Soft images, slow and difficult to focus. I kept putting up with it, thinking it was a problem with me. It never did fail completely, but finally I had enough & sent it back to Canon. They found the focus screen was defective and replaced it, (and a few other things) plus they cleaned the camera and serviced it. So, I think your best bet is to take it to your local camera store. Let them check to make sure it's not something simple and then send it to Canon. I am very happy with the results, wish I'd have done it sooner.

At 700 images/week for 52 weeks, you're just about at the point where the shutter could fail pretty soon. I don't think that would affect AF though, and AF doesn't "wear out" with use (other than experiencing the random failures that all electronics do).
