So this is probably just operator error - but I swear the white balance on my 7D is weird. Has anyone else noticed this?

I've had mine for almost 2 years and it's never been a problem.

Do you have it set for the correct light? I have some cfl bulbs, one gives off a yellow light like an old style incandescent bulb and one gives off a bluer light more in line with a new style white florescent.

Then if you are shooting under florescents you'll find some older ones give a sickly green color to the image (we used to use a rose colored filter to counteract the green)

So, the problem may not be the camera but may be the lights you are shooting under.
