I have good and bad news :-/
1) I forgot the SD card was recently reformatted and was empty!! Thus 
nothing showed up in the Import window  ...
2) I took several pics, plugged in the 7D. The pics show up in the 
Import window. This means that Digikam does find the 7D automagically 
and opens the DCIM folder. Downloading, however, throws an error: "Album 
name cannot contain "/"."

I've no idea how to solve that - as I've set a standard Album name in 
Settings > Config Digikam > Cameras > Behaviour

3) I then added the camera manually, but the outcome is the same.
