The lines are something I can't see in the original picture but was something I noticed when equalising the shot to check for dust spots. Thing is that these lines show on all pictures (well ones with a single colour / non detailled background, not noticeable on detailled shots) straight out of the camera, before any processing. A couple of examples that show the lines clearer (just equalise / resize):
The rejected shot:
Another from the same day:
The camera is a brand new Canon 7D, this was actually just the 2nd time using it. Any thoughts on what this could be, or is this a faulty sensor that needs to go back?

Put it on AV mode at go to the smallest aperture possible (f/22 or f/32, whatever your lens will let you do) and take an out of focus picture of a plain white wall. This will show up any marks on sensor/lens etc. Then post a link to the pic!

These were taken with the 100-400mm, the shot below with the 24-105mm both bought at the same time as the camera (insurance replacements), so appears not to be the lens.
Couldn't find a white wall but did manage to find something on the ground white, the equalised version:
Must have blocked the sun out the right side but still the lines are clearly visible. As said above this was a different lens to the aircraft shots. Looks like it may have to go back!

Took it back this afternoon actually and managed top show them the lines on a shot taken instore. They agreed to swap it (only 3 weeks old) but hadn't got any stock! Short drive tomorrow to a local branch and should be able to get it sorted though.

My first thought was that it was an early version that suffered from ghosting. But I can't imagine anyone of those are still in shops. And that was fixed with a firmware later on (like mine). But the position of the lines is consistent so my guess is that the screen in front of the sensor is faulty. Hope you get a replacement fast!
