Thanks Harry.
You are right, the dirty spots are identified and dealt with. Sharpness and contrast are increased a bit and the photo is in the que now.

If yes, how was the results? A little funny development in my considerations is, that I have been offered a 4 years old N...

Thank you for the advice, dutch and Jehan.

It looks like the Nikon 70-200 mm is a good choice.
I have read a few reviews that found the lens to be sharp in the middle but somewhat unsharp towards the edges. Anything you have noted?

Rejections happens, no problems, I was just getting a little confused about the cause for the rejections.

The blue cast should be fixable together with a less saturation.
Will the glare on the tail be a no-go?

On my own monitor I can not se the banding, but I have several shots of the SAS 330 so I will have a look.

Re: New camera decision - would like some feedback on what others have.

Agree with Jehan regarding the Nikon setup, the 200-500 is a very good one for the price. I use it for aviation and wildlife. For me its a D500 instead of the D850, so I can not comment on the D850. Regarding the mirrorless road: I do own a Z7 and you can buy it with a good discount from me. When us...

The position in frame will be adjusted, no problem.

The white airframe causes me some problems, as the difference between correct exposure and over-exposure seem to be pretty narrow.
