Re: Is this image acceptable?

It is oversharpened, too dark and the contrast is too high.

Re: Is Image Stabilization on a lens necessary to plane spot?

Under good conditions you don't need an IS. I would recommend the 70-200 2.8 which is a much better lens in my opinion.

RE: Canon 7D + Canon 100-400L Is II

Hi Andrew, I can't open your pictures and so I can't say anything about the quality. I have the 100-400 M2 and I use it with the 5D3 and the 72. The lens offers a great result and I like this lens very much. I would advise you to send your camera and your lens to Canon for adjusting. Klaus

RE: Choosing Lens For Canon EOS Rebel - Beginner

I would suggest to go for a bigger camera model like the 60D. I saw it at B&H for only $649. The reason for this recommendation is that you will probably buy a bigger lens in the future (like 100-400) and you cannot handle those small camera bodies really well with those heavy lenses. I won't bu...

if you use the "Equalize-Function" in Photoshop you can check if the picture is grainy. I have not checked your picture but it looks dark due to the bad weather.
