Great lens, Avi and a great image too.   Sharp as usual and caught him in a perfect position.  Excellent.

A great, sharp action shot.  Nice soft background, too.

Avi - another great birder action shot. I notice you are using the 7D with the 100-400L. I own that same combo and have found it to be somewhat disappointing overall - the lens can be fairly soft and the camera pretty noisy. Your shot here looks better than what I normally get - what is your post processing regimen to achieve this? Sounds like maybe you use some noise reduction method?

You commented on my eagle shot about artifacts and noise - and that is a 7D trait, I have found. I was going to jettison the 7D because of that, except that its focusing system is so fabulous. I can't imagine (with my eyesight) getting reliable action shots or wildlife portraits with any other current Canon model.

I notice that you are making quite a name for yourself with the bird shots, and I am interested to learn from your experience. So I would love your feedback on these observations!

Patrick disappointing is not the word.

I was for many years  27 to be exact a Nikon user and moved to Canon because of the D100 being soft.

So now I am with Canon .

I sold my 50D and bought the 7D and thought as you did that this is the best combo with the 100-400.  Sad

I would love to get my 50D back.

Apparently the problem is known to CANON but they dont admit that they screwed up????

Luckely all my work in photography I use the 5D mk 2.The 7D gives me headaches every day and I only use it

for Avian photography.

I have alligned the camera / lens and try not to crop as then you see the noise.

The softness of the lens is probably a lack of allignment

I dont use any noise reduction processing other than that on PS.

I use the noise reduction first  ( very slight ) and then do exp. and contr. and at the end a little sharpening 

If you can find a 50D try it you will love it.

No problem with any questions you have

All the best
