yes, but the EXIF data is not there. (shutter speed, aperture)
why don't you try focusing on something closer, perhaps an inanimate object for your tests

Is this 100% crop? 100-400L should produce this quality when viewed at 100%/full size. Wide open.

Let's not make a blanket statement like that. There are many variations of the 100-400L out there. I have seen both soft versions and very sharp versions. I am not sure if year of manufacture could be used as some sort of guideline either. Is there a 100-400L that could produce this quality? Yes most likely... Should someone expect that all of them do this? No...

Ok, anyway i think you can get best results having proper shooting technique -> short enough shutter speed.
And more important, AF fine tune procedure. There might be some "soft copies" around, but some of them just require AF fine tuning.

btw, that photo is not bad :)

looks like youre getting the hange of it (original poster).
keep your shutter speed up above 1/640th when youre getting used to it.
bump your ISO to compensate.
i shoot birds at f 7.1 as I like most/all of the bird in focus.

the 60d has great auto white balance and great auto ISO.
use them.
try this.
put the knob in manual mode
set shutter speed to 1/800th
set aperture to f7.1
set ISO to auto

go shoot using center focus point only.
see how it works out.

In my 60D, in manual mode, I can go till aperture 6.7 and then the next number is 8.0. How do you get 7.1 ?

Have you got the camera set to 1/2 stop increments ?
