This is a tremendous photo!

However, I am surprised to see such strong vignetting, particularly noticeable in the sky - right behind the bird it is a light sky, but in the corners and across the top the sky gets darkened out.

I haven't experienced vignetting like that at all with my 100-400mm, even when I use it with a full frame body. . Why this vignetting happened to you with this lens is a mystery to me.

.

Thanks. I am not home so can’t check but it is probable that the vignette was added in LR. I routinely do it although sometimes too much. It is habitual......

Yeah I actually quit using the vignette removal feature in LR as it really needs to be backed off to 75% in most cases depending on F stop used.

I suppose the solid blue sky combined with whatever contrast additions were done in post magnified any minor vignetting that actually occurred in this case.

Now what do I win?

On the 7DII + 100-400LII there is none, and It was all added by Ed.. Artistic Impression

Sometimes I will use it to give the image a centre and more depth, I'm sure some would not use any, .. I'm sure Ed did the same thing.

Sometimes its 4 o'clock in the morning and we shouldn't be processing  :p lol

I forget who it was that told me soon after getting my 7D MkII that you couldn't get good results shooting slower than something in the 1/3XX speed due to the pixel density ...... This morning I was forced to shoot in very low light and to get my ISO down I tried 1/100 and 1/80 hand held and got great results with the IS on this lens. Cropped the second image slightly to get the file size below 10MB.

The incoming storm made for a great background to this little Snowy. I like the water drop on his beak too. About 5 minutes after these pictures I was pretty well soaked. Winds great enough to make it rain sideways. And I was under a shelter. The rain coat on my Lowepro bag works great.

Theres the guys that quote the written word like it’s the bible,, and guys that just see it as a sensor and a place to hang a lens. Images don’t lie. Shoot away Joe

I can't count how many times I've heard....'you can't do this......you shouldn't do that....your camera isn't capable of........'

Interestingly enough.......pretty much every time I've heard that kind of stuff it turns out to be the proverbial pant load of crap.

If somebody is preaching to you that you can't or shouldn't do this or that, chances are pretty high that they don't have a clue.

They've been readin' too much and not shootin' enough.
