Hello, I have a 7D MK2 and I am having a little problem. I shoot a lot of Bald Eagles and I am getting a halo around the wing tips the most of the time. I have included a photo to show what I am seeing. I would appreciate your help. Thank you

Joe,
You have one primary and one secondary contributor to what you are observing as your so-call halo around the wing between dark and Bright edges.
You are actually seeing a stripe of chromatic aberration. CA can take on the color of green through violet on the color spectrum. In this case you have more of a cyan CA going on against a near cyan sky color. Then just beyond the CA stripe I think you see a very thin line squiggly which might be Jpeg compression of the CA too.

Congrats, when i first upgraded from my Canon Xsi i wasnt thrilled with the 7d but keep shooting. It was so much more advanced i was messing stuff up. My images are sharp now and i love it.

Jeff I saw that you were having issues a while back. Was that after a firm ware upgrade or something. Did they get everything resolved for you. Hope I'm not opening old wounds. All of the few customer reviews on the refurbished units were good and I thought it would be a good chance of getting one that had been well tested.
Thanks for the encouragement! I've always envied your images.

I noticed that your equipment list has the 70-300mmL from back when but see a lot of your posts are taken with the 100-400mmL II. Just haven't gotten around to editing your equipment list? The 100-400 LII is next on my wish list. Canon needs to sell them together as a kit with camo paint jobs.

Ya I did have some problems, but it was a broken back wheel.. Canon then broke the rest of the camera, I still have the thousands of images I took with that camera after there calibrations were made to the camera and when ever I see them I immediately see so many problems in the images. But hey i'm not bitter about it and maybe I did get a bit angry. But I'm more than over it. After all its just a camera...They make um every day lol. I don't know why I never updated my gear info. I still use both the 100-400LII and the 70-300L as needed. they are both as sharp as one another but the 70-300L seems to collect more light in super dark conditions. I think the best thing you can do is just try and get the best images out of the camera that you can so you can evaluate what you got.

My second body 7D2 is a refurbished one and I've had zero problems with it. All the lenses I bought in 2016, Canon 100-400 II, 70-200 F/2.8 II, and a 24-70 F/2.8 II were refurbished ones and I've had zero problems with them.

I don't hesitate anymore to buy refurbished gear from the Canon online store. Two of the lenses I bought around Father's Day when they had the refurbished prices discounted even more. They will do discounts every once in awhile. Trick is to order one when it labeled as in stock. I had to keep checking every day before the 100-400 was finally in stock.

I love the 100-400 II and can't wait to shoot daytime baseball and softball games with it starting in March.

I met a nature photographer who was selling prints of birds. I asked him if he had any turkey vulture pictures and he looked at me like I was an escaped ax murderer. "I don't photograph those things!" I was irritated and sad at the same time. I love turkey vultures and I'm so glad somebody else appreciates their worth in nature.

I will gladly take the opportunity to photograph any creature or critter that will put up with it. :lol: When these guys are hanging around, they never seem to mind having their picture taken.

Nice deal!

You'll love it. I went from the 30D, 7D to the 7DII and each time was a good upgrade. I've been genuinely surprised what a jump the Mark II was from the Mark I

Joe,
Not sure I follow your question.
Lightroom has a tool formCA removal, you can click on the color of the CA and LR will do an ok job removing it. I believe you cpmight be able to set it to do it automatically too.
But if is fixed in LR, it would show as fixed upon export.
