Lens is a behemoth, like carrying a literal "canon", but can't beat the capabilities. I'm using a Canon Rebel SL1, but never match the sharpness of your photos. The Canon 5D MKIV is my dream body as well, but only a few used ones have sold under $1K on Ebay- have to be ready to jump on deals. New ones still going for just under $2K. Maybe they'll go down when a newer model is released? Gotta have the 4K video feature on the MKIV!
Forgot to include pic of the 4th Vulture in the group. This one looks halfway between the juvenile's and senior's age.
He's also pretty beat up, been around the block, maybe the troubled young son of the family?
James Dean of he Vulture Family?
The 5D mkiv is still $2,799 brand new
and I just saw that Canon has released the Canon 90D already...don't know much about it but I read rave reviews about the 80D, and the 5D's brother, the Canon 6D mkii (also full frame) but I figure if I'm going to go full frame, may as well live big and get all the way into the dog house
Your photos look just fine to me! Not sure if you're shooting on auto, manual, Av, or Tv, I always shoot manual; not that I don't trust the camera but I'm still learning and I always try to estimate what the settings should be for my shots. Still get it wrong a lot of the time and have to make adjustments which is fine for a stationary subject but sucks if I screw up a shot of wildlife and said wildlife decides to scamper off before I can get the best settings.
I do minor editing on my pics with Lightroom (like cropping, shadows, highlights, sharpness etc.) and Photoshop, but it's minor because honestly, I don't know a lot about either program, especially Photoshop.
If you have Lightroom and/or Photoshop, or are thinking about ever getting them, I found an excellent
series of free youtube tutorials by Anthony Morganti (hold on while I look up the link)...
