Yes and yes. What do the near details look like? All I see is a hazy atmosphere in your 100% crops, which is not the camera's fault.

i just thought the 5d was sharper then that thats why i didnt know if it was a problem with lens or body, my 60d is almost comparable but if it looks normal then i guess its fine, thank you for the input.

as an aside, the first picture was taken at 1/1250 and the second picture was taken at 1/1600. The exposure is slightly different between the two.

Looks sharp considering the atmosphere and camera settings.

When I first looked I thought the wrong crops had been posted.

Same answers as above.

Are both shots JPG files straight from the camera then?

Increasing contrast normally reduces haze, but it is hardly noticable that far in the background on the original file. One thing is certain. It's not the camera, lens or shooter. There was actual haze when the pic was shot so the file shows what was shot.

You know the lens is wide open? Landscape background? Looks fine to me other than the contrast difference from shutter speeds.

The in-camera setting is more for JPG files straight from the camera. If you shoot RAW, you can do the adjustment without converting to JPG (or TIF) until you are ready to print or post the image on the web. That's why I don't use Photoshop for that purpose, except for doing certain tasks (mostly for batching, applying my pre-set actions), the majority of my processing is done using Lightroom, which is geared more for photographers.

Try shooting again at various apertures: f/4, f/5.6, and f/8 and see if that improves the image quality. I'm sure the smaller apertures will improve the sharpness and contrast.

It doesn't look too bad for wide open. There is often variation in exposure, sharpness, and focus, as well as IS influence (good and bad). So for important subjects, it is always best to take several shots and choose the best overall.

Water vapor in the air causes a blueish haze, thereby reducing clarity. It has ruined many a landscape photo for me. Notice how much more clarity the foreground has? That's because you're shooting through less atmosphere. The only way to reduce haze is to use a polarizer and selectively increase contrast in the distance parts of the image. I mask and warm those areas as well.
