EOS Bodies / Canon EOS 6D vs 5DIII images
« on: January 25, 2015, 11:29:38 AM »

I know I'm probably making a silly question, but I have had a doubt for the last weeks and did not find any answer. I'm just an amateur, I had a Canon 5dMKIII and my wife has a 6D, I had mine stolen and have been using her camera for the last months. Apart from missing the AF system in the 5D, the thing is I like the images of the 6D more than the ones of the 5DIII, I somehow find them more pleasing. I know the specs of both cameras have some little differences, but I'm not sure they explain this difference. Could that be related to the type of post-processing I usually do in lightroom? Do any of you have a similar experience?

Lenses / Portrait lens: Canon 100L 2.8 vs 85L 1.2

I have some doubts about portraits, I'm not sure if these are technical questions about lenses or about my skills as a photographer.

I recently purchased the canon 100mmL 2.8 macro lens and I am loving it, also for portraits. It is very sharp, also wide open. The thing is that even at 2.8, I often have problems having everything I want on focus, in the example I attach one eye is not perfectly focused. I have previously used the 50mm 1.4 and 100mm 2.0 and would often avoid using them wide open for that reason.

I guess the questions are: ┬┐What advantages do you find in lenses such as the canon 85mm 1.2L or even the sigma 1.4 over the canon 100 2.8 for portraits? I can understand it may be easier with those to blur the background or they may have nicer bokeh, but do you use them wide open for portraits?
