Stay away from the 50/1.8. It has very inconsistent AF.

I keep it simple. Spend enough time to choose the best parameters, and then save as JPEG. I use default sharpening unless I print big.
LR gives you much more freedom in the conversion than DPP. I wish it were not catalog oriented. For people like me, who use it as a converter only, "importing" is a unnecessary annoying step.
It is also much faster. Before LR I converted using DPP and then edited in PS. Add all the resizing and sharpening actions. A real nightmare. LR must have cut my PP time at least in half.
I typically choose Standard for output sharpening. In your opinion which is the better media selection when the client does not know what type paper they will print on Matte or Glossy? I usually go Matte as my guess is most don't go full gloss.
I love this lens, but it seems to me that it is optimized for closer range. I don't find that it resolves like my 135L wide open in the 25-50 foot range. The 100L is deadly up close, and makes a nice multipurpose prime stopped down a bit at distance, but I do find that I am somewhat underwhelmed at the detail wide open in the medium distance range.
And yes, I have done the AFMA on my copy.
Anyone else have a similar experience?
[The busy background in this fairground image is in the distance.It does not matter (much) where it is. It matters how much it is blurred. In this case, the "transition zone" goes more or less to infinity. In the shot with the beer bottles, the background is pleasantly blurred and it is just 3-4m away, if I remember well.
but my real reason here is to sayI could not agree more. I am afraid that they may go the other way - to "beat" the Sigma and to sacrify the bokeh for more resolution.
this in an opportunity for Canon 35L II to really work the bokeh...I mean assuming they get sharp at f1.4 like Sigma does now
make Bokeh the difference.....
c'mon Canon ...you are up ... design a new top-dawg...
that shot of the cowboy looks much like the stuff i've seen from the canon 50L.
