ps - please do try printing sometimes, you might be surprised.

The whole point of taking photos is to view the prints.
And enjoy their artistic, technical, documentary or sentimental values.

At least it used to be like, in case things changed some please pass me the map.

Print it in whichever size you like and tell me again that you spotted any grain in those shots.

Even the mods got so excited that they forgot this should go in 3rd party section, heh.

Another SQ-A user here, used to shoot with Pentacon Six TL (50/4, 80/2.8, 120/2.8, 180/2.8 Zeiss and 300/4 Meyer-Gorlitz) and M645 1000s (with 80/1.9 and 45/2.8 ), decided to stick with 2xSQ-A bodies and 50/3.5 S&PS, 2x80/2.8 S&PS, 105/3.5 S, 150/3.5 S and 150/4 PS.. why double the lens set-up? Because, in case one set-up gets stolen/broken for some reason, I need to have complete reliable back-up at once.

Can't beat the 6x6, just ask instagrammers.

Sony recently released pattern for sensor with photosites aligned in honeycomb grid.
So, besides Foveon and Xtrans there's always more to come.

I moved from Canon 8800F to Plustek 7400 for 35mm, have to admit I'm quite impressed by the difference. I still use CS8800F for 120s, though.

Here's some insight of it's capabilities:

that boils down to 'claim vs. experience' type of argument.

I use 5dc all the time for metering, when I shoot slide film I keep the EVs about the same and when I shoot C41 I usually add 0.5-1EV compared to 5dc shot. I mostly shoot with Bronica SQA cameras but also with M645 and RB67 gear.

If you take a look at the updated link in the OP you'd see it was the D600 which overexposed in studio shots compared to D800, 5Dmk2, 5Dmk3 and 6D.

...and to be honest I have no idea why someone mentioned the underexposing problem only with 6d while it is and was present in 5d2 and 5d3 as well. Maybe 6d underexposes even much more.

Funny you say that because in this side by side comparison a completely different conclusion is found:

Sigmas coating  gives a little more yellow results than Nikon,Canon etc

Some of my nikkors give more yellowish color casts than my other nikkors. Some of my EF lenses have different coatings. Nothing PP never could fixed.
