EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 6D Under-Exposing?

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.

Pentax FF DSLR for under 1499$ at release.

Those Korean links really pushed the OoF rendition to the limits, naked branches + leaves make the busiest backgrounds, IMO. I don't think I saw nice bokeh examples from any of the 35/1.4 lenses on that site, be it canon, samjunk, contax, nikkor or sigma.

however, here's an example where background is not that much demanding:

I think I'm really liking this lens.

There are some signs of onion brokeh which isnt too pleasent.

However im not very knowledgeable about how often situations that create onion brokeh occur. All the other samples seem to have a very nice brokeh. Can anyone enlighten me as to whether this should be something to be concerned about?

Yet that same user complaining about OoF rendering quality of Sigma is selling his 35L:

I want one, yeah, unfortunately they've already designed one with my favorite focal length - it's called RX1 and sets you $3k back.

Converted from Croation currency it's roughly 950-1000euros, so in US it'd probably go for around 900$.

Lenses / Re: Portrait: 85mm 1.8 or 100mm 2.0

I had the 85/1.8 and sold it after moving to FF, didn't like the working distance. recently I shot few commercial environmental portraits with 100/2 and I gotta admit 85 is better performer.. OoF is on par, perhaps even 100/2 has a slight edge (matter of personal taste actually) but it lacks that sweet crispiness 85 used to deliver for me.

Could be the beam grid - on my 5Dc focus locks instantly with 550ex but is sluggish and takes few seconds with 430ex.
