Yes, you can use a digital camera to meter your scene for Film. Just be sure to use equivalent F-stops from MF to 35mm to get the DOF you need. It works quite well.

TDP just put their ISO 12233 images up. Looks like the Tamron (at least their copy) is inferior to the Canon Mark II where it counts at 200mm & f/2.8:
Bummer, I was hoping to get 200mm at 2.8 with IS/VC at a bargain. If I needed 200mm at f/2.8 for mission-critical stuff and had the moneyI'd probably have to go for the Canon despite its insanely high price. I think I'll just get the superb Canon 70-200/4L IS used on eBay for $700 or so...
The 50mm 1.4 is a cheap crappy lens. Invest in the 35mm 1.4 L instead.
I see you also skipped the 85L II, Is that because the 135L is so good?
I owned the 85 but a little too slow for my tastes and I do think the 135 is devine... Stealthy perfect for the street work that I do.
Surprisingly enough, not everyone has the same requirements as you; so your blanket statements declaring the absolute inferiority of the 6D are utterly worthless, and make you look silly.
I also duly note that a mod has a very low pain threshold for posts favoring Nikon :-) ...
... but when your blood pressure went through the roof you overlooked that the post was intended a bit on the striking side, a click on my profile reveals I even did a large compilation of things the 6d is good at: http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=11309.0
Still, and short since this is rather ot: As an "entry level ff" the d600 has the clear edge, and I dare to say that except for low light af the other things in favor of the 6d are unlikely to matter to the targeted customer group if they aren't bound to a brand by prior investments. Peace.
Not so much a low threshold for Nikon favoring, than speaking in absolutes. I think after all the posts (not from you, but in general) about how the 5D3 was the worst camera ever... and then once users have them in their hands 99% love them. And now the same thing happening with the 6D, gloom and doom, total Canopocalypse... but actual users seem to like them. You just happened to be in the blast radius when I was particularly annoyed, so sorry about that. And just ignore the fact I'm a mod, I'm just a spam/profanity/personal attack janitor, my opinions are purely my own.
Your compilation of things that are good about the 6D is quite excellent. It's well thought out, objective... a very valuable post. I would not hesitate to direct someone trying to decide on 7D/5D2/5D3 in the direction of that post.
"Clear Edge": once again absolutes (grrrr, lol)... If low light AF is important, high ISO, EF compatibility, or even if WiFi or GPS are important... Then that clear edge may be quite a bit blurier for someone else than it is for you.
My 2499$ 5D3 package just came in. It has everything as promised and is in perfect condition. (Of course no 24-105L)
Great deal but took nearly 3 weeks to arrive.
Just curious, did yours come with a warranty card?
