I've been using a Meike grip on my 6D since it came out.  No issues.

I really want this lens. 8)

I like to own the software I purchase.  I think I'll pass on CC.  If lightroom ever goes CC, I'll just use something else.

I just looked at the comparisons between the Sigma and Canon 1.4 on The Digital Picture's site.  From what I can see, the Sigma destroys just about all of them in IQ.  50 is probably my favorite focal length.  I believe I can see this lens in my future.

Whatever it is, I'm sure it will be out of my price range  :P   Maybe Sigma has given Canon a swift kick to start innovating.  Can't wait to see it though.

I'd update to the 70-200 2.8. Maybe I would invest in a decent portable lighting system.

I just got the 135 used, but haven't had a chance to get out much with it.  The few photos I got are pretty nice, but I had to do a bit of focus adjustment in the menu.  I love the 50mm focal length, but I have the 50 1.4.  It's kinda meh wider than 2.8.  I will probably get the Sigma if it lives up to the hype.  I think you would probably get more use out of the 50.  It's perfect on the 6D.  From what I've seen so far, the 135 has a special quality that I love, I just won't get as much use out of that focal length.

We also have a Quidditch team at SIU.

The 6D is a great low light camera, but at low light, it becomes a 1 point auto focus camera.  The outer points are basically useless for low light or contrast areas.  I figured it would be this way when I looked over the specs and have adapted to the cameras limitations.  I agree that the 5d3 would better suit you.  I'd love to own one, but I guess I really don't need the AF for what I'm shooting (would love to have it though :P)

Finally got my hands on a used 135.  Got a pretty good deal.  It's been too miserable outside to do much with it.  Can't wait until Spring.

The Canon 24-105 is a fine lens.  If it ever breaks on me, I could see getting the Sigma, although, I might think about getting a 24-70 f/4 or 2.8 instead (2.8 zooms are a bit pricey for me right now).  I've started shooting more with primes, so I really only use the 24-105 for when I'm being lazy.  Kudos to Sigma.  Looking forward to the coming war of the 50 1.4s

I convert RAW to DNG and archive the DNGs. I hope I'm doing it right. I can't see spending all that money on equipment and not saving uncompressed files.
