Awesome work, sir. I enjoyed every minute of it =)

That has to be the dumbest "proof" ever.
You are totally mixing up the ability to blur white and black bands, thereby creating grey, with lack of contrast, this is a spurious argument. That the Canon lens blurs the black and white bars faster than the others proves it has smoother out of focus blur. The fact that the dog picture didn't contain any black pixels whatsoever even though it has a black nose is a processing issue not proof that the lens has no contrast.
To prove your idea you'd have to show that a correctly exposed full spectrum image with areas in the background that are, 1, black, 2, out of focus, 3, large enough to not be affected by the range of tones around them.
YourBridget's dog image would have been a good example, had it not been for the fact that the black levels were raised to the level that they were no longer black, or even close to it. It isn't difficult to prove there is no black after you take it all out.
A few years ago I worked making content and creating characters for video games. I'm responsible for implementing the first bokeh effects into a best selling video game. I'm personally responsible for creating some of the most iconic CG images of the last decade, and in doing so I consulted a few people on bokeh which consisted of dozens of optics experts that researched for universities. I'm certainly glad you set the record straight. For years, I've been foolish enough to believe that Ivy League professors were legitimate and knew what they were talking about.
There is no such thing as "blurring faster" when comparing identical apertures and focal lengths. The diameter of the circle of confusion is identical, and your statement is mathematically impossible. The Canon adds glow to objects that are out of focus. This is a very simple concept to understand and is not debatable.
You can decide if you like this glow or if you do not like this glow personally. However I can tell you that it is an unusual feature. Basically all of the common pro Canon, Nikon or third party lenses do not exhibit this behavior.
Hope that helps.
Never look at the Tamron. I just went straight with Canon. As I never buy any third party lenses. For the price its well worth it. Buy it right the first time and it will save you money in the long run.
I think everyone here on CR will agree that surapon is one of our favorite members. He has some of the most interesting posts! You never fail to amaze, amuse and impress me surapon!! You 'da man!
yes, you should buy that lens.
Yeah, sure. We've all heard that before!
I also shoot weddings and events with a two body set up. I came from a single 5d2 to owning a 5d3 along with the 5d2. when my 5d2 was taken from my car I quickly purchased a 6d to replace the stolen 5d2. BAD CHOICE for me! although I love that the IQ and ISO of the 6d had me not for want for great pics, the button orientation was the drawback for me. I was just too used to the 5d button lay out. My second camera ever was a 50d so with my nose to it's back for a few years the 5d systems layout became natural. hence, the toggle button along with the quick select dial allowed me more control in situations where i need to keep my eye in the viewfinder.
1-The dial of the 5d3 is more responsive to me. ( I think the 6d's dial is too plastic-ky and cheap and doesn't select my choices responsively.)
2- The 5d3 is WAY BETTER made! ( the little aluminum mode indicator disc fell off the 6d after about 3 weeks, and the rubber gripping started to peel after a month).
3-The ability to select AF points with an assuring toggle while looking thru the VF. ( I've missed a few shots using the 6d selector dial to change AF points).
4.-Which is a biggie, two card slots. I shoot J-peg and RAW. I use an Eye-Fi card to instant upload for display if the client adds that service to their package. ( I tried the Wi-Fi feature of the 6d during events and found that it's way to tedious to apply at events.)
In the end I sold the 6d and bought a second 5d3.
I think you should WORK THE BEST YOU CAN with what you can afford now, and try to get the gear that allows you to do the MOST for the type of work you will constantly do in the future.
surapon love it :-) but i am 32 and carrying 2 body's 1dx and 5d3 with 70-200 and 24-70 2.8 at a wedding all day i have sore legs and back you must be one fit man loaded up like that lol
