yes sRGB I never use the other...
but BOTH pics are on the screen ...the screen capture looks JUST LIKE the LR5 edit..
and the reddish jpg output shows alongside the 'good' LR edit one

so it would seem to me the monitor is out of the equation.. JUST the process from LR to jpg

I view in Faststone...and both pics show this diff you see on your screen...
Faststone has color correction setting CMS system .......on/off it is the same...

thanks for thoughts

I have dell 3011 monitor ...fairly accurate...but uncalibrated to print etc
with canon 5d3 shots in RAW edited in LR 4/5(beta) ...

LR
process:  2012
profile :  standard
always have used the sRGB popular setting ...not the widder Adobe RGB
for some reason LATELY my jpg result is warmer ....more reds than the edit screen...

edit screen looks pretty close to what I see
I never print - I just want fairly close colors... to what I SAW when I shot,
what I see in edit screen....... and not some new 'reddish' output... on jpg

and for sure what I see needs to be what I get

I dont need absolute color accuracy ...for printing for example...
something is 'shifted' lately.....??

I noticed this in the last few weeks..
so I might have some setting in LR that I dont understand..

but I have not found any reason YET

if you have a clue for me
I would be grateful

I dont need perfect color accuracy..
i just post occasional pics to web...

but LATELY they got redder/warmer..
can you help


RAW EDIT before (LR 5 screen capture)
and then after jpg output ..as examples
flesh tones show the effect best - IMO

thanks again for your comments...

I would guess
 a small, effective, (relatively) inexpensive stabilizer system...

that would be very useful...

also I am pretty sure the Sigma has lower chromatics than the 35L and the bokeh is about the same ....
that depends on the background distance ... and that may differ with different distances for each lens...
hard to test that I think

anyway
I like my Sigma wide open for these sort of shots
these were 1/50 sec so maybe some motion blur from the subject..
50L and 35L do not have this low chromatics.. in my experience...

and I ALSO believe Canon had to pull their almost released 35L II because Sigma was so good...
I will get the Canon 35L II if it is better...

I never liked the 50 f1.2 the two times I tried it....
I tried to accept the vignetting, soft edges and chromatics... never got to the focus quirks...
but I personally don't care for 50mm over 35mm.... so it was uphill from the start

my 35L was pretty good @ f1.4.....and real good @ f2...
my sigma is as good as 35L @ f2....... but  @ f1.4..  and very little fringing/CA...
plus...perfect for a crop camera

However, I am SURE the 35L focused a just little bit faster and maybe more accurately...
I didn't try those two 35s together ....  and hardly ever for action shots

I did try the Sigma in a foot race yesterday...and DID notice I (I do mean ME) missed the focus a few times... so is it me, or my 5D3 settings or the Sigma...I dont know... I don't face those 'sports' situations that much ...so I am not qualified to judge.......this was a perfect situation for the 24-70mm f2.8 II  -  IMO
I'm almost certain mis-focuses were a combo of my technique(setting) AND the how the Sigma-5D3 work together

But the Sigma is - for sure - sharper than the 35L....maybe a stop ahead
I say get the Sigma 35 f1.4
I have been using it in low light situations mostly.....wonderful

you can almost get the sigma AND the 50mm NON-L for the 35L price....as already mentioned
I know I will get the 35L II when it arrives - if sharper and cleaner than the Sigma.....someday


a few race shots @ f2 from the Sigma (servo mode)

« on: March 04, 2013, 10:54:19 AM »
14L II as first choice
maybe the 16-35 II for added flex...
if I bring a second lens it will be 85L II....... as sun rises...

if summer/spring the second will be 100 macro
....possibly the macro is the only one ...if I specifically go out  to the gardens for bugs and flowers

if going to crowd-events the 14L II still first
then 135L or maybe the 70-200 f4/f2.8 II...where reach is needed
the Sigma 35 may go as third, if an opportunity seems to be there
(the first 2weeks I had the sigma it went alone...to force it on the world...as a test)

a low light kit for me would be 14L II, Sig35, 135L (and Tam 1.4x TC)

///////////

so I FIRST choose  the 14L II (with 16-35 zoom as a substitute)

this lens and the 14L are ALMOST all I need (and a camera body) ... maybe the Sigma 35

I was thrilled when they added I.S. 
same sharpness as the old one..... but now a bit more flex ...

don't use a tripod at all...not even with the old one

thanks for asking about Biff..... he was my closest wild animal friend
it has been a few weeks now....   I believe he is gone
------------
I had a lab retriever MIKE when I was a kid... he peed on the colonel's flowers across the street....living on-base.  So...we were told to get rid of him. My dad gave him to a rice farmer ...in the valley. I am sure Mike ran and swam his life away..
but
I never got over that event......over MIKE.  Never had another dog.
------------
Biff is right there behind Mike...in bonding...  I never saw a Jay other than Biff that would stand a foot or so from me...on the windowsill.. and just look at me...mumble little hellos...and listen to me play guitar..
he liked the maj7th chords..

it was a close friendship... of course he ate like a king
--------
same building.. yrs back....up on the top floor ..with a view...
we had an air cond unit that stuck out the window...
and had a plastic 'window' above it to finish sealing the weather out.
I would take out that plastic.. and the air con was then an open-air platform ....just below eye level...

I got a passing seagul to land there once... coaxing him with a bit of salmon..
then he came every day... of course...so I left the plastic out most of the time..
and  so 'Johnny' came by...landed on the air con platform ... and basically walked inside and cried out ..
each morning... he woke me up... like a rooster
his wife sat up on the roof facade... 10 feet up and they took turns...but he controlled it all
if I left the plastic in...he would tap tap tap on the window... and I would remove it...

Johnny took food from my hand...usually dog food pellets...sometimes fish ..
and like Biff..later..I would talk quietly to him..face to face... a foot away..
...usually about how handsome he was...but sometimes politics..

when we moved downstairs he circled for months .. and followed me to the market sometimes....I really missed him too.... but then Biff showed up down on the patio.
and the hummers too...

Biff's remaining wife and I believe his offspring ..hang out...but Biff was unique...

thanks for asking about Biff .....

Thanks for enjoying the shot

yes that PREVIOUS shot... is my Sigma 35 f1.4 @ f2....cropped from the center
not really the right lens...just testing it...

birds ...mostly at my window
http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/3368222485/photos/2436708/5d3_2330?inalbum=birds-around-me

Frankie's feeder is 2" from the window edge....
I shoot them with the macro ....usually
here are two of Betty (his wife) ... then their baby Frankie Junior

then one of Frankie in the right light

sometimes with 70-200  with a tube...
but macro gets me the closest

thanks Canon..... for the silent mode on 5D3

yes ...expensive...I'll sell the sigma... and come up with another $1500...gasp!
hence my ...partly) tongue-in-cheek   'sell the farm'  comment


let me say
they took a pretty good 70-200 f4 ... and added I.S. and sharpened it up and it is arguably the sharpest zoom around....  amazing act...topping themselves..

they can do it....
it was not that much more expensive than the old non I.S. version...
/////////////

put the team on it....lock the door... be a hero...
this is an invitation...frankly....

stop leaving work early on thursday guys....

..........

doncha love competition!

P.S. the Sigma is quite sharp and bokeh is as good as any 35..... well...yes... this is subjective...
but it works for me  @ f1.4

SO.....

NOW Canon can step up....

I bet they pulled their 35L mk II at the last minute.. because the Sigma was so good...
(I bought the Sigma ...it is very good)

BUT
I would like to see Canon put out a response toe the Sigma success... and it is ...success

let's have some ...best lens Canon ever made.....sort of lens with the New 35L II....

lets have some world shaking Bokeh quality.....
and maintain sharpness....

I want it already,....
selling my tractor and ... barn...
Kids can go to ...local community college ...
