|putinhuilo||guys, for those who are in state of NY, have you tried shipping to Kinek.com in PA and picking it up there, you save lots of money on taxes.|

Ok settled, I am not letting it go.
Yes the bokeh is awesome.
My order will be delivered Friday.

The 85mm 1.8 is it's own beast. The 24-105mm is a very sharp versatile walkaround lens. It's versatile because of the range and f4 + Image Stabilizer let you take decent pics in lowish light. It's nothing compared to 1.8 though, and the bokeh you'll get with it.

I'm not clear about something - the pancake STM has a much smaller lens surface area than most lenses. I know that it's the aperture that decides on the amount of light entering the camera, but doesn't the surface area of the lens also affect the ability to gather the most light possible? In other words, to me it seems that the pancake will collect much less light at 2.8 than let's say the 50mm at 2.8. The STM lens is an amazing value at $99 from Adorama in this package deal since it compares well to very expensive L lenses in sharpness. Too bad it doesn't go to at least f/2 for a better subject isolation.
I remember reading something about the 6D not being able to correctly autofocus below f/4. Does anyone know something about this? I couldn't track it down again, unless I misunderstood. I know that most cameras can't focus above f/8.

So how do you feel about the AF between 5D2 vs 6D?

The 40mm on the other hand I found to be unbelievable for the price. $149 right now with the rebate, and it has stellar performance.
You can chase expensive cameras and lenses all day long, but a talented photographer can produce soul-stirring images with an iPhone.

I've shot the 85mm f1.8 on a 5D2 and got spectacular results.

DXOMark works well for sensor benchmarking/comparisons but their lens testing isn't as good. Their lens score depends entirely on the body that its attached to.
Attach the 5D Mark III/1DS/D800e and the score jumps to the top. Attach a very good lens to a smaller interchangeable system and the score drops. It's more megapixel and sensor dependent than it is on the actual lens.

You have no clue what you are talking about. I own both and have a 5d2 and 6d. Both these lens shine.
Perhaps you should move beyond your iphone camera one day and actually do real photography.
