Sold most of my m43 gear and selling the rest shortly. E-M10+PL25 and O45, my most used lenses over the last few years don't even begin to approach the type of images I am getting with 6d+35mmf2 and 85mm f1.8.Appreciate you sharing your examples. Would still like to see what it is that you feel is different from the 25 1.4 / 45 1.8?
Quantifable or good descriptive terms, would be great.
People do say sony sensor has a certain look vs other sensors. So may be there is something just different in how the sensor renders images, and provides the look you prefer.
In the end, shoot with whatever makes you happy, I just hope it's not an endless cycle of gear churn searching for the next best thing. Maybe I gotta try this magical FF stuff for myself sometime.
Hi, as long as you keep repeating ^^^^^, I will keep saying this. It never was a sensor thing... and now you include raw files in your observations, it makes no sense at all (although your statement above about raw files and smallest screen is impossible if you mean the camera's inbuilt screen, that only ever shows JPEG output)....I don't know about other FF sensors, 6d to me is all about color response and skin tonality in both jpegs AND raw which is so much better to my eyes even when viewing on the smallest screen.
No, not even close. Skin tonality looks flat. Great for B&W which I rarely shoot. DoF control is only part of the appeal but not the main reason. 6d manages superb color response for skin tones in pretty much any light. Here is one of my best baby pics with E-M10+PL25. I now wish I could retake them with 6d:I'm interested to know if these shallow DOF photos offer some of the "look" you are after. Or do you feel there is something the 6D canon does better? Can you quantify what it is?

In no way I am trying to lessen m43. I am very attached to my Olympus gear and passionate about the system (world class IBIS, LiveView, pixel mapping, eye detect, design, portability, etc.). Different format for different looks. I never said IQ is better, I said images look better to me even on iPhone screen (the above was not my quote). This post is my personal opinion and not that of a professional photographer. The type of photography I do is family and travel photography. Well > 90% of my photographs include people in the frame. Landscape, macro or wildlife photographers may have entirely different experience . What works well for professionals may not work as well for amateurs and enthusiasts. Many forum members found this thread useful to them so there is no need in trying to stop the conversation. I may not always use the perfect wording - I am not a writer or blogger but I've been attaching images to the thread which should speak louder than the words.Art - I genuinely wish you good luck in your Canon adventures, but please stop rubbishing u43. Your opinions do not match those of respected photographers with years of experience, and your one liners such as "IQ so much better even on the rear screen" just don't make logical sense.
