... It looks to me like that 120-300 Sigma has even a better bokeh on a full-frame!

it def does have a littlebetter bokeh. And 5D noise is very helpful. Even at ISO 800 the noise is barely disturbing the image quality and with minimal noise reduction one can get great images.

Another thing i noticed is that the cropped images from 5D comes as big as 3-6MB if properly framed.

A similar crop from the 1D mark II yeilds around 2MB of image. Even while basic DPP conversionw ithout any crop some images are shrunk to as small as 5MB.

I tried some shots with a mark II at 600mm yesterday. This one is from the mark II( i havent got used to different settings in mark II yet. It wil take a long while before i get the right set up. SHot it raw real flat and processed in adobe raw)

Mark II at 600mm with 2x converter or 780mm
