Some more great shots Ronny...
Also, darbo that 55 looks absolutely awesome...
Anyway, here is an update and to be honest it's kind've an embarrassing one at that.
A few weeks ago, I tried out an 85 for a couple of days and was actually impressed with it but decided to go with the 100MP due to the 85's focus shift possiblities. I did have the 100 once before, never really cared all that much for it but figured, ok lets give it another go. To make a long story short, when I had the 85, I shot only some JPGs and made some prints. When I got the 100 the other day, I shot both JPG and RAW and yesterday I only viewed and printed from the RAW files. Well for those of you who are not familiar with the 6D, its JPG capabilities are actually outstanding, while the RAW files take a lot more PP to achieve what the JPGs give out of the camera. The result was that I was comparing RAW images from the 100MP with JPG images from the 85 and the punch that the JPGs were giving me made the RAW files look flat, somewhat soft and just uninspiring. Late last night I started printing some of the JPG files that I had neglected and all of a sudden the 100MP came to life. The difference was like night and day.
I know this runs contrary to what a lot of people feel about JPG vs RAW, but I think the 6D is just optimized for JPGs and happens to do a wonderful job with them, whereas Canon seemed to have left RAW processing up to the end user. I know this is usually the case (my 5D MKIII is exactly the opposite, the RAW files actually being sharper than the JPGs) but so be it. I am now seeing some images that I have shot with the 100MP look the way I felt they should.
So, yes the 85 is pretty darn good and actually not a bad lens at all, but the 100 is a bit better across the entire field, better at close distances, and better at wide apertures.
Thanks to all who made suggestions, but I think I am starting to understand the lens and get it under control now.
