Great lens but boring bokeh. Lacks character (or you guys are no good at making interesting bokeh shots).

What you are saying in the conclusion is that the OVF of the Canon was not up to the task of confirming focus. If you had tested on a Sony with EVF, maybe the conclusions of mis focus would have been different (focus peaking and magnification views).

Well deserved GOLD award Sigma.

No one takes extreme statements seriously.

Try to see in grays and not just black and white.
