Tom: The SD15 wins he color contest hands-down IMHO. It would be interesting to see Carl's example where the SD14 is better.

Not sure Carl says it is better, just different:

For the subject matter (hi-tech electric bicycles) I think it is very appropriate.

Like I said, Carl is very very good at it. I like the look of these photos (at the moment it is what you see when you go to his home page but the link will take you to the specific shoot if he changes his home page in the next few days).

You mentioned you have the 85. Do you have to adjust it for metering differences? I need to shoot mine at +.7 much of the time.

We probably use our lenses differently. I use my lens inside a church for low light stuff frequently. Last week I was shooting at -0.3. Exposure was OK but focus was poor (it backfocused). I have not seen a need to shoot at any +EV settings with any of my lenses. Maybe my SD15 gives metering results a little bit (or a lot) differently than yours.
