some ability to convince you that colors are right. They look OK
while you look at the picture. So OK that you couldn't think about
them being wrong. But look at the real scene, and the difference
can be perfectly seen.

isn't that the point of auto wb? give people what they expect to
see. i think you should have used gray card for both shots...

You would think so, but I've found you usually can't digitally fix the total color balance difference. The wavelengths the lens let though are quite different and that difference isn't linear.

Looking at Sigma shot you are thinking "now that's yellow cast!"
but looking at real scene you see the same cast.

hehe, reality check...

The reality is you'll get much closer to the same color results with the Canon lens on the Sigma.
