Last week-end, we have the occasion to shoot polo with friends. Compared to others, my color rendition is absolutely amazing, quite saturated for the grass for instance. I applied no PP other than cropping.
*
My main lens used for this was 135L, helped with 35L and 85L sometimes. I noticed this color rendition with wide aperture lenses, not with the zooms.
*
I found*that L primes, wide open, tend to under expose, causing this color rendition.

Any advice ? Here is the link : http://picasaweb.googl​e.com …b1sZibrQE&feat=​directlink (external link)

Every marque and every lens produces its own distinct rendition, depending on how well or badly the design is "optimised". There is no such thing as the perfect lens and probably never will be. On the other hand there will be numerous candidates for the worst.

You are comparing using RAW files and displaying with all adjustments at neutral I assume? It's very easy to forget the in-camera jpeg processing, or how the presets that white balance (shady, sun, cloud etc) and shooting modes like landscape or portrait affect colour rendition.

But this reminds me of the Nikon versus Canon questions we see here regularly. Anything out of camera is adjustable so should be considered as a starting point rather than a finished product. Image manipulation is as old as photography itself and all the digital tricks we use these days were invented back in the days of film.

I always describe RAW as what you take out of the grocery bag as you prepare a meal.'In that bag are all the right ingredients which you by design have chosen, now it's time to cook it together to finish the meal.

The 135L seems to have a look all of it's own - Sharp, contrasty and well saturated colours. Combine this with lovely silky smooth bokeh and you have a winner!
