We discovered a serious issue in PS CS 6 and CC: When adjusting the opacity on font layers it looks completley differnt than adjusting the opacity on shape or pixel layers. The problem did not occur in PS CS 3 and PS CS 5.5.

That is not an issue or bug, that is due to the antialiasing fixes for type.
