6D VS. 5D Mark II - upgrade dilemma.
Sep 19, 2012

I bought the 5D II few months ago after being disappointed with the high price of the new 5D III. I preferred to spend the money difference on lenses rather than the body.

However, I am really far from being happy with the autofocus capabilities of the 5D II in low light. Do you think the 6D is a great improvement on this field? or should I just save and upgrade to 5D III in few years?

What do you think in general about selling a 5D II for a 6D?
I tried to count the differences, tell me what you think:

+ WiFi, GPS (I use GPS logger, with the 6D I can get rid of it)
+ More sensitive central focus point (by how much? what difference does it make)
+ Lower noise at high ISO

  • only 1/180 flash sync

  • only 1/4000 max shutter speed

  • no sync-cable connection

Did I miss anything?
What do you think?
