Re: Again on cross points

If cross points are so close to the center in d600, is 6d focusing system so much worse? Aren't users of d600 going to focus and recompose anyway?

Well I think that on D600, you can always use the selected point and the cluster of points around it. So the camera will aways get more information about the distance than 6D gets from a single linear sensor.

(sorry for posting the same question in multiple threads, but at least in 5 threads there's a discussion on 6d focusing system...)
