Canon D6 AF System Questions
Oct 9, 2012

I have been intensely shopping for a FF since the price came down to $2100 on the Nikon D600 and Canon 6D.  I checked the Canon autofocus system on Canon's website due to questions I read regarding the introductory system it is claimed by critics to be.  I notice that the center is not a true cross sensor.  That is at f2.8 it is only a horizontal bar.  Other Canon cameras have at least a f2.8 cross sensor.  It appears to me that only having a single horizontal bar is less accurate than a cross.  I would appreciate opinions regarding this.  Will the 6D autofocus be just as accurate in low light as say a Canon 60D?
