That's The Sort Of Information I Was Looking For!
In reply to biza43, Feb 1, 2013

Thanks a lot, Paolo:

This is exactly the sort of information

I was looking for. I have occasionally

pictures of mine printed large (sixty

to ninety centimeters, done by a pro-

fessional lab). And, yes, I do a lot of

long exposures on a tripod at night

(often 30 sec). I had not thought

about the better viewfinder so far,

that being the third thing you men-

tion which might steer me into the

buying the 6D rather sooner than

later mood. A very useful to me

post of yours: Muito obrigado!

PD. The 60D's rotating screen you

refer to will/would probably be what

I will/would miss most for my city-

scapes and architecture shots with

the tripod...

Just for you, Paolo: a remembrance of mine of your home-town

For image quality, under non-challenging light conditions, you would not see the difference. Of course it also depends if you print small, large? Really big? Now, if you talk about long exposures, on a tripod, the full frame will be better, as it will handle noise better. Long exposures from my 7D (same sensor as 60D), at ISO 100, would have more noise than long exposures from the 6D. That is why I bought the 6D, it would improve my landscape shots.

Then, there are operational considerations: the 6D has a much better viewfinder than the 60D. But, it lacks the rotating screen... as for lenses, full frame will open up the true potential of some great lenses, eg T/S.

I still have my 60D, that I have kept to shoot macro, where the rotating screen is important to me.
