6D for dawn / dusk BIF and for astrophotography
In reply to mariadc, May 7, 2013

For those of us with "budget" birding lenses ("budget" defined as at or below $1,600.00), the prime dawn hour can be difficult with a wide-open f/5.6 lens. I find myself running the 60D at ISO1600 or 3200 early in the dawn hour. Oodles of noise. Noise in the daytime at ISO 400 is perfectly fine, ISO 800 acceptable but not great.

Night photography and astrophotography is another area where the 60D/7D sensor doesn't shine. Granted, for astrophotography, you average out the image and subtract the averaged dark sensor read, and things improve greatly.
