Why is the 6D so gimped in focus points?
9 months ago

I'm a little upset about the number of focus points on the 6D, and the fact that it has only one cross type point. This is very odd considering even compacts have more focus points than the 6D, and even Nikon's entry level FF sensor has more sensor points than does the 6D. Did canon intentionally do this to drive users to the more expensive 5D III. it seems very strange to me that the 6D would be bult with so few focus points, given the price and other information we know about this camera, a camera which, according to many, is a fantastic camera that has other problems including the lack of a jack for a headset, which of course is something that is necessary for any type of serious video recording.
