Yesterday my new 6D arrived and currently I explore the camera. One thing I noticed instantly was the big viewfinder, of course. And I noticed also that, for the first time since I started photography, the judgement of sharpness and DOF is a lot easier than with an APS-C viewfinder. I think manual focus becomes more usable, and also full-time-manual-focus lenses are advantageous to have. Using the reliable cross-type point and manual focus, it's easy and fast to adjust the desired focus in your picture.

So, did a change to full frame also change your techniques as well?


Why waste time with manual focus when you can have the 50/1.8 for 88 EUR new? On my 5D it has no trouble AF-ing at all and the DOF control gives you new possibilties. A 50 mm works like a 50 mm, that's the reason I got the 5D.
