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?


Hi Martin

I've recently done the reverse & switched from full frame Canon's to the APS-C EOS-M to reduce weight & have found that for my landscapes, depth of field is so much greater, I can be much more relaxed about focusing, to the extent that when using my usual focal lengths at f/8, I can focus between 1 & 2m & everything's sharp!  It might make me a little lazy, but I can setup quicker & get more keepers.
