DoF on 6D - be careful.
Sep 27, 2013

I love my 6D but, a cautionary tale from anyone coming from an APS-C size camera (in my case, a 7D).

It is hard to remember that you have a much reduced Depth of Field. So, pictures that were in focus on a 7D, might well be misfocussed on a 6D. You have to take your time and do more checking.

MA is also much more sensitive and needs more care to get right.

So, a lesson for me (and maybe others) - if you are in a hurry with your snaps, the 7D is probably a better camera to pick up.
