Is full-frame really an upgrade? Or is it just different?
3 weeks ago

I've been questioning whether I should convert from my Canon 60D to a Canon 6D.  I'm a passionate enthusiast but not a paid pro.  It would be incredibly rare for me to print my shots larger than 2ft x 3ft.

Is there a real discernible difference between these two sensors' performance at the 100 - 400 ISO range?  Are there example images to be shared?  I get that the 6D will prove superior past about 800+ ISO which would be helpful for astrophotography and indoor shots of my family, but most of my "important" shots are at 100 - 400 ISO.  Could the naked eye see the difference in sharpness, color rendition, dynamic range, etc?

If there's no real difference at those low ISO levels, I have a hard time seeing how it could be justified to switch considering the vastly greater vignetting and potentially softer edges exposed.

I understand that there are other implications to be weighed such as how the crop sensor affects the focal length and that, in turn, affects which lenses are available when considering an ultra-wide or general purpose lens.

I'd appreciate any objective feedback.  Feel free to open up about bokeh as well, but I can't find any great difference in bokeh when comparing crop to full frame when using comparatively-same lenses when crop factor is adjusted for.

Warm Regards,

Tom
