@Karroly: NO NO and NO !! Wrong! ... This is an EXCELLENT frame that shows where the focus was placed and also how nice the bokeh / out of focus is or isn't. If only ALL the pictures in this sequence (generally very good mix) ... were as REAL WORLD USEFUL in other reviews. Your requested 'flat' shots tell little or nothing for meaningful ability. I simply HATE the 'test chart' type of test shots. Bravo - more low light shots at high ISO like this one please !!! AMEN
tongki: this is totally backward,Canon already has EF 24-105mm f/4 and now provide EF 24-70mm f/4,and we don't need stupid IS on wide lenses !!!
it really slowing it down !!!I don't like using IS on wide lenses, that is stupid idea !
I agree that IS can be very very useful (but I'd nearly always want another stop of light instead with my existing light people photography.
Oh and btw ... watch the video ...
Rory Lambert: Secretly the 6D is a PRO camera! The marketing is aimed to increase sales among non-pros, but pro shooters (and smart students) will snap these things up!
Two major markets that people are ignoring here: Serious Photo Students and High-End DSLR Video shooters.
1. Serious Photo Students (or self teaching photographers). Not just any photo student, but the ones that buy a beaten full frame body so they get their image quality and still have money for prime lenses. Lighting is natural or off camera flash. Think landscapes and portraits.
2. High-End DSLR Video shooters. Full Frame image quality is key. When a 50mm lens on a full size chip leans towards telephoto you tend to hate it if your 14, 20, 24, and 35mm primes loose their powers.
Focus is 99% manual. I could care less if the thing can auto focus at all. The amount of pro video work shot on the MKII would shock people. I'm talking Discovery Channel, Nat Geo, BBC, commercial work ect.
Lower-megapixel + full chip = IMAGE QUALITY.

Please play the video ... and ABSORB !!!
garyknrd: Actually as a birder I could care less. I am waiting on the 7D mark ll. Or what Nikon has to offer. Both are neglecting that market. What will be interesting is if Pentax or one of the others make a pro-body crop sensor camera. I would be all over it. Even though I have Canon glass. This glass holds its value. So i really loose nothing to switch.
Please ... listen to what this guy says:
robenroute: The red between her black scarf and the jacket's button is a rather clumpy cluster of just red pixels, missing detail/definition.
Don't be a dipstick - the focus is on the LEFT of the image !! The shallow depth of field means that on the right of the image, her red jacket is now WELL out of focus. Sorry but cretins like you make this place a nightmare - learn some photography before making such bold and inaccurate statements here! :(
