A full frame body was always my dream, but price tags of over $2500 body only withheld me from buying one. Two years ago when the 5d3 was released I considered upgrading, but the price tag of the 5d3 body was (and still is) too steep for me. In summer 2012 finally both Nikon and Canon released an 'affordable' full frame for about $2000. And prices of both cams dropped to $1600 which triggered me to buy one and sell the 7d. Fortunately only 2 of my 5 lenses were APS-C so I could keep the ...

The high ISO is exceptional early days, but this camera is excellent in terms of AF and ISO, with good glass its a winner.

awesome pictures up to iso 3200!!!! you do not need a flash unless you want it to fill in. :-) focus tack sharp, also with lateral focus points. 4.5 fps are more than enough for a pro-sumer, wifi very, very useful!! beppe

I took a Canon 6D + EF 50mm f1.4 USM to Colombia and  took about 700 fotos - focus was fine for my type of photography,mostly landscape, informal portraits, nice colors. Positives: reasonably fast  focus, very good performance in low light, very lightweight, nice viewfinder. Only drawbacks are the slower flash sync shutter speed, some controls I use are only accessible in menu and IQ, a bit less latitude in shadows than my D800 but for the money the 6D is a bargain.

I bought the 6D about a month after being released. Because my background and education, my photography work has two distant and different branches. L andscapes and photographs that look like XVII Century Dutch Golden Age paintings (yes, yes, Vermeer, Kalf, Claesz, Heda and the like you can check them out in the link above) The Canon 6D had some features that were relevant to me : Full Frame, High ISO with Low Noise, WiFi and GPS. I previously owned a Canon 20D before and I was upgrading to ...

I've had the 6D for several weeks now, potentially an upgrade from a 7D. Now I'm not so sure. I can relate to most of the good review comments. But I have some gripes too. Reviews never mentioned that the 6D doesn't have built in flash.That flash is great for quick fill light when your traveling light. I got an EX 270 mini flash thta will at least slide into my pocket. The GPS sensor apparently takes its place. Fair enough, but I wish it had been mentioned. The GPS isn't a bad idea for those ...
