Re: How is this camera better than 5D2?

Everyone seems to assume that a cross point sensor is automatically better or more accurate than a linear sensor don't they. I accept that from the same manufacturer, at the same point in time, that is quite probably true. But technology moves on and I guarantee that you can find current linear sensors that outperform earlier cross type sensors. So let's wait and see how this admittedly modest specification on paper actually works in the field shall we?

For the 6D AF to perform as well as the D600 AF, using a point away from the center, that would require that Canon's line-type sensors are as good as Nikon's 8 non-center cross-type sensors. Wanna bet they're not?
