Not as big upgrade as you think

As someone who mainly shoots with the center point and recomposes, I was a little disappointed when I heard about the new AF system in this camera. However, I don't use outer points (I shoot a T3i Currently) and have gotten quite used to focus and recomposing. If I buy the 6D, then I'm technically upgrading to a better AF system, correct?


Your T3i/600D already has such a central high precision sensor. The only upgrade will be that 6D will find lock in (lot) darker situations. However, the final accuracy will be about the same as with T3i when it locks.
