6D AF not as bad as you think


According to this guy who had a chance to test it out at the Canon Booth, it focuses and confirms quickly in near total darkness with a fast prime (50 1.4).

The outer points also perform better than the 5DII according to this guy who brought his 5D2 with him to compare.

Sure, AI servo may be a bit crippled with less points and less AF expansion options, but many non-sport shooters this is 99% of what they need in an AF system.

Use the outer points in mid to bright areas... use the center and recompose in dark to near pitch black areas.

This camera may outperform the 5D3 in the center.
