Therefore the AFs in the 6D and D600 are covered by rule (b). The 6D is definitely better.

What we're trying to say is that the number of points is important for action. The number of outer cross points is important for fast lens (to avoid focus&recompose).

  • d600 and 6d have no outer cross points -> none is "better" for fast lenses

  • d600 has more points -> better for action

  • 6d has more sensitivity in the center point -> better for low light (on paper)

When I saw the number of cross points in d600 I was thinking about a switch... but being in the center doesn't help me with the focus&recompose thing. I don't do action/sports; to me higher sensitivity is better (low light it's what FF are supposed to be good at). So, if I had to choose, I'd choose 6d. But neither camera is "totally" better than the other; they're just different (don't get me wrong; on a lot of other points d600 is better).

Would I pay 200$ more for 8 more cross points, all decentered? YES!!!! It would become the "definitive" FF for me.
