Re: Pluses and minuses of 5DIII vs. 6D???

I have recently gone through this decision, and ended buying the 6D. My main DSLR for the last couple of years has been the 7D, a fantastic camera. However, my photography has been more and more about landscapes and documentary/travelling. For this, the 6D is more than enough, the 5DMKIII would be overkill. The 6D feels robust in the hand, and after using EOS for more than 20 years, it took me less than 5 minutes to customize the camera to my needs.

One of the uses for this camera will be on a tripod, for star trails at 1600 ISO, shooting many files for later stacking. For this, I need better ISO 1600 than what the 7D would give me.

I am keeping my 60D for macro-photography, where the rotating screen is extremely useful.
