Re: Canon 6D - Most versatile landscape camera ever made.

Johan:

"The only disappointment is the lack of ability for the 6D center focus point to lock onto low contrast objects. I do new lens testing on a textured wall with the same lighting on all my cameras, and the 6D just can't grab focus on it. All of the others, even a t1i can grab focus. This must be the tradeoff for having -3EV"

This is a bit worrying. Have you tried adjusting the autofocus sensitivity? I haven’t been able to get out with my 6D yet, but on my indoor focusing tests it seems very good.

Thanks for a great review, The 6D really does seem to be an ideal landscape camera. I’m really looking forward to the summer.
