To be perfectly honest ...

It's probably not the best landscape camera ever and it's certainly not the most versatile camera ever either.

It's still a great camera though.

"Canon 6D - Most versatile landscape camera ever made. "

So, when you say this, you don't mean it.

"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.

Well, there's also the fact that the camera is cramped for doing any handheld viewfinder work. 5D and D800 are far superior for this. I would get a D800 or 5D3 instead for viewfinder work in long durations."

And we could go on ... but it's not necessary.
