Re: EOS 6D optical viewfinder vs. Rebel T2i

I didn't read all the other replies so sorry if I'm repeating, but to simplify it...

The 550D (T2i) has a 22.3mm x 14.9mm sensor, so 332.3mm (square) size. The 6D has a 35.8mm x 23.9mm sensor, so 855.6mm (square) size. The 550D viewfinder magnification is x0.87 of 332.3mm which is 289.1mm (square). The 6D viewfinder magnification is x0.71 of 885.6mm which is 628.8mm (square).

So the difference is about 3 times in surface area or 1:1.75 in proportion advantage to the 6D.
