Re: 6D autofocus -another route to f8 AF

I find that the 6D contrast AF to work much better than the same setting on the 5DII. Contrast AF is Live View AF Called "Flexizone " AF in the 6D menu for Live View. It was called Live "Live" in the 5DII. I am guessing that the lower noise in the 6D sensor output helps sort out contrast based AF and allows improved AF speed and reliability at f8 or smaller apertures, even with Canon TCs, which are reporting.

Sounds like a similar result to my 60D v. my 5DII - contrast AF on my 60D is quite useable for static subjects; not quite as good on my 5DII.
