Would you buy 6d again?

Hi all,

I am tempted to upgrade my 5dmk1 to a 6d. For you who has done the upgrade: Would you do it all over again?

I have considered going with one of the new mirroless systems (due to weight) but have come to the conclusion that I will be missing out on all the creative features available with my set of lenses.

I must say, I had hoped for a lot more in the AF-department. My 5d is wonderful in all other respects than the situations, where I want to catch action.

I have also learned not to thrust anything but the center-point. This is alright in most cases. But after all, it also feels a bit stupid. I should really have like cross sensors all over.

On the other hand, I am more than fine with the pixel density.


- what is the general verdict on the 6d. Is it a winner?

- is there any real improvements in the AF-department?

- should I buy or wait and see if Canon get their act better together?
