Re: Camera to satisfy "action" needs: 6D or 70D?

Unless you feel the smooth pull focus of the 70D is going to be important for video I would say go with a 6D. I have evaluated going from my 60D to a 70D and concluded the IQ improvment would not justify the cost. I feel the 60D has a limitation of around 1600 ISO and perhaps the 70D will get you to 3200 without nasty noise. The 6D or 5Ds have very low noise up to 6400 so that even a 2.8 zoom works well in low light.

Indoors the 50/1.4 or 35/1.4 are my favorites for FF low light. Outdoors the 135/2 works really well.
