It is a nice alternative in your concern is image quality.If you want a fast camera get the III.

Thanks for your feedback. After a couple of days shooting with the 6D I agree with you that the 6D is a step over the 5D2 in image quality (I'm speaking about high ISO performance), the "missing" banding is also very welcome.

I'm satisfied with the speed of the 6D, since I plan to use it for portraiture work with bright fixed focal length lenses (50mm and 85 mm).

When I need the speed for action I'm using my D7100 which gives me very good results at lower ISOs.

Why did you sell your 5D3 if I may ask? (You write: "I had ...")
