Re: 6D - What are the other 10 AF points for?

I purchased a 6D mainly because I do a lot of 10+ stop ND filter stuff, and I wanted the cleanest shots I could get (which translated into afford).  I also want to start dabbling in milkyway galaxy and star trail landscape shots.  From my research everything pointed to the 6D, or the Nikon D610.  Since I already have Canon gear the 6D was the way to go since the 6D is better for low light than the 5DMkIII (which I lust after but can't justify the price).

Did you have a chance to read this link?:


This link explains very well how the f2.8/f5.6 plays in the spec of the AF point. The -3ev is the AF Point sensitivity.  Both of these are explained in the article.

I had to read the article above more than once to understand it.

This may help you as well:
