If this question has been asked before then I apologise.

But is the 6D capable of taking decent photographs of BIF? 90% of my photography is wildlife and most of the subjects are static, but I need a camera capable of taking good images of moving objects. I have considered the 7D as well but for some reason keep on coming back to the 6D.

I would appreciate your help and thoughts in this matter.

Since there are so many better options out there, the 6D is simply the wrong tool.

No need to write long essays about it
or even discuss it further.

Great answer!!

Too bad it's not the correct answer.

The 6D can be used for BIF although not ideal. Is it your priority? If not you are good to go with it with some compromise over other options. If yes, choose other options. In Canon new gear, that is only 70D, 5DMkIII and 1DX (7D has been retired).  You choose APS-C or FF sensor.  Since you asked about 6D, you must be looking at FF sensor. Therefore only 5DIII or 1DX is correct choice if BIF is priority. Choice is now determined by budget.  Lenses are not included and are extra.
