It might be interesting to see what the camera enthusiasts who use this website might want.

Naturally, if I haven't listed the thing you want next, then select "something else" and explain what you want in your reply.


I want the accuracy of on-sensor AF while using a viewfinder (preferably optical), with the control system I currently have.

Love love love everything about my 6D, except the focus system available with viewfinder framing is crap with fasts primes wide open, especially outside the center point. I spend a lot of time shooting in Live View because of this. Being lighter and smaller would be good, but that is a lower priority for me.

To me, this is one of the biggest strengths of mirrorless cameras, and one of the reasons I keep trying to find a mirrorless system that meets my other criteria. Maybe some day. Or maybe Canon will make a 6D MkII with a better AF system.

Right now, though, if something happened to my camera, I would be buying another 6D. Of all the cameras/systems I know of ATM, it best meets my overall criteria.

Not because I think they are good, but because I would like to improve (feel free to provide me with feedback):
