Maybe you are not viewing images large enough to notice the advantage of the FF sensor. Which leads to another question - Why bother buying expensive modern cameras, if all you need is a tiny little snapshot? M4/3 is fine for that, only overpriced.
"6D may have advantage at higher ISO, but the shadow noise is really as bad as with other Canon sensors of that age." - The advantage is 2 full stops exactly :). And you should judge image quality by the amount of information (detail) the image contains, NOT by the amount of noise. DPR offers you a nice studio comparison tool, which allows you to download the RAW files, edit them properly and then compare. Looking at the noise specs at 100% is just extremely lazy and proves nothing,

cpugourou: for 300$ get 2 6To 5400 rpm drives and plug them raid 0 for much better perf and same capacity.

How about we RAID 28 microSD cards, 512GB each :)

ecka84: Not bad.
Too overpriced.

I'm only defending the truth, which you (haters) are trying to bury under your ignorant pile of nonsense and fairy tales.
What's your problem? :)

onlooker: $1200 for an equivalent of 90 mm f/2.4?

You can use exactly the same shutter speed. What makes you think it should be different? Why it has to "match the optical rendering of the Olympus primes"? What if I like Canon rendering more? I don't have to prove anything to you. Google it.
Actually, it is you who have to prove to me, that physics have changed somehow, to your advantage, so that tiny little lenses on tiny little cameras with tiny little sensors are now beating FF in all departments, and are worth the ridiculous price they cost.
I didn't say that 5D3+F4 zoom is smaller. But it is much more convenient and cheaper. Although, if we count all of the primes it replaces, then it may be smaller an lighter too. I don't have time for that, sorry.

Focus Shift Shooting: Still waiting for the 8TB Black drive from WD.

I'd pay more for them than these 14TB drives from Toshiba any day.

Exactly.

It all has been proven already, with facts. Stop ignoring it.

All drives fail. I had DOA WD Red not long ago.
Toshiba as good/bad as WD?
Seagate - kill it with fire? :)

@DarkShift
6D shoots better pictures than any m4/3, despite its old sensor tech :).

@Impulses
Want more lenses? How much is m4/3 25/0.9 these days? I mean the 50/1.8 FF equivalent (got mine for $100). How much for m4/3 25/0.7, the FF 50/1.4 equivalent. How much for m4/3 20/1.4 pancake? Mine is $150.

I'd take two WD Green over one WD Black for the same price any day. Better be safe than fast.

"Olympus 12-100 is absolutely superior"
- Sure, sure ... what else is new?

@LightCatcherLT
The thing is that you are not buying an expensive tuxedo. You are paying 3-4 times too much for a low quality insanely overpriced tuxedo, that is three sizes too small for you :) and you are trying to tell everyone that this is the newest fashion ("wealthy hobo with megalophobia").

Well, of course, polar bears are vegetarian (snowtarian?) and they don't harm other animals when they feed. Right?
We don't even know what's wrong with that bear. Maybe he ate something he shouldn't have.
"need to share both the beautiful and the heartbreaking if we are going to break down the walls of apathy."
- OK, then what's your idea of happy wildlife?
"if the Earth continues to warm, we will lose bears and entire polar ecosystems"
- That's not what we should be worrying about. Much more terrible things can happen if the Earth continues to warm. How many people suffer and die every day because of the idiots running our planet? If you don't know, then you might be one of them. Believe it or not, but nature has survived things worse than us.
There are two choices:
Animals are starving, humans are destroying their ecosystem, mostly due to overpopulation, let's feed them humans. Sounds fair?
OR, leave them alone, let them fight for their own survival and fix the real problem instead.

Do you realize that an F4 zoom would cover those? Basically the kit lens.
Dynamic range and image quality are different things. FF wins with quality. Which is much more important for me.

5400 is fine for a storage drive. 140MB/s while empty, 120MB/s when full :).

ecka84: If we are going to ignore the price, then what makes it a better option than Samsung's 16TB SSD?

Well, the DDR4 will be EOL soon (in 6 to 12 month, as planned). Are you saying that DDR5 already knocking on the door? :)
