MarioV: The quality is excellent. I'd like this performance in a smaller form factor.. which will double the price. Cant win.

LOL. No you aren't. And that center point focuses better in low light than any other DSLR I've used that does NOT have AF assist.

Yes thats the first time I've ever heard anyone complain about the center AF point on the 6D (jaw was on the ground).

The 6D is already close to this :). Maybe your wish will come true with its successor, likely it will have this sensor as well.

cgarrard: Great intro article. :) Well done as always...

Being very nitpicky I'd say "with the exception of the Canon EOS 6D ...then the following : Canon DSLRs prior to the 1D X Mark II and 80D were known for poor shadow recovery, due to high levels of read noise."

The 6D has excellent shadow recovery and no banding :)

Rishi, take a look at this page, its almost dealing exactly with the point I was making about the 6D and how good it was compared to past Canon sensors.

Also, the 6D hammers the 5D MK III on this test :). C'Mon give the 6D a little love here. :)

Rishi, see what I mean!???? This is what I meant about the 6D being the first DSLR from Canon to not have the banding or big issues when pulling up shadows. Very good shadow performance from the 6D! Odd this came out after we went back and forth on it a little (which was fun btw).

The point was to show how the other cameras handle shadows is all. The 6D is the best of the lot there. I'd put my 6D up against the MK III any day of the week for pulling up shadows at base ISO is all I'm saying. To me it was the first camera from Canon where you could do that, and have really good noise characteristics without banding. I'm not saying its as good as the MK IV here, I'm just saying it was an improvement over past Canon DSLRS by a margin and it was overlooked at the time, and still seems to be :).

On numbers I agree Rishi, but practically, and using the 6D alongside so many other Canon DSLRS in the past I'd say the 6D was the first Canon DSLR that had excellent shadow recovery and no issues with banding. While the total DR isnt as good as the 80D, the image quality of the 6D is still better when you count other factors such as noise and color retention at each ISO level. Simply in a different league. The 5D3 doesn't have as good of noise control in the shadows as the 6D, and it also has issues of banding, whereas the former does not. Sorry I just disagree with you here except in total DR compared to the 1DX MK II, which we know is almost 5 times more expensive.

I've compared the 80D to the 6D, and there is no chance I'd take the 80D over the 6D for overall image quality, and the 6D recovers shadows better than the 80D when compared at the same ISO, with much less noise.

In DR yes, but not "many" stops. Base DR is 12.1 (If you go by DXOmark). But you're changing the point I made. The point I quoted in the article specifically dealt with poor shadow recovery due to high read noise, not total DR... therefore your comment has almost nothing to do with my original point really. :).

batmatty: It may be boring but it will certainly make a great starter camera from someone who wants to get into photography!

That would be great if the market didn't already have about 50 to choose from, and many cost much less to start.

I hear ya.

Nothing can stop degradation, its a natural law ;).

Politics and camera's don't mix. ;)

In fact I've learned long ago that if you want to have peace with those you love and like, don't talk politics or religion with them.
