Appreciate the comments. Those shots are all with my 7DmkII and the 6D is new so was looking for anything anyone may have to offer.

Nothing to add - it's a relatively basic camera compared to the 5D4 or 1DX2 but, combined with any good lens, it can hold its own even in poor light. Or should I say, especially in poor light. I find that it can focus in near darkness - this is especially useful if you are using flash/strobes without a modelling light or poor focus-assist.

I found the same with my first shoot today. It was a bright day and I took some shots of a highway bridge over an estuary...............​identical shots to those that I had taken previously with both the 7dmkll and a 5D3, which were fine. With the 6D, using the Tokina ATX 11-16 and Canon 24-105 I found the highlights/clouds were more blown whilst at the same time the underneath of the bridge (shadows) were more filled and the pillars had severe purple fringing on one side and green fringing on the opposite side when I tried to recover the shadows. I couldn't recover either to get a usable pic but as I haven't used either lens in a long while, I won't jump to any conclusion on the camera yet.

You'll love it Kev, just give it a few days. (Isn't the fringing a feature of the lens? Some of my lenses are worse than others. Just fix in LR.)

I think this is right, Annie. I've not run into any CA to speak of with mine but I use only Canon lenses. It is caused by the different colors in the spectrum not converging on the sensor plane in proper alignment which is the fault of the glass. I do have the 24-105 L and it doesn't have any CA problems.

Funny that, I remind myself of that exact same situation every time I take a shot ie 'mind the spectrum not converging on the sensor plane in proper alignment' when you take this shot! (Just kidding:D )

A wonderful piece of information that is! I truly like it :)

Thanks yes. I agree it's likely the glass but I'm just a bit perturbed and doubting as my original 24-105 never exhibited this behaviour. I picked up a used mint one (or so I thought/hope) for A$500 at the same time as the 6D. I need to take more shots before I pass any judgement but as is normally the case when I get some new gear needing testing, it's pouring with rain atm. I had a "brain fart" when I bought the 6D thinking that I would use my 40 pancake on the 6D for street work forgetting that I'd sold it towards financing the 7Dmkll combo but the 24 pancake is the one still tucked away in a drawer so that's another lens out of the equation! :oops:

I guess we all have the wobbles when we lay out money for new kit and get a few pics that don't live up to expectation.

Managed to get out in the garden for 5 minutes during a brief respite from the rain. I did notice though (IMHO) when processing, that the 100-400 is much sharper and the 6d resolves reds much better than the 7dmkll

Only thing I might tell you is what I experienced going from a 600D to the 6D and that is pretty vague, and it may be just me. The 6D acts different, it took some time for me to get used to. I started shooting it just as I did my 600D and my initial results were not as good as the 600. My pictures were usually much darker given the settings that I was using which were very much like what I was using with the 600. This was exacerbated if I was outside in bright sun and it was worse if I was dealing with a sun/ shade situation. So I was a little bit disappointed.

Took me a month or so to get dialed in to the 6D but at this point I can get pretty much exactly the results I want in any situation. You may be able to step right into this camera but it took me a bit.

Good luck to you......I think you'll really start digging it after a little courtship.

Thanks for the additional comments. I shot at a birthday party of one of my grandchildren yesterday and was very pleased. Shooting at ISO 1600 and required very little clean up of the small amount of noise that was there. I did find out that my Sigma 50-150, f2.8 in not a full frame lens though. Fortunately I was able to crop inside the vignetting.

It was 87°F on this the last full day of winter. Spring has started showing itself so I decided to capture a few images tonight.
