Anyone used a 6d + 17-40 for Milky Way shots? I know that lens is not the best choice for it..

Since I'm new to the 6D family, how do most of you have your camera set up? For instance, in the menu, I set things for focus priority when that is an option. I usually use AI Servo with back button AF all the time but is that the best way to use the 6D? Most of what I will be shooting will be moving to some degree, unless I'm locked down on a tripod in single shot shooting a landscape scene.

Any suggestions for some starting points will be appreciated.

I've only shot a few photos so far.... just the evidence of hurricane damage with the 16-35 f/4 IS. When I get home from work, I'll have to check to see if it was set up in silent shutter mode because I wasn't used to the sound of the shutter and perceived lag when I took those photographs. I googled "shutter lag with the 6D" and most of the suggestions were to check if the camera was in "silent mode". It seemed slow to me, even when the shutter speed was from 1/500 to 1/800 give or take.

This is my first full frame camera. I guess I want to learn to take advantage of that as quickly as possible. I read through the manual once now. The camera itself isn't that complicated... not too many options from which to choose. This is good, I think... I'll be using the camera on Sept. 23rd at my best friend's wedding. It won't be my main camera. I will probably be using my 1D IV for most things. I'm not the main photographer so my plan is to use my telephoto lenses and stay out of his way. I will be using the 6D for indoors reception. The wedding is outside, just off the beach.

I use my 6D the same way you appear to be using your previous body. I shoot AI Servo, Back Button Focus and usually manual with me choosing shutter and aperture. I always have ISO on auto unless I am shooting bracketed shots or no variable light conditions (studio, all shade, all light). I have taken many shots in the 20k to 25.6k ISO range and even in those ranges the image still cleans up incredibly well. The main thing I had to gets used to was letting the ISO go higher than 3200, which is where I had to stop on my original T3i. Once you got with the 6D, you will be ruined for life on it's ability to see in the dark with the center point. Yes the outers are not as responsive, but I can focus and recompose in almost complete darkness with that center point. Don't let anyone convince you other wise.
The 6 FPS is a little slow of you are shooting sports, but it is not really a sports camera. I got the 7D2 for that. The 6D is a more than respectable camera and can really shine if you take the time to work with it and figure it out. I look forward to seeing some shots you post on this thread.

As an example, here is a photo I took at a wedding this weekend with the 6D and the 24-70 2.8 II

Thanks.... I'll use my 1D IV for birding but want to use the 6D for people and landscapes. I know my 1D IV stops focusing when things get dim and the 6D can focus when you can no longer see (slight exaggeration, perhaps).

I only plan to use center point anyway so the limited outer AF points won't affect me.

Mystery solved. The previous owner had it set for silent shooting. When I switched to either single or continuous, the shutter mechanism sounded more familiar, though unique to the 6D, as I expected. Every DSLR I've had has had a distinctive shutter sound.

Glad you got a 6d Kim, you will be pleased with it, it's a very capable body.
As for shooting, I would suggest only using AI Servo for moving objects. The shot above from Ron (very nice shot, BTW) I would use One Shot and focus on the eye and recompose, or use an outer AF point to grab the eye, still in One Shot mode.
Have fun!
