Can anyone upgrading from a T2i/T3i comment about the differences in AF ?

I am still wondering about that. I dont have much lenses for Full Frame and I feel the primes I have now ar not focussing as fast as my t3i+15-85mm. It's not perceptible for static objects but for exemple, with the t3i, I can walk fast in a crowd, the lens at my hip, fire away, and the AF will be near instant with the shutter press. I will get clear pictures. However I tried it with the 6D and the sigma 35mm to no avail. There's a pause between the shutter press, AF response and the actual shutter release. The subject is already away. You missed your shot.

I hope it's just the sigma lens or a difference from the t3i to 6D that I have yet to grasp. I need more testing.

Edit; but the 6D is the clear winner in low light of course. You can focus in moonlight really. Also there's a big difference in picture quality. Well worth the money.


Canon 6D | S35mm f1.4 | 135mm f2 The rest: T3i, 20D, 15mm f2.8, 15-85mm, 24mm f2.8, 50mm f1.8, 85mm f1.8, 90mm f2.8 macro, 55-250mm.
So long and thanks for all the fish

I'm going to India for 4 months next year and one of the main reasons I am going with the 6D is the weight. Every gram counts and I will have backpacking gear with me as well. Since I will be traveling by foot and train through an entire country these things are important.

That's my concern, i shoot a lot of street candids and i'm already missing shots because of the AF. What about the buffer of the 6D, i'm expecting it to be superior to that of the T2i/T3i.

Thanks for the info, i'll probably have to rent both the 5D3 and 6D before making a decision.

My 6D with 40mm f/2.8 pancake focuses really fast... The only time it hunts, which wasnt more than half a second, was at night.

Correct. I can either control the camera in basic form (shutter, aperture, etc) or selectively choose files to transfer to your phone's camera roll. Works great with my iPhone 5 but for some reason has been hit/miss with my iPad mini.

The only thing to note here is that the EOS Remote app, when transferring JPEGs from the 6D to iPad, seems to strip EXIF data. My iPad shows the images as 'no EXIF'.

That being said, the camera has its own built-in functions for WiFi file transfer, which I have not yet used. I'll report on it once I get to play around with it a bit more.

I believe one can accomplish much of the wifi file transfer of the 6D by using an Eye Fi card in the SD slot of the 5D3.

True, if you're considering file transfer only, after the photo has been taken; however, with Eye Fi cards, you will not have remote shooting capability.

Not sure why are you asking the question? What's your point?

You didn't say why you needed a cf slot, so I guessed that you may have wanted the faster write time of cf cards for large RAW files. So I'm presuming your external hard disk only takes cf cards, or else your point doesn't make sense either.

My workflow for the 6D is going to shoot RAW and small jpg, backup to netbook and review small jpg on the go with Lightroom.

these are stunning. What PP did you use, if any?

Where are you going in India? My GF was there last year for about 3 months. She interned in Chennai primarily, but got to travel around a few weeks as well.

Honestly the whole point of this is to not have any specific plans. My goal is to start as far south as I can when I fly in and then slowly go north by foot and train only. Eventually I will be in Nepal and I might visit china for a couple days.
