Yup Yup Yup
6D is a nice introduction camera with good ISO capabilities.....end of conversation. It is placed in canons line up where it should be. I have not tested the 6D but i will go out on a limb and say that It completely falls apart when compared against the 1Dx and 5D3 AF systems and what they are capable of doing......just a guess on my part
Good guess on your part.
The question is, who in their right mind would enter a 6D into a competition against the 1DX and the 5DIII on where the judging is on AF. Why bother - it's a loss right from the start!
While I think the rest of your rant was spot on, I think you discredited yourself by taking a cheap shot based on something (AF capability) that is not even meant to be a feature of the 6D. The low light focusing capability, yes. But AF points and AI Servo tracking, not at all.
Just ranting back because if I enter the 1DX and the 5DIII into a wireless remote shooting competition with the 6D, they'd both lose, but it'd be a stupid competition for them to enter in.
I'd love a 1DX just to own a 1D series, it's been my dream camera for a long time (1D series, anyway) ... It's like dreaming of a Ferrari - I'm not going to race it, but I still want one! Regardless, I really love my 6D which I have in my hands and it does everything I (for my needs) need a camera to do, and even more. However, fast blazing AF was never on that list, for me.
The 6D wasn't meant to blow anything away. However it's been shown it has the "slight" ISO and DR advantage over a 5DII, the main "opponent" of this camera as I've seen here on POTN at least, and honestly everyone expected it to be much worse because it's an entry level "Rebel FF". I say these are a bonus, I never expected to have.
I did expect to have WiFi, GPS, and FF. I got those things and have found a lot about this camera that to me, based on my expectations, have been a bonus - and that's a good thing!
