curious question:

given that the 6D only has 1 cross type AF point, is its performance comparable say...to when it was the day of the 30D and 40D? 1 cross vs 9 cross? i'm still curious about the af performance of the 6D especially its outer points when compared to the likes of a 60D.

Just got my 6d; and while I like it; i have one usability question I won't be able to verify myself for a few weeks (no local stores have one that I'm aware).

On my t3i; the shutter button is 2 stage; with a definite 'bump' in the middle between af/metering, and shutter release.

On my 6d; it's a smooth motion all the way down; there is no set 'halfway point' and no 'click', it's almost spongy. Is this normal?

1st half travel on my one is very light, 2nd 'shoot' part requires more pressure , but its much lighter than the 5d2.

I dont AF on the shutter so I dont really care, when I press the shutter button (at all) I want to take a photo.

Yea; I use back button focusing also; it's just odd. My t3i has a satisfying click; where I don't really feel any feedback from the button over the shock of the shutter flapping I don't think on the 6d.

Yeah I'm wondering the same, how did you guys focusing technques while using 6d? With fast lenses...and what about peripheal illumination correction inside 6d, is it useless if we shot in raw?..

I focus and recompose. For street photography you need to be fast. If you take the time to select a point, your subject is gone.

So long and thanks for all the fish

Speaking of which, happy good morning...

With F4 lens, focus and recompose with centre point works fine.

I think your camera is normal... on mine, 60D has a click but both 6D and 7D are smooth. I think it's the weather sealing... plausible?

OK, I have a question about custom shooting modes (C1 and C2 on the mode dial) and HDR. I was trying to set up C1 for HDR shooting, so I changed image quality to L JPEG (on menu 1) and enabled HDR Mode (on menu 4). Now I try to register the settings using custom shooting mode (on settings menu 4) but it's greyed out. If I disable HDR mode then I can register the settings.

If I do register the settings apart from HDR mode and set automatic updating and then switch to C1 then I can enable HDR mode, but when I switch to another mode and back to C1 the HDR mode setting hasn't been saved and it is disabled again.

So it seems like HDR mode and custom shooting modes can't be used together... but on page 329 of the manual it lists the HDR mode settings in the list of registered settings, which made me think it would work.

Has anyone else tried this?

Wow moved up to 6D & kit lens few days back. Sold my favorite lens Canon 24-70 & these days not so favorite Tokina 12-24 to raise funds. In fact the stores manager stated since I am starting afresh why not move to Nikon D800 on which he had great offer. No I said, especially since the 24-105 is at great discount as kit with 6D. Also NO to 36 MB sensor - even 6D I have set to mRAW.

6D is simply too good as compared to my last camera 500D. I am also liking 24-105 for that extra 35mm and IS (missing f2.8 of course)

The Nikon kit lens has enormous amounts of geometric distortion, even at medium focal lengths. 24-85
