I just took the plunge and ordered. I don't have mine yet but the wait to get it starts now. I got the kit because I think it is too good to pass up getting the 24-105 at a nice discount.

Looking forward to sharing a few pics and questions :)

Congratulations!
It is a good lens. Not sure how lenses are scored but it gets the same score of 9 as the new 24-70mm f/4L IS at FM Reviews.

12800 ISO and a VERY dimly lit arena.

Great action shots and nice quality at that iso.

So I've had my 6D for about a month now and it's been such an absolute pleasure to use. Coming from my 7 yr. old Rebel XT, the ISO, AF, resolution, EVERYTHING blew me away. I've always been used to the focus-recompose technique so using center point AF was natural for me.

That -3EV focusing threshold really intrigued me, so I decided to give it a shot one night. Our family went to the Del Mar 'Holiday of Lights' before Christmas (unfortunately a complete waste of time and money) and there was really nothing interesting to shoot at all. It really felt like we paid to be in a giant 'traffic' circle around the Del Mar racetrack to see Christmas lights 100 yards away from the car.

Anyways, I digress. I was able to see how well this AF system accuracy was really like in low, low light and wow...

Shot of my shoe while waiting to get out of the racetrack...

RAW converted to JPG, 28mm, 1/30, f/1.8, ISO 256000, color balanced adjusted in post and chroma NR set to 14 and sharpness 0 in DPP:

Cropped:

Mind you, my shoe was facing away from the Christmas lights on the field, the cars behind us had their lights off, and I was able to get a pretty clean shot focusing on my shoelaces...

O.o

My Canon XT would NEVER be able to pull that off... Yes, I am a VERY satisfied 6D owner :D

Whichever camera you're using I am still a fan of your awesome landscapes and starscapes, will follow on Flickr.

Add me to the list of people who want to know what you thought of the 6D - I presume Canon sent it to you so you will write a full review with your thoughts on your website? I would love to read it.

Hi guys.
This thread had inspired me to purchase my very first dslr camera on the weekend - went straight for the 6d + 24-105l lens kit.

I’ve got a couple of jpeg Auto shots I would like to upload onto this thread, though how to I go about doing this due to the large file size?.:oops:

Stephen.


Sold my first DSLR & lens = 6D (24-105L) & (40)
Now what prime should i get with the 7d mark ii?...

And definitely do a little research and most importantly EXPERIMENT! Auto is pretty great on modern DSLR's, but you can produce even better shots when you have an understanding over Manual exposures. Read up a bit on aperture, shutter speed and depth of field and then you'll be in a good point to get started ;)
