Wow what a statement.....care to expand on that. I am still deciding over the two. I will be using mostly for portraits, family and fast moving kids (which is my issue re the 6D autofocus ability).

Because it is smaller/lighter and image quality is as good if not better. The thing I miss most on 6d is the 8k shutter speed. There is no comparison on focusing abilities, 5d3 is definitely better. In my case the AF is set to ONE SHOT, so I'm not even taking full advantage of what 5d3/6d has to offer. If you will be tracking/shooting moving subjects then you would prefer 5d3.

Doesn't Auto-Rotate on Computer?...

Does anybody get their pictures straight onto their PC in portrait orientation?

From the 3 rotation settings on the menu, none of them affect how they upload to my computer, everything comes out in Horizontal/Landscape (ie. portraits on their side), regardless of the settings! :cry:

Still can't believe the low light abilities of this camera.

ISO 25600

QUOTED IMAGE

Man, so smooth at such a high ISO. I'm seriously thinking of getting one, and this shot just helped convince me.

You can't beat the Multi-Shot Noise Reduction (MSNR) setting. There's an option on the SCN menu called Handheld Night Scene. It works unbelievably well as long as there is no movement for a second.

ISO 25600. This image shows a lot more light than was actually visible. I almost couldn't see them to focus.

Hey folks, first post here, but have been lurking for awhile trying to get my mind around what my next camera will be. I have been shooting with a T2i for the past 2.5 years and was ready for an upgrade. Today I ordered the 6D w/ 24-105 lens and am so excited to get it! It looks like everyone here has had a great experience with this camera so far and I am looking forward to contributing a bit once I had time to work with it.

I've been pretty impressed with the silent mode on the 6D. It's waaaay quieter than the 7D. Aside from a slightly slower shutter release, does anyone know if it's harmful to shoot in that mode over the long term? Are there any other downsides besides the slower shutter release time? Nothing in the manual about it being harmful.

Eh no dice, the 6d kit is not available at the Oregon Fry's, and getting it here in WA will push it over 2500$ with taxes. Might as well order it from B&H with the few extras and ship it to Oregon again. So gonna have to decide in the next week if i want to drop the 2500 or hold off, and hope for the same or a better sale sometime in the spring............ so hard to decide.

It ends up being a very compact almost rangefinder sized SLR with a slightly wider than normal pin sharp lens.

Whats not to like? And it doesnt cost a bomb either.

Pancakes make the camera quite compact and easy to carry around the neck all day.
