Nice shot...

Do you just shoot with ambient light?

Asking about my shots? The first two are with an OM Zuiko 50mm f1.4 and the last a Sigma Mini-wide 28mm f2.8 - classic manual focus lenses. Kind of odd to use $50 lenses on an expensive body but I like the experience and the results. The kit lens is very nice but I'm not interested in zooms or anything that slow. If you are then getting the kit is a no brainer - you can always sell it for more than the current difference between the body and the body + kit lens at current prices.

Very cool, I've always loved the shots that Zuiko makes, I'll probably end up with it or the Takumar 50mm once I get the 6D, I plan on getting an EG-S screen anyway. I realize the savings with the kit is huge, the only reason I ask is that getting the kit means saving for another pay check (possibly two depending on my plumber visit) and I'm impatient as it is... guess I should wait lol.

^Awesome shots! Which lenses did you shoot those with?

I'm about to buy the 6D and can't decide if I should go for the kit lens or buy another prime separately... how good is the 24-105L? Worth the extra cash?

The "kit lens" is a $1100 lens all by itself. It's a great all around lens. It's actually what made me get the 6D. I bought the lens for my Rebel and then saw the 6D bundle was $2400 so it made sense to upgrade. I think the "kit lens" designation is a little misleading in this case.

^I'm well aware of the cost of the lens, and I've shot with it on several occasions since both my father and shooting buddy both have one. The only reasons I'm unsure of it is that it means I have to save a little longer for the camera and I prefer to use prime lenses. That said, I'll more than likely get the kit since I can definitely make more by selling the lens later if I decide I don't want it.

Ok. I figured since you asked "how good is the 24-105L" that you had not used one. But, yea, the resale value should let you make a nice profit on it.

^Yea, I've used it a few times and it's certainly sharp, but I haven't really used it in any situations where I got a really good sense of what it's capable of. And mostly I'm just not crazy about the f/4 and zooms in general, but I'm sure it'd be useful in a good number of situations... plus it'd be my first L lens :)

Tokyo taxis. I'm really stretching the limits of the image stabilization here in the 24-105L. The 6D seems to make remarkably clear shots in these conditions.

And what are your thoughts? :)

I gave it a good work out yesterday, and spend the entire day shooting. I haven't been using my DSLRs for a while, and had been shooting almost exclusively with the EOS M since it was released. Even though I did a lot of walking around, the weight was very easy to manage. The 6D is a really good size, and feels nicely balanced with the 24-70 ii. Shooting experience was greatly improved over my past body, and the screen is lovely to review shots. Its also great to have quick AF again compared to the M.

I am yet to import the photos and review properly, but from what I can tell just from on camera review, the combination of full frame the a fast zoom are everything I wanted from low light capabilities. The ability to pull light from seemingly nowhere is superb, and that lens makes even dull flat lighting look interesting.

In a word - awesome.
