Hello all!

I have had my hands on a Canon EOS 6D for the past three months and wanted to share with everyone my impressions.

This review is not based on marketing figures or datasheets. Instead this review will focus on real-world usage and results from the perspective of a working landscape photographer. I have no preference for Canon over Nikon, I own both and consider them equal. Price can be of major concern for many when considering camera bodies, however this factor did not influence my impressions or decisions and is therefore absent from this review.

You can find the review here (external link)

If you have any questions or comments please let me know!

Graham

Hello, Graham - I have one nit to pick with your otherwise fine review. In the review, you state that "The CMOS sensor found in the Canon EOS 6D is the same found in the Canon EOS 5D Mark III." From what I've read this is not true. The 5D Mk III sensor has 22.10 MP (5760X3840) while the 6D sensor has 20.0 MP (5472X3648). From what I've seen reported the 6D has slightly better high ISO performance too. Minor differences, but different nonetheless.

Thank you for sharing your hands on impressions.

Hello!

In my experience they have no discernible differences (I own both + D700/D800e), except for tricking people into making distinctions when none really exist : ) So although you are correct, this review is based on real-world results.

Graham

You might want to change the wording, if only to make the review more legitimate. Something like, 'they have essentially the same sensor.' Saying that they actually share the same sensor might turn people off of the review immediately.

edit:
Also the weathersealing of the 5D3 is better

I should also add that the review is solid otherwise, and the design looks great

I agree and have made the change to reflect this. Thanks for your feedback! : )
