6d over 5dmkii everytime. Silent shutter, way better AF, seriously it can focus where your eyes can"t even see, better high iso, better color and sharpness, wifi, better overall ergonomics, both ends MA adjust for room lenses. It is a clear step-up over 5dmkii IMO.

The ISO on the 6D is a good one stop better. And wifi is actually useful. Plus it's the lightest full frame DSLR money can buy.
Also 1/8000 is a non-issue as you have ISO 50. Something the 5D2 can not do.

I've noticed a lot of 6Ds for sale as well ... so much so that I picked one up. A good portion of those are kits that people part out.

For the same price, choosing between the 5D2 and 6D is a no brainer IMO. Newer technology wins for me.

Why can't the 5D2 do ISO 50?

I jumped on a 6d on here myself and couldn't be happier. Well... I'd probably be happier with the 5dmkiii but I'd still rather have the 1k in my pocket which I spent on lee filters, lighting, umbrellas, backdrop, and my 17-40. I think it was a good choice...

Drawbacks, I miss the AF of my old 7d. Besides that and the 1/8000 shutter, and the joystick. The lowlight and full frame goodness on my wide open shots are by far making up for any shortcomings. Worth the money in my opinion.

The only thing I wish the 6D had is a wireless flash trigger. Everything else I'm very happy with. Quiet shutter is fantastic.

I went with a new 5d2 then picked up a 5d rather than the 6d and couldn't be happier with my choice. I think that the 6d is a good camera but I would buy the 5d2 over it every time. 1/8000 vs 1/4000 and sync speed of 250 rather than 160 were way more important to me than gps and wifi. No thanks.

Add an ST-E3-RT, and there you are. But better.

Maybe it's like the case of of the Porsche Boxster owner when parking next to a 911. "Hmm... maybe I should've gotten a 911 instead."
Haha... I don't know.

The 6d is fine as long as you manage your expectations. It is not a 5-series. But so is the price. Use it within its limits, it will not disappoint. Despite its disadvantaged AF system the 6d took top honours in TIPA beating out the Nikon D600!

I already owned a 5D2 and saw no reason to move to a 6D...nothing interested me enough to spend the extra money.

+1 mine too its called L mode just before you get to ISO 100.

I recall how bad the D30 was so the 5D Mark II will be just fine for me AF is not that bad at all and I have no banding either. Could care less about the wireless feature to be honest and the weight is fine for me.

I feel it's more a 993 vs 996 kind of battle.

Which is a bad analogy since I prefer the 993, but got a 6D. :lol:
