Hi all
I've had my 6d for a little while now and am slowly learning to trust its capabilities at high iso. Stunning!

Also, I had a problem with my 100-400 which Canon fixed under warranty and the tech matched the camera to my 6d. It has really made a difference and it's probably my most used lens now.

I've a 7d too but I have to say it doesn't get out too much now unless the light is really good. I miss the extra reach sometimes, and I know about ettr etc, but with the 6d I can use iso 12800 and know the results will be good without too much work.

2 shots attached are of Bandy, a sport akin to ice-hockey. It's very fast and the arena lighting not too good so both these were at iso 12800

thanks for looking

I am currently suffering along with a t1i that would be OK if it had micro-focus adjustment (My Canon 50mm 1.4 autofocuses about 24 inches too close at 10 feet, and most of the other 'good' glass is quite off as well). I have been saving my pennies to buy a 6D (really need awesome high-ISO for evening amusement park and flash-free performance pictures). But I am really becoming alarmed at some of the pictures being shown in this thread. Most of the low-light landscapes are stunning, the astro-photography is breathtaking, many of the portraits are nice, but quite a few photos have no contrast to speak of. I would understand if this is a design choice for a particular shot, but when every shot by more than a few specific photographers looks like it was taken with 5-year expired generic 110 film, I start to wonder if it is a fault with the body. Are ALL of the shots like this right out of the body, and the nice ones are processed to death, or is there that much difference between the different lenses used, and possibly body variation?

I am not looking to flame anyone's photos, but if you look at 15 or 20 random pages of posts, I'm sure that you can see what I am talking about. There is just NO 'pop', like a 20 year old Kodacolor print sitting in direct sunlight.

Please, help put my mind to ease (or shatter my illusions, if you must).

^I don't think the 'lack of contrast' has anything to do with this body.

Contrast really comes from the lens, lighting conditions, post-processing. At least that's been my experience. I wouldn't worry about it (and personally I think there are some contrasty photos on the last few pages).

You also have to remember that that washed-out low contrast look is a thing these days. And you have no way of knowing how much (or little) pp was done in these shots.

I agree with goalie Jake.

Contrast has never been an issue. In my last few shoots, the low contrast look was the look wanted by the subject.

Never had an issue with little contrast out of camera as lighting and lens seem to play a bigger role in that regard.

Nice action shots. I looked through your photostream and saw that you used a d600 before. I am curious to know which one you liked better. Do you still shoot with it and if not, why not? Thx!

Thanks to both of you, I'll keep putting my measly stipend into the piggy bank!

I don't get as many keepers with the 600 (in focus) but more than the 700. I am always fiddling with the focus settings, but I think crappy light is the biggest obstacle. That's what I have enjoyed about the 6d, more keepers and they seem sharper. I'm lazy so I shoot our high school sports in jpeg, then crop and post. That way they are up right away for the kids and parents. shayne

I'm saving to buy this lens before Thanksgiving. Looks so good on the 6D. That and the 85 1.8 should do nicely.
