You going to show the proof? And how many shot of active kid with say 85L to nail 1? Don't tell me you guys only shoot f8.
This is from this morning. It is a 60D with a manual focused shot with a $60 Lens that I got at a flea market that has an aperture stuck at 1.4 so all shots with it are wide open, but I do shoot at F8 quite alot on other lenses as it is the DOF I want.

This gentleman was walking quite briskly away from me down the pier. It is cropped some.
Another from this morning with same lens, same stuck wide open, but static subject that I was walking/moving admittedly not so briskly when shooting.IMAGE LINK: http://www.flickr.com …/stonemaster/10650615333/
Now did I miss like 15/20% of my shots while not really caring about what I shot while walking around(was there for my daughter to play with her camera), hell yeah I did, it is a stuck open manual focus lens, of course. But I think the point he was making was that if I can go and shoot 27 pics and be pretty happy with 2 of them (not 2 in focus photos, 2 I like the feel of) with that lens then the 6D outer points with a $900 lens should be more than enough to let me worry about aspects of the photo rather than "is it in focus".
If you are making technical data about camera gear, then by all means 5diii and L lens yourself out and compare and complain about pictures of L lens boxes, toddlers and cats shot at F1.2. If you are trying to make photographs and capture moods/settings/emotions/good pictures etc., then the true reality is that today's ****tiest AF systems are more than good enough for the job, let alone the AF the 6D has
