I don't give a rats ass about DXO marks.

Wifi and GPS are not built in. There are bolt-ons for the 5d3.

Yes, and as I stated it's $700 for the wifi adapter. It's also the size of a grip and just hangs from the camera attached by/a cord.

It doesn't matter in the least whether or not you care about DXO. The fact is that the 6D has a better sensor.

And the wifi and GPS are built in features on the 6D, which the 5DIII doesn't have. So the 6D beats the 5DIII there also.

Also for people who still use manual focus, the 6D is a better option than the 5D3. Slightly better dynamic range, slightly better noise performance at high ISO, exchangeable focus screens, WiFi and GPS for those who need it and at least about 1.000 euro cheaper than the 5D3.

Its quite simple with the 5DIII vs 6D. If your going to need an amazing autofocus system, dual memory cards, weather sealing and more customization etc., the 5DIII is for you. If you need basic autofocus, one card slot, less durability and less customization then the 6D is for you. Both sensors are simply amazing folks.

Apart from this -3EV @center point performance, the 6d is inferior to the 5d3 in every other measurable way on every available feature. Hence the cheaper price.

The 6D has better low-light focusing, wi-fi, GPS, and a superior sensor in noise and dynamic range.

The wi-fi and GPS is frivolous, IMHO, but a better sensor is a better camera.

Honestly, about the last few posts... if the 6d is so much better than the 5d, then why is the 5d still almost double the price? The answer is obvious. Good all round camera =6d, a camera that trumps it for professional users and uses= 5d iii

Plus the video on the 5d is much better. Anti aliasing filter, less moire trusted and used more than the 6d for video..

Horses for courses, the 5DM3 is a better camera but its not superior in every way.

The real question is how can the 5DIII cost almost twice as much as the 6D, all things considered, and why? That ultimately is the reason for all the 6D/5DIII conflict we see on this forum.

I don't feel that way at all. I feel I made a move to the 6D at the time to be able to utilize the high ISO that was required when my baby was born and in the low light NO flash allowed NICU for the first 4 weeks of her life. The main reason for me was that right there. It served it's purpose and I do love the camera. However I feel the 5D3 is worth 5 times more than the 6D in features. I just wish not to invest that much more when I don't "need" those features right now.

However for low light here is side by side with the ISO at 25,600. 6D on left and 5D3 on right w/ Sig 35 @ F2

Thanks for the comparison...I have notice that 6D ISO25600 have a lot of noise at shadow, but compared to others, the noise is not so bad.

there is also a significant price difference but yes, it comes down to whether you need the features in the 5D3- AF, 1/4000 shutter, etc.
