Again one of those mkt things. Technically yes 6d has less noise than 5dmk3 but I can show you ISO6400/ISO12800 shots from both and hard to tell them apart. Forget anyone telling from prints. Now with 5dmk3 I can nail focus mush easier than 6d. If you shoot non moving things or most at or slower than f2.8 or center AF focus/recompose then then save money and stick with 6d.
Definitely agree, having had personally shot concerts, marching band competitions that run late into the night, etc. There is a point that it's too dark to really get much with the camera unless you have a tripod for a long exposure, or you are going to paint the scene with light, in which case, you would have the flash's AF assist to help you anyways. The 1D3 was about as good as I personally needed a camera to be regarding AI Servo focus, but it appears that the 5D3 and 6D are there now too. It gets to a point that specs matter little to most photographers, and they become marketing tools. We need Canon to work on the dynamic range at this point, and not low light focus or ISO.
