It could be the shutter lag another poster talked about, the 200 millisecond figure vs the 60 second figure using BBAF. The lag is definitely there, but I dont use it in one shot enough to notice.

That's cool Talley...if you want it because it's bigger and heavier that's the only reason you need!

Well thats the two concerns I have. Weight and the ISO performance at 3200-12800.

I already know the difference at 25,600 and it's a good bit different.

6D left vs. 5d3 right @ ISO 25,600

Really there is a big jump in loss from the 5D3 12,800 to 25,600 where the 6D holds it's own. I don't always need that high ISO but it's nice to know the 6D holds detail/color/noise better

More than likely, you'll never notice it....

I bought the 6D for three reasons...FF, price and size. Everything else was negligible IMO.

Actually I admire Dave taking part in these threads. He stands his ground whether anybody likes his posts ( or him ) or not. The forum would be a boring place if we all agreed. As long as no one gets personnel, I like the banter............... :lol:
