I think I'm happier with the 6D 24-105L f4 combination than the 5d mkiii 24-70L mkii combination that I had. Plus I have more money in my pocket, sweet. I moved when a buddy pro shooter dumped 3 1dx's to go for the 6d's; it made me look at it closer.

Try get that 24-70L II back, it is a very comfortable and great lens to use on a light 6D body.
Otherwise the 5D3 and 6D are essentially the same camera, with different autofocus systems.

Have been looking through this thread and seen a lot of great looking pictures, along with discussions on the AF system. The one question I have about the AF system focus points is about the outer focus points. The center focus point from what I read and seen here works great. I would like to know what all of you think about the outer focus points and how well they work?
My reason for the question, there is a unopened brown box sitting next to me as I type with a new 6D 24-105L kit inside and a 5D3 24-105L kit sitting in my wife's Adorama cart. I find that when shooting I use the outer points on my current 7D far more than the center point. Just trying to decide weather to keep, and open, the 6D or go for the 5D3.

Thanks,
Craig

I personally have only used the outer points with F/2 or faster primes and I've not had any issues, can't speak for slower zooms, i'm sure others may be able to chime in and help on that.

I've been having trouble uploading but I think it may be my Avast again, not Flickr. Call me crazy but I actually like the new photo layout! I always love to look at exif data so having it always displayed along side of each image is a lot more convenient. The only bad things are when adding to a group has changed, when you export a photo to Tumblr it doesn't export the tags as well and it also doesn't remember to keep it on save to draft.

I do like the new light box layout, the photos look much better. The sharing part took a few tries the first time around though :lol:

P.S. Thanks for reminding me about Tumblr, totally forgot i had one :lol:

I like the new layout, and the new code displays the exif data when you hover the mouse on the photo if you have the right browser plugin, which the old version wouldn't do.

just ordered mine, cant wait!!!

hows the 24-70 brick on this camera? i am coming from a crop (50d), so the images from 24-70 have always been a bit dull/flat, so always in need of saturation boost in LR

I have the 24-70 II on my 6D a lot, and the two are a match made in heaven! ;)
