I had the 50D for a while, loved it.. But it had 9 cross type AF points..

I sold my 5Dc for the only reason: lacking AF accuracy on the outer points. It drove me mad.. Bought a 7D, but actually I don't really love the digital feel the pictures have.. Coming from a 5Dc I'm really spoiled I guess.. I just can't love the pictures it produces. So I'm trading it for either a 6D or 5DIII.

But the opinions are different in this topic, from the 5DIII topic.. Thats what confusing, so I know it has been asked 2000 times... But the answers aren't quite consistent.

well, it's certainly on the level of the 5Dc (which I dont have major issues with).

You gotta remember that you're not exactly comparing apples to apples either, the crop factor is VERY forgiving with much wider DOF. FF dont mess around in that regard. I feel the 6D is considerably more accurate and faster than the 5Dc, but that's my personal feeling on the matter. I have no way of proving it, but I do shoot both regularly.

I have not used a 5dIII, I wanted one but just could't wait long enough to justify that price.

The 6D, while it doesn't have x type sensors on the outside, seems to do so much better even on the outside sensors than my 60D, which did. That's all I can compare it to because I've use both.

Honestly, I don't remember the 60D being all that much better than my 10D that I had years ago, but I didn't use them close to each other.

I'm sure the 5dIII is vastly superior for moving items, but I don't know if it's any better for stationary items. If you are shooting things on the move a lot, then you just have to decide if the extra $$$ for the 5DIII is worth it to you.

That's the main reason, I agree 100%.

So even the outer centre points are fast and accurate using the widest apertures on both lenses?
Cheers

You do realize that all DSLRs use the widest aperture that the lens is capable of every time it focuses, yes?

It does not matter if you have the exposure set for f/1.4 or f/22. The aperture only closes down when you trip the shutter.

Of course, this assumes that you are not using a manual aperture lens, which would certainly be an unusual case for most photographers.

Every once in awhile I'll come here and post a few shots from my 6D just in case someone is browsing to see sample photos to determine whether or not to get this camera or not.

Here are a few shots from the last few days of shooting.

Some recent weather shots ...

1. First one is a composite of 9 shots with the 40mm Pancake

Lightning Night (external link) by ddk632 (external link), on Flickr

^ Composite of 9 separate lightning images, all long exposures with 6D and 40mm pancake. I've blended the most dramatic sky and many of the lightning bolts into this one image. There are also light trails from an airplane above, and from several boats in the water below.

2. 6D + TS-E 17, brought out the sky quite a bit in this one, "Crazy Sky"

3. 6D + 40mm Pancake, crop to close in on the action

Nope, was using my father's old Nikon lenses :) I wouldn't be posting Nikon shots in the 6D thread ;)

I rented a 5D3 a couple of times after it was released and found it to be a fantastic camera. However, it was way out of my budget at the time so I began saving for one. Then, the 6D was released and for the hell of it, I rented one last spring and absolutely fell in love with the images it produced. By that time I had enough saved for the 6D kit with the 24-105mm f4L and I bought it. I have not regretted the purchase since nor felt the need for the AF of the 5D3 since I don't shoot sports. Occasionally a local soccer team asked me to shoot their games and I find the 6D still out performs my 50D. I have also found that the 6D focuses quickly with the 50mm f1.8 compared to my 50D. The 50mm on the 50D was prone to focus-hunt on even the brightest days. I rarely have that issue with the 50mm on the 6D.

Also, I get the feeling a lot of 5D3 owners are a bit subconsciously upset that reviews tout the lower-cost 6D with better low light high ISO images and focusing and thus have tendencies to bash it. A lot of them have probably never used one either.
