Got the 6d out of the box , charged the battery , installed sd card . To start with I put on my 50mm 1.8 to have a play . I've heard theses cameras are good at high ISO so I took a few shots inside using natural light on p mode and 1600 ISO .

Now the 40d in my opinion wasn't that good at that ISO so I was very impressed to see the results from 6d ,in my mind it's going to open up a whole lot of photo opportunities .

The thing that I like most is the massive viewfinder , it seems so much bigger when u look through it.
The focus seems spot on , I was put of a bit from buying one after reading about the af system from several reviews , but I also read two or three reviews from guys that have owned the camera for over a year and they loved the af on the camera. Going to have a play in my newly constructed studio .

The general image quality does seem to be quite a bit better than the 40d.

The AF system is actually beyond good. It doesn't have as many AF points as other cameras, but then how you use it depends on what your need is. I usually shoot center point only, and coming from a 60D with the 9 AF points, I was impressed with it. My 5D3 has a 61 point AF system, and I still use center point focus.

I'm glad you finally took it out of the box!!! Now...pics or it never happened!

1600 is nothing to the 6D, dont' be afraid to bump it up even more.

It's scary good at high ISO.

"The thing that I like most is the massive viewfinder , it seems so much bigger when u look through it."

This point is seldom made when comparing formats, but the larger view considerably enhances the shooting experience for me. As a long-time 35mm film shooter, I find the smaller view afforded by crop cameras challenging.

Regarding file transfer, I would like the option to do full-resolution transfers to my ipad so I can edit and forward the images in the field. No sense editing and forwarding a much lower res version unless I need to give someone a quick preview of what I am capturing. Then I have to warn them it is very low res and not to use it anywhere. In the end I don't bother and just use Apple's Camera Connection Kit instead.

Yeah! Go wild withthe ISO!

This is ISO 20000 (twenty thousand) with the 5DIII. Reportedly the 6D can do better...

There is enough detail in this photo (my criterion for NR is to maintain enogh detail, not to smooth out all noise), to tell the time:

100% crop

Hmm is that a wart on his ring finger? Is his body trying to tell him he shouldn't get married?

Also it appears to be 5:21pm

That's right! It is 1721... It was the first of two performances in the auditorium, no natural light...

I want to start taking some landscape photos and have a few questions.

What would be a good canon prime lens to start with for landscape photos.
What's a good filter system to use, needs to be interchangeable with other lens.
Is it worth investing in a polarising filter
What other filters would be useful to have

Also I want to take 4 or 5 photos and stitch then together , is canons zoombrowser good enough to to this as I want to print large on canvas.

Are you sure it is 6D, not 5D? :D

I jumped from a 350d to a 6d a couple of weeks back. Only mucked about with the 6d so far - but, you will be impressed.

As has been mentioned several times, the ISO handelling is incredible

There is no in-built flash on professional grade cameras
