Ive been longing for the 50mm 1.2L for years, and finally fell to my passion, and got the 6D with the lens. So far impressed by the AF, and disappointed with AWB. All in all, glad to try Canon though, and wow what a great lens and colors!

I too picked up a 6D earlier this year to go with my D700, D800, and D7100. I got the kit so I have the 24-105, a 50/1.4, and the 70-200/2.8 II.

I haven't had very much trouble with AWB but the AF is better than I expected for so few AF points compared to the D800. The thing that gets me is the light meter in the 6D is much better than the meter in my D800. I also shoot lots of photos above ISO 6400 and they look pretty darn good to me so low-light wins on the Canon. I like the 70-200 better than the Nikon offering. I just wish Canon had the awesome dynamic range of the Nikons. If that were the case I would sell all of my Nikon gear and stick exclusively with Canon.

Make sure to shoot in RAW and never worry about WB again. :D

As you used both would you keep the 6d if you have to choose one, nikon or canon?
I have a 6d and thinking about the switch to d750 which will cost a lot and not sure if I should do it
still doing a lot of research

I love the 6D for AF. But the Df is a classic. And Im enjoying the difference in colors between the two. But the Canon gets most of my time recently - may wear off though, and maybe its the 1.2!

I am considering trying a Nikon as well. I have the 5D Mark 3. What Nikon will compliment the 5d mark 3?

what do you want from the compliment? Do you want faster, more resolution, smaller, larger?

The Df - for the classic look, and ability to pair with manual lenses. If not another Nikon might have too much overlap with the Mark III

You can also pair all your manual Nikon lenses with your 6D, I did with mine ;)

Personally I think the Df looks far from classic... but to each his own.

I personally think the D610 is better than the 6D, and throw a sigma 50mm ART on it, it ranked up their with the 50mm OTUS, pretty amazing!

Canon and nikon both have things i like, just like cars, its really hard to find everything you like. The ones I do like that have everything are over 2x my budget lol.

I've been shooting both systems for about 6 years now. They both deliver great images.
I only shoot full frame and only shoot RAW. Why buy a highly capable camera only to limit it's
capability by shooting Jpeg's. It makes no sense to me. I like RAW 14 bit files and use photshop
to PP my work. Otherwise, just buy a cheap point and shoot and don't waste the money on a DSLR and lenses.

For important photos I use 14bit RAW.
For fooling arround and posting low-res images on the net JPEG is more that sufficient.
