I think there's been other tests as well. Monster is over-priced crap. Anyway, this isn't an audio forum, and most posts are now heading back to photography :-)



Well then how about a picture of some monster cable from the meca... :)

ie: exactly the same as the 5D4 and 1Dx2 :)

I thought the 6d2 has more restrictive # of points than the 5d4/1dx2. I thought it was specifically with the 2-4 and 1-4mk2 w/ the mk3extenders(and only across the 27 'center' points), whereas the 5d4 and 1dx2 have all points accessible with any f8 combo w/ the mk3 extenders.

It has to be a 2nd gen IS lens with a MkIII extender for 5D4 and 1DX2,. I think this is true of the 6D2 as well.

ie:
All the new 2nd gen big whites, 300mm f/2.8 IS II, 400mm f/2.8 IS II, 500mm, 600mm, and then the 100-400mm and 200-400mm.

I can't recall of the 800mm is new enough to count,. but I don't think so.

I think Canon has made it misleading about the AF compatibility with lenses and extenders. I was under the mistaken impression about more AF points supporting f8 from a DPR initial hands on impression of the 6D2. I'm sure their thorough review will be better detailed. Cheshire Cat had a helpful link. Canon only provides info about this at the 0:42 mark of their autofocus f/8 video

Canon EOS 6D Mark II: Autofocus at f/8 (external link)

Might be good to have some kind of reference for camera models and lens/tc combos....info doesn't seem to be readily available.

FYI 80D also has this same f/8 capability.

Here is the relevent page,
http://learn.usa.canon​.com …16/eos-80D/af_at_f8.shtml (external link)


and yes it is odd, this article does state that only the 100-400mm and 200-400mm apply.
Maybe this is so,. but on the 5D4, it includes all the new Gen II IS big whites. So mallrats is probably correct about it being different from 5D4,.

Here's the info for the 1DX2 and 5D4:

What's New: AF at f/8 with EOS-1D X Mark II (external link)

EOS 5D MK 4 Manual (external link)

pg 115 lists AF groups with lens/tc combinations.

These links should be tagged in their camera's respective threads.

Good to know there's some love for 500mm f4.5

I dont know why but this just bothered me a bit as if every person who picks up a dslr must learn every aspect of photography so that they can be be a great photographer. And if i am upgrading then i am most certainly doing it for the sole reason that i expect the camera to give me more professional results. Or as we would say on potn the camera would allow me more oportunities to be able to capture the moment more easily.

I was referring to an expectation that some folks have that all you need to get great photos is a great camera without having to put any skin in the game learning how to use it properly. A better camera won't give you more professional results on it own, It still requires an eye and brain behind it which understands how to use it to it's best advantage. A really good photographer can get much better photos from a 10 year old entry level DSLR than a newbie can get from the latest professional level camera.

My point was that it appeared you were basing your bias against the 5D3's lack of wifi and GPS on current technology. Now it is cheaper and easier to include wifi that also has faster standards.

No bias. I was talking about a couple of bucks back then.
Nowadays it is still a couple of bucks, but you get a chip with faster WiFi.

I guess the 80D has the same AF chip. It was originally made for APS-C and recycled for the 6D2, in spite of the bigger format.

Thanks, quite fun :)
Though the double-blind tests I am talking about are made by serious people from serious institutions.
