That's correct.
But... there's also high ISO noise and there's shadows pushing at lower ISO (and amplifying noise).

RE: should you give up Canon lenses. Well you've already invested in a Nikon body. Are you finding yourself using the 6D? If not, then selling your Canon equipment gives you cash for more Nikon lenses. When it comes to DR, Canon made a major jump with the 5D4 (not sure why 6D2 wasn't given any DR improvements over the 6D). So if you had wanted to stick with Canon, I would have recommended finding a deal on the 5D4. I'm not sure what price point is "high end" ...but at least most popular zooms are competitive with Canon vs Nikon.


Canon 5D mk IV
EF 135mm 2.0L, EF 70-200mm 2.8L IS II, EF 24-70 2.8L II, EF 50mm 1.4, EF 100mm 2.8L Macro, EF 16-35mm 4L IS, Sigma 150-600mm C, 580EX, 600EX-RT, MeFoto Globetrotter tripod, grips, Black Rapid RS-7, CAMS plate and strap system, Lowepro Flipside 500 AW, and a few other things...

If nothing else Canon lenses are somehow cheaper then Nikon equivalents at least here where I live and you can get here far more used equipment for Canon.
I don't know how Canon vs Nikon lenses compare and perform but sometimes I wonder how it would be if I went for Canon instead Nikon.

I went through 2 Defective D750s in the last month previously had 6D but prior to that was lifetime Nikon shooter from Film through all digitals from D1X on UP in both US and Overseas Iraq, Afghanistan, Kyrgyzstan and couple of others. First got EER bad shutter 1st week second after 2 weeks would go from single point AF back to 51 point without two button reset every time. All others in store were fine. Went Canon, Nikon has lost the edge on build quality and Customer service in last few years. And common lens prices are Crazy high. Sold all my Nikon glass in three days replace with L glass shots look fine. Nikon 20-210 B&H $2,496.95 Canon 70-200 L $1,799.00 big Difference
