I read that here and there but never noticed that in real life. I hardly see any difference in high ISO performance between the two bodies.

Agree. At ISO12800/25600 pictures from both are no good as light is so bad IMHO.

So, has anyone answered why they are up for sale? Are the numbers disproportionate compared to any other new bodies?

I would say the kit deals or gear hogs, who once they get into ff just need that 5diii because it is the next step up the $ chart. (From a self confessed gear hog, yet have found contentment in my 6d)

I came real close to buying a 6D before I bought my 5d3. I know myself and I knew I would sell the 6d and get the 5d3. In the long run I saved money.

This. I had my eyes closed to anything but my 7D when I got started a few months ago. I love it, but that 5D3 is calling my name now!!

Wife gave the go ahead for a body upgrade so I am looking at either the 5dmii, 5dmiii or 1dsmiii. The 6d isn't an option due to the shutter speed limitation, sync speed and lack of the thumbstick. The plusses of the 6d such as wifi don't interest me.

My sister, the professional baker and cake decorator once told me that my camera takes great pics. My reply was that I thought her oven baked great cakes.:lol:

lack of the thumbstick.

I'm not knocking the 6D at all, I like the way it handles/size. But, the big thing FOR ME is what I quoted, I'm so used to using the joystick that it really drives me nuts when I have to use a camera that doesn't have one. I really think Canon should have included it :confused:, this goes for the 60D and 70D as well.

I think lots of people buy a kit and seperate it to make extra $$'s and thats why we see so many for sale. Not sure if it's worth it though!

I got in on that $400 rebate deal with BHphoto. I sold the 6d & 24-105 and ultimately got that Pro100 printer, 16gh card & 50pk of 13x19 paper for $90 and I also got a $400 gift card which bought most of my kids school clothes.

ya, that deal was worth it :)

5d mark 2 for sure.

6D - entry level FF vs, well, a 5d FF

You made a good choice! ENJOY!

Really? Would you prefer a 5d classic over the 6d then?

How about 6D- new technology vs, well, a 5D ii- older technology.

I've worked with both and the 6D performs better every time.

Well if you can't take great photos with the 5d2, newer technology ain't going to rescue you.

I seriously can't believe anyone is choosing the 5D Mk2 over the 6D if both are at the same price point. Of all the considerations that go into a top-tier DSLR purchase, a freaking joystick overrules everything else, including major improvements at high ISO? The sole exception is if someone is frequently using fast primes for portraits outdoors and the 1/4000 s issue actually affects them. At least that's related to your images instead of some superficial nonsense like a button change.

If you ignore the DR issues that currently plague *all* Canon sensors even up to the 1DX, the 6D is probably the best FF value on the market.

It could be that people are buying and selling for profit. If I sold my 6d for 1200, I would break even....

Printing at home ... really don't think it's worth it. I don't think it's any cheaper, considering how cheap it is to print at Costco.

The ISO on the 6D is a good one stop better. And wifi is actually useful. Plus it's the lightest full frame DSLR money can buy.
Also 1/8000 is a non-issue as you have ISO 50. Something the 5D2 can not do.

the 5D2 and even the 5D can do ISO 50 + 1/8000. Sometimes that 1 stop is not enough, but a lot of times, it is.
