Is it just me, or does the 6D feel like a full frame Rebel? That's what I got from it.

I can't afford the 5D Mk III, so I've still got my eyes on the Mk II. I'd buy the 5D Mk II over the 6D any day.

even if true, it's still good for photos, and in the end all that matter are results.

The image quality and build blew my old Rebel out the water. It was like going from a base model Camry to a Ferrari...

It's a full frame 60D minus the swivel LCD, and with the outer AF points of a 1100D.

Although its not like the AF on the 5Dmk2 is any better.

Word.
It was made to be a light, small FF DSLR. You can't build it like a tank and keep the weight down :cool:

I'd say it was mostly made to be cheap, but that's just semantics, right?

Its not just you. I felt the same way when I held it compared to the 5d mark ii. 6d doesnt feel as solid.

true, but quality of the camera is still important. Would you feel comfortable taking it out in light rain if you have too?

I wouldnt consider the 6d a Ferrari. More like a Lotus. 5dmark iii = ferrari, 1dx = Lambo

You may want to think that over again.....

Or a pointless expense. Much like GPS, WIFI, in-camera processing. I'd rather have the option to not pay for things I don't need. Depends on your POV, I suppose.

About the size of the 6D... Put a grip on it and you'll never notice. I shoot a 60D and a 5D, both with grips. After 3 minutes in my hand I can't tell the difference.


Dedicated APS-c shooter. Gripped 60D, 60 2.8, 10-22, 15-85, Σ70-200 OS and a big white something or other! Plus a 5D w/28-75.

I suppose it depends on what/how you shoot.
Having had cameras with and without... I wouldn't buy a camera without a swivel screen ever again.
It's just sooo useful.

Yeah GPS and something that lets you view your shot in an uncomfortable angle a lot easier are two different things imo
