There are different sorts of focus shifts.
One is what happens in certain lenses (the EF 50 mm f/1.2L USM is an infamous offender) when they are stopped down, and the focus moves due to some stupid laws of nature.
The other is due to light of different wavelengths being handled differently by the lenses, so that the AF metering chip sees different distances to the subject depending on the light source that illuminates it.

The first one you can't do much about in the camera. The second one the camera tries to combat by measuring the incoming light and adjust accordingly.

No, I was specifically interested in the light/different wavelength issue. The 70D and 7D are pretty bad so obviously these cameras are not doing a good job battling this issue. My 6D is much better, this is virtually a no issue with the 6D.

I think Canon took a different way in handling this lately. The 1DX has a separate light sensor inside just to evaluate the wavelength, and adjust accordingly. I'm not sure if I remember this correctly, but I think the 7D tried to use the iFCL metering system to figure out the same thing. Which seems less effective, I agree. It's easy to see if you microadjust a 7D, since you get different results indoors vs. outdoors.

If you can't decide, let your wallet decide.

Agreed, get the best you can get for the money you have available. This way you can possibly grow into the capabilities of what you bought, and you have fewer regrets later. This thread has gotten a bit more civil over the past 12-18 hours, what happened?

I swear Bakewell, you just search for 6D vs 5DIII threads with the sole purpose of causing a stink. It's getting old dude. Go take some pictures.

Gee, don't you make the interwebs all warm, fuzzy, and welcoming?

I don't own either camera. I'm in the market for FF, and thus deciding. I don't post because I'm naturally passive aggressive and don't want to start crap. I read and learn.

The fact that my right to say something on the internet is being challenged is quite hysterical.

I've handled both cameras. I like both cameras. But for me, it comes down to the outer focus points and a joystick, which is my preference after owning a 7D for 3 years. For those two features, I'm saving up for a 5D3.

That's my contribution. Pick whatever gear you prefer. Go find a way to argue how that's stupid. I'd love to see you try.

Excuse me? I think the challenge came from you. Let's see...Passive aggressive is generally defined as non-verbal aggression that manifests in negative behavior. Ouch! Good thing we're on the interweb!

Since you don't own either please continue to listen and learn...

I'm glad you think your opinions transcend the digital page and are audible! Wow your opinion really must be god-like!

Good thing I'm an atheist.

Have a nice day.
