Don't get me wrong, I do like this camera. But, what I dislike the most about it is not the lack of 4K video (which I don't need) nor the fairly limited dynamic range (which I can work around), nor is it the high price of the 6D Mark 2 that bothers me (I got this camera at a really good price including a rebate, a Canon Pixma Pro 100 printer, an OEM battery pack (which I love using), a 64 GB SD card and a 50 sheet pack of canon inkjet paper).
What I don't like is that the autofocus was borrowed from the 80D. It was fine on the 80D, which is a crop sensor but, the focus points of the 6D2 are squeezed into the center of the frame.
Just focus and recompose you say Fine for portraiture or when shooting objects which are not moving around. For moving subjects, servo-AF is needed and with servo AF, you cannot focus and recompose.
I have just shot some Mexican dancers who were involved in some very lively dancing. I was shooting in the portrait (vertical) position and the highest focus point I could achieve was on the dancer's chests. I want the dancer's face in focus not her chest. I was shooting with a rather large aperture in order to separate the dancer from the background.
I am thinking that I could possibly use live view with face detection but, in a situation when there is bright sun shining over my shoulder, I would need to use my Hoodman loupe in order to see image on my LCD. That would negate the advantage of touch screen.
Can any of you suggest a way to shoot this and have my focus nailed on the dancer's face (preferably in her eyes!)?????
