Lol! The number of times that's happened to me!
Without having handled a 6D, I can only speculate, but unless your local price differential is huge, I'd still go for the 5D3.
Couple of things bother me about the 6D as a full rame camera - first, the 97% viewfinder instead of 100%. OK
, might not seem like a big deal, and it isn't usually when dealing with standard - telephoto lenses ... but when trying to make best use of your WA
lenses (which is of course a big part of going FF
), that extra 3% becomes quite noticeable.
An 11 pt AF
system seems to leave something to be desired. One thing that often surprises people coming to FF
from cropped is how small a area of the image is covered by the AF
points. With FF
, good AF
is not only about speed and accuracy, but also coverage. The 5D/5D2 were partly limited by both poor covereage and relatively poor sensitivity of the outer AF
Now if the 11 points on the 6D are well spaced and of decent sensitivity, there may not be a problem - but this is certainly something I'd wait to find solid info on before purchasing (unless of course you're happy with focus and re-compose).
