Does Anyone Have Hands On Experience Of The 6D?

Fri Mar 22, 2013 11:02 pm

I'm looking to purchase my first FF camera and the 6D is being offered at an attractive price. I have read reviews, most of which pitch it up against the 5D3. Obviously the 5D3 is a better camera, but at just shy of £1000 more, it's not really an option for me. Has anyone any hands on experience of the 6D ? Are there any photos in the database here taken with a 6D ? Many thanks in advance, for your help.

I think the 6D is a great, affordable option. It's a very impressive camera. I don't think it's fair to compare it to the 5D3. A better comparison would be the 5D2. In fact, had I not gotten a used 5D2 less than a month before the 6D was announced I would have gotten the 6D.

Full frame is great. I has had a huge impact on my photography. If you can afford a 5D3, go for that. If not, the 6D is impressive. While its limited on focus points, that center point can out focus the 5D3 in low light. And high ISO performance beats the 5D3 according to some reports.

Thanks Ryan for the advice. Just purchased a 6D, just have to wait now for a little dry weather to give it a go.
