What I was trying to show was that the AF accuracy at f1.6 was way more than f5.6. To this end the 2m dof was 'very narrow' compared with the 12m dof that f5.6 would have given.
The examples were in reply to the comments you made about this, and could be demonstrated by attaching the very small, but fast loading files.
Thanks again for the sample shots and all your work on this topic. Your samples match my experience with the 6D AF. Its very precise and accurate for non-action photography and works well with wide apertures.
Been reading this discussion for days and days. I also find my 6D outer points very, very accurate for still objects and portrait stuff. It is reliable, and way better than my 400D's focus system. I know the XTi is a 2006 camera, but it too had only one cross-type point and 8 non cross points, however the 6D's outer points are in another league. Just because the outer points are not cross type, doesn't make it equal to the Rebel. At least in my experience.
I cannot, however, compare it with a newer Rebel with 9 cross-type points.
