Yay, more pancakes! I'd love to have another.

I absolutely love the IQ of the 6D
It;s amazing, isn't it? Smooth, sharp, clean images.QuoteMy only beef is the AF performance pretty much sails out the window the moment the sun drops. Dusk shooting is all about MF in my experience.
Now this I'm going to have to disagree with. Using center point AF with L lenses, the lowlight focus is the best I've used on any Canon DSLR.
How about a mirrorless full frame camera stuck in an AE1 type body? No autofocus, full manual controls and good
battery life. Oh, wait - that's a Fuji XT1 in manual mode.
I also do not understand why folks want reach for these microscopic bodies. I might be way off here, but mirrorless needs to be small. Period.
Later I realized that the AF is just too slow still. It's a very nice camera, but when I lose a good shot because the AF just doesn't hack an average situation, then I have to rethink my strategy.
Don't blame the camera for your deficiencies! The thing works just fine, all YOU have to do is to use it for what it is meant to be! I am sure you are one of those people who were whining because the ipad didn't have a keyboard and stuff
I did get a SL1 when it was on sale here on Amazon.com, and that one I fell in love with. Yes, it's still a little bigger than a M, but the AF works great, picture quality is better, I can assign the focus to the back button, it takes all my crop lenses without adapter, it's like a little 7D. I still use that one all the time.
Canon has the best and fastest service for professionals - hands down.
I still don't see wedding photographers using more than entry level camera bodies, I've certainly never seen a 1D.
IMHO the 7D shouldn't even be mentioned with the 5D III, 6D, 1DX, or the 5D II for wildlife.
OTOH Poul Souders took his prize winning polar bear pic with a 7D and 10-22m lens:
It is all about technique, especially spending the time.
3. I still don't get all the fuss over Fuji's x APS-C sensors. Before Christmas I bought an XE1 and returned it a couple of weeks later, assuming that the unsharp results, especially in photos where the subject wasn't close, were the result of a defect in the camera or lens, but I don't think they were - I've looked at countless images online taken by fans of these cameras (not to mention the comparisons you can make at dpreview) and seen much the same lack of sharpness. There may be less noise than on images taken with other APS-C bodies, but there's less detail. Frankly, I prefer the images I get from my SL1, extra noise and all. Again, the differences aren't so noticeable if you don't scrutinize closely, and if you care more about noise than detail it won't matter, but if you do.... (Even some Fuji fans acknowledge this - e.g. whatsisname at soundimageplus says they're his favorite cameras to use, but he much prefers the images from his a6000, not to mention a7& a7r.)
So "4x5, 8x10 spanks you all" and so he chooses...the aps-c, because it's not that much worse than full frame.
That makes no sense.
I hope they bring back the f/1.0 - just sharper!
+1...without focus shift. Sharp from wide open to f2.8
Sharp ... you mean like how the Sigma 50/1.4 Art is sharp? Or sharp as in how the 50/1.2L is sharp?
Sharper than 85L II @ f1.2 and no AF issues like ART
Granted the white balance is off, but otherwise you are stupefied that a camera with 50% more pixels on the same sensor size and mounted to a lens that frame the subject 50% tighter gives you more details? Now I'm stupefied...
