I'm a bit disappointed with the rumored number of AF points, but I was also disappointed with the 6Ds specs. I bought the 6D anyway, and am anything but disappointed. It would have to be a mini 1DX for me to consider getting another body. We will see
I sold my 7D to help finance my 6D purchase. I'm so glad that I did. Image quality is far superior in my opinion. For my style of shooting, I don't need 19 AF or the faster shutter. The only real issue I have is the lack of a pop up flash or some form of wireless transmission for my flash. Of course, now I don't need the flash anymore with the ISO performance :p
Would the Sigma be noticeably better than the 24-105 on a 6D? Most of my photos of cosplay are between 24 and 35mm. I'm very happy with the 105 so far. I already have a 40 2.8 and a 50 1.4 so maybe I'm getting too redundant. Something about primes intrigues me though. I think I have this desire to take the sharpest photo ever . I'll consider renting one for my next event.
I upgraded from the 7D to the 6D. Low light images are vastly improved. I don't really notice any difference in AF performance. I think the 7D AF was prob overkill for my shooting style. I mostly shoot events where it's fairly dark or where I need to shoot small aperture. I shot a car show mostly at f/8 and ISO 3200. I needed no NR except in shots where I messed up exposure and had to correct in LR. I have a grip so it fits my large hands better. I adapted to the lack of a joystick within the first hour, but I admit that I shoot the center point mostly anyway. I'm very satisfied with my purchase.
Great pics. I love my 6D. I'm looking forward to renting a 300 f/4 IS for an upcoming event. I'm already in love with the 24-105. I'm still not sure which would be better for me. The 300 or the 100-400. I should have it figured out in 6 months. Thx for the pics.
I'm considering putting together a kit for reach with my 6D. I'm looking at the 300 f/4 IS with 1.4 or the 400 5.6. Im not sure which set up would give me the best sharpness. I'm also planning on shooting indoor events where I may not be able to get close to the stage, which is why I considered the IS. I'll be renting one of the lenses and was wondering if anyone had experience with either.
I upgraded from the 7D to the 6D. The 7D is still great, but I needed high ISO performance for events, and the 6D does not disappoint. In low light, it basically becomes a 1 point AF DSLR, but that one point grabs focus like a tractor beam . For my style, FF is the way to go.
Is it possible to do this on my friend's 7D without jailbreaking a device? The camera adapter from apple makes it a snap to transfer photos, but no control or live view. I'm really liking the wifi control on the 6D, but I wonder if its the way of the future or a gimmick.
