Bad...well I miss the joystick, even after a year, and outer focus points are not reliable even when they indicate AF was achieved, which is not often anyway. And getting there without a joystick is just too cumbersome to even try
I don't have the 6D but isn't it like every other Canon body where you can hit the AF pt button and can then rapidly scroll thru all (the few) AF points superfast using the control wheel? On bodies with few AF points i found this method quick and easy to do without removing the camera from my head, and often far easier than the joystick.
And to the OP, I hope you got a great deal on the 6D, IMO, Canon's best IQ FF body so far.
Thanks for this tip! I'll try it out hopefully today when I get back from work!
I've been watching 6D prices ever since it came out. I shopped around and found some good deals but the retailers were unknown and had additional hidden fees so in the end I played it safe and just ordered from Amazon. I mean for the sake of $30 more I get some piece of mind! Ended up at ¥153,800 (about $1500) which is about average I guess.
Sold my 5D2 for ¥130,000 and with the Amazon selling fee I end up with ¥120,000. This upgrade cost me around $300 which isn't too bad, I definitely made more than that from paid work in the last two years so I'd say I'm even!
